    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    A bubble top and fins? Whatever you build from them sounds like it should be cool!
    I've been thinking how the little light pods on the "roof" of the Batmobile might look as tail lights on a '37 Ford........
  2. JollySipper added a post in a topic A custom from the Batmobile?   

    Something along these lines is what I'm interested in, tho this was built from a Futura......

    Also, if anyone has used just parts of the Batmobile in a build, I would love to see it......

    Yep, sure did...... thanks, tho.......
    Barris got a hold of it and rui......... er, um, ..... changed it to the Batmobile. Just brainstorming and looking for inspiration.....

    A custom from the Batmobile?
    Hey, Guys...... Have any of you taken a '66 Batmobile and made some sort of custom from it? I have this idea that the front end would make for a cool rear end treatment on something like the '62 Buick, or along those lines.......
    Just wondering if any of you guys have had a similar idea, and how it might look..........
    Thanks!

    I think it's called "Entropy".... and it's only going to get worse...
    (Sorry for the bold type, not sure why it happened)

    I'm enjoying hearing and seeing the Osprey air craft flying over this evening.... I believe they do touch-and-gos at the local airport, which is about a mile from here.......

    I once had an early '80s S-10 with a 305..... it couldn't get out of it's own way. Whoever did the engine swap left the single muffler exhaust, and put on something like a 750 cfm Holley carb! It sounded good at idle, tho, with it's big, lopey cam...........

    All the custom parts from the chopped coupe fit into the stock coupe body just fine..........

    Or maybe one of these!

    It's still up, as I haven't claimed anything from Kerry's offerings..............
  11. JollySipper added a post in a topic Pay It Forward-Round 2-Let's have FUN!   

    It doesn't have saw blades, Sorry.........
  12. JollySipper added a post in a topic Pay It Forward-Round 2-Let's have FUN!   

    I would like to claim one of Kerry's kits, ONLY IF this is okay to offer, and if someone claims my offering first.......... It's not a model kit, but it could be useful to someone..... Hope this is okay! 

    It's practically unused, the blades still have oil on them....... Like I said, I'll only claim one of the currently offered kits if this is claimed first...........

    Easy Foiling Tip!
    I've found a way to get perfectly straight trim on bodies foiled. I simply eye-ball how wide a piece of foil I need, use a metal straight edge to cut the foil while it's still on the sheet, being sure to make the piece long enough to handle, then just place on the body and burnish down....... That's how I did most of the trim on this car........

    You still have to cut to length, but that's easy enough...... Anyways, hope someone finds this helpful!

    You say he's learning IT? How about if Mr. Ambrose could take him under his wing, let him learn the forum software.......... That would be completely up to Dave, of course......
  15. JollySipper added a post in a topic Explain camshaft specs to me........   

    Thanks, Bill! There is some very good info in those links, written where the average person can understand it........
    I'm wondering..... you said a higher lift camshaft doesn't operate well at lower RPMs. Could you maybe "cheat" by using a milder cam, but with solid lifters that you could push to higher revs to get more out of it?
