Thats pretty much exactly what i was looking for ...
Your ideas are very good but major amount of research is required to execute them - if i had the info i could make it work and look great - thanks alot for that.
Also I like the specs idea... i will do that.
Dead links is a good idea... just have to think of a way to record them and send them back to me at HQ...
I'm dubious about the idea to let people enter their own and delete some... as it makes updating the DB harder... I could split it though so private links are in own db and mine are in another.... but they all look like they are in the same.
One idea i had is a universal problem matrix. Being ... my CJ7 1984 has rust in exactly the same places as most other Cj7's of that year, all have their faults that are the same from rig to rig... a buyer of jeeps might like to know what to look for - but the only thing is that they would prolly buy the rig before they found/got my software !
In a way the removing links thing from the db is not such a problem - as the value of the software is that its OFFLINE, a client you use at work in the car... on holiday when the wife isn't watching... to figure out your research plans to find the bits you want.
It wouldn't go into detail regarding parts though just general ... www.alpine1.com
- Audio gear for the masses for example.
As far as categories go ... Im creating them on the fly... but are busted down in to major sections ... lights, steering, suspension, blah blah... any pne out there who has done their own little lists at home - i'de be very greatful for your lists to see what i've missed... as im in the middle of alot of things and its hard to tell whats missing.
Cheers keep em coming...
I have a buddy who lives in Hoboken !
