Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well filed a claim with paypal about my side skirts. Since Sergio hasn't responded since July 27th. When he said he was going to ship them put the next day.

The guy at paypal didn't seem to listen to me however. I told him I only needed the refund for the side skirt's ($270+shipping)
But he put in claims for all my transactions for Sergio. And gave him till sept 19th to respond or I get all of it back which isn't right as the rest was ok.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Since Sergio hasn't responded in weeks to me about my side skirts I filed a claim with paypal.

The idiot at paypal however filled for all 3 payments when I specificall told them I only needed the cost of the side skirts plus shipping refunded. So now it looks like I'm going after a refund for all of it.

Sergio has till sept 19th to respond or I get refunded all my money back for the whole thing, which isn't right but hopefully Sergio will respond

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

realized I havent updates this in forever.

wish I had good news but truth is since picking up the car from dsm revival in spartanburg back in what Oct.

I've got to drive the car for a total of 5 days. All of which were driving either home, to an oil change place or back to the shop that did the work.

the car was fine till the builder said switch to different weight oil (used his specific oil) then the car started leaking, followed shortly by smoking.
it was leaking so bad I didn't even bother pulling it off the lift at the oil change place I had the tow truck guy back the trailer right to the lift and we pushed it onto the trailer.

I finally got the car back with no oil leaks after a like 2 months.

Then got fed up with that guy as it still smokes and took it some where else. Nick Derrick place.

anyrate I asked him to look into the smoking issue, tune the car, and get an alignment done.
5 months he's had the car and still not fixed right.

he says the tune is done, he actually had a suspension bolt come off just after doing a tuning run that probably would have killed him had it been at speed vs just about back to his house.
so thay prompted me to have him check check the whole car over. he found 4 bolts in the back suspension that were on thier last threads and about to fall out.

after all that he went out to test the car 1 last time and got 1.2miles from his house and it sprayed all the oil out of the car.

That was 4 weeks ago and he hasn't touched it since
I swear I miss the days I could just drive 30min to our local shop or call up the guys and have a weekend install party at the house.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

picts of the front driver side suspension that the bolt fell out just after nick did his tuning run.


also to follow up on the carbonetic stuff. all my parts came in and are currently collecting dust in my garage.

I found a shop today in sumpter(40min from me) that I'll probably use to install all this stuff and do the body work on my white car. they were actually used on one of Chip Foose's overhauln TV episodes.

so will probably be expensive but at this point I'd pay extra for work to get done
