    A source of pedals is the small Parts Number tags on the "trees" . File to shape . Proceed to suspend (pendulum) or drill a hole in the floor and glue in stretched sprue of correct length/diameter . Notch the backside to locate/center the newly shaped  pedal to install to the top of the 'arm" . paint it and call it a day when done .. I hope this helps .. Thanx ..

    Custom NON Stock Wheels for Trade
    I just completed downsizing kits , again . Close to 50 kits . Removing from boxes - removing from "Trees" all the parts - Purging parts I won't use . Bagging the remainder of my WIP's for uncomplicated storage .
         My Point is this .
            I have quite a large want list . I seek anything on it . NOT all from one trade for a lopsided trade . I will not give these away no matter how much you try to guilt me . The list contains many Various common , uncommon , rare pieces and those not used on modified cars .
       Anyone want two piece hard plastic kit tires or Drag Slicks ?
          More parts to follow later .. PM me for p[articular wants .. Thanx ..

  4. dimaxion added a post in a topic Alternate Tires for Ecto-1???   

    IIRC , the Caddies used for Ambulance Service Conversions used 9.00 X 15 Wheel/Tire Combos . The '64 Caddies used 8.00 X 14 Wheel/Tire Combos . The kits do not have modified wheel openings , Polar Lights nor AMT Ertl version . The latter (AMT - and first Movie Car) kit had some Tire / Wheel combo from left field (IMHO Trash for my needs) being NASCAR (early '70's) Speedway tires ??
       Modelhaus did offer a conversion . The Model pictured here seems right as I used one of these for this Circa 1959 Ambulance  . I spent 17 months fixing the roof for this to be right .

        The lower picture you've posted is a Snapshot of the Movie Car (1:1) . For a '64 use larger Tires than the JoHan Kit . Monogram Wide Whites perhaps .

    Modelhause made a '59 Lincoln Continental . The '58 was a John Hier  product . The headlight pods are framed in body work as opposed to chrome as the '59 & '60 MY's . Yearly trim , lighting ect. for appearances de rigor then . Thanx ..

    Ditto .. Ditto .. Ditto ... ed Sexton and I have had conversation recently about Revelle and Customer attitude . He is a great person and I appreciate his efforts and communications . He cannot undo decades of the failures I've experienced as a Customer . IMHO , replacement parts .. lol ..    PM me for details of decades of this joke on me . He did try , he has limits also . So , is both the Revelle 1/25 Scale 1958 & 1959 Corvette not the same Car ?? Louvered Hood , Trunk Lid trim Strips of Chrome ?? Only Visually difference .. 'Corvette Blue Book' . I refuse to but any more Revelle kits .. Thanx ..
