Hey Guys, So everyone knows I have been working on this and i will have a bigger update for everyone very VERY soon, Hopefully we have enough people interested to make it a happen,

if your interested message me and let me know how many sets and the year or your car, Put Reproduction Body Moldings as the title,

This way i can have a better idea of who wants them and if it makes sense to move forward, Also they will be made to order not something stocked like a store, so figuring out a estimate on materials that will be needed is also helpful with knowing the final price they will cost,

Here is a pic ;)

Hey guys, i have messaged everyone that was interested on the list, as well as those who contacted direct, some responded some didn't some i still have no idea weather they are in or not but it is what it is... BUT WE ARE MOVING FORWARD WITH THE MOLDINGS and have started to collect deposits,

i must say the warnings a few of the OG's gave me about the community regarding group buys and ppl saying they want something then come time to pay and they vanish lol..., or even to get some ppl to respond and communicate in a timely manner definitely is challenging,

so here is were we are at, those of you that responded and provided deposits thank you, those of you that responded but never paid the deposits yet i will give you a certain amount of time if i dont hear back then remove you from the list, unless you make arrangements,

why? well we cant wait forever and materials need to be ordered to make the required amount of sets, so if a few ppl are going to take to long its easier to remove them from the list to not delay others, i think i have been very fair with everyone in terms of communication and answered all questions ppl had,

So here is the straight goods just like previous projects i have done with the community,
if you paid the deposit you will get a set,
if you dont pay the deposit by the cut off date you wont get a set,
i will only make what ppl order, if you message me after wanting a set sorry you missed out...

Many of you have been really supportive and appreciate my commitment to the community and our cars and to those thank you, But being one guy doing everything from manufacturing to customer service i am going to heavily need to think about if i am going to do other projects like this, As I have already done a few projects already but this one has been the most challenging in terms of everything...

I have finished every other project i started so im not going to stop now, So there it is ppl i am not going to chase anyone... you want a set great, you dont thats ok just let me know, if you are late to the dance well then you might not get the girl, Hopefully now everyone has a clear understanding so no surprises later,

Just got off the phone with Billy, very nice guy, and obvious supra enthusiast. I was on the fence for a while about buying these, and since I haven't been the beneficiary of any other of his group buys, I reached out for information. Thanks for reaching out, makes me feel a lot better about sending money to someone I've never met.

Paypal deposit in route.

looking forward to more parts for the parts stash!
Thnx bro was a pleasure :) :)

replied to your message, Also regarding Phil's post, i think he needs to think before he types because if i air what happened he might learn a lesson, sometimes ppl that want to keep face should keep there mouth shut and not talk nonsense or present things in a way that they try to put someone in a negative light, as every action has a reaction and is easy to say something now but not factor the later... everyone that ordered moldings will get them just like every other project i have done, its not like im going to do something stupid like for example burn down my my place of business for insurance money and then tell ppl sorry your out of luck your moldings are gone lol...

Phil has been a good member and valued resource here for well over a decade. So enough with the mud slinging, let's hear an update on the mouldings.
i didnt sling anything first he was the one that opened his mouth i just defended myself, And if he has a issue then he can come talk to me like a man in person, so are you implying im not a good member or a valued resource? ppl much like Phil should not talk unless they know the facts, someone on a forum posting and dealing with someone when it come to business and $$$ are not one in the same, I really dont care what ppl think or assume i think my track record speaks for itself, So dont imply shit about me that isnt true, so to answer your question the materials have been ordered just delayed due to the Texas freeze that has effected many industries with raw materials, once in hand i will update, So if anyone has any questions feel free to contact me direct since otherwise updates will be posted when there is any, i did all the work and i put up all the money, and no Phil will not be collecting money and receiving all the moldings were i hope i get what i put out back because somehow thats logical... should i go on? I dont take ppls shit and i dont like ppl trying to hustle me... i really dont need to do this i can just make stuff for myself and fellow friends, so maybe if some of you prefer dealing with Phil the good member and valued resource go to him for making stuff for our cars, but i guess your going to be waiting a long time, like forever... not into lip service and i can back anything say if need be...

Thanks,
David

Just asking some basic questions here. Same as my private messages to you. I've been extremely cordial. If you have personal stuff going on and need a few days, just say that.

I'm totally interested in this project but would like some information about what I've paid (and will be paying more) for. If you can't provide that, please refund my deposit and I'll figure something else out when it comes time to paint my car.
as i told you refund coming, i have answered your questions and replied to your autobiography messages, you want a list of members, the molding are not specific to here only, ppl have emailed for them, contacted me on FB ect... what are you wanting to know exactly? you want me to post a list of every member and personal names of ppl seriously because you ask? im not going to post ppls personal names? what does it matter if we have orders for 5 or 10? you ordered youll get them, once updates ready ill post? want me to say "update guys no update"? i can only answer questions to which i have answers too... like i really am not getting the point of all this

Billy,

Again I don't want to hear the he said she said crap, my point was Phil has been a member in good standing of this community for many years and to keep that in mind when throwing out comments like 'shop burned down for the insurance money' etc. I didn't make any comments on your standing here, but throwing accusations like that around won't help

Thanks for the update on your situation. I expect to see something more substantial soon.
Then Phil should not accuse me of trying to steal when i have proof he is full of shit, respect is a two way street, so those that dont want accusations then they should not slander others, i am not sure what makes you a authorly on what anyone should hear or not, but if someone is going to lie and think im going to sit here and take it, then have someone talk to me like i need to take there shit... well im not that guy, you dont want to hear it dont listen, what time frame someone has been a member does not mean shit to me, if he doesn't want to get called out then he should stfu and not make up lies to make me look bad... again he started this shit not me, so Phil's word is law and im a liar? yeah im not having that... my suggestion to you is maybe worry about you and not me and Phil and not comment when you dont know the full story... so if he can clear the air then so can I.
