I built this car 10 years ago. I decided to add Archer weld lines, the large
Dupont logo, aci tags, early cots and several decal changes. When built in 1969, the 70 car series hauled 43,800 gals of Ethylene Glycol until
2008 when they were cut up. They weight 526,000 lbs loaded. The last step was to weather it.

Thanks for looking, Bobby

I'm always impressed with your builds. The mystery to me is where you get your detailed information to do such projects. The detail on your cars is phenomenal.

Thanks again Bernd. There are lots of good photos out in cyber land. I had plans for 7 of the cars, I photographed and measured 2. Sorry for misspelling your name, but it was that stupid auto correct.
