Guys,

Anyone have a lead on RV 8 fiberglass body panels for SCCA racing ?

Anyone ever dealt with a Britisher "John Hill". I hear he has made and sold RV 8 fiberglass body panels.

Hi Dave,

Welcome to the BritishV8 message board.

Please note that we have a few rules about message contents. This one is particularly important:
Quote:
5) Advertising of products or services isn’t allowed in this forum. There are only two exceptions: (1) we allow and encourage professional vendors to purchase advertisements that clearly look like advertisements, and (2) we have a clearly-designated “Classified Ad” section. (The Classified Ad section has its own, additional rules. Please read them before you use it!) Product selection advice and testimonials are generally okay… but if you think you might be “pushing the line,” you’ve probably already crossed it.

We also have some of the most effective and economical advertising options available for vendors in the British car hobby. Here is an overview of them: How to be a BritishV8 Vendor Sponsor

Regards,
Curtis

Hi Curtis. I'd think this sort of an announcement should be acceptable here. Notice he didn't mention any sort of a price, and was giving information of a new product which is in development rather than one which is on the market, a matter of considerable interest to most of us here. It's not for me to say, but I'd draw the line when the item in question actually becomes a "for sale" item or service. Prior to that it really is just news. In this case some rather interesting news at that. In fact, I'd like to see more details such as type of construction and weight. It really looks good Dave. But then, you knew that, didn't you.

Jim

Jim, if he had listed a price I would have deleted the post without a second thought. The post does say that the bonnet is "available". The important point to keep in mind is that BritishV8 can only make ends meet by selling ads. Our ads start at just forty bucks for a full year of precisely-targeted exposure. There's really no better place to advertise if you want to reach people who need a bulge in the center of their MGB bonnet, right?

Yeah Curtis, it's a fine line and a judgment call, and you're the man on the spot. I just wonder though if it might not be more productive to lean in the direction of the advertisers and potential advertisers whenever possible and sort of "court" them so to speak. It's a perspective sort of thing, are you losing money because they don't buy an add, or are you getting them used to something they will eventually have to pay for? Luckily for me it's not my choice but I think there's something to be said for the latter approach.

Tim, maybe you could try sending private messages to Brian and Dave using this forum's message system? Worth a shot.

Jim

I spoke with him on the phone once, then he never got back to me with a price. I'll make one of my own, but those are so cool.

I have the mold of a bulge, but no a good stock hood to graft it to.
