    MPC ",70 Pontiac Firebird
    Looking at building a '70 Firebird resin . Body and parts are cast off the MPC  firebird. I thought about the AMT '70 Camaro newer issue?

    Can you pull the wires out? If so put a small amount of medium SG on the wire and push it into the hole.
    Another way to tackle this would be to make boots that fit in the hole and are even with the valve cover level and then 
    cement from underneath like Mark mentioned.

    Did you order direct from his website? I ordered that futuristic trailer  from his site and It seems to me it wasn't real long.

    Try soaking it in super clean, or a strong dish soap. Of the hundreds of clear parts I have soaked in super clean it has never harmed the glass. It MIGHT remove the yellow,

    Enamel clear tends to yellow over time. Why not shoot lacquer clear?

    Do you want the ones in the parts pack or just looking for Goodyear Polyglas GT tires. I have a bunch of G70X 15 from older issues of  kits.

    Actually I was half right. That piece and the trim all along the side to the back and half-way in to the door is on the newer tool 55 chevy that Monogram tooled in the '90's? Pink and gray on the box and there was a pace car version.
    HTH

    Nope I was incorrect. I think it was the '56 in that series.

    Thin your lacquer with a slow evap rate thinner. Find this at a regular automotive paint supplier  I use PPG DTL 105 and it works great. I douby ou'll find this at the hardware store.

    Carefully mask off the area and apply a small amount of putty or even some of the  brush-on putties Tamiya makes.
    Build it up and sand carefully. Accidents like this are common when scribeing to deepen or create panel lines.

    The early Revell '55 (with opening doors etc) had that piece along with most of the trim.
