    Kool!
    It's refreshing to see such a nice Moper build...with a Wedge and not a Hemi.

    The BMF alone would have cost me about 3 bottle of Jim Beam...

    Awesome build.
    I've probably done 7 or 8 of these over the years. NEVER used the stock parts on the engine.
    You got it right.

  10. Southern Fried added a post in a topic what glue do you use   

    Depends on what i'm gluing...
    Most areas of unpainted styrene. plastic...engine, heads, trans, or anything that will be painted later, straight up Testors Liquid. Works just fine.PLUS you have a short time frame to position it right.
    If it's an area that needs a little more time to set in the position I need...Testors Liquid, 50%, with a mix of 50% Testors Tube stirred  in, OR Super Glue/Krazy Glue Gel.
    Metal to styrene  or metal to metal? SG or KG Gel.
    Painted parts, that need to be "scraped" at the attached point? Same Testors Liquid.
    If I want parts to be literally "welded" together...Tenax Z7.  Mostly used on aircraft seams. Bad stuff.
    Lastly, clear parts? Aleenes "Tacky Glue". Holds the part . Dries clear.
    I can buy a years worth of all, for what some of the exotic glues cost in a month.

    Any trouble with the AMT '66 Nova??
    I'm well into a build ( 3rd one attempted...none finished) and have ran into a small problem.
    The chassis/engine/interior are almost finished. However, when I do a mock up, everything lines up. The axle/spindles are centered in the wells, and the radiator support is in the correct place, however, the grill seems it will be a non-fit, as if the support is too far forward???
