If you want to take advantage of your freedom before it's gone, you can contact the vendors on the site, describe what happened and the site's response and see what they'll do to support you. If it's really that bad, maybe some wouldn't want to be associated with the site. That would pressure the site owner to take some action.

Then go to the vendors advertising on his website, and tell them you're posting on MT as well.

FYI I bought my Jenvey ITBs from Noah, and all the (aluminum) air horns were broken. Sure, he can blame USPS or whatever, but the ITBs were wrapped in a ******* BATH TOWEL for ****'s sake. I didn't pay much attention as I never intended to run the ITBs on the horns (I have an FRP plenum from Bill Schenker) but he didn't know that. Anyway, it was entirely his fault since he didn't package it properly.

When I shipped a head, I wrapped around in bubble wrap tightly, then put it in an oversized box full of peanuts. I take pride in packaging, it shows you care about the product you are shipping. things shipped poorly are useless worthless.

When I bought my SC from myblueC5, he not only used that foam in a bag stuff, he packed the whole thing between old seat cushions. The box could have fallen off a truck on the highway and the parts would have still been okay.

He also shipped the day I emailed him and told him the money orders were on the way, a full 3 days before he got the money. On top of it, when I couldn't find one of the injector connectors, he ordered one from where he originally got them, and had it shipped directly to me. Now that's integrity.

I bought something recently that was basically a metal cylinder, about 1-2 lbs. It was shipped to me in a USPS envelope (not a box, an envelope). Surprise, the envelope arrived with nothing in it. The cylinder tore right through the envelope during shipping. Amazingly USPS found the missing item when I filed a claim and sent it to me no charge. The seller was a useless POS and did nothing.

all the work has been done to the head and only thing left to do is asemble and set the lash (grinding the lash caps is required to set the lash)
