Flashers R Us

Post by Solar1953 » Thu Aug 13, 2020 10:01 pm

I may have been out of touch for a while, but does anyone know what became of Flashers R Us after the owner passed away? Has the business been picked up by anyone?

I don't think it has. If someone is carrying it forward, they've kept it a secret.

I dont think it has been picked up. The owner passed late last year and then his wife passed early this year. So everything is in limbo with their kids right now as far as I know

Most of the products Dave sold are available from the original manufacture.

What are you looking for?

Actually, I am looking for a couple of Air Brake Reservoirs. He had one that was a nice epoxy casting.

I may be stuck for just trying to turn one out of a wood dowel. It’s that “Football” shape that I’m looking for.

I am in direct contact with the person who makes these here in PA- how many do you need? I believe they are about $15 per. Send me a PM
Is there a market for these?

The Brass headlight housings David used to sell, does anyone know where they - or something very similar can be purchased? I am in need of another one and truth be told, it does not need to be functional. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Danny.
