Hey Nick, Rob or Steve,

Can we pull this to the "I'm too lazy to search" page??

I think more people would add links if it were there.
I agree. I just found this post today and it is a very useful bunch of links.

So as not to be a non-contributor, I also frequent this site:

HR.com

It's not much on VW's, but as far as overall hotrodding stuff like body work, painting, electrical, etc. it's great.

Why is Rob getting the credit. This post was my I
idea in the first place.

I am just kidding, I actually know why.
I am glad to see its taking a life of its own though.

Thought I would cross post this here.

I have a "little black book" (literally) that is invaluable. It is the..

Pocket Ref by Thomas J. Glover. ISBN 1-885071-00-0.

It is literally a small black book (about 3x5 inches) that has all kinds of useful information in it....thread forms, conversion factors, material properties, pipe dimensions, etc, etc, etc. It is 542 pages stuff.

Here is some more about it.

Pocket Ref

Awesome book! Extremely useful to have around.

Any one care to post a list of pinstriping links? I just got a new computer so I lost all my old bookmarks


There are some cool hot rod/low rider videos, project build ups, show photos, and even a small pin up section at HellCatRods.com
