    Clayton, I know exactly where you are coming from, and have to say you made the right decision.  I've been working for the same place for 10+ years and when I was single it was easier to deal with the lean times especially since that left me more time to do side jobs, but now that I have a 7 month little girl, it's not so easy and any side jobs take away from time with the family, so that's a double edged sword.  Things have picked way up at work, and that takes away a huge weight from my shoulders, so I know first hand that the ability to put food on the table will greatly improve things all around.  Good luck with everything!

    They're definitely not like jb weld.  They're a lot heavier than a typical resin part, they have a real grainy texture where the pour spout was.  They also have a shine in places that is definitely metallic, almost like an older pewter piece.  It's not pewter.  I'm imagining that these castings date to the 80's, possibly from illini replicas?  I haven't had a chance to really play around with them or get any pics.

    aluminum resin?
    I recently ended up with a few older resin truck conversions of unknown origin, they are cast in a dark grey resin that seems to be impregnated with aluminum powder, has anyone encountered this before?  How is it to work with?  I would assume that it would be more brittle than typical resins.  Anything else I need to watch out for?  One of them has the quarter fenders molded to it and they would have to be removed if I were looking to make the hood operate.  Any advantages of this type of resin over others?  Thanks for the help.

    My confusion lies more in the fact that he didn't deliver the mail, but did deliver a note saying he couldn't deliver it?  Seems to me that if you couldn't deliver one you couldn't deliver the other?  If it was possible to walk all the way up my unsafe walkway and porch to drop a piece of paper in the mail slot wouldn't it also be possible to drop the mail in with it....just trying to use common sense.

    I think I would have figured it out when we stopped getting mail.  He didn't have to risk life and limb to let me know.

    Last winter after one of the big snow storms, I got a not from our mail carrier stating that he could not deliver the mail due to the walkway not being clear enough.  The thing that confused me was that he walked up the walkway, up onto the porch, and delivered the note, but couldn't deliver the mail?   I'm still confused by this almost a year later.

    Dennis, I knew I had seen this discussed somewhere before, here is a link to an aths  forum discussing this.  Doesn't go into enough detail to build it, but it it's a start.

    Also, I believe the company still exists as a Barnhart company, you might try contacting them.  
     
    Hope this helps.

    You're 100% correct. Although the flip side to that would be "ignorance is bliss", but not totally sure I'd buy into that cliché.

    True, but then you can't see what they're saying behind your back....

    What are the chances of these kits being reissued? We're the molds used for anything else or changed over the years? I'd love to see these reissued so I don't have to spend a small fortune to get one.

    Testors flat white being an enamel paint won't work on vinyl tires which might explain the poor coverage.

    If I were going to build one of these, I'd personally go with the gw trucks hood, as the aitm and plaskit hoods aren't as accurate. It also has the suspension parts to "modernize" the front end. Just my 2 cents
