    I thought you could get Spaz in an aerosol can? I could be wrong. Alclad is great stuff. I got an airbrush from Harbor Freight for like 15 bucks on sale just so I could spray Alclad. I added an adjustable regulator and its served me well.

    I have a brand new unused 352 cab from the newest release kit. PM me if you're interested

    I got it at a show a couple weeks back. Motor City Resin produced it, although it's not on their site.

    Finally got some bench time in this morning. I worked on the interior a bit. I didn't like the bucket/jump seat combo molded in so I chopped it out. Used some sheet styrene to rebuild the back of the interior and cut up 2 rear seats from old monogram Blazers to make a nice looking bench. Added some brake and clutch pedals from a blazer kit too. It's roughed in at this point. Plenty of sanding to do. Now on to the bed....

    I just picked the body up a few weeks back. It may be a new offering not yet on the site. 
     
    Progress has been slow. It's been busy at work and I've been fighting issues with my daily driver. Will post up some pics tonight.

    So I put this together. It's a 69 GTX 440 and the Trans from the kit. I think it'll do just fine. Not terribly accurate, but it certainly looks better than the blob that comes in the LRE kit. It'll spruce up with a MAD distributor and a nice coat of Chrysler blue

    Just a quick mockup. Still hunting for my spare 440 engine. I haven't quite decided on a color scheme yet. Hate to be so boring and go with just white.

    62 Corvette Dog Dish Caps
    Is anyone casting these caps or are they part of any kits? They look kind of like the ones in the 59 el Camino kit, but I'm not sure.

    Dodge Holmes 440 Wrecker
    Hi all. This will mark my first documented build ever on this site. Been a member for years and I've received a ton of inspiration. I picked up this MCRC wrecker body a couple weeks back at a show and had a crazy idea to build a dodge wrecker. I've had this LRE for a few years and had no inspiration to build it until now. A great member on this site helped me out with a chassis, huge thanks to Dan (59 Impala). Picked up a set of wheels and tires from scenes unlimited. If you haven't yet, order some. Nicest dually set I've ever seen. I figured this is the perfect build to use my Gofer Racing decals on. Stay tuned...

    I think they had a hit, especially with the 69. Im kicking myself for not grabbing one in the first few weeks. I cant find one anywhere.

    Dodge Pickup parts Needed
    Hi all,
    I am in need of an MPC/AMT 72-80 long bed pickup chassis for a project. I really only need the chassis itself. I have a short bed chassis from the Little Red Express kit and all the shortbed and LRE parts to go with it to trade. I also have lots of other kits and parts that I can trade as well. Let me know
    Thanks!
