I am hiring out the work so it gets done quickly, and correctly. I am working with a PHP developer now - thanks for your patience, guys.

Canada / Re: Some asshat stole my Oldsmobile
« Last post by turbobuickltd on February 19 2018, 03:04:02 PM »
Well I found it. Was at the Canadian Tire in Scarborough on Friday buying some tools to replace what was stolen with the Oldsmobile. When I was cashing out I looked out the window and saw it. My stuff was gone. They put about 300km on it. They fried my brakes. I stripped it today and will scrap it tomorrow. Not worth my time and effort or cash to fix up for sale.

On the bright side my new to me 91 Ninety Eight is sweet!

You have to unblock all four, then add them back one at a time.

the only downside is the 'pop ups' when you hover will vanish.   (which I'm cool with, and then some)

'teve you'll dig uBlock over Adblock. It uses waaaaaay less HP than adblocks big ass blacklist.

LOL.   I have the technology to make them....     ....but holy friggin crap, Batman at the costs!!!!   (not to mention the drive arrangement!)

For example, on the timing covers...   Even doing it on the cheep cheep, my cost would be more than the Jegs or Summitt, or Silver Seal would be willing to pay for a bulk 'make next to nothing, but do it in bulk' thing.   So that means that I couldn't suck it up, make a big first run then recoup most with a large order from the big guys for bare castings, then offer hand built complete stuff to the Buick guys.

Real life would have me lay out thousands for a minimum of 200 bare castings (that I would have to make room for at my house). Then I would have to finish my print, test a few on the CNC and hope to dog they pass with no raw casting where machine surfaces should be.    THEN I could get a price break to to the rest of the batch  (all out of pocket) while I start getting emails saying ''why should I buy yours when blah-blah says I will gain 2 tenths and 2MPH or get a BJ every time I use their cover.....

I would love to have this off the ground, but honestly the numbers just don't jibe.

That doesn't include the cast plenums, valve covers, trans pans, oil pans, and pretty sweet spacers/plenums with built in akly distribution systems.

I have prints and stuff and things in my head that are badass but I can't compete with the chinese/walmart ''performance'' parts if I have to put my real money on the line.
