    Looks great. Yeah I know what you meen about pictures hide things. When I was still a teenager my dad bought a 71 Mach 1 for us to work on. In pictures it looked like it was in near perfect condition but when looking right at it you could tell just how rough the car was.

    Went to balance the prop. Huh... I had to dremel out the lead filled holes they had placed in from the factory. Not going to lie... it was quite a bit too. Somehow I magically managed to heal this prop by painting it. I added a tiny bit of lead back into the light prop side and filled it with micro balloons and epoxy.
    I taped a couple bolts to find the balance point needed, and ha! Exact opposite of the wieghts!

    Prop is now perfectly balanced. I have an issue. I left the prop the neoprene sheath and it now feels almost rubberish, and left marks/blemishes on what was a beautiful hard coating. Wondering what’s up? Compound says it’s safe for all finishes. Doubt it’s that because it was washed afterwords. Did the paint not gas enough? Left in the cover, allowed it to soften? Darnit.

  9. That's a bummer. My guess is it needed a little more cure time.

    Baffled the cowl air intakes. Used craft foam with Medium CA. But first used paper, trimmed and taped in place so I wouldn’t have to guess with the shape and form desired. Worked out pretty good.
