Re: CF/ Smokinvette post

I did the Cliff Notes version, and went from page 1 to the end. Page 7 is where the fun started after working backward. (Unless I missed something relevant in 2-6 that I didn't look at)

Re: CF/ Smokinvette post

Are those Confirmed made in America

or are they Importing them and saying that they are made in America

Because I am Really Bothered that the American Government would Allow the Communists to Copy an American Companys design and then sell it in the states

To even put one American out of Work let alone Millions

is a Complete Outrage !

Treasonists

Anthony, I must have missed this thread last year so I'm trying to get a handle on it.

Looking at the CF and SV links, it appears maybe that some posts by ARH and Kooks (and possibly others) have been deleted and the CF thread is closed.

These weren't your headers, correct? These are headers made by someone else and you guys were challenging their country or origin?

Have I got any of this right :-?

Re: CF/ Smokinvette post

I think the synopsis was some guy bought various name-brand quality headers from their manufacturers and then ended up selling cheap Chinese knock-offs whose tubing was a precise copy of the original. They claimed they were made in the USA, but other evidence said they were shipped to the USA, not made here. It looks like all the drama has been deleted.

When I read the thread last year, I didn't know there was going to be a test
