Has any body ever had any luck finding any thing by posting on the wanted form?

I have been a member for six years and never got any responses that paid off,

That is why i am asking is anyone has ever obtained anything from that board.

I am just wondering if i am wasting my time posting on that form

I have had success in locating several used body panels. If you scroll through the posts you will find others that have had the same results. BUT, I too have had several "wanted" posts go unanswered. Perhaps no one had available what I was wanting? That could well be.

At the same time I have been able to supply items that several other were seeking.

I have also had questions directed directly to several of our vendors go unanswered. Not good business practice in my opinion.

I've had mixed results in selling and buying. If I don't get an answer here I go elsewhere. I also search the forum to see if what I want has been offered.



If it was good 60 years ago, does that mean it can't be improved?

Where?

I have not had much luck on any of the boards.
It may be the stuff i look for is usually the harder to find parts.

I do think it great for new members to get help.
And i enjoying helping people when i can.
Even then i have offered people parts but there to far away to buy them.

How frequently do you post an ad
for the item you want please Vigil?

Vigil Craig Vigil

I average around a dozen posts a year in Wanted form for the 6 years.
That would be around 75-100 in the last six years total on this site.
I have three Wanted posts going at this time.

Why are you asking?

To see if you "Bumped up" your ads Vigil.

I just bumped one of your ads.

I am not familiar with the term. "Bumped up"

Does this put a priority on a post?

How do you accomplish to bump up a post?

Which one did you bump up i will go look.

How can i tell it has been bumped up?

Does it go to the top of the posts?

Thanks,

Vigil

That was nice of you i see it brought it to the top.
I wish it was the for sale add on the van box the others are not as important.
With no room i have to sell my old box before i can install my new box.
I can not wait to get back to restoring the van but i need to sell the box first..
It needs all new rubber in the whole cab and box connection.
And i would like to paint the new back before installation so the money helps a lot.

You can see i even started putting the jumper to catch you eye in the title..
May be that drives away people instead of drawing them in.

Click on reply, and then post
another picture of the body Vigil.

A picture of the rusty gutter may help.

Perhaps change the price a little?
995 sounds a lot less than 1000.

VIGIL

If you wait until your ad is off the top 4
and then add a reply you bump it up thumbs up

Best to make a new ad
when you change the price thumbs up

I don't know a way to delete an ad sad smiley

You could delete the content by editing it out. Then insert "Deleted."
