I was cruising around yesterday and went
around a sharp turn at about 50 mph...
crash, boom, bang!
My 68 Charger broke loose from its mounts
on the rear dash of my DHG Bullitt!
Damn! No damage to the Bullitt or the
Charger.

Any ideas on a better way to mount the
models would be appreciated.
I am currently using two toothpicks per
car that are wedged between the carpeted
rear dash and the top of the seat backs.
This is not working for lateral G's.

Hi Nasty!
Last night was like going to a semi-strip
club but never had to leave the house!
:lol:

I originally tried the velcro on the tires.
This did not work since the cars would work
themselves loose from the carpet.
Thanks for the input though!

I will probably go into the trunk and run
some wire up into the gap, loop it around
some part of the undercarriage of the
models then feed it back down into the gap
and tie it off. The cars will not be quickly
removable to play cops and robbers (part
of that immaturity thing again) :lol: but
that's OK because I have a second set of
unbuilt Revell 1/25s.

That's a good idea.
I don't think I would like the sight of the
paneling though...course if I painted the
paneling close to our interior color in a
flat...that might just work!
Hell, they would surely stay put!
Good idea Nasty!...now where's that paneling
I saw 3 years ago somewhere in the house!

Nasty has lots of GOOD ideas...I think you
probably saw his IDEAS last night or today
on here. :lol:

Seriously though these forums are great for
putting heads together!
There are some pretty smart people at
Bullittclub. (not me...I'm the immature one)
:lol:

Yes Cam, my bad! I should have been more
specific!
I will edit the title now!
My excuse is pretty valid...I am not
in the Bullitthead common sense club!
:lol:
Sometimes I may not see the forest through
the trees either!

Reading my post...yes it does look like I
crashed a real 68 Charger!

Sorry Folks! My apologies!

Well, I admit I am one person on here that thought he wrecked a REAL 68! LOL :lol: I did not want to admit it, tho. But everyone here probably knows by now how naive I am, especially about that post a while ago with that eye test someone put up here and I fell for it good time!!

PY,

How bout trying two-sided mounting tape used for mounting pictures on the wall. They come in a bunch of different sizes (widths) and I believe they can hold up to 2lbs.

Another workaround might be to use hooks for the four sides of the cars but might requiring drilling some small holes.

I bought a neat, silver hot/cold box from Shaper Image that fits in the square opening when you lower the back seat. Planning on using this for trips to Lake Tahoe, Reno, etc and I'm also trying to figure out a way to keep it from sliding around in the back of the trunk without drilling any holes.
