      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

    1978 Z/28
    I bought the twin to this car new in 1978, and am looking for a model of it to build. It is a 1978 Z/28, no T-Roof.
    The 1977 and earlier, and 1979 up, are both different cars from the 1978, it had many body features unique to that year.
    If anyone knows where I could trade for one or buy one, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Would love to have a kit of this, any idea where to find one. I had a 1:1 of this, bought new in 1978, chocolate brown, and would like to do a model of it.

    Painting small parts, brush or spray?
    1) Do most paint small parts on the tree, then assemble, or assemble & then paint.
    2) Do most spray paint  motors and parts, as well as interiors and seats, or do you use brushes.
    Looking at some finished jobs on here (WOW), wondering how the painting gets done so well.

    I have a couple of nail brush colors I've been waiting to try. One is a deep red & the other a bright yellow. Either will have a tan leather interior.

    Purple Power
    I have a 56 ford pick up soaking in the pond due to silver paint puddling along the bottom of the truck.
    Question: After taking the model out of the Purple Power, do you strain it to remove the old paint, or leave it in the container, as is, for the next time?

    Home made distributors
    I see a lot of home made distributors on the cars here. They look like they are made from Aluminum tubing. If so, I am wondering on the diameters of the 2 sizes of tubing used, and if not, what material is being used.
    Thanks for the info!

    The 'Cuda has silver fine tip marker for the door handles, hood pins, etc. on the car, and the blue Dodge (Color Me Gone) is a weekend warrior drag car, didn't figure it would have chrome trim anyway.

    True, I have a package of Bare Metal, problem it is 10 years old and I don't think it would work. May have to invest in some new stuff.
    Also, these 64 year old sausage fingers don't work the best anymore.

    These are the only 2 complete builds of 2016. The Jeep is an older SnapTite model. Hopefully 2017 is more productive.

    I found that Windex does a great job at removing chrome from parts.

    TaDa! I found the floor pan. I was looking in one of my desk drawers for paint brushes and there it was. It was under some misc. stuff. Don't know if it fell in while I was working on the model, or whether gremlins in the basement hid it on me. I am in the middle of the 32 5 window now, but this will be back on the workbench soon.
    Thanks for all the suggestions and help.

    32 Ford 5 window
    Did up a couple of paint samples for the car. I showed them to the missus, she picked the green. I was leaning toward the copper, but we all know who won. Next build, I'll pick the color.

    Sounds like it may work. If not, just another repaint.
