Just decided to start a new thread. Yes in deed every kit has parting lines. However most kits have really clean and crisp lines. The current 89 kits do not. It's great that your builder went to the extra trouble for you. I hope he will do that for all of his future buyers. Especially the ones gained from CLTC. This is what our mold lines look like. Heck where are the Bobs when you need them. Hey Kevin don't you have some shots of your 66 right out of the molds?

Hey Tim nice shots. That is exactly what I was talking about. Is that you and how much are your kits?

It is really exciting to finally be discussing OPENLY the '89 kits that are or will be available! Like Jack keeps saying - this website is gonna make it easier for ALL of us to get kits, and HOPEFULLY it will also lead to the kits getting BETTER with time and experience. This is NOTHING like the '66 arena so many years ago. We all have the internet, digital cameras and LOTS of word of mouth to discuss these kits and cars, so it forces the bar to be raised on all kit manufacturers. We are not so starving for info and leads that we will accept anything and everything that comes along. A prudent buyer is one who is informed and critical. I love it!

Yes, I did have hair once, but no, that's not me.

Here is what the backside could look like with a little work. This is coated with a truck bed liner material. I think I remember Rusty or someone asking about that recently...

That's absolutely correct Tim!
It all comes down to time, effort and $$, something I doubt you'll see in any
89 molds.

That top 89 pic looks like white clay in the mold lines?...if so that's a bitch to get out....but not impossible.....hire a kid to do it.

You are spot on DonC it probably is clay or wax or something. The lower one had the same problem. I did hire a kid to clean mine (ME). Dang kid was useless so I fired him and no one is working on it.

(Spot on) Thanks a lot Dee and Mr. A........
