Finally on the last task. The wheels and tires. Dug through my 3 boxes of tires and found a set of Pirelli tires that will fill the meager wheels wells. Made a choice of which Shelby-like centers to use and got to work. Sanded the backs of the Shelby rims to eventually get the windows open. Spent a good chunk of the days machining two pairs of hoops to wrap around them. Finished the evening, sanding the tire treads and detailing the wheel centers. I hope to have them all attached by next week end.

Thanks guys. The test only used 16 of 20 of the fixtures. I ordered some 6-32 mounting hardware last night and cut my lid this morning. I think I will need a bit of angle aluminum to stiffen the front edge and provide positive locating of the sides. Meanwhile, back to finishing up my Mustangs.
23. May, 21:18
Bill Newcomer
My hardware came so I got right to installing the LEDs onto the "ceiling". I soldered everything to keep from having issues. The lights are somewhat a "cool white" as opposed to a warm white. Live viewing it looks pretty good. For photos I think I still need some foreground lights. My super shiny floor may force me to add some sort of light diffuser like parchment paper.

Looking great Mr.Bill!
17. May, 05:01
Bill Newcomer
Thanks guys, I am working on all 3 Mustangs simultaneously. I do a little bit to each of them once or twice a day. Windows are in. I just glued in the rearview mirror (sometimes I forget to). The 427 Cammer just got the distributor glued in. I have to let it cure before I wire the 'spark plugs' (with the correct firing order of course!) The engine/chassis/interior installation should happen this week. I still need to decide what air cleaner I want to use. Wheels and tires are already selected but I can still change my mind.
17. May, 05:15
Bill Newcomer
Another update. Chassis minus wheels is done. I have been detailing the body. Just put the headlights and bumpers in today. Going full detail on the SOHC valve covers which requires multiple steps.

Taig mini lathe
2 | 14. May, 05:17
Bill Newcomer
After owning my Taig min lathe for 4 months, I finally got to use it for what I intended. My Boss 429 Mustang is pretty much done pending wheels and tires. After detailing 3 rim styles, I decided I like the Magnum 500's. My tire selection is "big and littles" with the same tread pattern. My 1st problem is the rim OD is slightly too small for the tire ID. In addition, I wanted deep dish rears. I spent yesterday evening getting familiar with operating my new lathe. It has been over 20 years since I have operated one. Amazingly I got a good pair of hoops on the first try. I plan on making the front pair this weekend. Comments welcome.
14. May, 05:46
Treehugger
I've been wondering about buying a lathe machine at some point. I think I've learned that you can use a piece of emery cloth for gently polishing the metal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emery_cloth

I wish I had a big lathe to create a lot of metal train wheels, and also a big three piece aluminium artillery cannon (about 40+ cm total length, too big for a small lathe). I have a WW2 Dora railway cannon in 1:72 scale kit to fix. 🙁
14. May, 09:26
Bill Newcomer
Got my front pair of hoops machined and polished today. It takes about 4 hours per pair. Lathe is very messy. Aluminum chips and curly Q's everywhere. No way I could use it in the house.

Peppy, Here is the paint booth album and thread. Check out pic 15 above to see how I keep my air compressor cool.
Paint booth | Album by musclecarfan (1:25)
8. May, 02:25
Peppy
I get the noise now. Awesome.
A Buddy of mine has been running two PC cooling fans for years with nary the let down. Swears by it.
What I did was use one fan in a paint drying booth blowing across a 40 watt bulb. Basically a 2ft.X2ft. box from cut offs at Home Depot. 2 layers of aluminum foil all a round inside and it heats to 100°F in less than 10 minutes. The foil is easily wiped with a tack cloth before I start it. Works the trick.
I have to figure out how to post pictures here so I can give some help or ideas.
Now for the spray booth, I'll save that one. Still planning, it's a Jenn-Aire exhaust blower I got from a friend's remodeling job. Should be enough, right. Hehe.
8. May, 15:30
Bill Newcomer
Jenn-Aire blower might be a bit much. Unless you are good with sucking half the dust in the room across you paint jobs. LOL.
8. May, 18:18
Peppy
It's quite the contraption. I thought it was a major score.
There is no markings of any kind on it, so I have no idea the CFM's RPM's or anything really. I was looking to mounting it on a filing cabinet, two drawer, w/like a tote bin of some sort for the painting chamber, but I'm not good with electricity and could not guarantee myself I wouldn't ground it out and have me feel the power of Uncle Ben Franklin's discovery as it shocked my posterior across the sun room. So, we are currently...regrouping.
8. May, 21:22
Bill Newcomer
Electrical is my specialty. You will need to know what voltage it is. The motor will usually have a data plate on it. If it says 208-230v on it, powering it will be a challenge. If it has more than two wires plus a green ground, it may be multi speed. That will complicate wiring it up unless you know what you are doing.

