  1. Super! Looking forward to seeing you Nick...
  2. Hi Nick - Futurattraction Scale Products will also be there Saturday. Looking forward to it!
  3. Modifying a body to fit the Pro Mod category, if you're really trying to "do it right" is going to involve modifying pretty much every panel on the car. Wheelbase typically is set at 115" and it is fairly customary to have a 45" overhang, measured from the center of the front wheels, forward. This may be in the shape of the actual body, or can be accomplished, to some degree, with a splitter. I don't know if there are published dimensions per given body style or not. I haven't seen them, but that doesn't mean they aren't out there. For more regulated classes, such as Pro Stock, there are templates with published dimensions for various points on the car. I will post some pics of a pro mod body I've been working on, just to give you an idea of what I've done. With it, the roof has been chopped a scale 2-1/2"; narrowed and tapered front to rear; wedged front to rear; body sides were flattened from the belt line down, between the wheel well openings; front fender opening has been drastically reduced in size; hood will be molded into the front fenders and vents in front of the windshield will be filled; drip rail and all trim has been removed; bumpers will be narrowed and blended into the body. I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with the nose/grille at this point. I'm not a big fan of the long, sloping noses because they change the appearance so drastically. To some degree, at least with our modeling subject matter, it is, to some degree, a matter of what looks right, which is more the direction I'm leaning with the nose.
  4. Cool trick, Rickard, as far as the acorn nut is concerned. I love seeing your work...
  5. Hey Scott tried sending you a message through MCM and also on your web site but nothing is getting sent. I had purchased your S-4LF9-1 4 LINK KIT either from you or a online vendor and the kit came with no instructions on how to assemble the 4 link kit. So is it possible to send me the instructions via email ?

  6. Sorry to hear about your primer setback. It looks like everything is well-recovered. Your hinge work looks phenomenal and the lid, itself, fits perfectly. Can't wait to see your next update, especially the interior panel for the lid!
  7. Your graphics are really cool, Wayne. Great progress so far!
  8. To confirm what was said above, my stock body Fairmont is on hold for the time being.
  9. Fantastic start, Clay. I'm looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us...
  10. I love the stance from your 8/29/14 entry. The lower the better!
  11. Great to see you back Rickard. Hope things are going well with you!
