      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    AMT 58 Edsel
    Looking for an AMT 58 Edsel kit. I don't need the wheels, tires or engine (I going to make a gasser out of it) 
    I have a few kits for trade.

    I am loving this build, I am putting together parts to do something similar only not quite as wild.
    I like everything about it so far except the hood scoop, its a little to bulky and has too much Mopar flavor in it... lol

    That looks great Niko, I wouldn't be too happy if I raced the same lane after someone who used Solder Seal in their race car though, lol...

    I did some more over the weekend. BMF, windows, tachometer, wiring and starter solenoid, master cylinder and proportioning valve, fuel pressure regulator and gauge, checked length of fuel line to carb. I'm waiting on some PE carb linkage before I mount the carb permanently. I made the support braces and test fitted them to see if there was enough clearance, added fuel pump and filter, 1/2" copper fuel line, and the hardware for the fuel cell mounts. Replaced the steering wheel with one that looked better, mounted body, mounted rear end, mounted radiator, electric fan, radiator supports, made radiator hoses, mounted alternator and charge wire, added tie down chain and hardware.

    Thanks Tom.
    I tried several sets of headers and much like the real car none would clear the spring towers. So I used some solder and I'm making my own.
    This solder is the perfect size for the primaries and is super soft. I super glued the ends where the collector goes and drilled a hole in the middle of the four pipes and glued a rod in the middle and then a bigger piece of tube stock. Then I put on some shrink tube, shrank it and then put on another layer of shrink tube to make the collector.
    I will use some more tube stock to make the turn downs.
    I took the carb back off because I have ordered a Detail Master carburetor PE linkage and bracket set. I am going try another first for me and use the tungsten filament from an 1157 bulb as the throttle return spring.
    I also added some nuts to the coil overs and detail painted the rearend. I had two different springs rates on the back of the car hence the silver and dark blue springs.
    The steering wheel is installed.

    Great job.
    I love these old IMC / MPC / Heller / Lendberg / AMT / Union kits.
     
    I have built the Ford Mark 4, the Ferrari 512M, the Porsche 908 and just picked up the Chaparral 2E and Lola T70 and I am going to build them both.
