Heads up everyone!
Ricksvt, you PM'ed me with this question, and I have posted an answer for you.... but for the benefit of everyone else, I will answer here as well.
To everyone else with Mystiques, this panel may not fit. I went and searched out a Mystique today and come to find out its panel config. is different from the Contour. I have contacted Doc to see if Rick's observation is right so that I can better inform and update all of you. I will also work with all of you Mystique owners with diff. panels than the one offered to rectify the situation in whichever way is possible whenever Doc contacts me. But just for now, heads up please..... and I sincerely apologize for any disappointment..... I really wish I would have known about this difference sooner, as nothing was said when the group buy was started over on the fordcontour site. I will get back with you all hopefully soon. Once again, I'm sorry about this.

Ok, guys.... here's the verdict.
Doc has informed me that these are Contour only HVAC panels... that they will not work in a Mystique.
I am going to take the heat for this one, as this is a question I should have asked from the start. I always assumed that the only difference between Ford and Mercury emblems was a slightly different body styling... that other aspects had been left the same.
Long story short, if you have a Mystique, the HVAC panel will not work for you. Those of you who prepaid will need to e-mail Doc to see about getting your money back. Once again, I'm sincerely sorry. [Frown]

Ok guys... more news....

First of all, the Indiglo cluster gauges are advertised as working with Contours and Mystiques alike. So yes, the cluster gauges will work.

Secondly, Brad Noon has taken over the HVAC sales and those who have pre-ordered from Doc have had their orders transferred over to Brad. So, if anyone wants to buy the indiglos now, it will have to be through BNMotorsports. The price on the gauges have now gone to 50 plus 9.95 shipping, the HVAC panels are advertised as TBA for price, and their is no package deal listed. I will try and find out from Brad what all is going on and will keep everyone posted.

Milan, you told me that unlike most other group buys, things seem to be running smoothly with this one when I questioned your inquiry about updates.... well, I guess things cant all be perfect. Anyways, let me do some digging this weekend and I will try to let everyone know ASAP what is going on. Thank you all for your patience in this.

Please, don't shoot the messenger. I have received some rather rude and inconsiderate emails from a few of you over something I have no say in. Doc came to us over at fordcontour telling us that he was busy with the indiglos and wouldnt have time at the moment to organize a list, so he asked someone to volunteer to ask people here at contour.org. I happened to be the one to say that I would make a list and hopefully answer a few questions, in the hopes that people over here at contour.org could also benefit. I am really disgusted with this situation too, because Doc did not email or PM me to tell me that things had changed. I found out by visiting the fordcontour website. This digusts me. The week of the 22nd is going to be this week. Why this changeover could not wait a few more days is beyond me. I cannot move Doc's fingers or manipulate his mind to get money or responses out to those of you whom it is owed, although I wish I could. All I can do is email him and relay that information back to you, but that is about all I can do. GreenJellyBean2000, you may want to e-mail Brad about this all and find out if you are still in the group buy, since your name was added to the original list after my first submission.
Mystique owners, PM me if you have problems with Doc, and I will help you try and retrieve your money. You may want to try Brad since the orders were transferred to him. I wish I could guarantee that, but like I said, I cannot control the actions of another but I will help you the best I can.
Because the orders are close to coming in, and because of the mess that has ensued from this, I am officially closing this group buy. If Doc wants to try and sell more of these panels at a discounted price to try and move a few more out, he can deal with everyone face to face. Nobody deserves to be ignored or screwed over, and if this is what is going to happen, then I want no part of it. Those of you who have submitted your names as interested have been put on my list and submitted to Doc before the changeover, so if you have any problems, let me know.

Hey Jeremy,
Just to let you know, I am not upset at all with you. I know **it is goofed up over yonder. So don't think that previous post from me was directed towards you. Anyway, I did however want to ask you, if I alreaady paypaled for the package deal, What will become of that? Seeing as BNM wil take over the selling of just the HVAC gauges? Or am I just one confused little fella?

Thanks for the reply, Desmoquattro... to set things straight, I am not mad at anybody... just very frustrated. The only thing I was trying to accomplish is to lend a helping hand to the very group that has done the same for me. This forum is a great resource from beginner to expert and this was all done by me as a token of my appreciation for the group. I have no intention of getting mad or upset, but at the same time I want to make the effort for what is right to the best of my ability so that everyone benefits.

As per your question, BNM is offering both HVAC panels and gauges on the site unless another change has been made that I am not aware of. There is no pacakage deal advertised, and although I see no reason why the package deals weren't transferred over, I am contacting Brad to verify this. Also, if you have sent payment to Doc for the HVAC panel and are a Mystique owner and want your money back, if contacting Brad or Doc yields no result, please let me know and I will go to bat for you. Orders are still scheduled for shipment on the 22nd, and again I am contacting Brad to verify this. I ask for your patience as I am doing everything I can at the moment. Thank you all for your responses and attitudes.... and I hope to get back with you all soon.

-Jeremy

Sorry that this post is so long, but this is the word as I have it from Brad. Just got this in today so thought I would share.

