Cool Billet Frames Whatcha think?

I took Todd's (TydlwavS) idea and tried my own!

Todd was hoping to get a GP going but didn't get much interest.

I ordered it from Billet Frames Sunday morning and got it today! The owner is Richard Kemmel and he's a great guy to work with. He sent me a few emails later in the day about suggestions for the plate. Price is $35 shipped.

Todd, thanks for the info!





I thought about Massachusetts Chapter, but a lot of the other New England guys hang out here so I like this better.

Darren,

You can order them anyway you want. Use Mid Atlantic for the bottom line.

I can't remember exactly, but I thought Bill wanted to keep the states separate.

We could always start our own. There's the Mid-Atlantic and The Tri-State clubs that I know of.

I hear what you are saying. We are lucky to have jobs and I know that no matter how good it is all of that can change in a moments notice. I just paid my mortgage today too it is due the 1st but payable the 16th, I also changed the program on the thermostats it is going to be a little colder at night now.

Where did you get the fasteners? Are they stainless?

Darren, those fasteners are going to be a b**ch if you ever have to take them out. I made the mistake of putting those on one of my cars so nobody would steal my plate and when I had to remove them it was a royal PITA.
