He hasn't been online for a week now.... Anyone know him personally ? facebook or wtv ?
I'm in no rush either, but for the others that want, a SitRep on this would be nice.

I'm not getting a good feeling about this. :( No product. No response here. No PM reply. Wallet is lighter. :huh: What to do? :?:

He has a facebook page for his pitbull fabrication company, there is a number, can someone closer than me or state-side try and call to see if he's still alive ?
I think we are all starting to get worried about him. Parts come after but not giving a sign of life is more of a concern...

i sent the paypal transmittal on 12/12/2012 and i watch for my parts to arrive every day.

Guys, i apologize. I have had major turmoil recently. I had theft, fired my two employees and was in a vehicle accident, all within the last five weeks! I have not forgotten anyone. I will send out all the orders and will refund those that want it. I have all the items and more, just haven't had the time to send it out or even get on the computer.

I have been putting in up to 19 hour days to keep my business afloat and to get my backlog completed. I have seriously jeopordized my name here and with a $75k contract I signed with our local municipality.

I apologize again.

Paul

Apology accepted. We just wish you would have spent a minute to let us know sooner. I hope you can work through your problems. Just keep us in the loop and all's well. Good luck, I know what it's like to have a mountain of crap fall on you through no fault of your own.

Wow! Apology accepted and understood. Hope you get a chance to breath soon. Hate it when everything happens at once like that. I'm glad you're OK. But you Won't be OK if you keep up that pace! Do what you can to back off, just a little. Don't want to vapor lock or something! Your health is more important than stuff. Let me know if you need anything else. I know you'll send out when you can. Take care.

Ouch, start of 2013 for a lot of people is harsh. :?
Topdown and snowfish wrote it for me. I share the same opinions.

Thanks for the update !

No need to fret, old man.
:lol:

I'm not in it for a refund, just one passenger side for our old '94 GA.
If you lost my address, let me know and I'll give it to you again.

There are probably a few people ahead of me as I was kinda late to order.

Best from the sandbox below you.

Is there no members nearby who can take control of the parts and get them out the door even if I have to pay twice for shipping? This is getting pretty old for a long time member who had a very good rep until now.

I think we all wish Paul well but enough is enough. Time to do what's needed. He hasn't been back since his apology. I'd go pay a visit but it's 12 hours and a border crossing each way.

Do you mean these sort of things?

The oem ones have plastic brackets on them, the only mountingvhardware is a pair of slip over screw fittings on each vent

Yes, those are the ones. I saw your thread a couple months back. You guys just got them, after like a year of non-sense from your supplier right ?

They are seriously awesome looking pieces man :mrgreen:
If I don't get any news in June, *knocks on wood*, I'll ask for a refund and get those. Any plans for another batch ?

4 months and a week since i transmitted funds.

if the parts have been received, what's the big deal with mailing them out?

the last time the seller logged into teamswift was a month and 16 days ago.

I stopped by my local Suzuki Dealer These are still available.If you have a Suzuki Dealer around you i would suggest ordering them yourself if you can't get them from here.They did say they would take 3 weeks to get and i think they are around 45.00 each.

Paul said he had a discount, down to 40$ if i remember correctly. With the shipping it comes up to the same price on my side then .... Might get em faster at this rate :?

The number for his workplace is up there in this page of thread, anyone willing to give a call ?

Any chance someone has the parts number ?
My dealer here can't find them. I even tried the parts number that we can see on a picture posted on page 1 with no results on his end...

Thanks !
