    That's a good one Tom.
    I tried everything to use the [i m g] in the above post and could not get it to work. While doing that my computer CRASHED. Now it can not find a Boot Disc
    Fortunately I had a new one about ready to go and I 'm now on it  
    I'll stick the Copy Paste or the Forum Code link if I want it to be able to link to Fotki.

    Can you post a photo of the real car hood you want?

    I'm in that TV commercial, it was filmed at the Goodyear mall.
    The Goodyear mall is larger and Way newer and they have free coffee.  IT is at I-10 and Dysart next to the Lowe's store.
    I'm there three days a week in the mornings.

    Just a few miles west of that one at Astrella. You can see it just south of I-10. Most of the Testors bottle paint is gone, they were $1.00ea.
    Do you ever go into the Brass Armadillo antique mall at Dysart & McDowell?

    Both spray cans. The Dupli-Color can says "Acrylic Lacquer Clear Coat"

    More nice ones Tom. I think the Jeep is Spec-Cast. They did a panel also.
    Here's you a very nice Chevy van in 1/25 by Diecast Promotions.

    Had to make a seat bracket as well. 


    I'm going to have to strip the paint and start over. Way too many paint chips. I ordered some Prairie gold and new decals.

    You are correct Harry.  I'm one of the serious diecast fans and actually get more enjoyment altering one than building a kit from start.  With about 40000 pcs, I have plenty to lay with.  At least a few of the resin bodies out there have been cast off of diecast models.
     
    Tom, I think the Chevy wrecker is Saico. I have a couple stashed here somewhere for the beds. Like you I also  have a few of the panels and step vans. The First Gear trucks are real nice. 
    I saw a 1960 Ranchero today by MoterMax that looked pretty good. It measured about 8in long.

    Jonathan, That one is more detailed than mine,lol  I noticed the front axle is different, maybe because it's a GB.
    Thanks for posting them.  I think I have one like that NF also.
     
    Lance, That is what I use. It is a better one at round $30.00. I tried one of those $7.00 ones and throw it away. 
    The best tool I have is the ceramic plate that has the holes in it. It doesn't effect the heat transfer and is perfectly flat. You can stick pins in the holes to help hold items together as well.

    Walmart Kits & O'Reilly's Paint sale
    Our WallyMart has all the kits and paint on mark down with the big red sale tags. Looks like they are cleaning them out again.
    O'Reilly Auto Parts has all the Dupli-Color engine paint in the 12oz cans marked down to $5.49. Maybe they are changing them over to the smaller 8oz? cans like their other paint.
    That engine paint goes on nice and is rated for 500 degrees, good for us Arizona builders

    That is looking quite nice. 
    Are you planning on making the "Ranger" emblem for the grill?
