Thanks guys. Picked up the custom kit recently with a HL coupon for the tires and engine. I have a stock version but want it lowered so will use the parts from custom kit. I'm going to use the custom engine in a hydro boat that will go behind the Olds. That engine should look great in that boat. Olds engines were real popular in boats where I grew up in 50's and 60's
Another clear that I have not seen mentioned on this board is the water based polyurethanes. I used it a lot and always had good results. Dries hard and fast and can be sanded and polished if needed. Carver Tripp is what I used Thinned with windshield washer fluid.
