Wanted: Youngstown door
« on: February 14, 2013, 02:11:32 PM »

Does anyone have a Youngstown door in their scrap box? I need to use it to make a new grill for a truck model. I don't mind if the car is damaged (caked in paint etc.) I just need a Youngstown door of any size or shape.

Thanks

What kind of truck uses a Youngstown boxcar door for a grill? I'll take a look in my collection...

Will that would be great. I really need to do a run of cast spoked wheels for this thing.
