Then you want to flame them for doing all the work for you and not giving you a free list.

You can simply pick up the phone Call ADM or WeaponX and order everything you need 1 stop shopping.

When you get the parts I am sure they will have part numbers on them so you know what you're buying.

It is very rare I will get involved in a conversation like this but your posts have me Shaking my Head in disbelief.

Ted.
maybe I am wrong but I'm seeking fellow Camaro lovers who do this as a hobby. if I wanted retail help I would ask jegs or summit. forgive me if I don't bow down to the retailers who resale something that's available to the public with out a mark up. I do not come to this forum to become a retail customer.

so retailers on this forum please ignore my post I don't need you or your defenders help

The really frustrating thing is we are pure commission. We have no guarantee or hourly wage, so we get zippo for giving out free information all day. And it happens ALOT here. And people think they are entitled to it. Ok, vent complete.

Im not referring to them supporting the forum, I actually don't even know if they are sponsors but was referring to them both being good for the aftermarket community in general.

Nonetheless good luck with your build, happy to help if questions come up about how to do the install.
I'm not interested in paying a 30% markup

Imagine the nerve of some folk.
is this site for the "hobbyist" or for a cheap way for retailers to promote their products

Davispaintandbody: you have issues with vendors? It appears you are representing Davis Paint and Body located at 2111 W Division St, Arlington, TX 76011 by your handle???

I offered assistance in another thread and you just expected to be spoon fed. No thanks.

So I will bring my smashed car in to your body shop, have you do all the work figuring out what I need, look up all the part numbers and you will hand me a list of part numbers to shop for the lowest price.?????????

I'm a Hobbyist.



Maybe it is 30% in the body shop world but it more like 10%-15% in the performance world.

Ted.

I think we are a bit off topic and as you can see, I don't post often. I would like to say that I have no connection to Ted Jannetty and have never communicated with him in any way. I would however, object to any implication that he should not participate at will on this forum and hope he continues to do so. I purchased my first muscle car 44 years ago and I've been reading about modifications long before that time. People like Ted offer extensive free advise on this forum. His names is one of the ones I look for when I hope to learn something reading this forum. I've purchased multiple times from a "big box" supplier. I can tell you from experience, if you have problems with a part and call their "support" line, it can be a less that favorable experience because you saved $2.00. On the other hand, the local mechanic I use, if I'm not doing the work myself is an x-Pro Stock racer. His shop has a machine shop, dyno facility, etc. He does not advertise, it's not easy to find his shop and he's not cheap but boy is he good. I get exactly what I pay for there. Please continue to post Ted as I will continue to absorb your fee consulting services Sir. This post is not intended to offend anyone in any way and I hope it is received as such.

I'm an avid diyer, and I get that there is 'some' fun in relying on your own resources. I've done a few smaller, Vendor kitted installs (see my sig) and even though you get all the goodies, there are problems to resolve even with a kitted product.

IMHO it would be better to get the proven parts even if it "is" a small mark up, because all of a sudden your looking for a solution to a few small problems, and your just spending more time and money than if you just had the road map right there.

Example- Hit my 4th auto parts store and voila they frigging have AN fittings! Still pricey but just an arms reach away. A days search for a $12 part, the overhead adds up fast.

Yeah- it was a learning experience for the 'next' project. Since the main cost is in the blower I just don't see the scale of economizing here. Any project you can do at home and walk away from happy, is sure to be a big cost saver and gratifying all the same if you get a full kit.

as a side note - OP didn't say Hey like I got this SC from a parts yard and I am going to try and do this etc, etc...the conversation probably could have sounded a little differently.



A lot has to do with how you approach people for free advise, like the guy with the pickup truck, a lawyer, or a computer
guy. 2/3 here.

Now I'm Kinda Shocked.

I have been in the automotive industry for over 40 years 34 Self employed, this statement provide another Shake My Head Moment

No good business will put the parts numbers and cost without mark up or they would not be in business.

The general definition of a business is when a person or organization profits by providing goods or services in exchange for money. However, profit can include other items of value, such as credit, and items and services that are exchanged in lieu of money.
