    while the outside looks like crap, i have noticed he uses wood on the inside to brace it and i have to say that is great from a shipping prospective.

    How do you resurrect a thread on JZXProject? With a mothafuckin JZ that's how. I started to post how the 4M died. And it was time for the third head gasket, blah blah blah. But ya'll know better. JZS155 VVTi 2JZ-GE. Searching on the internet, toymods would lead you to believe this was a normal ass engine you find every day. But it looks like the first production VVTi motor. Which is convenient because non-dbw and map. And the ECU is meant to be inside the car. Also that manifold is wild.

    Can't help it lol. The wheels were bought after my Russian frp fiasco. In other news, I got the Lexus running today after the full teardown and rebuild. Now I can focus on the cressida again

    Ghosted right after paid. Surprisingly he gave me a tracking number and came in 2 weeks but came packaged like shit. You can see the fender exposed on the bottom. Luckily it wasn't broken but was pretty embarrassing walking out of the post office with this Lol.

    So i herd back from him and got my tracking number and so on so my 2nd order of parts is coming. I advised him of this thread to say make contract with you as i did not know your insta/facebook. i suggest maybe you contact him and just simply start threatening him with posting all this up around social media. i have a tourerv.ru account (Russian JZX forum) i might be able to get you on there and start advising russians that he is not helpful, they have a whole thread on bad traders so are open to hearing bad situations.

    Yep. I really don't want to go to all the effort of contacting the Russian embassy to try and get my money back. Might not be worth all the headache to put an investigation together

    I don't know if it was in Jordan's feed, or one of the fb groups, or on replies to their insta posts but its the same thing I've heard round and round. Business plan of: Super fast response for purchase, ghost once paid.

    Contact Shockworks and see if Chris will provide, he built JZX81 Strut's off a stock car and took all the measurements to produce there off the shelf kit. he might not help but no harm in asking.

    Yep, let my blunders educate people. That's the only good that can come out of this

    More like big plans by the russki, but not enough spine to follow through, and not enough honesty to refund orders when things get backed up. Not as easy as he thought it would be, hence the quality going to shit. Or too much work to do things right on a timely manner. Probably has already spent the money, so can't refund, or it was taken by PayPal to refund those who paid with a normal, not friends & family type payment. A lot of lessons here on how not to purchase things on the internet...........

    Thanks Zach. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's the conundrum he's in. He did get a bunch of orders placed from people on this site and I'd assume elsewhere, likely his Instagram and Facebook. I just wish he'd communicate more. I'll likely order an OEM hood and fenders any day now. Not interested in busting my ass in the paint booth on the FPR Russian stuff only to have the gelcoat fall apart later. OEM bodywork > everything else

    those 6-piston calipers look sooo good! Glad your build is still progressing. You can get a good 1"-1.5" of more front fender clearance on the factory metal fenders with a roll/pull. @AcidTrip was telling me it's almost better to just stick with factory fenders because the "+50mm" front fenders a lot of these companies sell hardly give much more clearance than what can be achieved on a factory fender. Then you have to deal with fiberglass which doesn't like any sort of rubbing/flexing

    Sad to read about all of the negative experiences. I had high hopes for these Russians. I wouldn't be surprised if their reach was more successful than they anticipated and order qty exceeded far more than their capable output. Companies start small and seek social media to extend their reach, but social media is a funnel and you go from 1-2 orders to 50-100 with one good post. Any normal up and coming company is not prepared for this. A lot of orders end up taking too long to complete or get missed entirely. Customers get ripped while it may not necessarily be the company's intentions. Bad reviews start surfacing. Orders stop flowing. Bad reputation hangs around. Company fails. Obviously this may be a bit exaggerated, but not totally off path. Fingers crossed you eventually get your product Casey.

    Ah, that makes sense. Well, I talked to my bank and Paypal. Neither can help me get my money back. Followed Gordo's advice and found a jzx81 hood and fenders on BidJDM for a little over a grand shipped to my door. If I had known about that service before I ordered, I wouldn't have even considered buying from this guy. Might buy the OEM hood and fenders and then try and sell this FRP stuff later, if I ever get it.

    I have JZX81 mark 2, was going to mould the stock hood because by doing so i could modify the top skin to suit any vents i wanted when i wanted. e.g DMAX Style vent, Freedom style Vent, BN Sports Vent, Msports twin vent. just mix and match styles. I dont do much Cressida stuff anymore as i was always spending time doing stuff for a car i dont have, so i can to borrow cars to trail fit and then i would make an item and i could not use it on my own car so i would have to then try and sell it to then get examples of it. just a head ache

    Robaphent, you're just thinking about molding a stock mx83 hood? Why go to all the trouble, just to save weight? I would keep my stock hood, but it doesn't work with the jzx81 lights and grill, hence why I ordered from him.

    only thing that sucks for me right now is im about to leave out of town for work again and the kit hasnt shown up and i gotta worry about it getting put away while im not here

    I need to buy a bonnet from him, but in saying that i do have a bonnet here i could mold i'm just getting lazy in regards to producing a mould and spending huge amount of money for something i could buy.

    Lol seriously... I will admit, I asked him for a jzx81 hood, which he only produced once quite a while ago. He's produced lots of the fenders though. It's obvious he's producing his products not in the order the orders were placed. Looks like all I can do is wait 🙁

    I bet if you had a new person message him to place a new order he would reply very quickly 😂

    I talked to a coworker who makes his own body panels for his oval track car. He used to work for bayliner making fiberglass boat hulls. He said the reason most gelcoat is shit on fenders is because people don't deposit fiberglass bits into the gelcoat with a chopper gun. A middle of the road pneumatic chopper gun is 400 bucks. I figure as long as the general shape of the hood and fenders is good and everything lines up, maybe I can remove or chip off the crappy gelcoat and redo it with a chopper gun. Hell of a lot of work just to make a kit work without it falling apart.

    I deal with international shipping at work and large stuff going through customs around the holidays always takes forever. Occasionally it slips right through, but often it takes several weeks and there is almost no good way to track it until it comes out the other side.. Not trying to play devils advocate, just wondering if you guys are dealing with some of that. If they are not responding though and giving the run-around, then that's another issue.
