sorry for this rant guys but im really pi/.,;ed with member dorian67, as most of you know i make and ship the jem custom fender, (shameless link:redfaced:) http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...669354767&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK:MESELX:IT
now this guy contacted me through the forum asking me to send him a fender kit, so i did what i usualy do when i get a request through this forum, emailed him some pics, info and prices, he then got back to me asking me to provide a ship quote, did that, he came back to me again and said he would like to procceed with the order, asked for my paypal detailes and said he would send the funds in a couple of days , and would i get started on the kit, so i did, mistake!!!, now i know it might not seem much to some of you guys, but each one of thease kits are made to order, were only a small family outfit and put a lot of time and effort into this, but what i dont understand is why! any way rant over, thanks for listening:-\

Sorry to hear Jem but I've got to agree with Joe... especially when the member has been here less then 2 months and has 1 post.

If they don't have a solid rep on our board then wait till money is in the bank. Hopefully you can make it work with another 9 owner and you are not out anything.

To me there is an agreement made when I order something custom from someone and they begin work on it. Of course all people are different but come on. You may need to start taking deposits before you start. Maybe 50% or more for them to commit to it. If they back out then you deduct your time and material from the deposit and refund the remainder if any. I am so sorry, its tough enough to get a business going to loose money on stuff like this.

Nothing wrong having one in stock, that way now if someone does order one it could be shipped out right away!!!BE POSITIVE, money well spent in your own company!!!

Sorry to hear Jem! That sucks for sure! I can only hope you dont have to hang onto if for to long to recoup you $$ .... Its sad when you trust someone's word and they fall thru..!! Chalk it up as lesson learned (an expensive one) but keep the faith in the rest of us that have been here, cause its a great forum with GREAT trust worthy people!! :bigthumbsup:

i usually get payment up front for the fenders, but this guy sounded so sincere i just got on with it, im not moaning about the money, or even the time realy, its just the fact i trusted this guy and he f/., d me over, the fender in question has already gone out to another customer, but like i said why do people bother!!

:agree: I order a couple of hundred dollars of wiring supplies and spend about 12 hours making up harnesses so they are ready to ship. I think it is always good to have it in stock so it can be shipped ASAP. I think Craigs list is way worse by the way.
