    Hey there RT6PK.
    I just so happenn to have the complete set of six tires from the Mickey Thompson AMT '70 Baldwin Motion Camaro kit. The two on the left are the "big" Mickey Thompson rear tires The four on the right are the "stock" Mickey Thompson tires for all four corners. Do you ant all six M/T tires or just the rears only. Just let me know what you decide and they are in the mail.

    Art you so nailed it..you must have been looking over my shoulder last night. Your description is sooooo on the money. At first I had a number of pin holes that I managed to have gotten read of; now I'm felt with this several clusters of 1/25 scale hail damage like dimples. This is so testing my patience.

    Yep, the Cal-Trac traction bar were kitted in the MPC `70 1/2 Camaro (full bumper) kit. I picked up an very old "opened" kit at a local swoop meet. When I got her home and started going through it I discovered there was only one Cal-Trac traction bar in the box; its twin was MIA. Hoping to get a matched pair for a project.

    First many thanks for all the feedback on my pinhole issue. There has been tons of good advise put on the table.
    Here is a statics update:
    The piece I'm wrestling with is a resin cast hood. Presently, it`s in tthree coats grey primer. Two thin dustings of Tamiya and a third coat is a medium pass of grey Krylon sandable spot filler primer.  it looks good at first glance but when you get it under  light and closely eyeball the situation you can see several patches of 1/32 inch dimples here and there. These dimples are air bubbles that are right at the surface but haven't opened up yet.
    In response to Astroracer advise.."I will not recommend spraying these parts with a "hot" paint, such as laquer. It WILL raise the pinholes through the primer."
    My intent was to replicate an era correct  Baldwin Motion car in era correct factory colors so my color coat (which I have already purchased") was  going to be lacquer. 
    I am open to all additional guidance at this point.

    Thank folks for the assistance.
    Then the Lindbergh `64 Dodge 330 Polara, Color Me Gone, Ramcharger or Maverick kits would be a good base to start a build from as well as the Jo-Han `64 Dodge Super Stock kit.

    Hummm...I feel a project in the making.

    Pinholes In My Resin Parts-HELP
    Recently I`ve encountered pin holes in several resin part I acquired. The parts looked absolutely perfect on the surface but, once I began to sand them (with medium grade of wet/dry paper) I began to see tiny pinholes popping up. In fact the more I sanded the more  pinholes popped up. The parts are beginning to look like the pot marked surface of the moon. This is the second time this has happened and the parts are from two different resin casters.
    Hence, two questions: 1) What causes this. 2) And, more importantly  how do I fix this. HELP.

    "The Little Old Lady from Pasadena" sounds like an interesting car song project. My question is the lyrics of Jan & Dean`s song which was released in 1964 (later recorded the Beach Boys 1966) they never truly stated which model Dodge or engine displacement the little old lady was terrorizing Colorado Boulevard in.
    Little Old Lady From Pasadena lyrics

    It's the little old lady from Pasadena...

    The little old lady from Pasadena
    (Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
    Has a pretty little flowerbed of white gardenias
    (Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
    But parked in a rickety old garage
    Is a brand-new, shiny red, super-stock Dodge
    The song doesn't mention the model make or engine, only that it's was a 'Super Stock Dodge". So, in order to match the Jan and Dean song which full size 1964 Dodge are they talking about?  I`m assuming it was either  a 330, 440 or 500 Polara.  And ,I assume the power plant was 426 Stage II/Stage III "Max Wedge". All input, insight, feedback or suggestions are welcomed.
