I picked up this diecats Hemi Dart a month ago or so. These are selling on EBay for $200+!

When one showed up damaged for less than half that, I jumped on it! 

It has broken attachment points for the base on the underside (which doesn’t bother me) and the hood trim is missing. It’s been sitting on my deathbed since I got it. I figured I would fabricate the missing trim.

Here is a little photo selection from the process.

Nice save there.  The Hwy. 61 tool of this topic is very nice, and it would be a loss not to rehabilitate any that may be helped so.  Thanks for sharing.
