Roth Potter got a reaction from Hobie Hartkins in 'Orange Clunker Car' - MPC General Lee Build - FINISHED
Well, there's also no 01 on the door. This picture is from before the show even started so not everything is right yet.
Roth Potter got a reaction from Skipper Duke in Most attractive female guest/minor character on the show.
I couldn't find any so I went to her and asked about it. This was here face after I asked her.
Roth Potter got a reaction from Hobie Hartkins in Idea that should come true.
How cool would it be if Ben made it a Cooters Place?
Although Personally I'd rather see them rebuild the Valencia Oaks Movie Ranch cause it's empty at the moment anyway. The only thing still existing thing from the show there is the small bridge used once and the sort of earth dam.

I remember a few but Roxanne from high Octane is my favorite.
Roth Potter reacted to Boss JD Hogg in 'Orange Clunker Car' - MPC General Lee Build - FINISHED
Thanks Roger! The early Georgia episodes are my favorite and this is my favorite look for the General Lee. I like the earlier darker tan interior more than the later light colored interior.
Here is some more work I did on the interior. I painted the interior seats and door panels in Tamiya acrylic XF-59 Desert Yellow which is actually a dark tan color that's a good match to the saddle tan interiors in the 69 Chargers. The dash board, rear speaker deck and the kick panels in front of the doors panels are painted a darker color. It's a mix of Testors acrylic leather and dark tan. These areas were a darker color than the seats and door panels in 69 Chargers.
The carpeting is made with Champagne colored embossing powder I got from Michael craft store. I painted on some Testors acrylic clear and poured the powder on top. It gives the look of carpeting.
The center console is painted to look like wood grain although it isn't showing up to well in the pictures. I painted the inset in the dash Testors acrylic silver and then painted Tamiya acrylic flat black on top. The Tamiya acrylic paint is easily removed with Windex where as the Testors acrylic paint will not be removed with Windex. I used a toothpick slightly moistened with Windex to remove the black paint around the gauges and to pick out the details of the radio and some buttons. The red button on the left was painted after this was done. It was sealed with Testors acrylic clear.
The trim around the center console, door handles and the straight molding towards the top of the door panels is done with Bare Metal Foil. The window roller handles, round Charger emblem(in the top of the door panels), and trim around the shifter area are done with Testors acrylic silver paint.
I also added some Bare Metal Foil trim on the head rests but haven't taken any pictures yet.

You referring to "The Runaway"?
Roth Potter got a reaction from Hobie Hartkins in Did anybody ever use turn signals?
Well, the General didn't even have turn signals on the front part of the car as they were usually cover with bondo or something so 68 and 69 Charger front fenders could be used interchangeably. I do however remember seeing the rear turn signal light up in one of the two Reunion movies, or was it the full brake light?
Roth Potter got a reaction from Hobie Hartkins in Rare and Behind the Scenes Pictures of the Dukes of Hazzard
Somehow I feel this is during one of the last days of filming season 4.
Isn't this the place Enos has his place?
So, how many still sites did they actually have?
Boss in what I guess is Hazard, KY. Although I don't spot any other cast members here.

Roth Potter reacted to Meadowmufn in Forum Software Update
*GASP!!* After a long, long time and many many weeks worth of backing up, installing, uninstalling, uploading, deleting, and trying several different new versions of the software, I THINK this one worked. I think this might just be a miracle. LOL.
So, now that the forums are upgraded, I would like for all of you to notify me of any color weirdness (i.e. white text on white background, hard to read text, etc). You can post about it here in this thread and if possible, please include a screenshot. Also, if you run across any bugs, let me know. Posting images worked fine for me, but I know some of you had issues with that in the past.
And I don't know about you, but I'm ecstatic for the HNet forums to be back to the dark color scheme. Feels like home.
Roth Potter reacted to Meadowmufn in I'm hurting
HazzardNet has always had its booms and busts. The "booms" usually depend on if the show is on the air somewhere or if the cast is in the news for some reason.
Sorry I haven't been on as often. I've been dealing with "real life", some of it very good, some of it not so great. It's nice to have HazzardNet to "come home to" though and I thank all of you who have kept it going. HazzardNet wouldn't be celebrating its 17th year without y'all.
Roth Potter reacted to swinks in Dukes of Hazzard - Custom Pinball
G'day everyone, I have been very quiet and haven't posted alot really but have started a cool Dukes of Hazzard project - custom pinball.
What can I say other than this will be a massive project that is going beyond my current skill set (hoping to learn enough to finish this dream project). It will involve CAD designing, timber work, steel work, artwork and god help me programming.
It will be a full size pinball with a cabinet designed off the well known and typical Bally / WMS 90's cabinets with some unique mechanisms inside.
It will have a Cooter's garage, Jessie's Barn, Boss Hogg's Office and the bar of The Boards Nest as well as 2 ramps and one just has to be a jump ramp.
As time goes by please make suggestions re design or game rules - but will have moon shine deliveries, stunt show, bar fights, car chases and races.
pictures below are of my progress so far
- almost full a cabinet
- has to be Duke Orange
- concept art initially is like you are driving the General Lee so the sides of the cabinet are the car doors
- pinball's don't normally have art on the top of the backbox but this just has to have the flag just like the top of the car
I would like to change the art on the cabinet so a full General Lee with boss hogg in pursuit and then on the other side daisy standing by the road with Enos coming up, still want the cabinet orange but these images overlayed.
Next is drawing mechanisms and starting the playfield design - where the real fun starts, but I should mention that this will take a while but am very keen. On the side I love pinball and currently design products for the pinball industry. My ultimate dream is have a pinball company one day build this for all the pinball and Dukes of Hazzard fans.
Roth Potter reacted to HossC in Could y'all imagine the Dukes in a rock band?
If you take Cooter's character from the Georgia episodes, I could see him as a drummer in the style of Animal from The Muppets or Keith Moon from The Who .
Maybe Uncle Jesse could join ZZ Top, although he'd had to grow his beard!
Roth Potter reacted to Mark B / Scooter Davenport in The Hazzard Garage (Cooter's Garage)
The 'Rhuebottoms' set of buildings is coming along- almost ready to start painting. I think this will add some much needed 'context' to Cooter's garage and help to create that 'small town' setting.
