Looking for a 4x4 plow truck in good running order. Older truck with good plow up front but not overly expensive. Live in Durango but would travel for the right vehicle. Not really wanting a 8' bed as we have some tight quarters to plow.

Doing it in a shop you'll get raped b/c they will tell you the entire dash has to come off. If they do actually take the dash off it never goes back on the same again (think squeaks and rattles). There is an easy way to do it yourself with a dremel. The core sits behind a single piece of plastic under the glove box. Simply make an access hole, do the repair and plastic weld the piece back in place (or if you're in a hurry duct tape works too, you can even get it in OEM black ). Besides, if it is blowing cold it may not be the core itself, but instead google "blend door"

Unsolicited advice I know, but it could save you $$$$

Anyone with a good camera, and more importantly, that knows how to use it, near Centennial, CO (Arapahoe and Colorado) that can help with some outdoor shots of motorcycle lighting? Payment in cash, food, beer or product can be arranged :).

Looking for a public water fountain

Trying to help out a local math & science early learning center by replacing their non-functioning fountain. Anybody have some leads (or in your garage) on finding a used one? Current one looks like this, but could likely go with a freestanding model too.

Is anyone a serious coin collector? I have a bunch of stuff that needs to be valued and possibly sold. I am not asking for a freebie but needs someone that knows what they are doing.

The only way to do stuff like that is the direct and easy way. You so right about the squeaks, rattles, and cost.

Motorcycle wanted for College Students to Convert to 3 Wheeler

I teach at CU Denver and our students were going to convert a wrecked R1150RS to a 3 three wheeler as the Senior Design Project. This would be similar to a Can Am Spyder, but they design, analyze and construct new.

However, it appears that the motor is shot and now they are looking for another motorcycle option.

Since they are going to take off the front end, does anyone have a suitable motorcycle, wrecked (front only) or otherwise for this endeavor?

A reasonable price would be good, free would be better. Donations are tax deductible for a value you, not us, set.

Let me know if anyone has anything that may fit the bill and I will pass it on to my students.

Ron

DR 650 Engine

I am in need of a DR650 engine. Seems I bought one with a paper towel left inside. 2002 or newer would be best. Will pay a reasonable price.
