    Sleeper MX83 build

    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.

    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.

    I appreciate it, thank you. I messaged him through Instagram on December 12th, and emailed him December 19th. No response to either.

    I sent him a message i will let you know if i get anything back, at least this way you will know please note if he is orthodox he might be celebrating his new years now and that is the most popular religion in Russia.

    Chris, it's the new slang that millennials use to disparage baby boomers. Ok. He said November 28th was when my order would be done. I waited two to three weeks before messaging him on Instagram and by email. Had my Russian friend call him. Left a message and still no response. Even if he told me he would be shipping my stuff a month from now I wouldn't mind. But no communication period isn't cool.

    Hi,, ROBBAPHENT. My Wife and I were wondering what this means we Keep seeing and hearing it from the younger crowd “OK Boomer”. Is this related to the OU Sooners? I’m am personally not A fan as I like Gordon live in the Great Republic of Texas but it seems strange that an Ozzy like yourself would follow American College Football. Anyway it was nice speaking to you again after a while. Give the wife and kiddos our love, - Chris

    Ok Boomer. @BoristheCat i ordered these Mid September and it took 12 weeks for them to manufacture (he advised me this at the start) i was provided tracking number it spent about 2 weeks at Mosco customs and from there it was straight forward. i got the items just before XMAS. i ordered my JZX81 items just before XMAS he had them made and ready to be shipped with tracking number last week however have spent a week at the post office.

    This is a damn shame.. The parts looked promising and I wanted to be optimistic when I first heard about them.. I'm glad I didn't order anything yet.

    So, you condone fly by night suppliers, who scam some people out of their hard earned money. Typical aussie, don't give a fuck about anyone else, as long as he get's his shit. Wonder how much your scamming the local blokes for this Russian shit?
