  1. I tried to email Keith Marks and haven't gotten a response. Is there anyone else who makes decals or anybody know of a better way to contact him? And where can I find the HEMI decal to go on the six pak aircleaner?
  2. ok great. Also I forgot I want to put steel wheels and dog dish hubcaps on it. Where can I buy them or what kit may have the correct ones?
  3. I am working on a Revell 71 GTX and I want to convert it into a Roadrunner. Where can I find the decals I need?
  4. My model is going to be a current example using todays technology. I just didn't know what all supplies i would need for the four link bars.
  5. I am currently working on building a 79 Camaro in a drag car and want to build a proper rear axle setup for it. I have a narrowed Ford 9 inch and wheels and tires but need to know how to make the four link suspension.
  6. I am currently working on the Hurst/Olds and am wondering what the correct color for the engine should be? I can't find any decent pics of it.
  7. I am currently building a late model Mustang Cobra Jet and am in need of a resin Tach. I'd like to get a few of them. I'm looking for the monster style preferably with a shift light. My builds are in 1/24 1/25 scale. Who or where makes these that I can buy?
  8. Where can I find detailed pics and info to help me build an accurate 68 Dart Super Stock?
  9. I am building this Merc and I want to try to make it period correct and it seems that factory it would have come with a flat head. My question is what type is it and what color should the engine be that is included?
  10. I'm currently building the Revell Peterbilt 359 and was looking for some parts to detail it a bit. I am looking for aluminum stacks, CB antennas, aluminum air horns, coil hose for the back, rubber boots for the intake tubing and maybe some custom rear fenders. Where might I find this stuff? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  11. I painted an engine with rustoleum an it came out like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH. What works best to strip it clean?
  12. Where did you get that intake manifold?
  13. Does anyone make intakes for the LS engines? I looking for the style used on the new COPO Camaro.
  14. I mostly just want to build a pro-street clone since most people wouldn't notice the difference anyways. I was thinking it was a 4-link set up with the coil over shocks.
  15. I was wanting to build a new COPO drag car and was wondering what the best method would be for converting the rear to a solid axle set-up. Any help or pics would be greatly appreciated.
  16. I'm trying to build a 1978 Dodge "Midnite Express" truck and I'm putting a 440 in it since they were known to have pretty much any motor you wanted including the 440. I can't find any pics of what the engine color would have been for Mopar big blocks in the trucks during that time. Does anyone have any pics or at least just and insight to help me?
  17. I liked my Vic but it was showing its age, it leaked oil like the BP spill, the steering was getting loose and it got terrible mileage. But all in all, it wasn't the worst car I've ever owned.
  18. Well after she hit 178000 we decided it was time to retire the old beast. Now I have a 2009 Honda Civic EX. It's a black 2 door 5 speed with a sunroof and the the bells and whistles. Best of all only has 36000 on it!
  19. This piece of art is called "Drunk teen on a Friday night"
  20. 99% is the crank position sensor. Without it the computer doesn't know how fast the engine is spinning and therefore doesn't know how to determine it's shifts.
  21. I too am curious about the engine detail, does the hood open at all?
  22. I just found it particularly funny because I work at an Autozone and one I pulled out a cap and it only had 7 brass terminals in it, the other was just the plastic slug left over from the casting.
  23. Forgive me if this was already mentioned, but I was just working on my 'Cuda kit and noticed that the distributor cap only has 7 terminals? Who knew the Hemi only ran on 7 cylinders? lol
