Thank you for all the advice! Very helpful.

I can now do a search for "brake lines" and not have to read through the hundreds of posts talking about "brake pads" and "fuel lines" to find the one I need.

Default Project Valuation

My recently departed friend has left his widow with an RV6 project to be disposed of. Looks like that job has fallen to me. Is there anyone that can help me figure out how to value and sell the project? I speak RV and am pretty familiar with this project. Any brokers or ideas on how to market would be appreciated. Please email Thanks,Rick.

Couldn?t figure out how to start a new thread!

Default Chrome Search Site extension

Pardon the thread necro here...

TL;DR - if you use Google's <search terms> method for searching, and Chrome is your browser of choice, this will save you a few keystrokes.

Recently, I've run across a Chrome extension "Search the current site" which will search, using one of a few configurable search engines, the current website you are on. Couple this with the ability to assign a hot-key combination to the extension, you can invoke said searching without your hands having to leave the keyboard.

Let's assume you are perusing the good ship VAF here - using the extension, you can search for
"brake lines"
... 'and not have to read through the hundreds of posts talking about "brake pads" and "fuel lines" '

mogas -"fuel injection"
to get threads with mogas and not containing the phrase 'fuel injection'.

It doesn't save a _ton_ of time, but I started getting annoyed having to type "..." all the time.

Default Search Does Not Work For me anymore

If I go to classifieds and retype a visible listing or type RV-8 I get that there are no results. Huh?

I don't have much luck trying to search stuff either.

There is an issue with the old (circa 2005) version of vBulletin being used with the newer back-end database. There are plans to update to the latest version of vBulletin.
