    Don't can it! What filler are you using on it?
     
  3. Reposting for Rod in Austrailia. First one got lost in old thread, I guess.
    He's a HAMB'er, so I suppose he'll supply his own comments.

    You must have been re posting as I ask my question. Aaaahhh, the world of cyber
     
  6. I think it may be a combination of the filler you are using and the primer making it soft again and it shrinking. Just what primer and filler do you use?
    Hey, if you do give up on it, Im interested!
     
  7. they all look bitcin yall !:D
     
  8. Rod,
    The Camero was built before the dios. I shot the pic in my side yard and the trees are across the road.:)

    This is one of my oldest surviving builds. It was done some time in the late 1980s....​

    Lookin'good, Ol'Skool ! You're almost there. It looks ready for a coat or two of " Primer/ Filler ". Just protect your door lines, etc. to retain your detail. ( Which you have done nicely, by the way. )

    i made a two lane blacktop hood, all i did was cut the whole front clip off, glue the hood on, and make the scoop with thin sheet styrene. i just need to finish bodywork and i'll send it off to be casted in resin...
