    I appreciate it. Good to be here. I'm trying to get back to one of the older threads from 14 years ago , because I have been watching the dukes on my original DVD series. The episode order where it makes sense to watch them. Just want to add that " Uncle Boss" and Baa Baa White Sheep" are missing from S3 on the thread list here, I don't believe on the DVD itself.

    Apparently Gypsy is another word on the banned words list, I read a news story yesterday about the Gypsy moth is going to be renamed because the name is now considered super-offensive . I think there are better things to worry about at the moment than the renaming of a moth. My Fitbit said I walked over 15miles while mowing Friday and Saturday. That's about the distance of a walking/hiking/biking trail that connects two nearby parks. That's kind of neat to know in case I ever want to walk that trail.

  9. Thank y'all! Actually the Lucifer Mustang would be kewl, but I'm not aware of any decals for it, and they seem a bit tough to improvise....have also considered the Gray Ghost and Black Tillie II, but they only appear once, and to the unwashed masses would only appear like any other car off the street (mostly). And actually I DO have a black '68 Charger from "Bullitt" The next one will be: Hughie Hogg's VW Beetle chop-top (turns out it isn't a true convertible)!!

  10. Hey folks, Had a few requests here and elsewhere to see the entire lineup (so far) of my Hazzard County fleet which has been under construction for the past 6 years. None of these are out-of-the-box, each taking a huge investment of time, research and effort. Greatest challenges were in the tow truck. Next project is already in the research and materials-gathering stage. Hope you enjoy!

But tonight, it's Friday night and just like in '79-'85....it's Friday....the official DOH Day of the week. In here, every day is sunny, ( ever notice how it hardly ever rained in Hazzard but they were able to farm?

  17. I think I forgot to mention the wheel hubs. The kit wheels are totally wrong; the good folks at the automotive modelers forum guided me toward the wheel hubs from the AMT 77 Ford van, and then one of the members was kind enough to send me a set which he was not going to use. Once primed and chromed, they were perfect! They also almost perfectly fit the aftermarket tires which I had ordered (see earlier post June 2). Absolutely perfect! ONE FINAL DETAIL: the CB antenna. In the episode "The Meeting," there is a perfect closeup view of it, which I used as reference to

    This whole "woke" thing is getting more absurd by the day. On the local news yesterday they did a story on "weight bias". Some 400+/-lbs lady was on there saying fat jokes are offensive. Next thing you know gassy people are going to say fart jokes are offensive.

  19. Thank you for the kind words Hobie! Almost there. Just using the Daisy's Car kit decals from the MPC kit for the roof-section of the stripe, although the two end sections need to be removed. Daisy's car was in constant use on the country roads and so needs to have a generous amount of Hazzard county road dust. Just speaking for myself, I don't believe in making showroom-fresh vehicles with immaculate chassis and wheel wells to portray actively used vehicles. The overall dusting is a shade called Armor Sand, with some Military Earth Brown right behind the w

  20. Now for the really scary part: the pinstriping around the main stripe. In my research, I took special notice of how they did the real one around the door handle and at the very front. I've got plenty of straight-line fine decal striping, but the curves are a problem. Trying to paint those fine curves right alongside the large stripe AND make them look good is an awfully tall order. My experience (both successes and failures) tells me to go another route. I decided an ususual approach: cut away the pinstriping from the decals of MPC's Daisy's car, the very

    We just got back from our daughter's in Virginia. On the Pennsylvania Turnpike on the way home I was being passed by an orange car and looked over and saw a big 01 on the door. And then I noticed it was a newer Charger with a Confederate flag on the top. You guess it. I decided to go after it.....keeping under the speed limit of course......I lost.....but still, not everybody can say they raced a General Lee. It turned on Interstate 99 and headed north toward Penn State. I think it had New York plates. I wonder if it was heading home after going to Cooter's.

