      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 am a big olds fan and love the vistas! i am completely blown away by this build. but, i have to ask, why would you paint the engine gold? gold=350. if you had a 442 W-30 it would have a 455. blue =455. most vistas including the '70 and the '71 i had came factory with 455's. just wondering.

    i dont have a problem with scratches so much as im just not happy with the shine. ive heard of people using the same stuff and getting good results, but i just cant get the same. ive never tried anything after the scratch x. maybe i need to explore that.

    i knew someone was going to ask that. i cant remember where i got them but ill try to find out. these were the only ones i could find at the time and im not 100% happy with them. i cant figure out what actual tire tread pattern they are supposed to be. wish they were mickey tomps.

    by the way, the wheels are from the 57 chevy black widow kit. i widened the rears and added valve stems.

    66 chevy sleeper
    this is one ive been working on for a bit. my plan is a plain jain looking 66 chevy. it will have a big block chevy, steel wheels (widened for the rear)with dog dish caps, and drag radials. the pictures arent the best, but you get the idea.

    as far as the headlights go, i always drill them out and replace them with lenses. i usually put BMF on the back of the lenses, but next time im going to try to make buckets with bulbs.check out my 442 build and you can see how it looks if you drill out the molded lights.

    been away for a while. on the real cars, the 70,71,and 72 bodies are identical with the exception of the hood. the hood for the 70 is different than the 71/72. the headlight buckets are seperate pieces throughout all three years.
