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
I have been debating on the rear slicks and this last set up pictures has made my decision. The ones on the model are too big. So I will be taking them off and trying to find something that looks closer to what was on the car.
Finished the decals last night. I need to reapply the BMF to the lower windshield trim and as soon as I get the new windshield I will be able to finish it up. I am also waiting on a PE carb linkage set to finish up the carburetor and permanently mount it. I am hoping the parts show up today or tomorrow. I finished up the disc brakes, the real car had 65 V8 Mustang spindles, 89 Ford Ranger rotors, 90 Chevy S10 calipers and Cadillac brake hoses and an adapter kit from Scarebird Fabrications. The chrome pens are awesome for touching up the BMF. I will finish detailing my trailer and the hitch on the truck and I will have a miniature of my tow rig. I set it on the bench last night. Boy does that bring back memories. I sold the truck when we moved to Louisville and I sold the race car a year and half later, and my trailer was stolen so I no longer have any these in real life any more lol... Here are some pictures.
The repaint was successful. I did hit one snag, I broke the windshield so Hi had to find another 64 Thunderbolt on eBay to get another windshield. The BMF (looks lumpy in the pictures but better in person) is done and the window channels and inside trim is painted and the rear and side glasses are installed. I made them from sheet stock. I started on the decals which is my favorite part of a build. I am really happy with the way it's tuning out. I wish some of my detail work was a little cleaner but that's where my vision for the build exceeds my skill set.
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
