Default Slow Modem

If you have a slow modem (56) can you check my site and see how long it takes to load. I know it will take a bit but I want to make sure it doesnít take a day. Also if you use different browsers and it crashes or doesnít work it would be good to know. Thanks for the help.

No this is not a plug for the site it is far from done but because all the stuff is on my site it is very fast for me.


I keep seeing the new James brown Pontiac Add. I love it.

I"ve actually tried it last nite on a 56 modem... it'* really not that slow... the only thing.. just a suggestion... don't shoot me....I haven't paid up my life insurance yet.. ha ha ha... and I haven't put down to be burried with my car on my will yet... but anywho.. just a suggestion.. I notice that some pages you're working on and are blank with a few lines across it.. maybe I"m a dumb ***.. but if I didn't really notice the little thing on Explorer stopped going on the top.. I would still think it'* still loading the page.. could you just please put something to let people know that the page is empty for now... jsut my 2 cents... you can put me in front of the firing squad now

Got it. Yeah I am still working on it but I am not 100% sure what you mean. I could care less what is said or I would not have asked. LoL it is an open forum. I will change it again but I figured I could get some honest replies.

So you mean while you were waiting for the front page to load it stopped indicating it was loading so you had a blank page? Did you also mean this happened with the store pages? The store is being a pain but I have fixed most of the issues so now I can fix the mess I made in my rage.

Some product prices will change and some other new products are lined up.

As a side note I will finish the CAI for the series 1 after the base site is cleaned up. on the 15th of the month.

It loaded fast for me, but then I have DSL, so most everything is fast. That'* the only way to get decent internet service around here. The site looks great! I really like it. There were no problems with the pages loading up or anything like that.

Great don't try to buy anything by the way because it will not work.
I will offer cheaper items in the future but there is no way a small company like myself can compete with big shops on the mass product front. You know, SC oil things like that would be just too expensive due to shipping costs.

I will have paypal working on the 15th.

Once I have more products I will start paying the crazy amount of money it costs for my credit card processing. No point paying while the site is not working.


once again if you want it ill find it or have it built.

Um, maybe I'm not looking in the right place, but there were no loading problems when I was looking at the product pages. Everything came up fine. The Ram Air Hood for a 92-99 Bonneville is pretty. Does that come in all colors? I am looking in the right place, right? I don't want to feel like a doof again.

Youíre in the right place and that is a GP hood (I just cut it out so the manufacturer would get the idea of how it would look on my site) but that is the exact style that will be available if there is enough interest. Yes you can get any color they donít come colored they come primed ready to be painted. I have one other person interested in a one off custom product but I am waiting on prices. Once again though the site is a Mess, so please let me clean it up and on the 15th it will all be alot clearer. Well I hope it will. LOL
