          So with a model car kit, how do you secure parts like the hood? Seems like just simple gluing wouldn't be strong enough to survive crashing. (Good thing I never crash. 😀 )

            If you use a glue (often called cement) that is designed for model kits like Humbrol, Testors etc it virtually welds the bits together and very unlikely to break at the join.

          Simple gluing of model kit parts for slot racing works just fine. Haven't had any flying projectiles yet!

            Being a FORD guy, I did up a '53 FORD Victoria for commercial track hard body racing. However, it was at least 10 years ago and I used the Lindberg kit that was available back then. This may or may not be the same mold that Round 2 is using for the current AMT version (I suspect it may be, as they hold the rights to both trademarks). The Lindberg body was a bit stiff and thick, but I was able to win at least one race with it before I relegated the body to the "fun runner" fleet. MY AMT '56 FORD hardtop body was much lighter, more flexible, and handled much better. Ended up building a few of those for racing, winning one season championship with a nice two tone red and cream '56 Vicky and my usual number 14. We used Velcro inside the rocker panels to mount onto the PARMA FCR chassis with stock PARMA 16D Deathstar power, and Pro Track tires. I painted my '53 metal flake purple (!) with a few assorted decals. I know -- not exactly an authentic vintage color for an older stocker, but what the heck. I certainly knew which car was mine out on those 150 foot plus high banked eight laners!
            Man, I gotta start posting pictures. Thanks for the show, Harry! -- Ernie
