      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

    Thanks Ron and yours look great.  I really like the dark Blue one.  I've got mine stripped already and working on the interior.  The chassis isn't the greatest but it's all I got to work with.  I was hoping that I didn't get burnt on this and I'm glad I didn't.  It is going to take a lot of work to get-er-done, but I do like a challenge.  And this one is a real challenge.  LOL.  Dan

    Thanks a lot guys.  I'm enjoying this rebuild.  Here are a few more pics of what's been done so far today.  I'm using the custom headlights from the AMT 25 T.  I have to make an adjustment for the steering column and also have to spray Alclad on it and a few other parts that should be chrome.  I'm gettin closer to getting 'er done.  Thanks fer lookin.  Dan

    WOW, thanks guys for the kind words.  I'm enjoying redoing this kit.  I had the fenders from some parts that I got at a show and the 26 was a glue bomb that I wanted to rebuild.  Also, a friend of mine needed a set of fenders from this kit and I gave them to him so he could build his.  So far everything is working out just fine.  I had to do a little work on the front fenders to get the suspension to work.  Had to remove part of the inner fenders to free up the A arms.  Thanks fer lookin.  Dan

    26 T 2dr sedan
    I have been working on this 26 T glue bomb for awhile now and there is still a lot work to be done.  Yesterday I assembled the chassis and this morning I sprayed gloss black on it.  Just a few minutes ago I sprayed the Alclad chrome on it.  I'm happy with how it looks.  The body and most of this car is from the Revell 26 T sedan delivery kit.  The fenders are from the AMT Ala Kart kit.  I removed the rear door detail to make this just a 2 dr sedan.  The color is Candy Ruby Red over Silver on the body and Candy Ruby Red over Copper on the fenders.  Also, there is multi color glitter over everything. There still is a lot of work to be done before it's finished.  Thanks fer lookin.  Dan

    Thanks Jesse, I'll check them out.  Dan
    P.S.  I went to the Whoopie Kat site and I was able to order the decals for the 68 GTO that I will build of that car.

    I understand Bill.  I built both of the 66 cars.  The twins.  I remember seeing the champion car (66 GTO) in the showroom at Knafel Pontiac in Akron back in the day.  I used to deliver parts to the store.  I'll never forget that.  Dan

    Thanks guys.  I liked it the first time that I painted it, but I messed it up and I wanted to try and paint it the same way as before.  I'm not going to use the Testors clear on this this time.  If I use anything, it will be Future floor polish and nothing else.  Not sure yet.  I'll wait until it dries before I make any more decisions.  LOL.  Dan

    Ace, you may be right about the decals.  I do know that they are the same for the 68 GTO and I hope that they are the same for the 70.  I'm looking for the 68 GTO by MPC to do that car also.  Bill, I'll let ya know if I can find them.  Dan

    Thanks guys.  These are what I'm looking for.  I don't remember if they are Slixx or Fred Cady though.  I keep looking on e-bay for these.  Dan

    Thanks Tommy.  I hope that I can do this right.  The biggest thing is finding the decals I need for it.
