    Proper color for Pontiac rally IIs?
    Anyone have a source for the proper colors for the Pontiac Rally II wheels? I am aware of the right colors are available for the 1:1 scale, Through Ames Performance and Eastwood. ( maybe the same stuff). I don't really need a 16oz can of it. So any other source Tamaya, testors, Etc for the colors.
    Thanks

    He did this work in the late 90s.

    I was afraid of that, may mean a change to a custom chassis. And go pro-touring with it.

    better chassis for builds?
    I was thinking abut different chassis for models. To make them look better.
    I have used the AMT 69 Cutlass chassis under a few GM A-bodies with good success. From a 68 Chevy 300 up to the Johan 77 Cutlass. Unfortunately none finished.
    For Mopars I have used the AMT 69 Roadrunner, GTX, GTX convertible chassis both the stock and pro-street.under other Mopars also with Success.The Lindburg Color-me-gone car to the MPC 71 Roadrunner.
    Then again I could start with the bare chassis from the Johan Sox and Martian Cuda. Spend 40 hours making it look factory original like my friend Larry Hornsby did. Kudos to Larry for the work, It looks great.
    For Ford I am using the Monogram 70 Torino chassis under a MPC 71 Mercury Cyclone. I may see if this chassis will work under an old AMT? 67 Galaxie Convertible I want to rebuild. Of course the Monogram 93 Mustang chassis under a MPC 79 Mustang Pace car is a given.
    Yet, I have still been unable to find a better chassis to go under the Johan 70 Rebel "The Machine". Any thoughts?
    So these are my findings, Anyone else have other choices they use(d) I would like to here them.
    Thanks
