  1. Love that paint Joe. Looking forward to the final result. Entire build looks super clean. cheers, tim
  2. Well done Tim. The info shared is very insightful too. Thanks for sharing & I look forward to your progress. cheers, tim
  3. Brad, thanks for the note and nice to see you here again. Hope all has been well for you and you'll post some drag car build here soon. cheers Pete J. - "a year ago"..............thanks for reminding me. 🙃 Time IS flying and thank you too for the note. Marcos - Appreciated sir. Daniel - I agree on the blasting a portion of it as I think it would have looked fine either way. But, of course once I blast it, there is/was no turning back so it's now shiny forever. Thank you for the post and checking it out. Ian - Thanks too! Francis - I always liked that saying but I did get a little carried away with the number of pics I took & shared. I don't post as often as I used to so when I do................well, you know. cheers Dave (comp1839) I so miss seeing your builds here at the forum. I know your car is your passion at this time but I can always hope you'll bring a project back or start a new one to share with us all. I DO have some interesting ideas on how I'm approaching the chassis now. Drawing it up now and making a list of 1st and 2nd choices that I'd like to see for the various parts to fab. I have decided to do a Hardy style chassis after doing a ton of research. This week I've got a few "experiments" to try out first to confirm construction techniques. Cheers, Tim Dennis - Appreciate the sentiment and for popping by to check the car out. More good things to come I promise. Cheers Everyone!!!
  4. Dan, nice looking car......I'm a sucker for yellow and I wanted to ask what color yellow you used on your car? cheers,tim
  5. Great car and thread Marco. I particularly appreciate the thorough step by step you've taken on the body prep and paint steps. Great tips you've shared. cheers, tim
  6. THAT is exquisite Alan. Super job. cheers, tim
  7. Finally DONE. Pic heavy. 10 rear cover bolts, 4 carrier bolts and 16 axle flange bolts.....cheers, tim
  8. Thanks Francis & Claude for the input. I'm not going to take a lot of time wrestling with it, just wanted a quick "sanity check" before proceeding. Francis, yeah, I thought about the "messing it up part" plenty. I don't want to do that, and Claude, I appreciate the generous compliments but your observations are spot on too of the "real world" and what people do/don't do. So, I'm going to polish up the back cover to a shiny finish with Mothers Wheel Polish and leave the pumpkin alone. Insert the bolts and put it together and call her done. I'll post some final pics of it very soon. Thanks for posting gentlemen! Tim
  9. THANKS again to each of you for following. I've been going back and forth on certain parts of the build, wheels/tires for one. Getting ready to do the chassis. I've stared at the rear end for almost a week now and I can't decide how I want to finish it. I should media blast it to replicate the original magnesium casting of the unit and paint it a realistic color..........but, from these pics, I like what I see as it is. No one, well, maybe Sox & Martin, would bother to finish off the rear in a polished finish. I'm not going to use Caswell's Blacken-It as it would be the wrong shade I believe. The pics have double sided tape holding the back cover on and the 14 bolts won't be installed until I decide how I want to finish it off. Considered just blasting the pumpkin portion and polishing the rear cover. Opinions are welcome on how you think I should finish it off. cheers, tim
  10. Ah, onto the "fun" stuff. Everything looks super Ian......I've no doubt you're relishing this part! cheers, tim
  11. Nice to see you back again Michael. I learned of your products from Clay and have purchased many in the past, great quality sir. Cheers, Tim
  12. This car does look really nice. Congrats to you sir on a job well done so far. cheers, tim
  13. Just wanted to acknowledge and thank the entire team hosting the DSC contests for doing last years first virtual contest. I got my copy of MCM 208 magazine yesterday and the coverage was fantastic all the way through along with the rest of the magazine. Not sure if I'll entire some past builds this year or not but no matter what I look forward to seeing the entries and results to THIS years show. Thanks again Danno! Cheers, Tim
  14. I'm going to have to give you a call sometime Francis, I have a lot of questions in particular about how you're doing such a sweet job machining in plastic as well. Really opens up possibilities. Nicely done! 😎 Tim
