It had more original parts than the one in the contest though. Does any know what a complete renickel job would cost on one of these ....... and would it increase or decrease the value ?

Quote from: HarrySmith on December 07, 2010, 11:06:55 AMYea, I understand also. I have been in the same boat as a seller and after talking it over with my wife we have decided to not end the auctions early and we did not get as much! Greed or doing the right thing? Tough call
Quote from: Wallphone on December 07, 2010, 12:01:41 PMDoug, When you ask the seller a question there is a box you can mark to hide your email address from the seller. Why anyone would do this and expect to get an answer isn't clear. This might be an option that would benefit "Mr. Helpful" or someone that didn't have something nice to say. Anyway, that's how it was the last time I asked the seller a question. Maybe eBay has done another one of their improvements on it to stop some of the side-deals. Hold the presses, I just checked this feature and that option is GONE. The only option now is whether you want to send the email to your own email address too. It must be to stop the side deals. It seems to me that the seller of the latest contest auction received an offer he couldn't refuse. I wonder if by canceling the auction he got out of paying the "Final Value Fee. I'm sure that eBay would frown on that. Sorry about the "ramble". I spent so much time typing the first half of this posting that I just couldn't see it going to waste. The Other Doug
