I'm sure this has been thought of before, but maybe the powers that be could comment on what/when/how/why:

How about having a location with How-to down loads, where members would submit thier step by step restoration tips that could be posted for other members to use as direction? I often see the same questions being brought up - but no one having documented exactly how it was done and what the finished results looked like. Some items off the top of my head for the interior section could be How to replace your headliner, how to install a new dash, how to replace the carpet, how to take those damn knobs off the heater controls, etc.

What do you think?

Have you seen:
http://www.nastyz28.com/2gcog/techmain.html

We discussed helping to fill this section out here:
http://www.nastyz28.com/ubb/Forum16/HTML/012486.html

Either articles or links with permission to other articles on other sites about information pertaining to a repair would he put in there.

Replacing your headliner:

Installing a carpet:
http://www.nastyz28.com/2gcog/carpet.html

You can see I get all excited, write a bunch of stuff, then get sidetracked. I think the above stuff is better than nothing, and there's always the message board to fill in the blanks. I was asking for folks to pull info out of here (the board), edit it, and I'd publish it in the appropriate section to "fill in the blanks".

Something like that would turn into this:
http://www.nastyz28.com/2gcog/tech/u14swap.html

Now when I get emails about how to do that - I simply email them the link to that page.

Should have known you would have it, 'cause you're a genius, and I have yet to manage to explore everything the site has to offer.

That is exactly what I'm talking about. I'm assuming that no one has submitted anything for you to add. I like the U14 article, that is exactly what I was thinking. There are a couple I could put together to send to you to see if they are worthy - if you're interested. I'm thinking tilt column rebuild, and maybe seat reupholstering. Both of those I have done before and I have projects setting here ready to go that I could take a sequence of "how to" pictures and put a narrative to.

I think the magazine is an awsome idea too, but I think you will probably have to clone yourself if you want to take on a project like that, it is a helluva lot of work even to produce a small mag, let alone maintaining the website (and some how making a living).
