    Fill in your location slot on your account, and I bet you will get a lot more guys willing to run over and help.
    I've ran over and installed a starter, checked N2O wiring, MSD box wiring etc etc for guys in the area.
    If we know you are close, we can offer a tool, show you how we did something,
    weld up stuff, etc etc if we have knowledge, tools or equipment you don't.
    I've had several buddies come over and use my blast cabinet, soldering iron, welder etc.

    I see guys asking us for something, but don't post where you are??

    Just a thought, I'm sure there are others that don't mind helping their neighbors??

    Plus maybe guys that are close can hit a car show or drive in together.

    And... Add the year of your car.
    Many specific questions require that bit of info to give you a complete answer.

    Like on another forum a guy asks where to take a girl on their 1st date.
    No state, no city, no price range, no info of any kind???

    I don't mind people stopping by the shop when it's cold to use my heat.
    I might have a tool you don't, or you need to look at my cage, wiring, chutes, wheelie bars, window net mounts etc etc.
    A photo is nice, but sometime seeing the complete design from several angles will click in your brain for your project.

    maybe an admin note for a sticky or email to new members. a common curtiousy list making sure to hit these checkmarks, for specific details. like if doing body work: year model and relavent info IE tee tops, or split bumper, or rear end issues: year model engine trans and rear end,

    just a thought, might be helpful

    One other item I have seen is there are times were folks solve the problem or question then don't add any other info. Part # combinations, Manufactures, or what I did to fix it.

    Great little thread. I'm alway glad to share my knowledge with people. A little addition information as pointed out goes a long ways.
