Hey Dennis,
Ordered me Some SVT Tags from a Guy that makes them over on SVTPerformance,
clicky here (http://www.svtperformance.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=54950&perpage=25&pagenumber=2)

He also makes them for 03 Cobras (they say terminator on them)
One goes under the hood and the other inside interior.
He might make them for Mach1's:bounce: :bounce:

09-17-2003, 09:13 AM
Yep, Gary Loat.

Thats the guy who made mine:thumbsup:

I was about to say, what......a SVT guy make something for a Mach 1? No way.

He started making them since he owns or owned a Bullitt.

09-17-2003, 09:17 AM
Yep, the Ford Century book should be here today or tomorrow.
I was the only one to bid on it:D

Rick,

I just cut some black vinyl bumper letters that I need you to try and see if they are correct.
On your car or maybe a friends. Take and soak down the bumper with soap so you can slide them around and let me know what needs changing, if any.
These fonts are from the ones you gave me.

I got two pieces of mirrored stainless give to me.
They are 38" x 48". Im going to use one for the back of my die-cast car case.:thumbsup:

Ill bring the Cobra letters with me saturday.

Also did you see on EBAY, I got outbid. But a strange thing happened, I got an email Sat. nite from this guy saying he had one just like the one I had bid on and would sell it to me (including shipping) for $35
What do you think. I email him back and said if it is the black leather one with the black sleeve I would be interested.:cool:
Just waiting for him to email me back.
I checked his feed-back and it is clean.:thumbsup:

10-06-2003, 09:13 AM
I have already worked on the fonts this morning. Im going to ask the guys if they can burn out the stainless today.:thumbsup:

Yea, I saw that on Ebay. I told you about that extra dollar. But the guy may have been prepared to go even higher.

If you get that one for $35 and it leather, then heck yea.

Let me know.

Hey, did you smoke that Camaro saturday? Did you talk to Robert after that and hear what the guy said about your car.
:D

When me and you took off did you hear what I did?
I hope the hell not. I have never bragged about my drag racing abilities at least. But I still feel about a quarter inch tall.

Thats sounds great on the letters, just let me know:thumbsup:

Yes I did smoke him ,and I did talk to Robert that nite, I thought he wasn't "stock", you don't try that hard to catch somebody unless you think you have something "extra".;) ;) All Robert told me was that he ask what the hell I had did to the Cobra.:D Did he say any think else? I guess he thought he would smoke me with the "juice", did not notice I was S/Ced.:rotf: :rotf:

Yes I did hear something, did you miss 2nd. Come on you can tell;)

Hey Dennis,
Man, alot has gone on this morning with EBay. First I got an email that look like it was from EBAY saying that they were cleaning up their server and that my account was old and that I need to go to this link and enter my info for them to update so they could transfer it over.:doubt: (It had EBAYs logo in the letter but the spelling was terrible) So I sent the email to Ebay people and the emailed me back saying it was not from them and they were investigating it.:eek:
Then I got email from the person that was selling the Book I had bid on, saying that the winning bidder balked on the book and he was sending me this "second chance" offer at $50 for the book. I checked with Ebay and they said it was ligit.:rolleyes: I have to Oct. 11th to decide.
This made me :mad: because if that peson had not bid on it to start with I would have got it for $35.
What ya think, should I go ahead an buy it?:confused:

34Ford
10-06-2003, 02:14 PM
Good grief Rick,

I got the same mail from Ebay and I was not sure about it, so I deleted it. Its a scam.

Tell the guy your my friend and that I bought his first book and you will give him $35.

That way he knows I only gave $25. There will be more of them if not. In fact he will have to run it again anyway.:)

STANGBUM
10-07-2003, 07:17 AM
Good morn. Dennis,
Well I offered to buy the book for $43 (includes shipping) and he said ok:rolleyes: So I guess I will buy it:thumbsup:

STANGBUM
10-07-2003, 07:20 AM
Oh and by the way Dennis did ya get to work on the letters?:thumbsup:
I think me and Robert might detail a car this weekend if the weather is good:cool:
You know there is as show Sat at the Biltmore Squiare mall, but we are not the sponsor, so I might go just to relax:thumbsup: :thumbsup: and not have to work it:bounce:

Well I am not going looking for any Camaros....;)

The gas is a "special" formula I use....:D

I am going to go ahead and by the book for $35 + $8 shipping
He agreed to that price, but said he did not want to go thru EBAY because of the charges the apply. so I said ok???????
You see a problem with that?

STANGBUM
10-07-2003, 12:54 PM
We are going to have to find out what time that show starts Sat. Sounds like you are going to go! If not we can meet at the house or something. I am going to talk to Robert and see if he can go (he's got to ask Sheeri);) ;) J/K

10-07-2003, 06:44 PM
Thats sounds ok on the book. I used paypal to buy mine.

I was just talking to the wife about saturday and I told her I didnt know what time.

If its not raining, Ill be there.:thumbsup:

Oh I had a pair of the stainless Cobra letters cut today.
But we may have to wait for some thinner material to go on your bumper.:D This stuff is 20 ga. and its a bit to thick.

Ill let you have them though. Maybe you can find somewhere to put them even if its in the garage or house. Maybe your toolbox.:bounce:

Dennis,
I don't think 20 gauge is to thick, most of the ones made from other companies are 16 gauge. That would be thicker wouldn't it?:yup: :yup:

34Ford
10-08-2003, 12:27 PM
16 gauge!!? Goodness, thats a 1/16" thick!:eek:

These I have are 1/32" or .032" thick. And in my opinion, its to much.

I have you a pair anyway.:thumbsup:

Did you see if Robert could come play with us saturday?:bounce:

10-08-2003, 01:07 PM
He said he might have to work 1/2 day Sat. If not he would go if Sheerri will let him:rotf: :rotf: but if he does work he will come out after he gets of work:cool:
I am still trying to find out a time:(

Hi Rick,

No, we went down to Lake Lure. Robert and I took some pics of our cars, and then went down 64 and eat in Hendersonville.

We got a late start. Somebody didn't get up till 11.:rotf:

I ordered the Invinca-Shield for my bumper last night. I didn't see the need for it on the hood.
$114.

I figured I would at least get it on the most abused part of the car for now.

Now if I could only find some clear shields for the headlights.

If you make any extras of the MUSTANG letter my sister would love some. Or if you need a set let me know and I will order some. Because I know Robert will have to ask Sherri first and that might take a while for him to get up his nerve.:rotf: :rotf:

See ya tonight, 6:30.

Dennis, do you have to write any code with Homesite, because you do with mine:(

34Ford
10-16-2003, 09:16 AM
To be honest, I still write the html manually. I know Homesite has the power to do it for you, but I never explored it.

You should go and d/l the demo and you can probably find a serial later. At least you can see if you like it.

You can get version 5.0 here. This way you dont have to register.

10-22-2003, 09:15 AM
AOL should work fine.

I use several graphic programs:D Photoshop,Photostudio,Printshop and others I cant remember here at work.

I took the original pic and blurred the background and then made flames on the 03 Mach 1 letters and then added smoke.
Those are created by a plugin for Photoshop. Ill have to go home to tell you the name of the plugin.

I haven't been back to that site that has the lake effects in years.
Might have to go see whats new. That water effect can be customized a lot too.:thumbsup:
