    Any model builders here?

    I used to build models for Scale Auto Enthusiast Magazine when i was in highschool up until about 1998... Here are a few i still have sitting in a cabinet i built in the mid 90s. Never had a judge even mention that fiberglass doesnt rust... haha..

    Questions for you guys that use eBay

    I would contact the seller and tell him you feel like the item was misrepresented before going the complaint route through paypal. A couple months ago i purchased a seat that had what i thought to be decent pics in the auction and the description said that the seat just needed to be recovered...

    badbitty Delta winner lights were used on military bikes but not sure its the look your going for. I think a ball light painted Olive drab would look pretty cool. I think I saw one in the for sale section.

    Removing powder coat...

    Yeah, that's what I had heard. Would have done that but the powder coat was almost a day glow green color. I kept picturing me getting a nick or scratch in the new paint and the green showing through.

    Making My Own Head Badges

    Great Turorial, Thanks! I didnt notice anyone else mention this but PC Board etching solution that is available at radioshack will do the same thing to brass and copper as the muriatic. Also is slightly less dangerous to work with... However you still want to have good ventalation and wear...

    Been struggling with a frame that had been powdercoated and a pair of old BMX rims that were powdercoated black but were chipping. I comtemplated sandblasting the frame but they wanted like $75-$125 depending on how long it took them to get the old coating off. I decided to give some furniture...
