Sorry but if you did the Manuel. I wouldn't have needed your help. Thanks anyway.My car wasn't hard at all for me,But a beginner would have had a hard time.

I did the manual over fifteen years ago and I'm sure that since I did it things have changed so it is patently unfair to blame me for things that were out of my control.

I'll take the heat for writing it but not for those things that are wrong about it since the car has changed over the years.

By the way have you ever sat down and tried to write an assembly manual like this one?

Sorry if I come off Strong about the Manuel,But it's far from the way that car should be built.Sorry.

And yes I write one in my head every time I do a car for someone.

Great tell me how and I'll change it as soon as I get the time.

We are going to put it on a CD as soon as I get to update it. Hopefully with real pictures and stuff. The artist who drew the originals with me was this crusty old Bosun's Mate from WWII and hated Marines and bent my ear with sea stories that made me gag.

Start at the beginning and rewrite the whole thing!!! But before you do that yall need to do some better thing's to the car.Like 1st sell it with the floor already glassed in.That's just the first thing.But I know yall can't do that because yall can't make the door's work right.That's what I was told by MR Marty.Well mine work's great.And none of the steel support in the car is welded to the frame.Go back And check yall email and look real good at the pics I sent yall.And just maybe yall can do some improvement's.

It's a shame that one of your rep's asked me to come and run your engineer department.

I have to laugh! Centerline what you askin' for amounts to either bribery, blackmail or hardcore needlin' for a freebie.

Pathetic!! How do you sleep at night?

The new guy here is Mike S. from Streetbeasts who is in Tech Support. The other guy StreetBeastsOptsMan is Marc Gold from the very same company.

Tell you what, WE'll build the kit that WE "PAID" for without any "PRE-EXISTING Conditions" and GLADLY report back on how the build progress goes.

Centerline, the offer to auction the car off FOR CHARITY once built was a great way for you to walk the talk.

Instead, You done got called out when all you wanted was a freebie.


GAME OVER Cheapskate.

Look if you guys want me to leave fine, I'd much rather go talk with my Marine buddies then get abused for the work I have done.

O.K. I owe all readers of my previous posts an apology for sounding overly harsh. Don't leave. I missed a good chunk of posting a couple of pages ago, so it's my fault. Sorry about that. But one thing that has bugged me since I first did join in this thread was a comment about someone deleting pics put up by streetbeastOptsMan. Barring out and out advertising, that is something that we as mods (or Jon) don't do. I do not remember ever seeing one put up, nor ever seeing anything else mentioned about it. Please feel free to fill me in.



In a while, Chet.

If pics are ok, this is one of me building one of the first CMC 34's way back in 1988 I think.



I modified the firewall to add additional room for an air conditioner. This is the first style body we built, not the most recent one.



I also installed Nine different gauges in the dash as well and even an Infrared door lock mechanism out of a Renault Fuego (sp) and yes I am responsible for all the spaghetti under the dash. Our first 34 coupes had no underdash covers and everything was exposed, later on after everything was working properly I had to cover and tywrap all the mess up into place and make it look good.

I was an Avionics man in the Marines.

I think Grandpa Cobra is on the up and up..Having worked for a fiberglass body manufacturer myself full time for 13 years, and still being involved with the industry, none of his story sounds far fetched.
He works for a company that no one likes, but there are always respectable guys working for companies like that...

Been there. I wrote many pages of technical instructions,(on paper, not in my head.. ), and yes it is hard.

Building a complete kit car when under the constraints of a management who has an entry level, economy minded target market already in mind, is an exasperating and frustrating job for anyone with any amount of pride..


Later, Mikey

I'm no sucker...... You on the other hand actually paid for a StreetBeast. I think that says it all.
