Well the mouth-breathing ,brown-shirted ape-like thugs at UPS brought me a little prezzy yesterday. The box literally had about 45 "fragile" stickers pasted all over it. If you look at the corners of the box, you can see they must have dragged the carbon fiber hood along the floor and boogered up the corners. They want to pick it up and inspect it and blah blah blah. I'm thinking since those corners will be painted anyway, I'll just fix it with some fiberglass resin and respray it. Have you ever had a used item damaged by them and what was the outcome? If it was brand new, hell yeah I would return it but since it's used, I think it'll just get shuffled around and nothing done while I wait 6 months to get it back.

Ouch!!! That's horrible. You might be right though. I don't see UPS being your friend on this one and helping you out in a timely manner. I guess it just depends on if you can wait. Obviously the pictures tell the story and I'm not sure how they can fight you too long on this.

kickem in the ass.....thats bullshit!!!

is it possible it was like that before being shipped???

just a thought!
You know, I don't want to think that he would be an asshat and sell something like that without disclosing it but who knows. I looked inside the box for paint and cf shards and found nothing. The only thing for sure is on those corners, the box was totally shredded.

I did file a claim with them and they want to pick it up. I would like to get it fixed and just bill the f*ckers but I bet they will just wash their hands of it and call it an act of God or some lame b.s.

I'm sure they won't give you an answer, but you could always at least try and get a timetable of a decision out of them.

I worked for Brown for a short time (yuk). The only restitution you will get is to have them pick it up. Do you really want to fix it yourself? What did you pay for it to begin with?

That's the thing. I only paid $250 plus $80 shipping from a guy on MBWorld. What do you think they would do to resolve the issue and do you feel it is worth it? You can see the damage on the box but if it is used I'm afraid they'll just say it was already like that or just refund the $250 which leaves me without a hood.

If you're gonna paint that part just repair it. Ive talked to vipclk320 several times on the phone and he seems legit. UPS will just gve you the runaround. I had the same problem with my eisenmann exhaust. UPS wante dto pick it up and send it back to the sender. I was like f*ck no, then the sender gets the part AND my money. SO I got stuck with a lsight ly damaged exhaust that noone seems to be able to repair.

Agreed. VIP is a most decent individual. Like I said, it was obvious that they dragged the shit out of this poor box, but I aint' wiggin', I'm just gonna hone my body work skills.
BB, the hood is made by VIS http://www.visracing.com/ and they suggest that the hood should have hood pins. Now I know that ain't MB style, but you know my love for '60's muscle.............whattya think?

btw, what's wrong with the exhaust?

If you like hood pins then do it! I personally didnt want them but to each his own. The tips on my exhaust are slightly dented. Cant tell unless you get up close but still.

WOW! Looks perfect! Great work! Did you just sand off the paint and the clearcoat was still underneath without being scratched. PUT IT ON THE CAR! Im getting mine painted next week and need to decide what design I want or if I should just paint the whole thing. I think you should have left more paint on to cover everything except the "bulge"
