    After a 12 hour day of work I went home and started looking online for a new reason to start building that little 327 sbc I have sitting in the shed. Not that the wife will let me buy anything else since my Ford is in the paint shop and my second truck is sitting in the garage waiting until I finish the first one. We can still day dream right ??? Lol! Hope everyone has a great Mother’s Day with there loved ones this weekend. Remember without moms we wouldn’t be here today enjoying what we love to do.

    Set about to polish the door panel stainless I picked up at Carlisle. Sawed a Grove in a 2x4 to hold the pieces while sanding. Just push the mounting spikes into the groove and clamp it to the bench. 400 grit first, needed something lower but didn't have any for the test piece. It was very hard to get the deepest scratches out. Then 600. Had some 1500, 1557484575643798802495.jpg Then staves 1, 2, and 3 polishing on the trusty drill press. Dedicated buff for each grit and clean 'em with a screwdriver is the extent of my knowledge on this. Oh, and don't slip!

  11. Got up a daybreak and took my wrecker and a wad of cash and drove over a 100 miles to a estate auction. Went to get a bidders number and there was a big sign. 10% buyers fee. Turned on my heel and went back home. I aint about to pay a friggin buyers fee. And they didnt state anything about a buyers fee on the advertizment on the Aiction Zip website.

    Took in the swap meet in Tappen at the home of the famous Rust Bros and Canadian Hot Rods Inc (build after market frames) A ton of people there and they were shooting for the TV show during the event. Some good cars showed up as well.

    That was a topic of conversation today Charles:D
     
  19. Yes it should be illegal. Because if the auction company is charging the seller a commission and then charges the successful bidder a buyer fee. That creates a dual agency. No representative can equally work for two opposing partys at the same time. Its simply greed. In a estate auction they are already getting 20% of a persons lifes accumulation and to ask a additonal 10% is immoral!
     
  20. That black ford sedan is the kind of mild custom I really like. not over done and a lot of gaudy chrome!

    Barret-Jackson and Mecum and I am sure several others do it and get away with it. I can see a percentage going from the seller to the auctioneer as the auctioneer has expenses but I'm damned if I understand why the buyer would have to pay as well.

    So very true! Whenever I see a deal taken advantage of, I walk away too. I am not a fan of middle men making sales. But it seems to become more prevalent nowadays... Sigh

  23. many decades ago I learned that if you cannot buy at your price and term you like. Walk Away. If you keep your cash something else will always turn up. And I already have too much hoarded stuff anyhow.

    Had a private seller try to pull that "processing fee" shit on me once. Told him he was lucky I only looked like a cop and got back in my car and left.

    Just got back from the nursery, picking up some bushes the wife bought, along with bags of topsoil for the raised beds. Mother comes first today. I did scrounge up an old model A stock intake and carb that a buddy came over and picked up.
