Here's one little sample of why it takes SO long to restock it IF we run completely out. Take the bed moldings for instance. Once we get our 15-17 hundred pounds of aluminum coils in, first we have to run several coils though the blanking dies. After stamping the first 450 blanks for the right side,we stop to flip the aluminum over so we can cut the 450 blanks for the left hand side. OH' and that's just for the short beds. Then we have to do the same for the long beds. This makes the blanks that will then run through the roll form machine to make each bed molding. After all of this, each piece runs through the roll form machine, then has to be stacked somewhere until the have ALL been roll formed. Next we take each molding again and form the SQUARE end that goes to the front end of the bed, then take the right's and form the end on them, change to other dies that stamp the rear end of all the left moldings. That's when they get stacked into the crate going to Florida.
Not counting the rest of the moldings, but EACH bed molding has to be handled 19 times before it's a completely finished molding ready to install on the truck. And that doesn't count the handling that the anodizer has to do while they are in his possession.
This is why we try NOT to run out. Carolina Classics F-100s is the ONLY manufacturer and supplier of these high quality Bright moldings. So we can have a 100 sets in stock at the beginning of the week in the Spring or Fall, and when other dealers as well as ourselves are trying to get ready for the Spring or Fall shows, after they send in orders for the quantity that they need, we can be out of stock by the end of that week.
PLUS we also use some of this aluminum to make molding kits for the 1961-67 FORD Econoline Vans and Trucks. You can get to these with the information below.
