Interesting and Useful Links
 
We should have a post that keeps all the intersting Links in one page. Kinda like the samba page. Doesn't need to be on topic but shouldn't be porn or jokes...
Well maybe the occasional but thats what the shir thread is for.

Heres one I just found.

This is a great idea, but it would be nice if there were some catagories to keep them organised a bit better. I can see this getting multiple pages quickly. We have this on the main site....
Cool Links
...not sure how much trouble it would be to have something similar on the forums so that Steve wouldn't have to constantly update a page...

I like the idea of making a separate category in the forum. I'm just concerned with it turning into more that just a listing, and having folks chiming in and cluttering up the posts. If I were to make a separate section... I'd like to keep it just that...

But fuck it... let's give it a shot. Until I get the separate section made up... keep puttin' em here for now.

This company makes hardware thats specially designed for laminating and bonding. More of a plastics and Fibreglass thing but they would have been perfect for Grumpys underdash wire thing.
They also make inserts and weld nuts. :thumbsup:

Anyways there are plenty of other uses for these and their other products.

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.

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.
