Back in the day: '66 Corvette (that hooked up), 327/300 hp, 3.7:1 gear, 650 double pumper, curved distributor, sidemount headers. It ran pretty fair.

I loved to pull up next to a jacked up big block that was loading up...

To my eye, the Cheetah (actually, all Cheetahs) "need" injector stacks. Preferably polished.

"[I am] just marking time until he gets his new green model all dolled up. My favorite color."--Model Murdering

Green was way down on my list until I viewed:


The Big Guy makes no mistakes, and (as usual) I re-aligned my viewpoint.

The next sunspot "high" (which equals high northern lights activity) is 2023-2025. If you decide to go, learn where the "band" of activity is and when is the best time to view them. Cold and dark is best. I went in the fall.

Chena Hotsprings just north of Fairbanks is a good bet (but, as always, no guarantees).
What does all this have to do with slotcars?

Sometimes it seems like the plastic soaks up the shiny after a while. I have waited a month and recleared and it has held up better.

Of course, I am a mere paint-plebeian and I actually did that only once...

Waitin' on Mr Bill for the definitive word...

Of course, with paint, there is more than one way to get there. Most of the ones I have tried result in tears.:cry: But if I stay after it, eventually I seem to get things to the point that I can stand it.

I am hesitant to wax anything until I am sure I will never want to re-paint.

Silicone can be a bear to lose--and I have commercial grade "prep-sol" just for that purpose.

Ken/Bill/All-- I use Meguire's "mist and wipe" and that does not seem to be a wax, but more of a solvent. Thoughts?

Also, Ken, how do you "strip"? Most solvents that will remove paint ruin plastic, and ditto for abrasives.
