      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    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.

    1/12 Scale S.B.C. Carb & Intake
    Looking for a single 4 barrel Holley carb and a Dual Plane Intake Manifold in 1/12 Scale for my Z/28 Camaro project car. I'm trying to duplicate my ride from back in the early 70's.
    TDR lists one but not for sale yet. Any suggestions or offers are welcome.

    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.
