  1. Foxer added a post in a topic Posting Your Build on the Other Guy’s Thread   

    I do do it occasionally, but only if it backs up a point being discussed or something similar. Sometimes I just put a link if it's not critical to add a photo for the discussion.
    I do try to be respectful of the builder ... it's his/her showcase.

    A wonderful build of this beauty!

    Badluck is going to have to watch his daughter close, but she'll probably be wanting a plow for HER truck next winter.
    Mine is going to be 40 this year, so I have no control

    That's very cool!
    I did the same with my baby ... and she drove the 5th Porsche after this to her High School Prom.

    There's also a trick with the angle doing the chrome, so I expect brass would be the same. Apply it at an angle to the surface you're spraying

    You'd need to define "fast" better for me as I believe FAST includes corners. I think most here wouldn't make the first one! 
     
    but all look cool and meet one definition of FAST! 

  9. Foxer added a post in a topic Question about glue   

    I use Testors 3507AT Liquid Cement for jobs I want a good bond, like the dismal tube glue we all used ... no strings attached.
    A liquid glue, like Ambroid or TX-7 is also very good where it will flow into a tight joint. (sorry, my spelling bad and can't run down to check right now)
    You should also have a medium CA glue. It is gel constancy and stays where you put it and gives you time to place next piece with slower curing time. I have never had any luck with thin super glue. It is a pain to apply, cures too face and the tube is dried up the next time I go to use. I like the Zap A Gap because it stays liquid to the end of the bottle!
    The links are just for your reference to see what I'm talking about.

    Jimmy Flintstone has a '51, but it's a pretty radical resin custom.

    My Daughter has a few ... she used to stop by the house with 10 dogs unleashed ... and never had an incident with them.
    This is a video on Facebook so you all know: Love Us and Leave Us

    There are many models on here with custom upholstery that should give you ideas. I would use some plastic strips and round the edges before gluing to a base made from anything .. plastic best so you can glue the strips easily. I've uses thin half round strips to tuck n roll, but for wide flat pleats you have to use flat strips. You have plenty of strips available to pick from.  You'll have to use strips thin enough to allow then to wrap around the seat tops.
    I did a google search and this should do it for ya.  ... http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/85175-new-tuckn-roll-interiors/
    This should look cool .. be sure to let us see!!
