Got this in the mail Monday. . .
Nice parts !!!
Like the NAPA commercial - "All the Right Parts In All the Right Places"
I got your message about the confusion about being on the list and am working on a resolution.
Here is my first preliminary mock up. I could have started with all new parts. I decided to go with the Powered By Junk mantra With a few exceptions, gears, leads and braids I intend to use all old junk to create my car.
Starting with a poorly started AMT '32 coupe with the wrong grille shell, a hacked on Dynamic frame, a rusty Kemtron 6 volter, cut "Grops" on Corben wheels, front drag wheels with bearings etc.
I was thinking of hacking the hood to expose those 6 deuces. I will have it tough staying within the 3 1/4" inch rule but I think I can squeeze it.
Before I go any further, is everything here acceptable per the rules? I may just need an extra 1/8" over that 3 1/4". Any objections?
Now for a paint scheme. Was thinking all shiny but I may leave everything rusty and crusty and go with Matte black. Easier for me in the long run.
Page down and take a look at some of these Even if you hate drag cars you just can't hate these.
Good link ... nice cars.
Yup ... this looks right http://www.jalopyjou...845&postcount=2
Squeeze it in ... that's why I had to go with the Revell gear and not the first choice 64p Weldun set screw. The Champion/Weldun locking collar version might work.
