  1. A really nice looking Ford. Surprisingly, many folks don't know that Ford outsold Chevy in 1957. Wouldn't know it if you attended a car show nowadays. http://wheels.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/06/03/revisiting-the-1957-sales-numbers/
  2. Beautiful! What finish did you use on the chassis?
  3. I've got to remember this tip. Looks very real.
  4. I totally agree. Some things make no sense at all, do they?
  5. The problem with age is that when you're young, you're looking ahead and it seems like it goes on forever. You get frustrated when the road seems so long. When you get old, you're looking back and it seems like it goes on forever. That's why us old types always say, where did it all go. 8^) Patience. Life will come to you soon enough.
  6. I painted the second part of a two tone paint job and have a problem. The first part is fine and I don't want to remove all the paint again. Most of the second part is fine except I got too much paint in one section and it's wrinkled up and will have to be removed. Do any of you guys have some sort of trick you use to remove paint from one panel (it's the trunk lid) without disturbing the rest of the car?
  7. I do that too but I'm lucky enough that I just dig back in after breakfast. Being retired, you know, does have it's perks.
  8. I really like it! I'm going to do something like this but my sign in the window will say "Not For Sale". People in our area are always "going to fix it up, one of these days".
  9. I've always liked the 39 and 40 Fords. Nice details and love the color too. I think Barster is right, looks like a Nailhead Buick to me too.
  10. I've got to do something like this. I'll have questions for sure.
  11. The Revell Colin McRae Ford Focus rally car and some wire wheels from Deeks for the 1950 Alfa Romeo 158 Formula 1 car.
  12. I use the nitrile from HF. About $10 a box. The sies run small. I have small hands and the mediums are tight which I prefer.
  13. When I master a nearly dust free paint job, I'll be asking lots more questions. 8^) Your rust work is great. PS Looked at your cars on your website. Great work!
  14. Looks great! I'm still trying to finish my first car. I've got a lot to learn.
