General Discussion / Special Stainless tig rod - looking for advice
« on: November 11, 2014 2:19 PM »
So i have alot of extra stainless trim from the merc - all 4 door - both beltline and upper trim.  I probably have enough to put about 4 sets of coupe trim together.  What i don't have is any knowledge about what stainless rod i may need to tig them together. 

Anyone have an idea what i may need to get?

thanks - tok

General Discussion / Sandblaster needed
« on: September 23, 2012 3:12 PM »
So i got all this "old car stuff" right?  Well, some of the stuff I have i want to keep for my own use and decoration.  Some stuff I want to sell.  So, the problem is this - i like clean parts.  Easier to transport, use for mock ups, prep for paint, panel fitment etc.  but I don't have a house yet, and if I did I would do most of it myself.

So, with the rusty stuff I have is there a guy/local business that would handle small stuff like car parts?  Is there someone that the club has used in the past?

I have valve covers, dashes, various brackets, some sheet metal, engine parts and stuff like that. 

I know that there are a few big businesses in this area but they deal with commercial sized stuff and so on.

I would like to find a guy like "amish ray" who i used out in PA i could drop stuff off at and he would have his 12 barefoot children help blast it and prime it for a decent price and turn around time.


just curious if anyone was thinking of going?


General Discussion / What up with Al's on 10East
« on: September 20, 2011 4:01 AM »
Found this place on my sunday drive trying to get a sense of the area.  Junkyard or upull it full of 87 astro vans??

Curious as our time of sun and green grass turns to white fluffy stuff.


General Discussion / swap meet in st. cloud?
« on: August 20, 2011 1:12 PM »
On my way through st. cloud yesterday on my trek, i saw a bulletin board mentioning an auto show and swap meet in the st. cloud area.  I haven't had any time to look anything up but I think it was going to be held on the county fairgrounds. 

Anyone know anything about  it?  It is supposed to be happening tomorrow.


I am wondering if you guys know anyone who is knowledgeable or handy working with shaping metal and fabricating parts/patch panels.  I thought there might be someone in the area (once I get there) that would be good to know.



I am making good on a promise to get my wife closer to her family and accepted a job at NDSU in Fargo. 

So...what does that mean?  I am looking to meet up with some suedes and talk car stuff as I won't have much to do until we sell our philadelphia house.  I am on the HAMB, which I suspect most of you guys are as well. I am not asian, but I have a funny story on how I got my Tokyo handle.

For those that I don't know, I grew up in WI and lived in the MN/TC area for awhile before moving out to Philadelphia and have been out here for the past 8 yrs. 

I have a basketcase 50 merc and go to as many swaps as possible.
