How much is scrap Ti worth?
Google says $15 to $30/lb.

FWIW, this guy's last 'project' was re-habbing a Mississippi Schwinn he found on the street, which ended up with him breaking the frame, then spending $150 for a framebuilder to repair his $200 bike. Oh, he also makes Youtube videos where he finds classic cars parked on the streets of NYC, then makes videos of them without asking permission from the car owners. I predict that his career will end poorly...

1. you don't need permission to film a car parked on a public street, especially in the manner he is doing so.
2. Bike positive stories and posts on a car forum are a good thing for us, don't gatekeep.

I laughed when I read that he "noticed a few weeks ago that someone had tried to steal the bike", so after a failed attempt to find the owner, he "ended up liberating the bike myself". Yeah, that makes it alright.

As long as the plates aren't visible, I don't see a problem.

I never understood that concern. Lots of folks blur their plates when posting to the VW forum I'm on. Anyone on the road can see your plates, what difference does it make if they see them on the web too?

I guess the thinking is that if you post the plate info on the Information Superhighway, the billions of Netizens who are surfing the InfoSuperHwy will be able use nefarious methods to find out who you are and where your car is parked.

Complications will ensue.

You don't? You've never seen an irate person yelling "DAFUQ YOU DOIN' WITH MY CAR????".
It's not like I'm physically touching it when I take a photo of it.

If it's an Amish car... go with me on this... you might be offending the owner by taking a graven image of said vehicle.

It's certainly something to consider.

Next to the Daguerreotype, the tintype is the most blasphemous type.

I live near Amish country. I can double check that next time my wife and I take a Sunday drive to Lancaster County to gawk at the Amish.

That's true. In Pennsylvania Dutch, it comes out as "Picture, doncha why take a, longer last it'll."
See, now ya went and confused me, or the Pennsylvania Dutch went and confused me, or...or...or...

I don't know, now I'm all mixed up.
