    On this particular kit, be sure to check out how the wheels and body fit on the chassis -- the body can end up sitting too high because of the leaf springs.

    Can't find your posts on your builds. Post a couple here for feedback.

    If it can help answer a question and propose a solution, of course it should be posted. And even if it's to say "I did this too," there might be some information there. No harm, no foul.

    The parts he has are chrome. He wants to make them gold.

    What part are you missing? Is it shown in the instructions? I might have a spare.

    Sounds good. How will you keep the wires from unraveling? I'm going to school on your approaches.
    Looks easy enough to do, but I'm wondering if there might be commercially available wire in this small size for a lazy guy like me.

    It doesn't seem like it, but it's a very tense, and intense game. Kind of like a spy movie where you have to cut the red or green cord on the bomb, and they can't touch each other.

    Well, Jean Shepherd was already mentioned, and his work encompassed so much more than automotive. Anyone remember his PBS series, "Jean Shepherd's America," plus lots of radio... Not to mention "A Christmas Story"?

    PS .. Some members of this forum (not me, maybe Harryp) know how to put clear yellow over chrome plating to creat a shiny gold/brass effect.

    If that's what you want, get Revell's "Museum" edition, which already has the chrome parts plated gold. Usually available on eBay.
    This kit version also has pre-cut white top fabric and wood dash veneer, plus museum-style rope and post for display, plus plastic wire wheels (NOT plated) instead of the original kit's covered wheels.

    "Car & Driver" (originally "Sports Cars Illustrated") has featured the best automotive journalists ever, whose work was often brilliant and transcended the category. Among my favorites were Ken  Purdy, Brock Yates, David E. Davis and Csaba Csere.
    OOPS -- almost forgot about the great Denise McCluggage, a former race car driver and photographer who contributed often to the magazine. She passed away just a year ago.

    Are you sure that isn't an Alvis?
    PS...it looks fine if you click on the image.