My letter:

From: "Jeremy Shilling"
To: bnmotorsports@msn.com
Subject: HVAC indiglos

Brad,
I am organizing the group buy on the HVAC indiglo panels and was wondering
the status of everyone's order, as well as any updates you may have.
Everyone is pretty frustrated with the changeover, and the Mystique owners
are wanting to know if there is any kind of refund option available to them
on the HVAC panels because of a recent discovery that the panel will not
work. Also, those of us who pre-paid, should we be expecting our panels
sometime soon? And my final question..... would there be any way to get
ahold of a switch/transformer assembly for the indiglo gauges or do they
only come as a set? Reason being that I would like to try and relocate my
switches outside of the metal panel it was shipped in, but before I cut the
harness and ruin something I would like to make sure that there is a way to
replace it. Please let me know ASAP so that I can get back to the CEG with
the information. Thank you for your time.

-Jeremy

Response:

I have a list of 8 pre-orders I'm supposed to fill that I haven't recieved the names on yet. As far as money back, you/they will have to work with Dominic on that since I had no part in setting that up. The status on the order for everyone is: HVAC's shipped late today, possibly tomorrow. 2-3 days to get here, another day turn around time, then ship from here to customers 2-3 day USPS priority mail.

As far as the switches, they only come in a set as far as I get them. I'm not sure if Dom can get them or not.

I understand your frustration with the change over, but there is little I can do at this time with the little information I've been provided. My suggestion is to talk to Dominic to straighten this out since he's the one you set the deal up with. If he doesn't do anything for you, give all of your information to me and I'll see what I can do for you. Chances are that the group buy was pretty near my wholesale price and I won't be able to do much, but I'll work with ya to make sure we don't lose any customers over the deal. [Wink]

Brad

So if all else fails, from the sound of things Brad will work with us to make sure things are kept straight. Not to say that he wouldn't before, but at least now this makes me feel a little better about the whole situation. Of course, please everyone- communicate with me. I cannot help if I don't know what is going on, so keep me posted as to problems, concerns, etc. and I will see what can be done. Until next time... take care everyone.

-Jeremy

Alright, I have some info for all of us that pre-ordered:

I called Brad a few hours ago and here's the deal: Those of us that pre-payed for the HVAC Indiglo Panels will receive them this Saturday the earliest, and by middle of next week the latest. All of this is pending if Doc transfered your pre-payed orders to Brad. So lets hope that Doc has done this so that there will be no additional problems. As far as the rest of questions, I have no info. Lets see how it all turns out...

Please explain to me what you mean by "is there a list?" I have a list of about 30 people that was put together some time ago which was submitted to Doc by me for this group buy, and is posted in this thread. If you mean a list of tracking numbers or people who got their orders shipped, I have no clue if there is a list or not. Sorry for the confusion.

Sorry guys, I could have helped directly with some of these questions had I known the group buy was happening here and not on FCO. Sorry, I never check this section of the forums out.

Anyway, Dominic got my funds for the HVAC's the day he got them in (Yesterday, Monday the 22nd). Those HVAC's were paid for and set up for shipping to me, but not shipped yet that I know of because Dominic hasn't provided tracking info as of yet. Milan is providing the most correct information I have at the moment.

If you have prepaid, your name will be on a list sent to me by Dominic. I have been compensated for shipping on those units and Dominic also threw in those sets on top of my order as to not eat into my profit margin due to the killer deal you guys scored. I will post the list of prepaid orders when I recieve the names from Dominic (and tracking info when shipped). There's no need to email to check if you're on my list since I have not recieved it yet and no need to email Cardoc since he seems to be unusually busy in the first place. We will handle these orders as being our own and will do everything possible to make things straight once these units are in stock. [Wink]

Anyone only on the interested list, but not prepaid will have to make your claim to Cardoc if you feel you have been wronged. That price can not be honored in any future deals, I'm sorry. I hope you guys can understand. [Wink]

TO ALL THAT PRE-ORDERED:

As I mentioned, if you sent the money to Doc, he will send your unit to Brad, who will then mail it to you. It sounds confusing, but all it's gonna cost us is a few additional days of waiting for them. The only thing that can cause a problem is if Doc misplaced your funds or has not received them. But I honestly don't see this happening.

I emailed Doc yesterday and he responded in the same fashion that you see on here. If you pre-ordered, then your HVAC is on its way to Des Moines as we speak. From there it will be shipped to you.

Using this info, so far the people that I know have pre-ordered are:

I got the SE gauges last night, I hope to get the HVAC's tonight or tomorrow if they make me sign that friggin little slip again... UPS sucks, I've signed a home business release form three times and they still don't leave packages at my house like they're supposed to... Even if the shipper requires a sig, they're supposed to leave it because they have me on file... [Confused] Uhhhhhhh, sorry, got on a rant there...

I will post all shipping confirmation lists and any prepaid information that Dominic will include. Please, don't post any other lists. It will only confuse people. Thanks. [Wink]
