Sample text

I added two 440 six-pack decals from a Fred Cady decal sheet to the twin hood scoops. When 1 first started this project no one offered the Billboard engine displacement decal, so I took the decal delete option. Fred Cady now offers the Billboard decals in 340, 383, 440, and Hemi versions, in both black and white. After the body was completely detailed, I sprayed it with Testor's Glosscote to add a little extra depth to the paint. Much to my horror, the paint started to bead. Rather than try to strip the paint, I decided to buy another kit and start the body from square one.

Now came the tricky part: installing the chassis. Correctly aligning all the parts in the body makes chassis installation easier. It was a precarious installation, as I had just one chance to snap in the chassis without causing any damage to the painted body. One of the mounting pins was misaligned and would not allow the chassis to snap correctly in place. A little surgical excision of excess plastic allowed the chassis to eventually snap in correctly. I could only accomplish chassis installation without the wheels and tires mounted to the chassis.

Apply cement such as Plastruct Plastic Weld to the mating surfaces and allow the assemblies to dry before working with the wheels any further. If the wheel backs have an extended axle shaft, be sure to trim this if needed to achieve proper ride track. Aftermarket aluminum trim rings can save a lot of time, but should not be used in chrome wheel applications. After all, it is aluminum! 00 I had saved from cutting lawns. Not quite enough! My Chevelle was not to be. While I was visiting my mom one weekend, she produced a box of stuff that she wanted me to go through before she tossed it.