Bozzer, With the 12v fans you can get a variable voltage power supply like I did. You can adjust the fan speed. The booth in my photos with the flip down shield was my inspiration. With the variable fan speed. I determined I did not need it.

it looks great. what kind of fans are you using? are they a commercial set all four together?
8. May, 12:45
Bill Newcomer
Most everyone has Smart phones theses days. Remember when having a pager was the big thing? Well there were transmitters in radio tower sites that sent the signals to everyone's pagers. My paint booth fan plate was the cooling method for the electronics in the radio cabinet. They are all rated at 14vdc. You could do the same thing with DC fans from a PC.

Been wanting this for a long time. Finally pulled the trigger. Coming from UK. A new LTL 9000 has come out this year but the sleeper is different.
18. April, 06:59
Bozzer
Breaker 19! Morning Bill. Italeri swap and change their generic sleepers, in every USA kit. I believe that this sleeper, is similar to the one, if not the same, as the Road Commander kit? Also the same as the LA wrecker kit. It's more of a coffin sleeper, than a double. I hope this helps you, in any future purchases?
18. April, 07:38
Bozzer
As another footnote, I'm pretty sure that it's the same as their Freightliner FLC kit too? I don't have that kit, but I'll wager a pint of beer, that it's the same sleeper..
18. April, 10:21
Bill Newcomer
Bozzer, Thanks, I chose this kit because it has the Ford front end and the low top sleeper. I will not be using the tow truck portion on this one. (Maybe somewhere else)
19. April, 05:03
Bozzer
I have the original kit, #728. It's a different sleeper, but as I mentioned, they're all interchangeable mate. It's a nice kit buddy. I'm not a big lover of the wrecker beds myself, mate. But, I have a few now, so I'm going to try something different. A bit of cutting, here and there, and I'm hoping to create a masterpiece. We'll see how that goes? Lol

Do it on the cheap Munky and move into your garage.

Haha! Funnily enough mate I just crawled out of the garage after a day tearing down the motor out of my Challenger.......... if I had a bed in there I might have stayed put 😄

That dio is looking better every day Bill 👍
That's the beauty of a dio........ constant detail changes, it just keeps on giving ;)

amazing build you are doing! great idea to use the magnets.
25. August 2020, 22:43
Bill Newcomer
Thank you all. The magnets work great. I can pick up the whole thing and transport it outdoors and back in with only a few items moving about. It will greatly save setup time if I ever get to go to a model show again.

Hi. Did you complete this project? Any pictures or video of the build. Any tips and tricks for how you did it?
27. July 2020, 14:43
Bill Newcomer
Yossie, I have been collecting ramp parts and I know what evergreen strut to use. But I have not gotten to this project yet.
28. July 2020, 03:41
Chaz Gordon
A Cottrell low railer is on my project ideas too. Ramps will be cast from the revell transporter pattern, and some other parts too. Planning to make mine a bit unusual though, basically a barn find specialists extract and haul truck.

Bill Newcomer
Cool. Keep us posted.

Would love to see your work. It's a project I'm thinking of but no ideas where to start ☹️

Ahh they are perfect! Even the centre caps are spot on, thanks Bill!
Now where do I get em from? Modelhaus has long since gone.

Try mixing Tamiya yellow with their lime green, you'll get somewhere very close
