Looking for a painter (via PM) for something not too difficult, but beyond my patience level.

Indyhobbies.com is as well. Posts on the paint thread all the time.

Rockstarpaint.com is another great one in the midwest.

Contact Al's Hobby Shop in Elmhurst. Their painter is fast and reasonably priced. (when he is not drinking)

Does anyone know of anywhere to get replacement foams for the rear tires? I ruined one of mine on my newly glued rears by making a mistake while half asleep. Any other ideas would be helpful.

If I had a used up set, that'd be an option, I also glue the foams to the wheel so they don't slide around to one side since they last a long time.

Questions??

Not sure where to ask this (here or the paint/body thread) but what has everyone found to be the best method (longest body life) of attaching the nose pieces of the Protoform bodies like the Javelin and the new Firebird?

Just use the included screws?
Double sided tape?
Shoe Goo only?
Or a combination of these?

Please tell us your experiences.

With my J71, I used shoegoo and the supplied screws. Only got 2 screws with my Firebird, so shoegoo and repair tape for it. I might have some micro screws and nuts though.

Just thought I'd share this for anyone attending the Texas EOS race this weekend in Houston. I'm going back to my Sunoco Camaro scheme and am selling my one-race-old PF Firebird. Won't ship it, but will deliver to Houston. PM for details. It'll be cheap and has mounting holes for an Xray T4. Includes custom stickers, a 2nd painted nose, but no interior.
