OK to all Windsor guys (and girls) I finally, after 8 months of waiting, got a fender lip roller from tire rack. If anyone wants to borrow it in the next couple of days please email alo@mnsi.net or PM me. I check my email every couple of hours. I am asking $10 to cover my shipping and bullshit charges. This will take you more then 6 months to loan and there isn't anyone in Windsor who has one. I only have it untill Sunday so if you want to use it, don't deley.

you should take it a part....take a bunch of measurements and pic's....and make one...you could rent it out on the side and make some cash *th-up* ...there doesnt appear to be much to it...

it's actually a pretty complicated design. it would take an engineer or really good crafts-man(ahem t-spec) to figure that shit out:cool:

for u jeremy :cool:


i would need it myself but it's too far of a drive. mine have stopped rubbing kinda eventhough i still can't get a finger inbetween there :D

and wheel and tirezone (or what is it called dixie/eglinton) is way to expensive $75 a fender.

i actually did find a place that was gonna do both for $80 but never asked them if they have that roller or not

I would, but I have so many projects/orders on the go that I really don't have time. As soon as I get a chance I'll fab one up!*th-up*

Mr. Seville, have you ever actually seen one? Actually it is very easy to make and I already started to make it but like T-spec, I am very busy and have very little time. Also, what is the point of manufacturing one if I will only be using it once! It would take me all day to make it when I could be doing something else productive on my car. Windsor318 and I rolled them last night untill 12 am and finally no rubbing! I'll take it on the Howard off ramp at 90 to finalize my work. Anyways like I said, if you want to borrow it today, please email me. Jeremy, I'll make you a deal if you want me to give you CAD data on the dimentions and pictures. Can you read iges files?

adtiano, these stupid thing sell for about 600 u.s making a couple at minimum cost and selling them for a couple hundred seem worth while to me... please send me the info... jeremybmw@rogers.com

Adriano

I know they are raping people on the price!:eek:
I would need to know how many people are interested in purchasing them and how much they are willing to spend. I wouldn't be able to touch the project for less than 3 peices at $250 each. Email me or reply if interested alo@mnsi.net

Sweet Al, I took Lesperance off ramp today doing 80 with out that familiar rubbing sound. Happy Day!!! By the way, couldn't get into that new bar tonight so got pissed off and now I am home on a Saturday night playing on the computer. I am such a lifer! I am making reservations to 'this is London' for next weekend. I will also PM Ack to see if he wants to go. See ya tomorrow at the Windsor meet biotch!
