^Wookee, Showcars C.S. not so good, They totally ignored my request(s) for pictures of the Mid Dodge hood that just fabbed for a customer even though they were the ones that offered to show me the pics in the first place. I havent heard back from them in months, no replies to any emails. Phaaack them Im going elsewhere.

Does Showcars have anything in particular that Frank doesn't ? It is way past time that we get Showcars on our side. Please pm me all the problems you have had with Showcars and Doc and I will pay them a friendly visit once he gets back from his latest tour. We're also going to be trying to get another person up here who has fiberglass molds on the right track. It sure would be nice to get all the molds in the hands of a vanner friendly person like Hank.
It would be good if we had a list of the inventory of molds that each of the fiberglass makers have. I would be happy to put that on the showvans site. It would be good for business as well for people like Hank who does not have a website.

i know of no problems with showcars other than
lack of communication (from what i've heard over and over from vanners)
showcars once called me though and asked for Hanks number lol ... not sure what that was about but i gave it to em and asked that they stay in contact
... they never have and the last time i talked to hank they didn't call him either...

Unfortunatly..... I am being bruatally honest here.....
I think It's the lack of business more than any thing else.
One or two sets of flares a visor or a door or two a year is just not enough work to keep ether of these guys making products for vans.
Even with the molds making these parts is very labor intesive.Not to mention the rising cost of materials....

True Steve. I don't know if anyone has molds for them any more tho. No visor for mine tho. If I go with some sort of spoiler, OR? it will most likely be steel tho. I like metal lol

i was in the neighborhood friday so i stopped in to see Hanks new place .. it's huge! and a much better neighborhood than his last location ;)
Hank was on the road, but i hung out with his son a little while, hooked em up with a magazine and an nevc guide
sounds promising we may see them at a CT event this season
(i hope!)
and i requested that they get a "list" of the van stuff they offer so it can be shared here online
once again... as always.. they say HI
and if you need ANYTHING ya call em !
(there was a vanner on the phone while i was there with a very long shopping list! ..very cool ! )
