Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

      Yeah man, she's a good seamstress and has the time. I help with the cutting and all that but she does the sewing.

      I will see about picking up some houndstooth in the next couple days. Any preference on the size of the pattern? Standard black/white or something else?


      Edit 4/9/14: my wife ended up only making the first few. I've been doing all the work since 2012. Upholstery is a manly craft ;)

              If you have the Alpina or Mtech fabric we can use it to make one, but I don't have any of those patterns. No leather at this time, we'd like to see the demand and get some cheaper ones done before getting into expensive materials.

                OK, I'll see what the fabric stores here have in stock.

                For the first several runs you'd have to figure out a way to secure it yourself, but we are working on one with elastic on the bottom so it would just snap over the frame.

                    the last guy making these on here had people attach them just with glue under the boot trim and zip tie on the shifter shaft and they seemed to work well. i know there would be interest in cheap replacements, but buddy i just did a 5spd swap for needed a shift boot and looked for a cheap one for quite some time untill finally finding a black leather one from a uk company on ebay for $12 so if you can be around that price and in the states i think you could sell quite a few, even more if you found yourself a supply of trim bezels to attach them to.

                      I think that's reasonable. The couple we've done already have a flap sewn inside like the stock one has, no zip tie required. We are looking into using elastic to hold the boot around the bezel so you don't have to glue. Quick change ftw.

                        fabrics added to the first post. the black fabric feels like a thick microfiber and looks almost like alacantara in person. Pricing is to be determined and will be posted wednesday, we picked up the fabrics today so I wanted to post to find out who would be interested in what. Shoot me a PM to reserve the fabric of your choice and we'll let you know pricing wednesday.

                              Will a leather boot off an e34 that I currently have in my car work as a pattern for you? Or you want a stock accordion one? I have both and would gladly send you either :D
