Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Since the cost of paint was brought up, I'd like to add something a lot of Folks might not know. Automotive Basecoat colors can be purchased in a Rattle Can. Stores servicing Body Shops Will sell you any color plus the cost of the can. The cost of colors vary. The ones I have purchased cost around $...

Re: Red Rocket ?

Paul, you are apparently correct. I could not find Liquid Glass anywhere. Perhaps they went out of business.

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Folks, when I write something my intent is to never hurt anyone. It is simply my opinion and it is up to you to decide what you want to do. I hope I have done that. I'm a Senior citizen and will turn 79 years of age in a few months. In my younger years I spent 13 years as an Autobody Repairman and R...

Re: Red Rocket ?

Hi there, paulg. Welcome to Derbytalk. I have Red Rocket but I chose to use Liquid Glass a couple of years back. A pint of Liquid Glass was $20.00 when I bought mine. I'm curious, are you dealing with scouts? Using wax is an extreme in building a fast car. I can understand why you might want to demo...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

I invite folks to try something and see how you like it. Let me know your results. Pinewood Derby cars will never be subjected to the elements so I abuse the Filler Primer. Let's paint a piece of 2X4 Black with Red flames. Start with a clean piece of wood. 1 can of Filler Primer from Walmart. This i...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Hi George,
First, let me say, You are a Fantastic Artist. I also watched your video on Molotow Masking Pen Demo. That was very interesting.

Would you tell us how you painted "Green Mamba"? I can't quite figure that one out. Thank you.

Re: China Revell wheel vs BSA (usa)

I've never seen China wheels being that light. I do notice the bore on the China wheel tends to be smaller then the bore on the USA wheel. Our Pack leader has a set of China wheels that were nearly perfectly round on Knott's runout gauge although they weighed 2.7 grams. I happen to have 100 sets of ...

Re: New Topic not appearing in most Topics

Howdy , doncrush, Welcome to Derbytalk I'm very interested in what this is all about. Unfortunately, also very ignorant. The only thing I understand are the rules. Let's assume you are entering this race. Exactly what would you do, starting from the very 1st thing, through all the things necessary t...

Re: What is your “real job”?

Hi there, Pinewood Daddy. Welcome back. In case you are not aware, the Girl Scouts are growing very quickly regarding the Pinewood Derby. This is probably due to the Ford Motor Company and Randy Lisano. Something to keep you busy would be to share your knowledge with the Girl Scouts and teach them s...

Re: Adding alcohol to graphite

That's very educational. Thank You. I had never heard of that before. It makes me wonder how a local Girl Scout troop learned of it.
