    That is major ... chassis painted in final color! ... I usually take a week off, myself, after such a milestone.

    Just the painting Black is evil to me, but that does look evil .. and that black looks fantastic!

    I used to take my Porsches to a Jaguar place that raced and did a lot of customer race car work. They always had old Jags and always an engine sitting all alone ... I would always stop to gaze over that amazing piece of art!

    Yeah, I've been searching ebay for a few years for a Heller kit of the Coupe so I'm really happy to see they have put it out again! A Revell coupe will be a parts kit maybe ..no other use for it.

    Very interesting. That tall clamp has 1.5" spread. I don't need much more than 1/4" or so to press the tire out. I should be able to use pretty short lengths of tubes or dowels. Warming the tire with a hair dryer as I press should help too. I'll have to see what I have to rig that up. I'm waiting until I get the new rims before doing anything, though. I like this idea a lot.

    The lawn furniture may be the tough part. That's going to be fun raining on that.

    You have pics of the new trailer safe here now, so let the weather begin!
    It would be cool if you have photos of the 1:1 you can post here for us all with bad memories to see.
     
    and ...  it does look awesome now ... I can understand your reluctance to dirty it up, but it will look "better" once done.
  13. Foxer added a post in a topic '51 Plymouth 2/3/16 small repairs update   

    I've been continuing to tear the promo apart (laughs at promo collectors) and doing some repairs to mu crude methods. The chassis plate had an extra cut where a strip had to be put back in place. Now it curing .. epoxy, fiberglass cloth and a styrene plate on top .. mostly as a place to apply the clamps to keep everything straight. There's some wax paper on top to insure the clamps are really free of epoxy. The chip on the driver's door was also filled with a .40" thick piece.

    Here's a shot with the1/24 '50 Resin body for a size comparison.

    This sounds good ... I was worried about the temp of boiling. I'll try boiling some and letting it cool a bit where I can almost reach in. If that doesn't work it's gonna be grinding. I'l thinking I will have to grind the front face of the rims anyway so the originals only acy as wheel backs anyway.
     
    Thanks for the responses everyone!
