impressed with the relevance of most of sites although there are a few
possible ones and one good one. I asked for link submission pages but

Hi Tox

You are going in the right direction in most cases.
Yes, possible
No but this page might be good: - I could see a metal
sculptor using us.
A little off track and UK based but possible.
This is farily good.
Parent site is possible.
I can't see why their visitors would order customer parts.
This is good.

Regards, swisscheese
