How can someone tell the differance of a dash remake and the real vintage body, i was told that if you drop them their will be a differant sound, another person said there is a mold differance but i dont see it?
The things you learn... I never knew that. I always assumed they were cast with the divots.Additionally, as Dash bodies are newborn or recently produced, they exhibit none of the traditional shrinkage in the tell tale areas. You wont see post divots in hoods and trunks or the little divot in roofs where the index button for the glass is.
Pressure pot..casting...The first thing to check is under the body.Dash bodies are painted,Aurora bodies were molded.Half of the bodies made by Dash were never made by Aurora.Bill is right about the drop test.This was a way of determining if it was plastic or resin.A pressure pot used by certain casters makes a perfect body.Always look under the body to see if the name of the caster or initials is moulded in.Some of these guys can make a car look better than a factory car.