  22. And now the last daunting challenge, the stripe. To my knowledge no decals exist for this body type. I do have the decals from the MPC kit of Daisy's 74 Roadrunner, but this is a different body type with different contours, and the subtleties of the strip were very different between the two vehicles. I also noticed the first '71s they painted for this had stripes that didn't quite fit the countours of the new type, but by partway into the second season the paint crews seem to have mastered the marriage of '71 body style and stripe style. My solution: use the roof decals, the pain

  23. Okay, back to business. Earlier I had gone to the trouble of cutting away the GTX emblem from the grill (since all such emblems were removed from all cars in the show), then priming/painting and re-chroming the bumper with Alclad. Next the chrome bumper was masked, and the grill and its surround was sprayed with enamel Steel, and a wash used for the grill's recesses. Then to make the headlights. I use acrylic gemstones because they're soft enough to have the facets sanded away to make it rounded, then polished. When finished with Future/Clear acrylic floor polish, t

  27. This scene is from the end of the Season 2 episode Feed the Kitty. Skipper:"I guess I learned how to be an expert juggler all for nothing." Gilligan:"Come on Skipper. You didn't turn out to be an expert juggler at all." Skipper:"Oh yeah! Watch this Gilligan!"(bends down, picks up 3 coconuts, starts juggling them. One gets lodged up in a tree, stops juggling, looks confused.) Gilligan:"What's a matter Skipper?" Skipper:"Well, I could've sworn I had 3 coconuts."(Looks up, coconut falls from tree, conking him on the head. He looks dazed, stumbles backwards and sideways each way, as we fade out.)

    Ring notification woke us up last night, apparently police were looking for someone last night and they set off our Ring doorbell camera when they were checking around our building. Took me and the wife about an hour or so to get back to sleep. I usually turn the ringer off when we go to bed but forgot to last night. I watched this episode of The Orville the other day called Majority Rule that mirrored our current Social Media problem even though it was made in 2017. Even though the show is basically a Star Trek The Next Generation spoof that episode was very interesting to watch consider

    Friday we dropped the wife's car off to the new mechanic's. Turns out the RR spring is broke at the bottom perch or whatever you call it. Due to the part shortage we have to wait a week or so for a new set of springs. They were nice guys. We found out the tire place the tires were purchased from never sealed the RR tire either like they said they did. They took the tire off the rim, sanded the bead on the rim and added sealant to the tire. Wife got new front brakes and rotors put on there too. We went shopping while they finished doing the brakes, I got a new phone, looking forward to trying i

    If you want to see some of the behind the scenes stuff at the SRX races Hailie Deegans YouTube channel has a few videos https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC61Cf_xnxEHa-8Dvas3pQHg Paul Tracy doesn't come off too well in the Slinger Speedway one, talk about classless. He's lucky none of the other racers were there to hear what he called Hailie, Tony probably would knocked him on his butt.

    Tempers got heated again at Slinger speedway. Paul Tracy used his bumper up. Marco Andretti won both Heat races and the main Feature Race. Local star Luke Fenhaus came close to winning the Main Feature Race but a late caution wreck that took out a few cars allowed Marco Andretti to get the jump on Luke on the final restart.

    The SRX series was at Eldora this past Saturday night and the action was hot. Tempers flared and the cars got used up and most of them will need new body panels for the next race this Saturday night. If you missed it you can watch it here Tony Stewart won the first heat. Marco Andretti shocked everyone winning the 2nd heat. Tony Stewart won the main Feature after passing local racer Kody Swanson and Paul Tracy who led the most laps.

I'm now ready to begin posting an amazing (and frustrating) journey to build the most accurate Cooter's Tow Truck ever done. Maybe. First off, there were several tow trucks used over the series. Here's (mostly) when each appears: -Season 1: Brown Chevy, simple tow rig -Season 2: White/Blue Ford with Red Holmes wrecker -Seasons 3-4: Big Yellow Ford -Late Season 4 through 7: White/Blue GMC with Red Holmes wrecker By far
