hey there,

Been out all day a thought I'd pop in. Really tired though. This Chev' looks great. I love the colour--is a tan? If so--nice choice. I've seen many 1/1 cars that colour. Again it's really nice. In fact the pic with the Nomad shows quite the race collection building--good show!

On another post you brought up having trouble with detail work. Sir, I can relate--My vision was better than 20-20 (in one eye anyway), but pulling late shifts from 7pm to 1130 am as a fill in for my drivers, first effected my light sensativity and soon after I lost my close-up vision. I have been wearing specs for about six months now and haven't got quite used to it. I still loose the damn things constantly. The wife bought me a desk mount work light that does the trick. It's adjustable up and down, back and forth, side-ways and in and out. The top is circular with a flourecent bulb incircling it and the center is a large magnifying glass. I can see really close up with no problem now.
cheers......

Hey boss9,

Actually that cplor is tan. It is the same color as Roger shows of his sample on his website. When I saw that color I had to get it. I have another that I am going to paint also, but I haven't decided on a color yet.

Hey Mike, great looking Chevy :thumbsup:

By chance, do Roger's bodies come with screw posts molded in? Or is this something I need to add on my own. :confused:

Tx,
Unless Roger has changed his molding practices, all CSW bodies I have picked up had the posts molded in place. You will have to drill them though. :thumbsup: rr

GREAT, I have no problem drilling the posts myself.......it's nice to know I'll save a bit of time with the posts being present though ;)

I need to complete a couple other projects....then I need to snag some bodies from Roger :)
