:lol:

If there were pics you'd have my money :p

Don't worry about it, I'm looking at a 2-3 week wait for my suspension parts. So I get my suspension un-rolly-fied, and I don't feel like undoing bolts that many times... Get to be a little lazy when you work and go to school all the damn time.

I feel your pain,

That's why I'm trying to convey a sense of just poking some fun.

When you get it done you get it done. No rush, Quality first, Price second, Speed third is my mantra.

Well, that and the gf says I just can't rush certain things. ;)

its cool. i got it. lol. i just dont want people to think i have more important things than my customers. i am spreading myself a little too thin trying to grow this business. i am trying to do too many things at once. now i have been concentrating on one thing at a time and getting it done. i am at strut bars on the list. i am shooting to make 2 rear strut bars this weekend and they will be painted monday. one i will keep for myself to use as a model and the other will most likely be yours. if i have time i will also make one from bar to have as a model and then i will make them to order after that. i appretiate your patience with it too

Ahh, nah, your still good in everyones books. Just taking the time to reply in a timely fashion has put you ahead of many other online shops. :roll:

If you could paint the rear bar say grey(hope it's close to the stock interior colour), and the front one blue. I'm going to cut the cover caps to fit over the rear bar, so I want to try and make it look as stock as possible.

Sleeper cars ftw!

through my work day i get on the computer and check my mail 3 times each day and reply to questions or comments and after work ours i am on the computer sometimes from the time i get home till i go to sleep. and other days i am just on and off, depends on how many comments and questions i get.

as for the colors, i can add grey to my list of standard colors and my interior is grey so i will match it as best as possible

I got a 90 Vert. I'm about an hour away. I go through your town a couple times a year to visit friends in St Agustine. I'll try to swing by some time. You could PM Geometroman he is in St Augustine with a 91 Vert.
Good Luck on the business

i ended up selling my metro to a friend who was in very bad need for a car. he had it for a short time and ten had problems with it. now he has sent it to a junk yard so i dont have a car to model them on. if i had access to one i could make them, but for now it doesnt look like there is much i can do

i have the civic half size radiators which seem to be a direct bolt in for the metro/swift. i havent actually tried it myself, but when i had my metro i had them side by side and they looked identical. the only down side is it is a struggle to get the radiator hoses on. the pipe that you slide the hose onto is bigger than stock. with a little muscle and maybe some lube it will go. even for the civic they are tight, its just how the aluminum radiators are. they are $110 shipped in the US. $125 to canada.
