  1. I picked a 69 Barracuda S in this color for my first car. Dad popped the hood, closed it up and said, "Motors too big(it was a 383)" so I got a 68 Nova 350 SS . He never checked the cid thought it was a 307. BEAUTIFUL build.
  2. Thanks Chris. I'll let you know on jere when I get them. Thanks again.
  3. Ok, I've been gone for a while now, and when I got back, I notice all these adds for dateing Asian women, or some kinda pest control adds. What this all about? I honestly think this is rather out of place on a model car forum. When did this start and why?
  4. Wow just noticed this! Seein the dates this rascal HAS been gestatin a while now, but it is lookin good! Gonna stay with it to see how it comes out, as I have a mint unbuilt kit an I'd like to use your tips to bjild it! Thanks!
  5. My first car was a 68 Nova SS in Grecian Green Closely resembeling that same shade of green. My first car when I was 17 in 1970. Your lil Chevelle looks GREAT!
  6. Thanks guys for the votes of confidence! Yes, I DO rack them myself as my racks are already sizes to the vacim tanks my plater uses. IF your racks are 9 x 16 they WILL fit onto my racks in which case you can send them in and I will take care of the rest. If you want, you can just leave them loose and I will mount them. Just send a note with EXACTLY what you've sent me so I can be sure you get ALL your parts back. Unfortunately, I can't do GOLD plated parts as my chrome says it's NOT cost effective for him(as he uses REAL gold), But I've been told if you overspray the chrome with Tamiya ANBER spray, you can achieve a similar effect. I PERSONALLY can't vouch for this technic, as I've never tried it, but I was told it looks pretty good. My prices are as reasonable as I can make them, I don't know what LMC charges as I've never asked him. I charge 5 bucks per bumper/grille, 5 for 4 wheels/rims and less for smaller parts as mirrors, antennas, and such. Contact me at tihggh01@hotmail.com at my E-Mail addy for more exact prices, or on FB at GT KustomKrome. I check my mail at both places daily, so if ya need more info, just hit me up HERE, or either of the other addy's. If ya need anything more, I'm always willing to work with you, THANKS for your interest. I'll do my best for you's, George53(George Hernandez DBA GT KustomKrome)
  7. Then I guess you could always hit me uphere, IF that's allowed. OR just go to my E-Mail addy. tihggh01@hotmail.com.
  8. Hi guys. After a LOOONG hiatus, we're back up and running. My surgery went well and I'm still going to rehab for my shoulder surgery, but I've started takeing orders again as of the 1st of August. So far I've been able to fill orders and ready to take more. As before, bumpers and grilles are 5 bucks each, 4 wheels/rims are 5 bucks also. These prices are for 24th/25th scale parts. Larger pieces will be more depending on what it is. I can plate 12th, 16th and 1/8th parts. 24th/25th truck parts vary in prices depending on what they are, get with me for exact priceing. Contact me on my Facebook page at GT KustomKrome, I visit it EVERYDAY so if you need something chromed hit me up there. My chromeing is done by an INDUSTRIAL chromeing facilitiy, and they do ALL kinds of items, Shopping carts, clothes racks, 1-1 vehicle bumpers and the like. As such, I CANNOT be responsible for lost/broken parts as I have NO power over their Quality Control. The men who work there try their best to be careful, but seeing as they ARE model car parts, they can't be expected to watch out for EVERY piece they plate. So far I have done a very good job at providing the best parts I can, and hope you will be happy with my service. While I was ill, I did take longer than expected to return parts to customers but as we all know, life happens. So now I'll try harder to please everyone who trusts in me for quality chromeing service. I'll do my best not to let you down. Again, THANK YOU for your loyalty and trust, George.
  9. Tommy, check with Ron Andrews of RNR resins. I got one off him recently.
  10. THAT is EXACTLY what they're doing.
  11. Colby, I used the bucket seat out of a Revell 32nd scale Ferrari, I think it was a snap tite kit molded in red. It looked pretty good in the back seat of my 67 Impala SS.
  12. Rico, I have ordered your GTX grille already, and was VERY pleased with it. Is the rear grille ready yet? if so, then can I order it from you at the same place I got the grille from? Your detail work is amazing! Thanks!!!!
  13. Check out Missing Link. They have one. I know, caz I cast 'em for him!
  14. Check out Bandit Resins. They have a 70 GTX that'll fit your needs. Just sand off the GTX from it's flanks am there ya go, a RoadRunner! I got one and it's BEAUTIFULLY done!
  15. Thank you all for the kind words about GT KustomKrome. Yes I was given the business by Bob Dahl. I changed the name to GT KustomKrome so Bob wouldn't be bothered about it. The prices Bob had are still in effect, so nothing has really changed from when he owned it, other than the address. I can plate resin, styrene plastic and so far they've all come out great. I've only had trouble with the weird plastic string used in 3D printing. But, I'm working on that now too. So far I've been able to have GREAT results and a great relationship with my customers. I hope, if you decide to try my services, you'll be happy too. Contact me at tihggh01@hotmail.com if your interested. Much thanks in advance, George 53.
  16. Larry, how would I go about getting one of the Grand Ams? How much are they, and where do I get one?
  17. So What's the question? Almost ALL of todays resin casters use pressure pots for casting. It insures that no bubbles are left in the finished product. It's a sign of a professional caster. Do you buy resin products very often? Missing Link, Motor City Resin Casters, M.A.D products all use pressure pots when casting, as do MOST of the other major casters do. The days of slush casting are WAY over!!!!
  18. Custom made Photo etch stuff can be very expensive . You'd need to have a BUNCH of stuff made to make it worth the cost. A lot of PE designers won't make a design unless you order a couple dozen pieces. I hope you can find one who'll do it for a reasonable price.
  19. Check with Ron Andrews of RMR resin. He has the Can-Am.
  20. How does one go about getting one? Any info would be very appericiated. Thanks.
  21. Scale Models by Chris(Paul Plum) USED to make them. I used to cast them for him. You MIGHT try asking Jeff Ballard of Motor City Resin casters, as he acquired most of Paul Plum's AWB molds after Paul passed away. He still has them.
  22. I did the casting on the last Cords that Missing Link produced. The molds belonged to a friend of Kevin's and returned back to him at the end of the run. I did cast a sedan, and convertable for myself before we gave them back. Kevin would remember the gentlemans name I believe, BUT since these were a private run for him personally, I highly doubt that there would be any for sale. They came out very nice, if I say so myself.
  23. Check with Kris Morgan at M>A>D> He has quite an assortment of Automatic an manual Transmissions. REAL nice stuff too.
  24. I bought his a couple of sets of his Mopar 6 pak set ups, an a few of his GM 4bbl carbs and let me tell ya, they are THE MOOK! I will buy HIS carbs EXCLUSIVELY from here on in! Theres no comparison to his quality!
  25. Can't say enough good stuff about Danny! He is a GREAT guy and outstanding businessman. Danny got me casting resin for him(He BOUGHT me my FIRST pot) and I haven't looked back. The guy is a regular hero in MY book.
