  1. Hi guys, thought I'd chime in. I was in a car accident a few years ago. I had a fusion done on my lower back. With that said try to sit straight not slumped over, agree with the wallet placement or don't wear it at all when your not going out. I was told to let pain be your guide as to how much you could do. In the garage I raised my workbench to approximately4" from the floor. The bench is 4 1/2' tall. I did this to keep the work in front of me so I would not be stooping over when I am working on something on the bench.
  2. Are you building your car to be a W30 car or a "base" 442. I asked because the W30 cars had red inner fender liners and can be seen in the engine compartment
  3. Don't forget the Buick Rivera was produced as a model too
  4. Thank you for the information. I do not have a printer or know how to resize the saved picture. Any other way?
  5. Not trying to take over your thread, but I like the oil filter decal. How can I get one?
  6. Pat I remembered this kit you started. I'm glad you are going to finish it. You did such good work on it already.
  7. Not sure if you have the kit, but would any parts from the 69 GTX convertible be useful for your conversion?
  8. I really like the Motion Vega you built. What did you use for the hood scoop? Do you have the decals for this car?
  9. Didn't the movie car when finished have a clear hood?
  10. Glad I could help. Other interior colors are available as well. All colors have the correct sheen as well.
  11. I know you painted your interior, but FYI and to anybody else building this kit the correct interior color can be found in a spray can. It can be bought at G body parts.com It is a company that stocks a lot of G body parts. The paint is for redying the interior plastic panels. It is the correct shade of Maple for the interior
  12. What about a wedge cut top? low in the front stock in the back. Those motors are HUGE
  13. Thank you very much for your replies. I am currently trying a different approach tell me what you think. My wife uses hair spray in the bathroom, it leaves a residue on the counter. It has a little texture. Nothing huge but you can feel it. We tried it on a painted surface and painted over it too. You can feel it but it's not really visible like a rough orange peel texture. What do you guys think? I'll try this and your suggestions and compare them. Results to follow. Thanks, John
  14. Just looked at my 60 impala pe set from Model house it has El Camino scripts
