      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Terry the Kramer Wrecker was originally a dump truck working the coal pits in Eastern PA before being converted to a wrecker in  '66 it used double wall frame rails. I'm glad you found my photos helpful. for the fenders on your model I would go with diamond plate that I feel would be more period correct.

    IIRC cyclone wheels were an aftermarket manufacturer. Owned by Fenton. If someone could send me a high resolution jpg of just the center cap I can probably reduce it down to proper size and reproduce a decal. PM me. free decal will be offerd for a SASE
     Art I agree with you when you say about about closing one eye about looking at things to get a perspective on things. I have found that out quite by accident from my eye injuries, However I do believe the rear quarter window is in the wrong position and the drip rail needs rework. And I think the rear roof curvature is a bit too abrupt causesing the c pillar to look a bit odd. I'm not sold on the inner front wheel wheels either. I'm knot nocking the kit I still like it can't wait to building it .I  just got a lot of projects on the bench and want to gather a lot of parts to build a pro touring version. And see what other people are building and learning along the way. I'm looking forward to the SOHC version. I did a little experimenting, playing with parts box pars and found the Tublar Arm package from the LX mustang and the Floor pan fromthe trumpeter Falcon would be nice upgrades and would give some additional chassis options with simple mods for a pro touring version. giving a wider rear tubs, updated front suspension and more spacious trans tunnel. now looking to source a nice 9 inch and 3 or four link with coil oversthink interior will be sport seats with the seat pattern from the original comet molded in. wheels will be 1/24th 70 mustang 5 spokes with low pro tires to look like taller wheels.

    Bill, I haven't been on the board much. You know what my issues are and how it has affected me over the years. I had one eye knock out it's crushed socket and lots of repairs done to put me back together. You are lucky and smart enough to realize you had an issue and got it taken as soon as possible.The doctors can do amazing things and Faith and prayers will get you through this. Take your time on your recovery don't be in too much of a hurry to return to work. Give your body time to heal. Trying to get back to work and straining your eyes for 40+ hrs. a week is not going to do you any favors. Recovery doesn't come without pain. You've overcome many issues in your life because you took it upon yourself to take care of yourself. Prayers are going out for you. I know that you will be fine with time and each day will be better that the previous.
    I wish you the very best my friend.

  12. Bowtienutz added a post in a topic 1970 Challenger Dick Landy's Super Stock   

    Beautiful; job I always loved the car . Don't get me wrong I'm not questing your building skills but I have questions. The landy car challenger PS of this error looked to have a 71 style a 71 style grille I haven't seen a photo of of one with this grille. The Black painted on the car almost always looked kinda brown was this a phenomenon of the film used in the day. or was it actually black. Thanks for sharing you did a great Job and I'm very impressed.

    I placed an order through ebay for some of his products. I exchanged a few emails he said my order was shipped yet he couldn't provide a tracking number. He sent resent another. after waiting another 6 weeks and more emails I proviided ebay copies of all his email and paypal refunded my money. Only thing unfair is that I could leave bad feedback on him because it beyond the window to leave feedback. I'm sure his feedback does not reflect his true dealings. I've seen his products I'd like to deal with him but I just can't take the chance of the deal going wrong again and ebay telling me sorry we helped you once but ....
