  1. Old style window net

    Weave some thread and make a border using paper match sticks.
  2. Detailed 4 cyl distributor?

    Welcome. They make the best ones I have every seen. I think M.A.D. makes them and SMBC (Scale Models By Chris) sells them too.

  4. The Striped Tomato

    Those ARII wheels look more like the ones used on the tv show. The kits wheels and stripes are from the movie. Wheels and tires too small and the stripe is wrong for the tv car. The tv car had more of a rearward stripe where it curves on the rear quarter. It followed the quarter behind the window where it slants and goes more to the rear before it turns forward. The movie car looks more straight down like the kit decals.
  5. Original Revell 77 Trans Am decals wanted

    Ok guys, thanks. I'm not a Trans Am guy, so have no idea myself. I'm going to send Keller all of this and let him sort it out. I'm going to try and get him to sign up here too and he can can ask next time. lol
  6. Original Revell 77 Trans Am decals wanted

    My friend showed me these and this is what he wants, but it does not show the hood decal, I'm sure he wants it too.
  7. I'm posting this question for a friend hoping someone can help. Does anybody make the original issue Revell 77 Trans Am decals? The ones with the clear background instead of the current Smokey and The Bandit reissue that has a black background between the stripes? I need the originals for my Sport Wagon project. I'm not about to paint it black to match the stripes.
  8. Correct Intake Position

    The intake is under the blower. You mean the carbs and stacks. The carbs fuel bowels face forward as in the top pic.
  9. Some of my builds

    Good looking Mopar's.
  10. Lowering Revell Nascar kits?

    They really should not be lowered at all. Rules require 4 inches of clearance around the cars when sitting still. They only get close to the ground at top speed when areo forces push the car down on the soft springs they use. They have been using the stiff bar, soft spring approach since the 90's. So, unless you have a driver in it and trying to make it look in motion, you might not want to lower it in order to make it look more authentic.
  11. 70's c10 w/ camper shell

    Good luck. I found some on e bay. I was wanting to do a stock long bed to match one that belongs to someone I know. His truck is restored with that caramel on top and the white down the side. The ones on e bay were over 100 bucks some as high as 150. I cant pay that and then spend to detail it just to give it away. If I could find a couple in my price range I would not mind doing Farmtruck as well as my friends truck.
  12. Source for treaded drag radials

    Those are Pro Street tires not drag radials. Drag radials don't have tread anyways. Just a radial ply instead of a bias ply configuration. Cheater slicks have a slight 3 grove tire tread though. You might also look at the 70 Dodge Super Bee/Coronet Pro Street car. http://www.ebay.com/itm/AMT-ERTL-PRO-STREET-70-CORONET-SUPER-BEE-1-25-MODEL-KIT-6140-SH1/351066573325?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908110712%26meid%3Dbbd9a6b9200e4cf6a7463a49deb0cff3%26pid%3D100677%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D282589637864&_trksid=p2385738.c100677.m4598
  13. NASCAR racer window 'trim'

    Depends on the year you are talking about. 90's and up, no window trim. They have a black out tape strip around the glass. It does several things. It blocks out sun, looks good, but most of all it helps to keep the Lexan windows from cracking around the edges when it's under stress. It's held down by metal brackets screwed into the sheet metal and some are screwed into the glass as well. They come in different shapes from triangle to rectangle to inside braces as well. Now the 80's and older cars have factory chrome trim and from the 60's to the 80's you'll find some to all of them have the same kind of screw in tabs that I mentioned above. I guess there was no one was to do it rule other than the windows had to be secure until the 90's when everyone pretty much used the same thing. Hope that helps.
  14. Newbie Question - 1/25 MPC Brooks Dodge Daytona

    All of those MPC kits have a generic wheel base adjustable chassis that looks nothing like what they ran in those cars back then. They used that same chassis in Dodges, Fords, and Chebby race cars. Best to find a stock Daytona and use some of the MPC race parts and body on the stock chassis. You have to remember when they ran those cars in the 70's they were still stock frame cars with reinforcements and roll cages and beefed up stock engines. That link will have some interior cage shots for Daytona's. https://www.google.com/search?q=NASCAR+Dodge+Daytona+interior&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwin5Iimhf_VAhWIyoMKHQ5JB5YQ_AUICigB&biw=1366&bih=636 There's some decent chassis pics at this link. https://www.google.com/search?biw=1366&bih=636&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=NASCAR+Dodge+Daytona+chassis&oq=NASCAR+Dodge+Daytona+chassis&gs_l=psy-ab.3...108190.109126.0.110561.
