Very nice! I was curious about "bestmodelcarparts.com" It seems they have abandoned the website.

Mike goes totally though eBay, He makes all my custom plates by request.

I found him. Lots of gauge options. I most always make my own plates. acme.com/licensemaker/licens..;plate=1969&r=1089994017

No problem, I try to use Factory color paint if I can and this is who I get it from.
23. September 2019, 17:35
Chris Greathouse
I forget, do you decant or spray from the can? And if so, do you use a straw into a collection cup, or some other method?
5. October 2019, 03:23
Bob Hall
No, I think that was Tom.

Any problems laying the colour down?

Tim Heimer
Take your time. hurry up and screw up go together.
6. October 2019, 12:46
Bob Hall
Oh yes, Slow is how I roll. Color was easy, I just hate that it's molded in 3 Colors, so masking and primer is a must or paint color won't match,

Looking real good! Is that a K&N air filter or a ford air filter?
18. October 2019, 03:58
Bob Hall
Shelby uses the K&N Cold air intake factory on their cars.

18. October 2019, 20:25
Bob Hall
Sealed Room, sealed off the windows and cover the AC vent when painting and clear coating.

Looking good Bob, realism seems to get harder the bigger the scale, you nailed that tho ;)
31. October 2019, 23:23
Bob Hall
Thanks ! Still have to do the black trim around the doors and windows and lay down the Shelby stripes and side decals, tail lights and door handles. Going slow on this one.

That's some sharp, clean work. Looking forward to the finished car.

All I can think of is the Happy Gilmore bleep scene. Its what I do when this happens. What a bummer!
9. November 2019, 02:10
Chris Greathouse
Boo! Sorry to hear... Not fixable at all?
9. November 2019, 02:10
Bob Hall
About the words that were yelled ! Rear stripes and spoiler jacked up and screwed ! 3 months of work down the drain !
9. November 2019, 02:15
Tom ...
So so sorry to hear that, Robert. She was looking so good! Fingers crossed you can still salvage her....
9. November 2019, 06:11
Bill Newcomer
If you were still in Jr High, I bet an M-80 could relieve some of the stress.
9. November 2019, 08:35

Ah shit Bob!!! I feel ya pain......

13. November 2019, 03:51
Chris Greathouse
You could hide the damage it by putting it in the back of my crazy car lot :P
13. November 2019, 03:59
Bob Hall
OK Ladies and Germs, Think I may have remedied the issue and salvaged the Shelby.
22. November 2019, 21:44
Munkyslut
Tell us more Bob! Details!
22. November 2019, 21:46
Tom ...
Yay. BTW, going to see Ford vs Ferrari tonight!
22. November 2019, 21:48
Chris Greathouse
It's alive!!!!!!!! details!
22. November 2019, 21:57
Bob Hall
So ! Had to strip the back deck sand down the boo boo spots, re-prime and use the last of the paint (thankfully had just enough left) redo the Deck Medallion and harvest new stripes from another kit ( Another Shelby will be a police car, so won't need the top stripes) Rebuffed entire body and put 4 coats of clear coat. Added a few new pics.

@ Tom, Sweet ! Tell me if it's as awesome as it looks ! Matt Damon better not mess up as Carroll Shelby ! And FYI = Netflix just added "The 24 hour war" great documentary !

Sweet news Bob! Durka Durka!

Chaz Gordon
Yay, glad you salvaged the situation.
23. November 2019, 02:59
Bob Hall
OK, Got the tail lights, turn signals, headlights and covers in place. Just have to get the black trim around the windows and paint the rear view mirror and attach the sunvisors, so should be comlpeated within the next few days.
23. November 2019, 20:26
Chris Greathouse
^And then he drops it LOL JOKES
23. November 2019, 23:24
Munkyslut
Haaaahaha!!!!! Chris I wanna be a fly on the wall in Bobs house when he reassembles that Pony, the poor bloke will be walking on eggshells......
You can do it Bob, you got skills mate ;)
23. November 2019, 23:34
Munkyslut
Actually a shame you didn't photo document the repair Bob, save skills are often more impressive than build skills I think
23. November 2019, 23:37
Tim Heimer
Nice save on that nosedive! You had us worried!
24. November 2019, 03:43
Bob Hall
Few more pics until I get the window trim done and side view mirrors installed.
24. November 2019, 06:31
Tom ...
Bob, the movie was good enough. The racing sequences were great, the recreation of the era was amazing but the tension/dynamics felt flat. A little too predictable emotionally but still enjoyable. I just finished watching The 24 Hour War and enjoyed it immensely. Thinking there will be a Ford GT 40 and Ferrari 330 P4 in my stash soon.
24. November 2019, 09:19
Bob Hall
Sweet ! Sounds good, Think I'm going to have to find me a GT40 also, Maybe we need to have a Ford V Ferrari group build in the future. LOL !!!!!!!!!!!!
24. November 2019, 17:50
Chris Greathouse
That actually sounds like a lot of fun Bob.
24. November 2019, 17:56
Munkyslut
That's be easy then.........cos the red thing will never finish anyway so just build the Ford
