    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    I think what Rob has in mind. is you can use what ever engine you want but cannot be in a V configuration. 4-6-8-10-12 what ever has to be in line.

    looking for an AMT 96-97 Ford Explorer body.
    Dug into this kit after sitting a while after painting it. The paint toasted the body so I am in search of another one. All I need is the body the rest was OK. Don't know what happened.

    I am building a replica of Year One's BRE Trans Am. some consider it a super car. Pro-Touring at it's best. custom chassis, custom suspension, custom body work the whole nine yards.

    I have used pine sol cleaner to take off most any type of paint. I have a tub I pour the PineSol in. close the lid let it sit at least over night, but usually a couple days. The paint just rinses off.

    I hope to at least get something done next year. Didn't do squat this year. Too many projects got side lined because of missing parts & pieces.
    but a couple ideas are flowing like molasses.

    I am surprised I missed this thread when it came out. I love the colonnade GM A-bodies. Especially the Buick Gran Sport. I had a 75 Century Indy Pace car. Now my youngest is rebuilding a 77 Pontiac Lemans 2dr. Field find.  Larry are you still doing the Pontiacs?
    I think with some tweaking you can use the AMT 69 Olds Cutlass chassis/drive train. For testing purposes I slide one under the Johan 74? Cutlass.

    Dr Larry. I would be interested in a 73/74 Buick Gran Sport and a 75 Century Indy Pace car. I have a great love for the Colinade A bodies. I may even be interested in a 77 Pontiac Can Am ( Lemans) As I would like to build a replica of my son's 1/1 project 77 Lemans.

    Well as the inventor of the sleeperball. I will throw my thoughts out there.
    Some of the themes are great I like the pro-touring, the 6 or less, and the van-ball.
    I like the truck idea, with anything from a Ford Courier to a Kenworth.
    Rob, being it is a cross country race on public roads we need to keep with the street legal rule.

    Ghost flames are nothing but the same color you are painting on just a shade or two either darker or lighter depending on the look you want. If the base color is candy then use a shade lighter or darker of that candy color.

    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
