    2009 Cuda (challenger conversion)
    This build was inspired by the car in the link. Mr. Norm's has a package that add's unique accessories to factory Dodge Challenger's to made a Cuda including Supercharging the motor. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month I decided to paint her in Testor's Electric Pink (And add the breast cancer tag). Masked off the billboard pattern and painted it gunmetal. I Grafted the front grill of a Revell 71 Cuda to the  challenger front fascia & also used its window louvers and spoiler. The supercharger is scratch built including the air intake & throttle body based off reference pictures of the 1:1. The hood and rear fascia top off the body mod's . Interior features some carbon fiber on the dash & console & pistol grip shifter.

    Testors Airbrush/ Compressor for trade
    Throwing this out there to check for any interest. Ive had this for a while but only used it once, purchased brand new. Since then its been just taking up space on the bench since I don't airbrush anything and only use rattle cans. It works flawlessly I just have no use for it. I would trade for a couple complete, unbuilt kits. I build muscle cars, pick-ups, emergency vehicles (would like a firetruck kit), American cars not big on imports. would also be interested in a 1:18 diecast newer model Mustang.

    So "ghosting" is my problem. I will try to fill with superglue then sand and see what happens. Bill, The bondo putty you pictured is the same that I used on this hood. Normally I use Dupli-color high build gray primer following body mods like this and its usually successful. This time I used a normal duplicolor gray which the results you see....  For future reference If I use a "primer sealer" would it prevent ghosting?

    Problems w/ body filler
    Need some advice on how to over come this snag. Essentailly I grafted one hood onto another and used filler strips of plastic to fill the gaps. Sanded it smooth then covered it in automotive polyester finishing putty. Sanded that down then added two coats of bondo glazing & spot putty. After sanding the bondo, I sprayed a few coats of primer hoping that i would have a smooth finish and no problems. As you can see, even after a couple coats of primer, you can see the lines through it. What do I need to do?

    Dodge Monaco Police: replica build
    I remember the 1:1 of this car from the early 90's when the police department would use it as a display car at parades and various events around town. The technology at the time was advanced and I remember the doors would open automatically to full extention as well as the hood. The car also "talked" and would say phrases like "say no to drugs" stuff like that.  Currently the car is in a museum, found it recently and decided to make a replica. I built it as curbside, shaved the door handles and made the decals myself. Thanks to jtalmadge for the wheels that I think match the 1:1 perfectly.
