    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.

    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.

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

    Goddamn it. Looks like I can't do anything but wait and pray

    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.

    Gibbs, when did you order?

    This is shitty. Robaphent, when did you place your order? I placed mine at the end of September last year

    I wonder if it's possible to basically chip off all of his shit gelcoat and redo it somehow. I don't know jack shit about fiberglass, other than it's really messy, sticky and stinky. If I had a set of jzx81 mark ii fenders and a hood to work off of, I'd do it my own fucking self. But if I had said hood and fenders, I wouldn't be in this dumb non-OEM Russian fiberglass predicament now, would I? I'm dreaming of a Christmas miracle where I go back to my house and there's a super high quality set of fenders and hood on my doorstep with no shipping damage. Pretty unlikely though

    Wish I knew that your one buddy wasn't the only one with problems. Oh well, too late now

    Interesting. Looks like a lot of work, but that's super helpful info, thanks gordo. I see myself being a skeptical grouchy old forum member in the future because of crap like this, can't say I blame gordo's pessimistic outlook... probably because he's been around the block with people like this. This shit makes me hate my build that much more. It doesn't motivate me to continue on, that's for sure.

    Yeah. The guy asked me to send money to friends and family. I thought nothing of it, I just figured I would help him dodge the PayPal fees. In doing so, it turns out I sacrificed my ability to file a claim through PayPal. I might ask my bank to dispute the transaction since my bank account is linked to my PayPal. I was shipped a really shitty light for my SC400 through ebay, but that was a 100 dollar loss, not a $1050 loss. Some things I can let go, but not this. I'll keep fighting it, but who knows how well it will go. I am generally not comfortable with asking for money from family or friends, let alone strangers, so although I appreciate it, I wouldn't accept it.

    Somebody throw this guy in dead weight or ban his ass. Paid 1100 for a hood and fenders. He said it would be done and shipped by November 28th. I tried messaging him by email and via Instagram where he sells. No response over the last several weeks. Now I have to deal with the whole PayPal dispute process to get my money back. Yes, I'm pissed.

    If my car is sitting outside, I use those dry-z-air things. They do a really good job of keeping mildew and mold out. Probably won't pull all the seat water out, but it helps a lot if you're away from your car for awhile. Weird that your headliner is dry though, leaks are always a fun mystery to track down
