  1. I wish I had your luck. First coat of paint wrinkled which may keep me from finishing.
  2. Thanks guys! Well that's true but no luck yet Haven't done a ton to the truck, I think it's got a few bad lifters and I decided I'm going to swap in a 6.0 LS from a new Silverado. With the mods I want to do to this motor, it should put me up in the 450 hp range (Great, all that means is speeding tickets when I get my license...)
  3. Thanks guys! Main reason I quit was because I just had no time. Luckily though it all worked out.
  4. After about a 7 month break from the hobby, it has struck me again. Doing a 69 Camaro LS3 swap for the Cannonball Run CBP. So glad to be back into it!
  5. Progress... For some reason I thought the LS3 sat in there almost perfectly, and testing ti again today, it's not even close. So I'll make a new crossmember and call it good.
  6. I know, that will be the hard part is getting ti done.
  7. Can I rejoin...again? lol Hopefully this isn't too far along? Big block will be ditched in favor of LSX, and I'm not so sure if I'm keeping the color yet. Thinking maybe silver. Beside that, the chassis is painted with very little suspension work done..but some of the rear will have to be redone to fit some fatter tires in if I go that route.
  8. In my experience the ultra bright is terrible compared to the normal stuff.
  9. Thanks for the words everyone I'm pretty sure I'll come back, I've always read here on the forum that most people do return after a break! Recently I had an almost finished 70 Camaro model, nothing was going right in the final assembly. So I lost it and I threw it across the room Mike, I was going to enter the Gearz contest but I couldn't make up my mind and I didn't have the time Bradley, I tried to send you a PM some time back but it wouldn't let me. So I'll just say it here. I'd like to apologize for being an a-hole in the past, I don't know why I was really stupid enough to argue with somebody who knows more about that kind of stuff than I do. So I sincerely apologize for that.
  10. Need to take a break. Don't know when I'll come back to building, but I will at some point. It's far too stressful for someone like me who has a temper. Between working on my 1:1, school, and job, I just simply don't have a lot of time right now. I'll still check back on the forum once in a while, but for now I'm boxing all my models till I get the "bug" again. Thanks Andy
  11. Here's mine, it's Rush at the Pinkpop Music Festival on June 4, 1979.
  12. I got an old beat up pickup truck that I use cheap Mothers wax on! Sometimes, you DON'T get what you pay for...
  13. Ditto... In my honest opinion, I haven't seen a good design from Chevy since the 2006 Silverado. Not to mention that "ugly" phase they went through from '73-mid 80's.
  14. Thanks to Gregg and all the mods keeping the forum going. I know it's gotta be tough managing a magazine AND a forum. While I don't know exactly what went down a couple days ago, I will say that back some time ago I caused a lot of drama, and if you guys didn't see my post I made about it, I sincerely apologize for being a know it all jerk. I am glad the forum came back! It would have been terrible to lose a such a great resource.
  15. Welp, I think I'm gonna withdraw from this before I've even started I just simply don't have the time to build anymore
  16. I actually prefer the floor-dimming switch! I'm glad production is coming back to the US...I hope EVERY company does this gradually...
  17. You'd be surprised. Sorry to hear about this, I too hope they get punished to get more thugs off the street.
  18. That's why my models don't leave the bench until they're finished. That's also why my bench is a disaster
  19. Heck I don't care, it just basically FORCES me to actually get a build done! I think I'm going in with a 2010 Camaro since I've got one in the stash. Was gonna do the Ed Roth F100...but I decided I have different plans for that one
  20. I'm in. Representing Chevy again this year, 2010 Camaro SS
  21. So now I know where Niko gets his talent from. Awesome build, and welcome to the forum!
  22. Thanks Mark and Dlihcsnebuah Yeah, I'll paint the wheels gray but I was too anxious to get a rolling chassis going so I put it off
