Hoodliners.net is currently ON-HOLD due to my stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I AM NOT
ACCEPTING ORDERS FOR HOODLINERS BECAUSE I AM TOO WEAK TO FABRICATE!
I PLAN ON BEATING THIS AND WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT! I WILL ANNOUNCE RIGHT
HERE ON THE HOMEPAGE OF MY WEBSITE WHEN I AM BACK UP AND RUNNING AND
ABLE TO MAKE MY HOODLINERS FOR YOUR CARS!

I CURRENTLY DO NOT HAVE MEDICAL INSURANCE AND AM ASKING FOR HELP WITH
DONATIONS TO HELP ME PAY FOR MEDICAL BILLS AND TREATMENTS VIA THE
GO-FUND-ME WEBSITE. THE LINK CAN BE SEEN HERE:

I ALSO HAVE A PAYPAL DONATE LINK FURTHER DOWN ON THIS HOMEPAGE IF YOU'RE
NOT SURE ABOUT THE GO-FUND-ME SITE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND
WELL-WISHES AS I FIGHT THIS DREADED CANCER!


I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in February 2013 and since then have been on I.V.
chemotherapy treatments. The unfortunate side effects are that I get very weak and tired, dizzy,
nauseous and without any desire or ambition to do anything. I.V. chemotherapy uses chemicals
designed to attack and kill the cancerous cells but unfortunately the chemicals don't just attack
the bad cancer cells, they kill all the good cells too. This is what causes the sickness and weakness.
I don't know if medical science is at the point where they can come up with a chemotherapy that
attacks only the bad cancerous cells while leaving good cells alone, and maintaining effectiveness.

It's been determined that my pancreatic cancer is due to genetics, my mother passed away from
it in early October 2012. Three months later I started showing symptoms of it. After a battery
of tests it was discovered in February 2013 at stage 4, meaning it was also evident in other organs.

I am driven and determined to totally eradicate this cancer from me as I have a young family and many
obligations to them. I do have a positive attitude and have not "shut-down" or withdrawn due to my
diagnosis. Along with my medical treatments I am aware of herbal and organic remedies and am also
trying them. I do take an herbal supplement called "Essiac" as well as others, including vitamins and
minerals. I also take care to keep myself oxygenated and maintaining a higher PH.

Hoodliners.net is a company of one guy, being myself. I fabricate the hoodliners myself by hand,
and it requires a lot of standing and reaching. Due to my cancer condition I can't stand for very long
periods, which explains why I am on-hold. I do plan on re-starting my business eventually so that
I may be of service to the many car owners who are anxiously awaiting my return!


Update November/December 2013

No change in the pancreatic cancer/tumor size. My doctor/oncologist suggested I go to the
Karmanos Cancer Center in Detroit to begin a clinical trial using other types of treatments.
The doctor at Karmanos and my doctor are friends and both will be in communication as
to how I'll be responding to the clinical trials, the testing of which will start on December 5th, 2013.



Update September 2013

My doctor reviewed the last CAT scan from August 23rd and it seems the tumor is slowly growing again plus it's
starting to spot a bit into my lower left lung. Nothing in the liver though. He had me stop the chemo pills because
they really didn't help despite my positive outlook. All they did was numb-out my fingertips and toes, and dry out
my hands and feet. The doc put me back on an I.V. chemo therapy regimen but it's not as bad as the intensive chemo
I started with back in February. This one is an infusion once a week for three weeks for about an hour and then off
for a week, then repeat. I get a bit sleepy and tired but not to the point I can't function. But I'm not back to 100%!
Just need to wait and see what happens next.


Update July 2013

Still progressing, the next event is another CAT scan in late August to see if the chemo pills are having effect
on the cancerous tumor. I do feel "normal" aside from the tiredness and numbness/tingling in my fingers and
toes. I have been fabricating some of my hoodliners here and there, if you'd like one for your car please either
e-mail me or call me at (734) 637-8596. I can make a few hoodliners, but not a whole bunch like before I got
sick!


Update June 2013

I heard from my doc/oncologist that I am in a partial remission! The cancer is no longer in my lungs or my liver,
and the tumor in my pancreas that was 5 centimeters large (golf ball-sized) is now reduced in half to 2.5 cm!
I am now on chemo pills instead of the I.V. drip bags "cocktail" that I was getting through the port in my upper
right chest. The problem was that I would feel weak and really wiped out after the 6 hours with the chemo and
the weakness would last 7-10 days. I would get somewhat stronger just before I had to go in for another chemo
session which was every 2 weeks. The chemicals used also caused some nausea which was not fun! I have to
take 5 chemo pills every morning and 5 every evening with meals, 500 mg each for a total of 5,000 mg a day!
I have to take them every day for 14 days, then off for a week, then repeat. These pills don't leave me wiped out
like the I.V. bags, but I do have some general weakness. My appetite is back though, but I still lost almost 70
pounds! I'm very positive that the pills will do their job and help eradicate this cancer!


February/March/April/May 2013:


Due to an unforeseen medical issue I am unable to accept orders for hoodliners right now. I am undergoing
I.V. chemotherapy for stage 4 pancreatic cancer and hope to beat it! I've lived a clean life and am fairly
strong so my docs are positive that I'll get through this. As soon as I get the OK from them I'll re-establish
the STORE page so that I can fulfill orders once more. I'm hoping to be back up and running some time in May.

