    I get my Japanese orders just as quickly (or quicker) than those from the mid-west or east coast.   Usually for about the same price.  
    Sometimes be too "frugal" is kind of expensive... "emotionally"

      it will only be as smooth (or as rough) as the surface it's being applied to.

    Wide whites in 66?     Not that I can remember.  
    I wish they'd done some corrective work on the grille.
    But I am very glad to have a Suburban finally.

    I saw one of those bodies this weekend....the conversion is well done for the most part.. but it is a very thick casting and wil require quite a bit of work to look as nice as the one pictured.
    A friend of mine is "fixing" it thinning the inside of the roof, filling sinks in the body sides and redoing the window openings/frames.  Perhaps a new casting could be made to save others all that work.
    The proportions are nearly perfect so it's well worth fixing the few short comings...

    I agree, I just saw some bodies he did for a friend of mine...coudn't be nicer.  
    I've seen other products of his that ...well, free would be too high a price.

    The "refills" cost 3x what the original pen cost?

    very nice!
  11. mike 51 added a post in a topic PE headlight grills for '53 Corvette   

    I thought one of the AMT 53-55 Corvettes had solid headlight covers for a race version...if you could find those, they might provide a form for the PE pieces?
    Good luck...it's an important detail usually missing.
