My own version of Head-to-Head with mild custom Pontiacs.



BTW, if I don't want to make these changes permanent, what kind of adhesive should I use that can be removed?

Nice Pontiacs! :thumbsup: I've had good success with using Elmer's Glue-All sparingly.

Wyatt, I like both of them.
They look nice. Great job.
And welcome to the world of JL customs.
Creating things like this is fun.
Thanks for sharing your handiwork.

Cheers. Cobra

They look good to me. If anything I'd cut a hole in the blue ones hood paint it flat black and deck pin it. Then you got the best of both worlds.

Nice work, Wyatt :thumbsup: That GTO is smokin' :cool: If you're talking about holding down the engine, I've used a dab of rubber cement with great results. A tiny drop of adhesive silicon bathtub caulk also works well. Holds the part in place but also stays pliant for easy removal. :wave:

Cool, thanks for the tips. I agree about the hood. I have a Trans Am I want to cut a hole in the hood, too, I just don't have a dremmel!
And here's the leftover, "No cars were hurt in the making of these customs."

Skipper! Your one of the few that I've heard that uses rubber cement. Great stuff. I've been an advocate since I started posting my work. Works pretty well for masking too. You just have to be thorough in your coverage. Clean-up is easy as you just rubb the cement off. I have found, the the soft plastic used on some of the windhields will fog if you use it on them. But that stuff will scratch with Windex and a paper towel. Applying the cement to both surfaces provides a pretty durable bond. I've got some stuff that's been displayed for years and I glued stuff like grillwork into openings; using rubber cement. :thumbsup:

Wyatt. Along with a Dremel I'd get me a jeweler's saw. Can't beat 'em for cutting odd-ball things like shaped holes in hoods. Of course you could also drill a hole in the hood and work your shape with a file or two.
