    "Forced Cold Air Induction" Hoses: AMT `69 Olds 442
    Does anyone have the "Forced Cold Air Induction" hoses for the AMT `69 Olds 442 kit. I you have the air-cleaner as well as the forced cold air hoses even better. But the hoses are my greatest need.

    Art, I think I will try your method of drying body shells. I`m using automotive Acrylic Enamels,as well as  Lacquers paints and clearcoats. I`m also keeping the temp at 105 degrees. How long do you allow the painted body shell to air dry  before placing it in the dehydrator? And, how long do you leave the painted body shell cin the dehydrator.

    Thanks for the reply. Hummm...had not thought of the other possibilities for the Nesco such as drying putty, decals, washed bodies as well as for paint. Thanks for the advise as well as ideas for other uses for the dehydrator.

    Newbie: Food Dehydrators & Paint Dryers Question

    My Nesco food dehydrator yesterday. Since I`m on vacation this morning was spent opening up the trays so for parts can set inside.
    I read the 2003 post of “Food Dehydrators & Paint Dryers” and was able to gleaned a lot of valid info. However, what should I hold the freshly painted body on? In the post there were several comments alluding to tensioned metal stands could cause body warpage. The post never confirmed or denied the statement. So, first off is this true or false? And, if this is true what does one set a freshly paint wet body on?

    Red Inner Fender Well Skirts-Olds
    In the 60ties Olds hi-performance "W" code cars had inner fender well skirts were painted red. Can anyone tell me the name/paint code of this red?

    On one of the 1:1 Olds forums someone mentioned they thought it was called "Flame Red. So far I have not been able to locate this color listed on any of the automotive paint chips references. Also, what years did Olds run the red inner fender well skirts...1966-1970?
    Thanks in advance for the assistance.

    Recently, I stumbled upon PaintRef.com. If you are looking for an "ERA CORRECT" automotive paint  info for your car/truck build this is the go to site. It shows the model, year and paint codes from 1922 to present. The sites database not only shows scanned in paint chip pages from automotive manufacturer brochures(23,225 pages view-able online) it links the paint chip to the automotive paint manufacturer (PPG/ Dupont/ BASF/ Sherwin Williams etc) names and codes they used for the color.

    How Do U Get Tube Type Glue To Release Windshield
    In process of restoring a built Jo-Han kit. My issue is the glue (most likely tube type glue) is tenaciously resisting any attempts to get it to release the windshield from the body. This is the older style of glass that has two clear strips that attach to the roof interior and two locating post on the underside of the truck deck. I do not wish to damage the glass nor damage the body. The bond appears to be incredibly strong after all these years. Any and all suggestions are welcomed. .

    Decal Sheet-Jo-Han Sox & Martin `69 Plymouth Superbird
    Was wondering if anyone may have the decal sheet from the Jo-Han "Sox & Martin" `69 Plymouth Superbird kit that they would be willing to part with. Even the sponsor decals from the sheet would be helpful.
