Re: Advice needed: Car with removable top or bottom

The images have been restored, Comcast stopped doing their personal web pages a couple of years back, this killed all of my pictures. I have been slowly restoring the pictures to PhotoBucket. I'm glad i kept a backup of most of the online pictures.

Re: 2016 car “The Snake”, Baracuda Funny Car

Mark, the haulers and the Snake and Mongoose cars that sold back in 2013 at the Barret Jackson auction (actually they did not sell during the auction, but after the auction), was the thing that got me going on building this car. I plan on building the Mongoose car, but not this year. The Tyrone Malo...

2016 car “The Snake”, Baracuda Funny Car

The car I decided to build this year is “The Snake” funny car, this one was brought back into the public eye by the 2013 movie, Snake and Mongoose. Years back I wanted to make these cars but the daunting task of re-creating all of the sponsor stickers as decals has kept me from completing this. I ha...

Re: Shop ideas

Mark, this is a great idea. I may have to make something like this in the future. Can you explain what the markings on this cutter are for?

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Dremel Derby Days

It looks like this is based on Facebook voting. So the way to win is you get all of your friends to vote for your car, or your son's car, and you win. So this is a popularity contest...

Re: Shop ideas

You all are high tech, lol. My biggest issue was getting the pieces loose, then mixed up. Came up with this out of frustration, a few sets of axles back. Been a game changer for me, lol. http://i65.tinypic.com/wbtjih.jpg It almost looks like it dispenses like a Kleenex box. Looks like it would work...

Dremel Derby Days

It seems that voting has been completed in the 2016 Dremel Derby Days, in this competition they were giving away a 3D printer. The winners have been announced on the Dremel Facebook page, not sure if this can be seen without being a member of Facebook. But here are the winners, I’m assuming in order...

Re: Shop ideas

Here is another one I have wanted to build the last couple of years. When we are polishing axles we place the paper on a mis-drilled pinewood block, sometimes the paper gets all messed up and falls off the table that is holding the block. And when I am blowing the axles dry after cleaning them the a...

Re: Pledge Floor Care Finish?

ah8tk: Good to know about the dust issue. I'll have to make some kind of hood to sit over it. Guy in the video said that it took about 30 minutes to dry. BTW, it makes me sad that the images are broken in the post you linked. :) Most of the images are back, the others, from later in the post may be...

Re: Pledge Floor Care Finish?

General Motors used only lacquer paint, not enamel, on their cars in the 60's. Who can tell me what the letters COPO stand for? Except for Stan Pope. We know he knows the answer. Central Office Production Order- was Chevrolet's special-order system, notoriously used by dealers in the 1960s to build...