I have every confidence in the doctors and staff of the Cancer Center at the University of Michigan Hospital
in Ann Arbor and Canton, Michigan that they'll bring me to full health and remission!

Glory and praise to Almighty God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who will also bring me through this cancer
and offer me comfort and healing so that I can support my family through the sale of my hoodliners. I'm
a devout Catholic and have every hope and confidence that I'll get through this guided by God!

I am currently "on-hold" because of my stage 4 pancreatic cancer! I changed the STORE page to reflect that,
and it's the reason why you can't place an order just yet. No one else carries the originals and I'm the only
one making hood insulation liners for these models, patterned after the original but made from far better
aircraft firewall insulation material.

I had a CAT scan on Thursday May 9 and I'm waiting the results of what the docs find inside. I'm really
anxious to get my site and store page back up and running so I can help the many, many car owners who
are patiently waiting.

Thanks again, please keep checking my site and hopefully I should be back up and running shortly, depending
on what my doc says.


I am very grateful for all the encouraging e-mails and voicemails I've received! I really look forward to getting back
to you all and being able to fabricate my hoodliners for your cars! Please keep checking back and seeing if the
STORE page is up and running!

I am adding a PayPal DONATE button in order to help pay for my medical and home bill expenses,
since I have no other income than the sale of my hoodliners. Since my hoodliners are on-hold I have
no income. Any little donation will help! If you'd rather not donate that's fine too, your well-wishes
and prayers are appreciated and welcome! I've been receiving very encouraging e-mails and phone
calls from potential customers, total strangers, etc, wishing me well and indicating that they are
praying for me. I appreciate these e-mails and calls, and I am very humbled by them!


Thank you for your understanding and prayers!

PLEASE NOTE: FORD AND LINCOLN-MERCURY HOODLINERS NO LONGER COME
WITH ANY FORD BRAND DECALS! I CAN INCLUDE CUSTOM DECALS BUT NO LONGER
ANY RUNNING HORSES, COBRAS, OVALS OR ANY FORD, LINCOLN-MERCURY
OFFICIAL LOGOS OR DESIGNS. MORE INFO ABOUT THIS ON MY FAQ PAGE.

THE SAME GOES FOR ALL GENERAL MOTORS BRANDS! I CAN INCLUDE CUSTOM
DECALS AND TEXT, BUT NOTHING OFFICIAL FROM FORD OR GM. PLEASE SEE
THE FAQ PAGE - YOU CAN STILL SOURCE A GREAT DECAL ON YOUR OWN FOR
YOUR NEW HOODLINER. MY NEW HOODLINER IS 99.9% OF SOLVING THE
PROBLEM OF REPLACING THE ORIGINAL FAILING STOCK HOODLINER, THE
DECAL IS JUST THE "ICING"!

PLEASE DON'T LET THE FACT THAT I CAN'T PROVIDE A DECAL FOR YOUR
FORD OR GM HOODLINER BE A MAJOR FACTOR IN REPLACING YOUR
UNDERHOOD INSULATION WITH ONE OF MY SUPERIOR AIRCRAFT FIREWALL
INSULATION MATERIAL HOODLINERS!


Stop worrying about how dirty your stock hood insulation is, replace it with a great hoodliner from Hoodliners.net!
Contact us at 734-637-8596 or at tbirddmnd@att.net .


NOW JUST ADDED: C4 Corvette hoodliners!! I do have the dimensions for all the
pieces that go in the sections. To fabricate one large liner would take up way too much material
because that underhood is just too large, and the cost of it would be easily $169.99. Plus there's
the problem of the 2 lights and their respective wiring. Supplying section pieces would still provide
protection and necessary insulation while maintaining a clean underhood appearance.
The section pieces will have the correct curved corners.

Here are the dimensions of the pieces I would send:

2 pieces at 12 x 17 (behind wheel wells)
2 pieces at 12 x 14 (above wheel wells)
1 piece at 36 x 19.5 (center section)
1 piece at 8 x 19.5 (lower center section - a custom decal can be added here with year and trim info!)

Full instructions would come in the box for installing your liner sections.
An custom decal could be placed in the smaller lower center section, with something interesting as such as:
year, model, trim, any saying or lettering you want. Just let me know the color and font/typeface you'd like!
Please keep in mind I cannot use any official GM logos or fonts for this custom decal.

Pricing for all pieces would be $74.99, quite a bit less than the $169.99 for one large piece. I would much
rather fabricate section pieces than one large piece, making installation easier for the car owner as well,
while keeping the cost down.

Yes, C4 hoodliners are now available! PLEASE NOTE: these C4 Corvette hood liner sections will work for
the 1985 to 1996 C4 Corvette. I am working on a full one-piece liner for the 1984 C4 Corvette which is
a different underhood shaping from the rest of the C4 Corvettes. Here below is an image of the 6 hoodliner
sections I can offer for the 1985 to 1996 Corvette C4:


IF YOU'D LIKE ONE OF MY C4 CORVETTE HOODLINERS: I have placed them in the new CORVETTE
section of the STORE page. Remember these C4 liners are for the 6 sections ONLY! If you have any questions,
please contact me at (734) 637-8596 or send me an e-mail at tbirddmnd@att.net ! THANKS!!!
