    Lakewood Traction Bars
    Hey guys, looking for some dimensions of the Lakewood Competition "slapper" Traction bars that were popular in the 60's & 70's on street/strip cars. I can find a ton of pictures but no spec's (length, width, height, etc.). Looking  to build a set for my 1/12 scale 69 Camaro project. Any help will be much appreciated.

    I've watching this one. Glidden's 78 Fairmont never lost a round of racing, national, regional or match raced. Unbelievable car! Saw it a U.S. 30 back in the day. If your interested, there's a great article at competitionplus.com with the man himself.

    Need to find that post you're talking about Ray, I just covered some masking tape with some semi-gloss spray paint and it's not quite what I'm after, looks good but just not "THERE". Notice how the word "witch" was substituted for the word "which"? Happy halloween everyone, thanks guy's!

    Vinyl Roof Duplication
    What's a good paint that will resemble a vinyl roof from a late 60's GM product? Need to do a roof on a 69 Camaro. I am assuming it's some kind of "wrinkle" paint, but witch brand are you guys using?

    Seen him many times match race at Ron Leek's track in Byron, IL. back in the 70's. A TRUE icon in our sport, he will be missed, R.I.P. Bill.

    I'll be watching this post closely and I don't mean to steal it from you but I also am in need of some custom decals for this W.J. Pro-stock build. Maybe someone will be more inticed by two decal jobs as apposed to one.

    Anytime I'm on this site and I see 69 Camaro and / or comp 1839 I'm ALL eyes "QQ". I'll be watching in great awe as the Master builds another replica of a beautiful car.
