      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

You may recognize the design of this car from a hotwheels car released a few years ago. I built this from at least 3 models for one of my 4-H fair projects. I ended up cutting the doors and trunk out of this one, and cutting around the doors and trunk on another with a dremel tool. I bought a third 40 Ford for the rear suspension and graphics. I grafted the front suspension from a 34 Ford streetrod kit. I hate to say it, but the engine is a SBC, but it isn't a 350, it's a 327 from an Impala. I used welding wire for the hinges and plastic sheet to hold both ends of the hinge. I also had to fabricate all the inside parts, since the door panels did not match the profile of the door, and the trunk didn't have anything inside. It is painted Viper Red enamel with a HVLP gravity fed spray gun. I painted all the gold-ish colored parts with lacquer touch up paint, again with the spray gun.

Very nice clean build ! Great job opening the doors and trunk. I've been building for years and have yet to open up panels like that ! Beautiful Ford !
