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
I like this one.......a lot! Good work on the paint job. Shirley was a great asset for Chrysler as the first woman to win an NHRA national event eliminator title (1966 Winternationals Super Stock). She was frustrated with Chrysler's demands that she run an automatic transmission. When she switched to AMC in '69 she got to shift with a clutch once again!
Really looks like a fun project! Love the use of color, strange color combos but it somehow works on this car. P.S. Regarding the shoulder belts. Think of what would happen if the car flipped on to it's cage!
I think that he meant the color being "different" as most builders tend to leave them chromed. You have the correct valve covers for the early Hemi that you are building. I have seen these valve covers painted every color of the rainbow. Yours look real good. One tip. If you look at photos of hemi engines, you will notice that the spark plug boots almost never extend very much above the top of the spark plug tube. If you trim your boots even with the top of the cover, they would look more realistic, although with the black covers they might not be noticed.
Good job on the foil. I've found it near impossible to do large surfaces in foil without getting wrinkles. Even after you think you have them all out they somehow resurface. I gave up on the foil once I discovered Testors metallizer buffing aluminum.
I too like the '64. Reminds me of the first real race car that I drove. It was a '63 Max wedge car, push button torqueflite with a reverse pattern valve body. The owner forgot to tell me about the reverse pattern! Almost scattered that thing when I hit "third"!! I have a Johan '63 kit to build that car someday! It's been at least 20 years since I got that kit!
