      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

  1. tubbs added a post in a topic '68 road runner....My first car.   

    very nice build Walter, love the 1:1 also. my first muscle car was also a 68 runner I picked up after graduation in 78. had a grenaded 383 4 speed that i paid $400 for. we limped it home and replaced it with a 440. oh, those were the days.
    getting back to your build and the Keith Marked decals. i don't see your pie tin air cleaner, so i was wondering, I have a set of 68-70 road runner Keith Marks decals. it does not have the "383 road runner" pie tin nor the rear tail panel decal on it. is there a separate 1968 runner decal set? did you sand down the rear tail lights to make everything even? sorry for the late questions and conversation. haven't been here for a while and just saw the post.
    ps - my dream car is an A12 runner. would love to follow your build. waaaay back in 1988, sold a 69 hemi runner for the chance to buy a green ex/black int 440 6 bbl runner, the deal fell thru and i ended up getting my pro street runner, big financial loss, but happy with the pro street car.

    hmmmm.... your not so bad after all. I wonder if that will work? not having any luck getting them anyways. that's OK was a shot in the dark. may have to wait for a show to get them. thanks for all your help.

    party pooper...... never did think of that body line. thanks. would still be a cool conversion, just take more than I wanted to do.
    so, I guess I am scratching the Ford body and just looking for the merc now.

    49 merc woody and 49 ford bodies....
    I think this is going to be a tough one, but I am looking for the recent issue 49 mercury woody. looking for complete body and dash only. Also, hopefully a 49 ford body. I just need the complete front clip on that one. you can probably see where I am going with this.. I would take a whole kit in trade if necessary. have things to trade.
    btw - has anyone tried to convert these 2 together? are they far off? if so, I may scratch the 49 ford from the want list.
     
    thanks.......

    thanks Steve. really nice jog on that stripe. I thought it came out of the kit that way. a viper motor would fit in there real nice, Steve....and you need to get that 65 out again... I know.. sorry for drifting the thread. id that a resin body? sorry.
  11. tubbs added a post in a topic 70 dodge superbee pro-touring update 07/14/16   

    looking good Steve. like that stripe. is that one in the Dirty Donn kit? also, had reserves about the shaker, once done and painted, it looks really nice. like the side by side shot.
    .. and what's the deal with the 65 in the background?
     
  12. tubbs added a post in a topic Your advice needed for this OMNI project   

    good job, see, opened my mouth when you knew exactly what was going on. I have a few of those chassis, maybe I will look into it. keep us posted. when I start mine, I will post up, a few too many projects ahead of it.
    56, only age better is any number less than 56. you weren't born in November, where you?
  13. tubbs added a post in a topic Your advice needed for this OMNI project   

    hey!! watch it. I'm only 56. just getting to the prime of my life.  that is looking really cool. I am a bet old school when it comes to bodies, instead of "bowing" the body. trim the wheel wells to match the curve of the body and maybe cut down the rear axle to fit those meats in or cut any flange that stops the rear wheel from sliding over the axle. this will let the tire slide further down the axle to fit inside the body properly. absolutely love that dual plug hemi in there.

    I have to double check that is the kit I have at home. if so, I would be interested if you still have them.
