Update: I'm still waiting to hear back from Joe after discussing return of $$ or shipment of items. The issue at this point has still not been resolved. The last date we set for action has come and gone without a word from him.

I'm not going to get into the details, but one of his last PMs said that he was going to ship the goods out the last week in Janurary. Today is April 23rd and I haven't heard from him...

If there is a genuine reason for the delay then maybe it is time for his workload to decrease so that deadlines can be met. I for one can cope when someone says that they will deliver a part in six months and it arrives on time but irrespectve of how good they are, not meeting deadlines especially when given by the supplier is unacceptable.

Well, i still need running boards. I'm not really liking the normal type, but if I need something for my german looker. I don't know of any other options for carbon fiber running boards. Some type of newer modern rocker panel would look great, but those don't exist.

I met a guy locally that does carbon fiber work. He just did a pair of gloveboxes for me. Really nice. I'll post pics in my '52 build thread tommorrow. If the interest is there, i can take my carbon running boards (not carbon Joe's), and ask him to mold them up to repop. Are all running boards the same? Standards/supers?

How many people would be interested? I'm guessing 10 sets would make the price reasonable? Honestly, I have no idea, but can investigate the option if the interest is there.

Maybe some other parts too? This could open up some options for everyone......

Let me know,
Pete
