  1. That kinda bidding/money and it has an unfinished engine compartment and used looking floor mats to boot..not to mention sun baked interior/ unmatched plastic. I smell shill bidding......... Why For 17,000. I'd sell them my immaculate 04 GT Premium with just 11,000mi on the clock! ( yes, it is for sale)
  2. Mods..if this is in the wrong place I apologize and please move accordingly. You ever want to redo those little numbers on a gauge, knobs or switches? I had this laying around from my model days as I wanted to make custom decals. Never even used it. Everythings still sealed. It's a decal system that prints assorted color foils to make the decal..and here's the kicker. It prints white! Now many of you know if you try to print with your home printer this will not work. Using this system, possibilities are endless. below is a pic of what one guy did to a homemade guitar pedal and further below is a pic of the kit I have for sale. Was gonna put it on ebay but I thought I'd offer here first. I posted a link to the manufacturer so you could see how it works. There is a video there to. I'm selling the complete kit including the laminator for just $75. It's way more on their web site. http://www.pulsarprofx.com/decalpro/Vertical/1_MENU/1b_Overview/Overview.html
  3. Just to make everyone feel alittle safer, I am an LLC, and there will be all of the same terms on my auction site as ebay for protection for the buyer, and the seller, as well as myself. There will be a end user license agreement just like ebay -and boilerplate seller contract just like ebay. Of course there will be feedback and rebuttal. Again this is a ebay "clone" if you will, but is however a site built with the integrity of most people being honest hot rodders out there. And yes there will be a bad apple here and there...but you also take that risk everywhere else. I have set up accounts with the reg gateways of Visa/MC, Paypal and Goog checkout. These are the 3rd parties to help manage the transactions, and you will have the protection of their services should you use them in your payment options. I have decided not to put in the barter option. That is (as I'm finding out) a really grey area.
  4. I know Steven, and you hit it right on the head. Sometimes it feels like an uphill battle with all the software, the hosting..the legalities of it all. But I'm determined to make a site for all us car guys.. We need to have a site with just a flat rate fee base for this hobby. We all work a 40 hr week and have to balance time with families as well as the checkbook. The last time I looked, due to the economy, our hobby is on the back burner. How many of you go out in the garage and think .."someday". I want to see those dreams realized for all of us. I still have such great memories of my pop teaching me to change the oil in the buick..didnt you enjoy showing your son or daughter? We don't need all these crazy things that ebay does to make a profit. Nor do we have to put up with it. I'm just a car guy..I'm not trying to "take on" those big guys, get rich or anything else. Cars are my hobby, I look at and oodle over cars of every make. I've built up everything from Z28's to a 73 Torino with a battering ram of a bumper and loved every busted knuckle and ramen soup-dollar saving moment. That's the spirit of this site..because everyone of you have been there...and it's time to bring that spirit back..
  5. I've been a member here for awhile now and have always heard the frustration about it and I've even delt with it firsthand. So, I jumped in with both feet. I bought my domain names and had some software developed, waiting on new pc to arrive. Still finishing legal mumbo-jumbo and hosting and other little stuff like that.. This was also born out of frustration of trying to restore various cars over the years, I got tired of craigslist and chasing all the dead end posts or hearing from scamer's that were out of the country right now. As far as ebay is concerned, aren't you tired of paying fees on top of fees -to list and to sell, to post pics and whatever else? Well I was so I decided to do something about it. Do I want to compete with them? Nope..I'm a car guy. And I just want to make our hobby, be it a hemi or pinto, a bit easier on the pocketbook. What about the forums classifieds you say? Not tryin to beat that either..it's a great source for stuff. I just have this idea to make a better auction style site for all of us in the classic car hobby be it ford-chevy etc..and I think as I spead some word to various forums as well as some marketing, I can make this well recieved and grow. The site will contain some of the things that first brought you to ebay when it was simple. Based on a working mans wallet, everything will have a one time flat fee based on an item, plus some other neat things like a barter/trade feature. For example; to list a car on the site, it would cost $15 only. Got just a single part? Just 5 bucks..No charge for pics or anything else. And definitely nothing on the backend from your profit. And of course 71-73stang members recieve a discount. There will also be alot more payment gateways than just paypal too! The site is totally safe and encripted and I will absolutely not share, or sell private info which seems to be the norm...Like I said before, if you guys can think of other helpful ideas, be sure to send 'em my way, or just let me know good or bad if I'm on the right track... Also, it only deals with cars & parts form the 30's to the 90's. Just classic cars, trucks, muscle cars etc..No more searching on that "other" site for say a piece of hood trim and coming up with two pages of floral seat covers and big wings with led lights..
  6. :D if you guys like the article rep me!!!!
  7. When the chemicals are applied in the proper order, the process happens overnight is what it said when working on small areas. He wanted to be thorough and document all steps with photos, so I think it may have been over a weekend. But at the end of the weekend, the floor and engine bay were in primer and ready for paint. Here's the floorpans.....
  8. Ok fella's, here's one we all need to throw our ideas to. Maybe even make it a sticky. Got a better way to remove something? Got a home-made tool to get the job done easier? Forgot how to do those "simple things" you were taught in shop class? You saw something on another forum that would work for our cars? Let's bring some things to our board! Here's one I saw elsewhere.. Overnight rust/paint removal. It can be done with great results! If your grinding, wire wheeling, scraping and sanding to remove rust then your wasting your time, especially with a car that has a lot of rust. The best method for removing rust I have found is this chemical process. I'm not talking about auto part store bottles of rust remover that take 500 applications or aircraft strippers that take a weeks worth of time to work. For this job your going to need 4 products. Most of which can be found at your local hardware store. Muratic acid, paint remover, and acetone. The 4th is ospho (phosphoric acid) I'm currently writing and transfering the article. It's a bit winded. Till then, here's a quick before and after.
  9. I don't have any panels but I think there are only a few pieces out there in the market right now. Seems the 65-70's get the lion's share. However, since you are a fiberglass repairer, you should post up seem tips or pointers for us. I for one would like to speak to you on the Sportster concept I'm working on...check my post.
  10. Welcome brother! I imagine with 408 and two turbo's you'll pullin the same G's as the space shuttle... We need some pics hoss........
  11. I thought you had a choice of the black or silver rocker panel?(depending upon color)
  12. LOL!!! I can see Rocket now behind two turntables and a microphone...;) Big hat, with cheesy raps to the ladies while calling everyone to the floor! Go get it big dog!!!:D
  13. First off.. My brother-in law lives in Pitts...Primanti Bros Rule!!! Second.. Thanks for being in the service, we all salute you! No. 3.... Glad to have you on board brother!!!
  14. Hang in there brother. Time and patience...and it'll all payoff. Think of the long term...
  15. Yeah..caught it on ebay. A 68 Mustang "Boss" as it was labeled. I'm a different blade of grass and usually go to the beat of a different drummer. I thought it was a really cool change from the ho-hum mundane stuff that crowds the shows these days. Dont get me wrong here, I love all those original 40,000 mile orig paint yadda yadda mustangs, but to stand out from a crowd..it's takes b@lls. Thats why restomod and builders like Foose are popular. Gets back to the roots of car crafting. Build what YOU think rocks!
