Well, here's my current project... Using a Hotwheels '79 F150 and a couple Larry's Tow Trucks (I cut the first one too short).

Notched both so they fit together, on the original Ford Chassis... looking pretty good so far...

It's currently sitting in a jar of lacquer thinner, then on to the JB welding!!
Huh? A new way of stripping paint that I havent tried I'm guessing.

Great project, can we expect to see the General Lee or Roscoe's patrol car on the hook when finished?

Wow, your doing something that the diecast giants were unwilling to do....building a FORD! That goofy Chevrolet they tried to pass off was laughable (the fact that it was incorrect not the casting it's self!) Project looks good, keep us updated!
