Hey Marc, any chance we can set up an "Aftermarket Forum" so we can quickly access all of the vendors out there making stuff for the SSR's? I would love to quickly go to a vendor and order what I want from this site instead of bouncing all over the web searching for stuff. A lot of our members make stuff and a lot of other vendors make good things too!

Yea, a lot of the sights you go to that say the have SSR parts don't realy have them or you have to search by item to see if they have anything. I love the GM site that shows a two inch receiver for SSR's. :cool :cool

Time Saver For Sure

This is a great idea; :agree
All of my SSR shopping is done via the Internet due to my location.
This would save time for sure.
On the other hand its a long winter and booting around the WWW does eat up the long winter. While we in the northern Americas wax and re wax and wax and rewax a time saver seems redundant :nopity
Still only December

Do you see this as a section for vendors to offer parts or more as a section to discuss doing aftermarket modifications like adding a supercharger?

I am working on getting some of the vendors from Corvetteforum to offer some deals here on SSRfanatic. We could use a section like this to put GPs and product info from supporting vendors in one central location.

Should we use it to discuss things like putting a supercharger on or as a place for our vendors to offer good deals on a supercharger?

I just want to be sure I understand what it is you are asking for.

My thoughts would be to use it as a marketplace to where the products could be offered. The discussions could stay on the main forum. If you have too much discussion on the market area it would make things harder to find. Something like a product and vendor listing with minimal discussion would be easiest to search through.

That's what I was thinking, as well. We already have ample room for discussion.

Troy and Marc,
Another point to ponder. Since you do have a non-commercial posting policy maybe you could limit who and how things get posted. For instance if a member posts that he bought a whatchamacallit from XYZ Company and they treated him good a website link or address could be posted. Word of mouth referrals are the best form of advertising. General suppliers such as Chevymall or GMPartsdirect could be listed somehow.
I do feel however that a post that says "I sell such and such and you can buy from me" should be strongly controlled. You don't want this to become an advertising nightmare with vendors essentially getting free advertising. There are some ads that come up every so often in the forum like that.
Maybe limiting the posting to "supporting members" or "supporting vendors" only would help. Other thoughts??????
Although the idea of an aftermarket forum is great, I for one don't want to see pages of ads from people who don't contribute in other ways.

Aftermarket

Ding - I think that was the idea - put 'em all in one forum and, if you don't want to see them - they're not staring at you in "Technical", "Discussion", etc.
