    What paint did you use on the engine block? It almost looks like it's cast in 18k gold. Steve

    Thanks, Bill, great photos. It must have been so cool to see Juha's work in person! Steve

    Yep, very nice work! Those door panels had me studying them for a while.
  6. I'll be there. Tomorrow, I'm meeting up with a few of my friends in TX , & we are driving up Saturday.
  7. This is what I was thinking, too. But, if you do it at the prep stage, there's no turning back later on. A good way to start the scribe would be to use a set of dividers with one needle extending longer than the other. Let the longer needle follow the inner edge the wheel opening, & the other needle will lightly scribe the body parallel to the opening. Unfortunately, some wheel well trim is not parallel all the way around & gets narrower on the ends. With a little practice you can compensate by tilting the dividers a bit to decrease the distance on each end. Then, deepen the line a bit more by using an X-acto knife. Tape seems like a good idea, too. I use dividers a lot for re-scribing door lines to match the shape of a modified side window.

    Still looks fine on mine, with quite a bit of room to spare horizontally.

    Beautiful work, as usual! The whitewalls & gold side trim inserts are outstanding!

    I'll chime in, too, gorgeous & no photo squishing on my end! I also agree about the the flake in the paint being so perfect for the scale. Very nice!

    Nice work! What is the source of the small screw heads on the engine?
  12. Help with chrome

    I have used Chrome Tech, LMK, & Bob's Paint "Kustom Khrome". I've had beautiful results from LMK, other times, specks under the chrome plating. Same thing with Chrome Tech USA, some parts outstanding, others with runs or specks. Didn't care for Kustom Khrome, all of the hubcaps that I sent had tiny pieces of lint or something under the chrome. Plus, no plating where it was attached to the rack with "special tape" My modified bumper came back cracked where it was pushed down on that "special tape." Never again. Whenever possible, I send multiples of a part placed on different parts of the rack to hopefully insure getting one very nice piece. Bumpers & grille on this one plated by Chrome Tech. The hubcaps were plated by LMK. Chrome Tech again for the bumpers & grille on this one.
  13. Peter, One of my friends that lives in the Netherlands sends his parts to this place. I've seen photos of the parts & they look very nice. VPF FlöhaHeinrich-Heine-Str. 509557 FlöhaDeutschlandemail : info@vpfgbr.de www.vpfgbr.de
  14. Plumbing- Fuel Lines

    26 or 28 ga. bead wire works for me. I bought a spool @ Hobby Lobby many years ago & still have quite a bit. I'm not a fan of diodes or resistors for fuel filters, mainly because they look like diodes & resistors to me.
