  1. Good ideas. I always liked those NASCAR trucks and had a couple, but never built them. I did use a NASCAR suspension on a 64 Chevy pickup. Definitely gets it low with little to no mods. Thanks. Glad you're liking it. Later-
  2. Sledsel- Definitely not taken as a criticism. I appreciate the input. I never even realized that I had done it differently from one to the other. Isn't that strange that I didn't? Now I'm thinking about trying it on another kit to see which I like better. You're correct that the bed does look like a Dodge bed now. Never realized that either.... Thanks again for the input! Later-
  3. I think I'm going with a two tone paint. The light gold will be the main color and root beer for the bottom and the roof. I got the side trim made tonight for the passenger side. Made of U channel with a thin, flat strip inside the chanel. Later-
  4. I'm thinking of adding lower body trim and doing this in the tab and root beer on the bottom similar to this pickup. So, I dug through my strip styrene and ame up with enough of two types that will work to make side trim. Later-
  5. Yeah, I'm not sure I like it. I have some cans of AMC Big Bad Blue.... Later-
  6. I dug through my paints today and came up with this Dupli-Color Perfect Match Toyota paint. I don't know what the color name is since I no longer have the cap and Dupli-Color was only kind enough to print the color name on the cap. It is a light metallic gold. I don't yet know if this will be the final color or if it will be a base for something else. Later-
  7. Still looking for any parts for these. Please hit me up if you have something and we can work something out. Later-
  8. I'd be interested in them. Please let me know if they are still available. Later-
  9. Thanks Guys for the info. Yeah, the Pumping Iron is a 79 and the Warlock is a 77. Thanks for the info. I could use the more readily available 78 for the Warlock and the Tuff Monster truck, if I want to do a 2WD. Right now I just want to get a small stash of parts and see what will work. I was hoping someone had some old, unloved P. I. or Warlock parts laying around. Later-
  10. I am new to Kentucky. Moved here in February from Eastern Washington State. I hope I can make it to the contest and I'll keep in touch with you to meet up. I'll PM you. Later-
  11. Looking for a hood and grill that will fit the Tuff Monstertruck kit. Preferably a stock hood. Also looking for a hood, grill and tailgate for the Pumping Iron Dodge. Need a hood and bed (or stepside tailgate, bumper and taillights) for the Warlock Dodge. These don't need to be for those specific kits but I'd like to ensure they fit correctly. Also looking for stock suspensions for these- either 2WD or 4WD. Please let me know what you may have. I have lots of parts to trade. Later-
  12. Got home and these were waiting on me from the Postman. Got them off of Marketplace. The bagged kit is a 68 or 69 Olds- not sure. The AMX is in decent shape and complete. Glad to have another with the stock hood. Got the AMX for $15 and the Olds for $10. Later-
  13. Driving home this morning and saw a Yard Sale sign. Stopped to find most of the normal garbage. I asked if they had any model kits. The guy brought out these that he had said he had for years. Both complete and unstarted. The Duster is still sealed inside. Got them both for $15. Now I'm looking for more Yard Sales on the way home. Just stopped at my second. Lol. Later-
  14. Great stance and color choice. It may be a bit late now with the dark body color but a white or silver roof would look great! Silver would probably cover the green better. Later-
  15. I love what you have done to this and I really like the B400 body. I have wanted to build one of those for a long time. This is really moving me to start one. You're going to Louisville next month? I am also planning to go. I'd love to meet up and get a closer look at this. Later-
  16. Got these Dodge pickups and the Firebird delivered today. Got them cheap off of FB Marketplace. The black Dodge has a Chevy bed. Now to find the missing parts I need to rebuild the pickups. I didn't know guy was throwing in the 63 Galaxie parts. Later-
  17. If you get to Spokane, WA there is B&B Hobbies on Fracis Ave. Been in business since early 60's. Wide selection of kits and stuff. Later-
  18. That's funny...I think I started mine around that time too. Somewhere in the mid 90's. Someday I'll finish it. Later-
  19. So far it is just square styrene. I stalled out trying to make a custom chassis for it. My plan is to get back on it very soon. I reworked the front and rear window frames after the chop to bring them back to stock height. I also cleaned up the bottoms of fenders and made new running boards so that the bottom was all on one plane. And sectioned the cab 1/8 inch. What other plans do you have for yours? Later-
  20. I like the mods so far. The widened fenders are a must. Where is the bed floor from? The Chrysler 300? I like it. I have a 55 Ford that I have been pecking away at for years that I have modified every part of. This makes me want to do some more pecking on it. Later-
  21. Did some clean up to the body last night to get the fenders smooth and identical, one side to the other. Also started the framework for the rear airbags and narrowed the front track just a tad. Not much as far as difference in photos from before but a solid 4 hours of work put in last night. I think I have settled on a body color but not certain yet. Still a lot of work to be done. I tried to take some pics that showed off the shape of the body a bit more but not sure it worked. Later-
  22. What might you be looking for in trade for the 67 Cyclone? Later-
  23. I picked this up off of FB Marketplace and got it in the mail yesterday. Sealed inside. One of my favorites and have been looking for another at a good price for a while. Later-
