disturbedfan,

Seriously... get off his back. If you've never done a group buy, especially one where YOU are manufacturing the product, don't harass the guy. He's doing the best he can. No wonder why he's not going to do it again.

Im sorry, but if I had to prepay for an item almost 3 months ago, I would be asking for it too. Group buys are different from people manufacturing things themselves, so I'm not really sure where you were going with that point.

Just a quick FYI for those who purchased... I would go ahead and tape up the wires there the COT touches with electrical tape, then notch the cot where the wires come and and tape that as well so it doesn't move around.

You would be surprised at the amount of damage currogated tube can do to a w/h in a short amount of time.

I forget, I was one of the first though IIRC.

I don't think he meant to harass him, he's just as anxious as I was before I got mine. Everyone wants to know where they stand on the list, that's understandable.

Sorry, but it seems like every other post is him asking about when he's gonna get it, when he's gonna get it...

It's just annoying. He's been good with communicating, providing photo proof of how everything is going, and people are receiving their product.

I've been in his position before, and I know how frustrating it is to see almost every other post "where's mine? gimme gimme gimme."

Seriously, relax, forget about it, and it will show up soon enough in the mail and it'll be a nice happy surprise

And if you wonder where you are on the list, refer to it, as it was previously posted what order your stuff is going to get shipped out in

I mean, hell, if you think you've got it bad, I've got someone 2 hours to the east of me, and someone 5 hours to the north of me that got theirs already and I'm still waiting :P

No, no. You guys have every right to be asking a lot of questions and harassing me. Disturbed, your kit should ship next week, right after Loki's kit.

The photos that levnubhin posted are pretty much what all the kits will look like. If you guys have a special request, like you'd like the harness taped up at the ends or something, let me know. I don't like the way the electrical tape looks which is why I wasn't planning on doing anything other than the plastic loom, but I am open to a little customization on each kit since I am making them by hand.

I'm definitely not trying to harass Savington at all, i know things take time and **** comes up thats why I'm not flipping out. The original quote for all of these to be shipped out was the 1st week of june; its the middle of july, so just wondering where everything is and what is going on isn't really uncalled for. I only asked "when is mine going out " once when refering to the list sav had posted the rest have been general statements about the COPS and shipping and whatnot etc....

I don't know about your situation but mommy and daddy don't pay for anything for me so i have to budget myself for cash between paychecks so its kinda important to know. so get off my back NOOB

Sav- thanx for the heads up, do you want me to pay you the rest now? or when they ship out? either way doesn't matter.

Get back to me when you own two houses, have two mortgages, and have 7 cars. Then you can call me a noob.

I've seen more than my fair share of awesome group buys get cancelled or never happen again because of people treating the person going out of their way to get YOU a cool product on the cheap get annoyed at the kind of posts your making.

Get off your ****, do a couple group buys, and THEN you can call me a noob when you've gone through it. I've set up and sponsored my fair share of group buys back in the day when I was still doing MX-6/626/probes.

I will send you a PM with installation instructions and a request for the rest via PayPal. There is no need to pay me before it's done.

To those of you who are still interested in the kits - I have no intention of ceasing production. I just don't want to accept any more orders before my current crop is 100% shipped. I want to avoid another fiasco like this at all costs, so I want to get my current backlog cleared completely, and ensure that I have the time and parts on-hand to fill the orders, before I accept new orders.

doesn't matter in this situation, with 67 posts in 6months, you're still classified as a noob on any forum

I'm on COPS! Thanks Savington!

The 94 isn't quite PNP but with your intructions it was nice and easy even for a dummy like me. Only an hours work to cut, splice, regap plugs, change ms settings. Started right up and runs great. Looks good too!!!

Damn, one more reason I'm going to have to pull and clean up my intake and valve cover. All these new shiny parts make the rest look bad!

Got mine yesterday via FEDEX.

The only thing I can suggest is a smaller box, and no more packing peanuts for my cat to throw around the house! Though it was quite the treasure hunt

Thanks, will let you know when they're in!

Yeah, the boxes are tough. Most of the boxes I have laying around that are smaller can't hold a 15" long metal bracket, and the ones that can are 10x17x14.

I have, however, figured out an excellent way of getting rid of packing peanuts.
