    Hi GREG,
    Yes this is correct, I checked my '72 Dodge pick up brochure and all beds are painted the same solid body color all the way.

    Glue and Air compressor question ?
    GREETINGS builders,
    GLUE; what product could I use to de-bond old glue ?, just picked up a box of old glue bomb kits that still can be re-built. Something that would not harm the old plastic.
    AIR COMPRESSOR; what one is better ? the small metal one painted blue by paasche #D 500 -or- the mini air one in clear blue plastic by testors ?

    Your comments please, THANKS........ John

    As being a builder of emergency apparatus, I see in my future.....a new squad box ambulance, quick attack mini-pumper, walk around rescue, or how about a brush/grass fire rig.... but let's not stop there... we can also build a wrecker too!!! but wait there's more...take the open road camper, cut the old front / rear clips off, scratchbuild some newer extensions... and presto!!! a brand new class C motorhome.... GOTTA get at least two of these kits.

    Truck and Trailer question ?
    GREETINGS truck builders,

    Also have the ITALERI heavy tanker (BP gas) don't know if we would see that six wheel set up here in america, if I wanted to change that one, what suspension could I replace that one with.

    Hobby Room/Workbench questions
    GREETINGS, fellow builders,

    As I'am revamping my hobbyroom, I've placed WHITE pegboard on some walls and also on the walls around the workbench to reflect lighting better.
    LIGHTING; What do you like?, the hum and buzz of CFL bulbs or the LED ones that cost more, what gives more light.
    WORKBENCH; On the bench top, I placed a sheet of white paper and over layed that with a sheet of plexi-glass. Good choice or bad for the plexi ??. The bench will also have more lighting overhead.
    PEGBOARD; On walls now, so that I can hang parts, tools, clipboards etc, and I can stop digging through endless boxes of stuff to find what I need.

    Did I do good ?, what's your take on this, any comments are always welcomed if there's room for more improvment.

    THANKS!! John

    CHRIS, just to let you know... I`ve tried your links and other hobby sites that have a link to the SFH... still the same `ol thing the 404 error, anti-virus,page not found etc.. `cause I`am fairly new to the internet, don`t know all the short cuts around this yet. So if you or anyone else can help again, please reply to me here. THANKS.... John

    Does anyone know what is up with the site??, my anti-virus kicks up and says there are to many trogans that has infected it. And I can no longer access this what so ever, so I`am missing all the good stuff. Did it go down?, is it being worked on?. I know some of you here on the MCM site are also on the SFH too. Any comments would be great!!. THANKS...... John

    TESTORS paint prices....OUCH.!
    GREETINGS fellow builders, went to the L.H.S. today to pick up some paint, and oh my goodness, can you belive this...TESTORS 3oz. regular and model master spray is $ 6.50 a can, 1/2 oz. model master bottles is $ 4.00 and regular 1/4 oz. bottles is $ 2.00. Not only did testors do this, so did all the rest of the companies who supply us with our products. Just wanted to let all of you know so that there is no suffering of "sticker shock" when you arrive. So does this mean that I`am going to toss out my kits and stop building ??? NO, but it pinches the `ol hobby dollar a lot more.
