    Slixx had a bad batch of decals a number of years ago......are your new issue decals or older items. You are doing nothing wrong....the clear carrier was applied wrong....to thick, thin or an issue with type of carrier.  If you just bought them I'd check with Slixx. I've manufactured decals for almost 40 years....happens to the best.

Tires are black vinyl and all new tooling. Kit has a engine and interior details.....full suspension. Hope to start building today. Thanks!

    I really like the Pro-Weld.....the Plastruct really irritates my nose for some reason. thx

    I have never heard where or if the tooling is still around. Being owned by a toy company tool disposition is a little different.....they are in the habit of scraping old tooling faster than kit companies. It could be sitting at a tooling company of it it went over seas it might be part of that Subaru you saw today!

    The BMW kit like the Rover was a full detail kit.  I'd buy any of the others.....the 911, TR7/8 and 924 if the include the racing parts and stock parts. Decent little kits.
  9. Dave Van added a post in a topic QUESTION ? Laramie Stage Ghost 1/16 scale Pyro C85-400   

    Never heard that before....My kit is a junker that's incomplete.....I'd ask over on Dave's Showrod forum.   The grille is the same as the other Pyro T's  of the era....IIRC

  11. Dave Van added a post in a topic My Goal For 2016 - Buy A New Mustang GT Premium Before 2017   

    My son just bought this candy apple red Mustang 4 cyl turbo about two months ago.  He loves it......way too fast of a car for him....but he pays the bill so what do you do???
    The sort time he's had it it's been perfect....but at the price they should be good cars!! That's his Civic si he traded for the mustang.
    I'll keep my 66 Mustang 2+2 289  4 spd  thx

    I like, and own, the altered Magnum kit. It is much 'cooler' than the stock version and not some horrible thing that was done to a stock kit you could buy off the close out shelf for 99 cents. (I had it too) Sure....if the stock kit was reissued I'd buy 2-3 of them for sure.......same for the Magnum kit too though......
  13. Dave Van added a post in a topic Anything Good at Harbor Freight?   

    I get all kinds of 1/1 car stuff there. A palm size LED flashlight that was free w/coupon and $5 other items is one great item.I buy my car work rags and work gloves.   2 ton engine host we bought in 2004 has been used a lot and always works.
    Model wise not a ton of stuff....but some of their small tools are OK.

    My G4 came from Squadron online. They had a sale and then if you filled out a survey another 20% off. 
    The T came from Amazon.

    All four kits shown share a chassis and engine. The bodies are slightly different to make them Plymouth or Dodges.
