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.
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.
It bubbled after a few rides when new 2017. Polaris warranty was to scuff it and rattle can it with there color match paint can. I put a wrap on just the tunnel. Removed it and got rid of a couple adds on the wrap. New showed yesterday. I'll get it on today.
nice. I like how you did this. do you have pics of the sides of the tunnel? Because you would have had to of welded that also? As in where the back 1” ish of the tunnel side that you cut off would have to be mated to the remainder of the tunnel
There is a small part on top where the paint gets burned. It is very time consuming getting in-between the cooler and the tunnel cleaning it up. We took the cooler completely off the tunnel tin then riveted back together after welding and pressure testing it. Since the sled had coolant and grime from 2 seasons, cleaning was key to a nice clean and sanitary finished job. No plastic parts,rubber hose and clamps to leak here.
