    Ouch, bought in Hershey

    When using freight the companies liability is limited and usually to abut $0.50 a pound. That's why they all offer insurance at extra cost. I have had containers thrown off a ship to balance the ship out in bad weather and without insurance you are out of luck.

    Dealing with Extreme Surface Rust

    Exactly what David said. Make sure the sand blaster has worked with cars, too much air pressure will warp the panels.

    Using 3D technology

    That looks fantastic! New technologies have opened up a new ways of making parts. I cast up some shocks using 3D printed patterns and I cant tell from the original one I used as the sample. The only draw back I found was finding foundries that wanted to make small runs of parts.

    The decline of Sears

    Sears problems started long before the merger with Kmart. When the sold off Discover card, Allstate insurance, their mortgage division (now PNC mortgage) and Dean Witter (now part of Morgan Stanley) was the beginning of the end. The management thought it would be great to sell the money makers and concentrate on the loosing side of business. What not to do will be part of business school text books for years to come.

    De Jon Distributor Tag 1924

    I had talked with them and also Classics and Exotics before deciding to do my own, and no luck at either. Lavine Restorations had some and thought they had sold them a few years ago at Hershy.
  15. I am going to reproduce the missing tag on my distributor and need to find a picture of a good example of one to copy some of the wording. A good picture will do, looking for info on where they were located and such to add to the tag. I do have good examples on how they wrote there name and some of the patent dates.
