Cheers Martin Black of course Nah, the Pegasus DZ wheels probly scale out around 15" and they are not far off being exact same size a Revells single piece wire wheels, although Revell has 2 piece wires that would be closer to 13" but they a bit average looking I think. Jevries also use to make 13's. Personally I much prefer the Pegasus wheels. Not to scale but I reckon they look great on just about any car. Backs arent anything special, most times all that is needed is just drill and cut the stub and possibly sometimes kit parts will need mods to get them fitted.
I will participate for sure. Building season is just about to start here in Australia. And ive been out of the hobby for awhile, so what better way to get back into it with a traditional Lowrider build done in my usual style.
Pretty sure I know what you do, as you like to mention what you have done and do for a living. Hard to judge a person characters online. But I can respect and appreciate the knowledge you have and share to help people out. Ah the ole back pain excuse, amazing how many people complain of that. So I guess thats why you can come across as a grump sometimes. Nah, im sure anymore I say would be of no use, as you have a vast knowledge of everything and Im sure you will sort yourself out.
Wankers who have nothing better to do than jibber jabber wasting countless hours on this forum instead of being at their workbench doing something productive with their time. But I guess its easier to talk about building model cars than actually building one. Each to their own I guess.
Rough surface is pebbling, most times it is caused by the paint drying before it lands on the surface. Factors that can cause it are: Air temperature. Shooting to far away from the surface. Incorrect ratio of paint to thinner. Other possible causes With dual actions, too much air not enough paint. And too much paint which causes over spray that gets drawn into the airflow then onto the surface of wet paint.
Not really, but it did take a little bit of work though, I removed front inner guards from the body and rear wheel tubs from the chassis and then modified stock suspension to get it lowered. And being that it was built curbside I didnt have to re-build/re-work what was removed. Yes, but I donated the engine else where.
