    Make the top pic into a 41mm center cap at a reasonable price.
    With a weak US President... I mean US Dollar, buying parts from Europe is very expensive for cheap Fiat drivers.

    Yes Henk, that would be super MAGA if you can make them into center caps for CD31 and CD39. You can charge whatever you want since my income tax was cut earlier this year and my take home pay is a lot bigger than when Odumbo was in the office. I like to call it capitalism.

    Also in the appropriate size as replacements for the hood/body emblems. Perhaps something like in the second pic, next to that huge 10" key. :eek:

    Not sure if you're joking or watching too much CNN but the dollar is far from weak.
    Almost even with Euro so you want to buy now..:)
    $1.13usd = 1 Euro so NOW is the time if you're a thrifty shopper.
    UK Sterling has always been tough for us but even that is better with $1.27usd = 1UK sterling.
    Better is better.:cool:

    CNN, MSNBC. He was looking for an opportunity to bash Trump. Another liberal with TDS.

    Wow didn't know the Euro had dropped so much. iIalso didn't know CNN was a news station. I think the last time I seen a CNN show was in '01. I stopped looking for parts anywhere other then the UK, a long while ago when the Euro was roughly 80% up on the dollar. I am aware the pound has been up for several years now but thought the Euro was still stronger, so don't even bother checking the current exchange. I typically buy from the UK. Even though thats still less then Ideal. And until recently at more palatable roughly 30% increase. I guess I'm stuck in the days when the dollar was = to like 1.60£

    I'm sorry to Henk that your trying to bring something nice to a group that should supercede our differences. And it has taken a poor turn.

    The Xweb guidelines have long asked members to avoid bringing up politics, religion, spark plugs and oil viscosity.

    I think the rap artist Magno said it best, or rapped it best I suppose, with his 2007 musical opus titled "Don't start no sh1t, won't be no sh1t." Not really my taste musically, but you can't argue with the man's logic.

    Redundant statement Jimmy; spark plugs and oil viscosity ARE politics and religion. :p


    On the general topic of currency rates and purchasing from foreign countries (completely non-political/non-religious). I find it interesting that parts for older foreign vehicles can be purchased from European sources and shipped here for about half the total cost than from US sources. I understand that a lot of it is due to our internal shipping cost, which in itself is much greater than that of other countries. Not to mention it can take longer for a letter to get from the next state than to get a large package from Europe. But there must be more to it than postal rates.

    Ok I see just an oversight.
    But backwards to me in fact. I seldom buy from the UK primarily due to the high cost with the exchange rate for a very long time.
    GBP has not been a better value for us over the Euro.

    So the US dollar was weak when your boy Obozo was in the office, but lets bash Trump anyway. Gotta love libs.

    Ciao amici,

    Thank you for your posts
    Yes, the dollar is very weak regarding the Euro
    Euro 1 is US Dollar 1,13 the best valuta for the USA since many years so buying parts in Europe is much cheaper than years before
    But we are all worried about your president Trump and his performance...…
    Petrol prices in Europe are matched to the barrel that are paid in US Dollars so petrol prices go up to Euro 6,50 for a gallon

    But our X 1/9 keeps us smiling and brings extra joy in our lives, isnt't it?

    Saluti,

    Henk Martens

    I find it amusing that people still believe that whomever happens to occupy the Oval Office at any given moment has anything to do with the exchange rate, the price of oil, or just about anything economically.

    But those shameless, scumbag lowlife politicians always want to take the credit for when things are "good"....if so, then they gotta own the blame when things are "bad"

    Very sharp. I'd consider using these as hood/trunk badges.

    Greg, the "Etsy" site is quite interesting. I've never heard of it. Have you made purchases through it? Any feedback on the service, shipping, etc? Thanks.
