I bought a used MSDS Y from Bob Birk. Thing arrived like one of those ACME boxes in the old Warner Bros. cartoons. Anyway, I had a short delay in getting the money order purchased and sent, and I told him as much. He said "no problem" and then he shipped the thing anyway, before I even had a chance to get the check in the mail, so the pipe and my check passed each other in the mail. And oh yeah, the part arrived well-packed and in the exact condition he described. Better, even.

Definitely A+ and a straight up guy, in my experience.

----------------------

On another note:

This is probably too petty to name names, so I won't, but I think it's instructive.

The "incident" was that the seller and I had made a deal on an item. Before we "shook" on it, I asked if it would be OK if I waited a couple of weeks so I could put it on the next months credit card bill. He said, "sure, no problem."

Two weeks later, as promised, I delivered the money via Paypal, only to have it returned with the note that he had sold the item out from under me without so much as a "how ya doin?"

Now, the good news is that he was honest with my money. The bad news is he didn't hold up his end of the bargain, and that's a breach of integrity (i.e., really not cool, in my world). His "word" means about nothing to me, now, even if I did get my money back.

I relate this story only as an example of what I consider bad behavior. If you are a seller, I think you need to be aware that there's more to a "good" sale than everyone walking away with the right amount of money. If I shake on a $20 deal with you, I expect to get $20 even if somebody else offers me $30 the next day.

Oh yeah, SVT Pete! I ordered SS brake hoses from him. Well, I PM'd him and we had the paypal done in about an hour. That was Wednesday: I had them at my door on Friday! USPS Priority mail (he was covering shipping, his choice) and prompt action by Pete worked out great for me.

Optomized TB also for the Mystique but it will go in the SVT eventualy

Don't know if he's even still around but he helped organize a group buy for a friend of his that went badly for me and took over a year to resolve.

Here are my three:

Elky...A+
Mesh GB. Very friendly and easy to work with!

99RedSVT...A+
Organized the Ebrake and Shift boot GB with Redline.
Paul took a great deal of time to make sure that the product was quality. Also, he took the time to write up a how-to with pictures (OK, so I took the pictures ). When there was a problem he wrote to Redline and kept on top of things.

AJUSA...A+
Great people to do business with. There was a mix up on my first order, my plug wires ended up in Plano, TX (suppliers fault). When I reordered they were extra careful to make sure I got them, they arrived within three days.
