I absolutely must say ... Negotiated with lewis and made a fair agreement with him. Parts were exactly as described, if not better. Transaction occurred as discussed. Delivery was quick.

I recommend, and would not hesitate, doing transactions for that quality, special part you are looking for. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you Lewis ... So very much !!

I was just looking over his ads and didn't care for the attitude in the way he represents himself. Thought I'd follow up and check out feedback to see if that attitude coincided with his sales here.

I've done business with him once and the transaction itself went decently, but I was also given a raving endorsement by him for the company who I ultimately chose to build my engine. That endorsement led me to one of the shadiest operations in VW engine building and the worst of all building experiences.

We made a trade at the beginning of the winter of 2010-11 and he left the top at my shop for a year and never said a word because he decided he didn't want it anymore because he was able to fix his sunroof, he was only going to use the top if he couldn't fix it. After a year he came across someone who needed a top and figured he could sell it to them after abandoning it here (I have a 30 day policy on any kind of parts left on premises). He claims 3 weeks, it was actually 6 because he picked up the fridge the Friday before Buses by the Bridge, which was 6 weeks before this incident, not 3. Contradiction, contradiction etc.
I offered him another top but he wanted money, not the top , and wouldn't even look at it.

First off, I don't recommend other mechanics because of this exact reason. He's trying to blame me for another mechanics work. Second, he said the transaction went good, so what is the fuss about.

He sold the top for 350
I sold to my buddy , blaze said he had a worse top
I told him I wanted the top he sold or make it good with me and
My buddy. I asked him to give me a 100 to reimburse
My friend. This is when told me to f off.

You either did or do sell engine's built by JCS. This in itself if a recommendation of their products. In your shop you fully endorsed the quality of their work.

There is no fuss here whatsoever. This is a feedback forum and I'm giving feedback. I don't blame you for the actions of another.

I have to chime in on this, being that I am the person who bought the top off jb71bay almost a year ago, and was told the same story...Blaze requested that we leave the top until I needed it, so he could continue to use the bus for storage and not have to cut it up. I am often at the shop next to Blaze's that a friend of mine runs, and have overheard numerous foul mouthed shouting matches between Mr. Mcfadden and many a disgruntled customer.
I would never recommend Blaze, or the Bug Shakk to anyone. If not for the internet, where face to face contact isn't necessary, he would have probably been out of business by now due to his unprofessional attitude and behavior.
Just another unhappy hoarder who thinks too highly of himself, IMHO.
There's my $0.02.

Top notch seller all the way!!! I recently bought a complete 36hp core engine for my 56 oval from Blaze. We spent some time sifting through his collection of engines until I found the one I wanted. I took it home and started to tear it down, and Found that the case under the fan shroud had been poorly welded and cracking around the repair. I had a feeling something like this could possibly happen due to engine being over 50 years old. I called up Blaze and told him what I found, not expecting anything and knowing that I bought a “As is” core, Blaze then offered me another case. That type of service is unheard of now a day. I would highly recommend doing business with him!!!! Very Happy

Just read "Jeff Beckman's" feedback (all negative, cussing people out, not doing refunds, people having take to legal action) and it speaks for itself, you can see what kind of person he is.
