  1. I know that there was just an article in a Scale Auto on airbrushing Motolow chrome. But I'm looking for anyone with real world experience and tips they can pass along.
  2. Spark Plug wire

    Is the black flat or satin in color?
  3. Spark Plug wire

    Almost all of the beading wire that I have found has had a gloss finish. The search continues.
  4. Hi Tom, Generally a good idea but with the custom engine mounts, and the slightly adjusted body to frame position that won't work. On a different note how about, I come by after the Goodguys show so you can see the roadster?
  5. Spark Plug wire

    I'm looking for a roll of black wire that can be used for spark plugs. Yes, I know that I can get a small roll from various vendors. But specifically what I 'm looking for is wire that is flat black or a most a dull satin. It has to be able to hold a shape so it can be made to droop. Most importantly the OD needs to be less than 0.40 mm. Almost everything that I have found is super shiny black and that looks so wrong.
  6. I'm still struggling with the exhaust. Almost all model A's have the over the frame headers. So to be different I'm making my own headers that will then dump down inside the frame rail and exit ahead of the rear wheels. Problem is that the motor needs to be installed to make sure everything lines up correctly. The chance of a screwup is high.
  7. Yep 1/25. I leave the big scale stuff to Jim Drew and Randy Derr.
  8. I have a set of Modelhaus Divco wheels and tires that are perfect. Any build is always started with wheels and tires. Many ideas have died on the vine for lack of the perfect combination.
  9. What Did You Have for Dinner?

    I have 3 of the Ssantuko knives and they are my favorites. They take such a nice edge that it makes using them a true joy. Also, you don't notice when you nick yourself at first.
  10. What Did You Have for Dinner?

    Tonight I made a fired roasted corn salad with pickled red onions, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and avocado. Topped it with a simple vinaigrette. Needed a protein so tossed in some cubed leftover ribeye and a glass of red wine. It was perfect after 2 hours of brutal cycling.

    Steve, you have some serious skills. Do you use a #11 blade to prep your food? Fred
  12. What Did You Have for Dinner?

    Made a simple orzo salad with shrimp and calamari, olives, capers, sweet peppers, cherry tomatoes and roasted garlic. Topped with homemade greek dressing. Served it with pita beard. So good.
  13. What kind of other nerd are you?

    I'm a huge Red Winds fan going all the way back to the dark ages of the early 80's. The Darkness of Harkness.
  14. What kind of other nerd are you?

    Hi Jeff, I ride a Colnago M10. Best bike I have ever had. Super responsive and just soaks up the miles. My old bike was Cannondale. I've heard good thing about the Synapse.
  15. What kind of other nerd are you?

    All sorts of collections are cool. I know a guy that has a collection of flashlights that is incredible and far-ranging.
