    I just posted a thread and it was deleted stating:
    “Your post in the thread Plastic radiator repair was deleted. Reason: rat rods and frame swaps are off topic“.
    Where do I post it to be “ON” topic?
  2. I suspect plastic radiator tanks are not traditional (not used in rods built prior to 1965), thus the delete.
    I would try JB Weld for this repair. Available at most hardware and home improvement stores.

  3. If it was actually a rat rod or frame swap, i don't think there's anywhere here it can be posted

  4. Threads get deleted, I have had many disappear and I don't take it personally, you just have to move on and try to learm what not to post, reading the rules helps most of the time. HRP

    Not offended, just I have now been trying to decipher the definitions of traditional and custom as it pertains to the HAMB. I now realize that I was OT, even though it was an “oh, by the way” ,sideline question regarding a sideline project. The lines are a bit blurry to say the least, but I will say ten Hail Marys, ask forgiveness, And go polish my wrenches.
  7. Lmao!
    I don't think the hail Mary's will suffice, i think you've gotta recite the flathead firing order ten times and sacrifice a billet wheel ;):D
  8. Religious posts are also off topic man, it's in the rules.;):D
  9. Heck, I've had 3 threads locked this month and a couple deleted, sometimes I don't know what I did wrong but I think the most recent thread being locked might be due to a member running the thread off track talking about the pandemic!

    I was talking and posting photo's of good times. HRP

    Sorry, that’s off topic. I’m going to have to close this one.

  11. And that's the kind of things that get threads deleted - OFF TOPIC CRAP! HRP
  12. I wasn’t going in that direction...too bad he didn’t say “posting photos of Taxi, Mr Belvedere, Leave it to Belair,
    Carol Burnout or Charlie’s Anglias”.

  13. Holy crap! Lighten up, We have heard your “my posts get deleted all the time story”a gazillion times. Just throwing a little humor into it.
  14. Humor is off topic? Be right back, gotta go read the rules again.....

  16. I understand if somebody is just being a dick, but you can kinda look around and tell who contributes to the forum. Feel like I'm being followed by a cop.

  17. Yeah I push it too far sometimes. Feel free to call me out (anyone). Its just my way of dealing lately with these crappy times. They give us a bunch of leeway though and ya gotta respect that.
    There are a bunch of guys here with a good sense of humor and I thank em for that. Makes my day!

    Sorry I stepped on to this ride, I forgot too leave a disclaimer, or any lol's or Ha Ha Ha's after my previous post, do we have to start following up anything or everything that we say with explanations of intent for the wording or how we ......hell with place is safe any more.
    Moving on...I did wipe up , or off , my mess first

    I apologize for my comment about being sick of social distancing and so should Jalopy Joker, I think his comment and mine helped get your thread locked.

    Yet thread about 2020 cancellation collectibles is left standing, nothing about cars there.

  20. John, don't sweat it man, the moderators do what they think is best, any thread is subject to take a hard left turn and be deemed political or whatever, the moderator can choose to clean it up or lock it which the later was done.

    Again, don't worry about it. HRP
