I'm looking for a piece of sheet metal (steel or aluminum) to use as a blockoff plate for the heater box in our Grassroots Challenge car. I already have a paper template made up, I just need the metal.

Every dollar we spend on the car (only $2006 allowed) counts, so that's why I'm hoping to find some junk metal (junk doesn't get counted towards the budget).

Does anyone have or know where a junk refridgerator, washing machine, or stove is? I could cut off one of the sides and use that for my material.

Thanks,
-Banning.

Grab a few traffic lights too. No shortage of those.
especially down in deleware- you guys have like 15 of them hanging from a little wire across a 2 land road.

consider it a public service- your lightning the line up so it doesnt snap and then they will loose all of them :usa:

Thanks guys, but I'm already planing on getting a piece from Huber on Saturday.

Perhaps I could use a spare piece of sheetmetal though in case I need to patch something else on the car... :wink:

Can you bring it to the next meet?

I'm gonna try and make it to Fudds on Sunday, but I'm not 100% sure if that's gonna happen. With all the travel and club/racing stuff going on lately I've gotten behind on a lot of other stuff.

I will be crossing the DMB Saturday morning and coming back around noon. Perhaps we can get together then?

I'll PM you my cell phone #.
