  1. Thanks guys! I think I've finished up the vinyl top work. Installed the chrome strips on the C-pillars and the roof seams using 0.01 x 0.03 evergreen strip. This time I decided to fill the roof side of the seam strips to make them look a little more correct. Steve
  2. Thanks Kevin. It will finally give me the opportunity to fully show off one of my rebuilt interiors. By the way, the Plymouth "Chestnut" will most likely be used on an old Johan "flat box" '64 Fury I would like to get going on at some point. Steve
  3. I’ve always wanted to do a ‘57 Chevy in this color, so I’m saving it for a future Revell ‘57 Chevy convertible build. I figure at some point I’m going to want a break from these time consuming vintage revamping projects that I’ve been doing a lot of lately. A simple modern kit build might be refreshing at some point. But I’m already planning on my next project being a complete rework of an AMT ‘64 Bonneville convertible. That’s what the Pontiac Turquoise is for. 😊 Steve
  4. Another bunch of MCW paint. 1957 Chevy "Sierra Gold". 1964 Plymouth "Chestnut". 1964 Pontiac "Turquoise". And 1967 Mopar "Gold", which I'll be using for my '68 Coronet project. Also bought a jar of vinyl top texture paint to try out. Steve
  5. Yes, I ground out what I could from the backside with a Dremel tool and then finished with some scraping with a flat X-acto blade, sand paper and sanding sticks. Steve
  6. I spent way more time today than I expected opening up the cowl vents!! Steve
  7. “Best Model Car Parts” makes a fairly large variety of very nice gauge face decals for many makes and models of vehicles, from modern kits to some obsolete vintage kits. Steve
  8. This short video shows how quickly your model can go from being displayed with the hood closed, and then open, and back to closed again with the addition of mini magnets. Actually I'm just kind of enjoying making videos! Steve
  9. I have a line on getting a few cartridge labels printed. Steve
  10. 8-track tape? I'm not sure, but it doesn't look quite right. Maybe a little narrower? Steve
  11. I don't know whether I should thank you or curse you John!! Steve
  12. Call it a weakness of mine. It seems like any time someone makes a suggestion like this, pictures begin flashing through my head of possible ways to accomplish the task, and suddenly, like a scratch that needs itching, I find myself sitting at the bench working it out. It's really a happy affliction, but it does have a tendency to distract me from the work that I should be concentrating on. Oh well. It didn't take too long. Here is the finished player. Making a couple of tapes to throw on the seat should be pretty easy........that is if I knew someon
  13. Fabulous Bob!!! Just goes to show that there are really no limits when it comes to things like this. If you can scratch build an interior for a '60 Dodge, the sky is the limit! Steve
  14. Someone brought up an under dash 8-track player, and I became intrigued. I decided that it might be fun to try my hand at making one. Steve
  15. Well, not to be the type that shies away from a challenge, I thought how hard could it be to make an under dash 8-track player. Then it occurred to me that it might be fun, so away we go. Steve
  16. Okay. The kits that I have are the original issue stock versions. Steve
  17. I'm assuming that you're referring to the 4 door kit? I have a couple of the SS sport coupes. No 8-track that I can see in that kit. Steve
  18. My back yard is full of garter snakes. I have absolutely no problem with them as I see them as a benefit, but my wife won’t even walk across the back lawn! 😁 Steve
  19. I think I would if I could find one! 😊 Steve
  20. I guess I’ve always looked at the concept of the “Like” button from the perspective that if all that I can muster in the form of enthusiasm for the approval of something is a single jab of an index finger, I probably don’t really “like” it all that much. 😑 Steve
  21. You're correct, it is easier. It's also impersonal and lazy if you ask me. If I "like" something, I'll tell you so and then possibly offer a reason or two why I like it. In my opinion, "likes" don't carry a lot of value. Steve
  22. Thanks fellas! I think that I've finally decided on the color for this project. Not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but I've been contemplating this for a long time, and I've decided that I'm going with "J-Code Medium Gold" with a 2-tone gold and black interior, black bumblebee stripe and black vinyl top. Just ordered the paint from MCW today. Steve
  23. Wouldn't it be just as easy to type something short, like "Nice" or "Cool" instead of goofing around with these Facebook style "likes"? I never put much weight in those things. I don't pay much attention to "likes" on Facebook and I never use them myself. If I have something to say, I'll say it. If not, I'll just leave it alone. I'm not interested in keeping score. Steve
