Sig229,

I do not have an answer to your question but I do admire your style. You did a search and posted on an old thread that was relevant.

The 100 post rule is something that some people bitch about and others surmount.

Welcome to the site and I look forward to your posts.

Rick

If I decide to sell on Ebay the point of my original post is what do I ask for it? That is the answer that eludes me is it one of those don't ask don't tell topics.

Sig229,

Relax, search and read. Learn your way around the site 100 posts will ad up sooner than you think.
Tell a little about your collection (with photos), a little history,perhaps how you found them. Just don't try to sell them in the forum.

Sig, we understand your frustration. The mods don't think they have it figured out. What is happening is that there is a wave of newbs signing up on SS to sell stuff and the mods are trying to figure out how to slow the bombardment..... sometimes causing collateral damage with seasoned vets like yourself.

Stay with it and you will be at 100 posts in a week. We appreciate and welcome your knowledge and tenacity.

Rick,
A suggestion on what they could do is charge to post a classified if you don't have 100 posts that will help the cause and scurry off the undesirables. That could be a win win for everybody.

Derrickl112 Thank you for taking the time and explaining the rules in more detail. I don't plan on Starting a DRMO on SS. ;-)
I do plan on staying up to date with current topics and learning from folks like you who take the time and enjoy sharing their knowledge and not assuming the negative. I just want to add I am not mad or feel that I was intentionally treated as a potential abuser/manipulator of a site, that I feel has members that I can relate with and share useful information on military vehicles. Thanks again.

Sig229, it's a legitimate question, IMO. I think Doghead has a goat and he could tell you more. Prices, according to my research is $6k-12K. You would be crazy NOT to clean and paint where the minimum investment would get maximum return. If yours runs fine and only needs paint, you could fetch close to the $10K area provided all metal is intact. S o much depends on condition. Difficult to say. Paint it, for sure. It would be the best money you ever spent. They are in big demand as small quantites are available. They seem to sell without problems. Does it swim? That's huge! I've seen fully restored items asking price $12K to $15K. No telling what the final price is. Good luck.

Thank you for answering my question I am jumping up and down rite now.:jumpin::jumpin: I will give it a one over and make it look clean. I will also contact Doghead to find out how to test it buoyancy without paying a visit to Davie Jones;)
Thanks again 3dAngus.
