Thanks Jack..

...whatever I paired with this wagon seemed to detract from it`s impact...turns out the K.I.S.S. method still has merit Nerd

Yep; DM was big on that little detail early on as well as using scaled door lock buttons. Back in the day though, their use of realistic door hinges instead of the obtrusive 'dog leg' hinges, was all the rage. That was followed by more realistic hood scissors hinges.

I`ve been aware of the members (justifiable) distaste for doglegged hingery and have admired the hood scissors....but this is my FIRST time being aware of the Valve Stems
