Good luck on your sales, buyers are paying higher prices now. I have stopped selling on E bay as they have raised their rates to 16% and are charging tax on purchases now. I had top seller rating, etc. Costs much more to buy even in bulk as the buyers have gone nuts boosting prices. Only thing I will do is sell things I no longer have a need for.
You are so right Dave. I usually only buy an older body or chassis that I can't order online. Sometimes if I see some oddball parts I can't get from a vendor I'll wade in but the E-bay thing has gotten way to pricey for sure.
This one was doing good till the paint...... think my rattle can nozzle got a little gummy on the final coat.. Prolly start it out around 12 bucks.It's on a well used Tyco curvehugger chassis with chrome wheels. 80's Pro- Street T/A Tyco wide body
I separate the chassis and body then sell separately. Should get from 14-17 on the CH chassis alone depending on condition. I get about an extra 20% that way which just about covers e bay fees, 16% + that same percentage on the shipping and any tax there is.
Start it at 20 so you get what you want in the end. Something to keep in mind, you still need a box, if printing label at home ink ain't cheap, bubble wrap , time invested listing/packing/dropping off.
You want to hook people up with good deals. That's awesome. Don't burn yourself doing it. By the time you add all that plus the car don't feel bad putting it at 20 or more.
That's why I miss slot car shows. Find stuff cheaper because we don't have to pay a third party.
A really ratty Rat Rod.....Engine on this body was setting higher at the firewall and looked kinda goofy to me .I butchered this one working out a game plan for my next attempt . Setting on a Mega G+ 1.7. I'm getting better but my 60 year old eyes and hands are having trouble complying with my brain at times
I am looking for the aurora model motoring " wide track ". Sometimes called O gauge track pieces . mostly straights but if they made any curved pieces other than 9 inch radius I 'm up for those to. E-bay has some that appear at times but it is usually a bidding war that I miss out on. thx. in advance, Rich
Hmmmmm , I am interested , wondering how hard it would be to add to that, never thought of running a continuous rail on sectioned track. the guy who was gonna cnc rout me a dragstrip seems to have dropped off the face of the earth. It's amazing how fast grandpa can blow off a 4 lane track project for the grandkids and hop to a dragstrip for himself lol
