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
Experimented with rivets. Drilled out all the rivet marks on the engine cover and pushed .035 rod through, sanded them down, and painted the engine cover gloss aluminum. Next, I painted the cover with clear red to simulated anodizing. Finally, I carefully removed the paint above the rivet heads. A lot of work! Fuel injection system was plumbed and ignition wires and boots installed.
Great car! Great story! Isn't it cool that we can now build replicas of the cars that made such an impression on us? I too was 13 when I made my first trip to the drags. I don't remember much about that summer of '69 but that day at National Speedway is etched in my mind! WF
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!
