• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

We're trying something a bit different. I built a crude jig to hold the Axys tank and used uhmw and shims to compress the sides of the tank in a bit. I have it sitting up the rafters of my shop. It gets pretty hot up there. So my hope is that over the summer the tank re moulds to the new shape. Failing that I was going to use boiling water to heat the sides while it in the jig and then cool off with cold water.

Watching too ....would be nice to taper the profile to fit natural Stace a bit better ...
I think though that you will need more heat to soften and get it to plastic stage so you can alter the shape and form as it cools so it holds the desired shape ....variable temp heat gun might help ... identify the area related to the change required and the heat beyond the boundary to allow for transition between original shape and modified area ...
Sure that there's some automotive body folks on here with experience that could chime in ....

Maytrix tanks are narrower allowing for better comfort and movement.

I have done lots of plastic molding and yes you are goin to need more heat. A heat gun and patience works best unless you have a portable heat lamp and a large sealable wood box to put it and your tank in or a spare oven so that you don't piss off your wife. Be careful not to stretch the plastic too much as it will get thinner and weaker
