I actually think that this would make a great magazine. The part about the glove box door hinge and the pleats would be a great tutorial.

I'de like to see an article about making correct inner tubes with a follow up on how to insert them without pinching them against the rims. There could be links for where to get country correct air to inflate them.

I haven't received my Special Interiors issue yet. Has someone finally addressed the proper thread count for the herringbone twill in the 58 Henderson?

As long as we are tossing things out there, when are we going to start addressing correct "scale weight" in our replicas? 😃

I thought it was the 58 Henway...not Henderson.

You don't have to worry about threadcount on the seats of the Scripps-Booth Mosquito, it had the new and improved Gel seats... ;)

I hear that'll be in the March issue. Right between the realistic main seal leak how-to and the tutorial on what shade of off-chrome is correct for the heater hose clamps on a '69 Nova.

12 volts is still 12 volts in 1/25 scale. However, in order to get the amperage right you have to use 1/25 scale electrons! :wacko:

is that because 1:1 electrons won't fit through 1/25 scale wires?

That depends on the spark plug gap that you're using!

it would still be 87 octane but you'd have to have a really small plug gap or a really large coil or just go with HEI.
