I am going to purchase some heater boxes from Mick. I am a little nervous, not knowing him and not being able to find any feedback on him. Anyone know him personally or anyone dealt with him before? Thanks!

I bought a set of exhaust headers from him a couple of months back. I had to email him after sending him my money.
That was about a week after I thought the money order should have shown up, thought that was enought time to get them in the mail. They showed up about three days later. It was really my first experience buying parts off the internet so I have nothing else to compare it to but my parts arrived in good condition with no other problems. I would do business with him again FWIW.

I can personally vouch for Mike (mikmalone) as I have purchased items both from eBay and on here. He answered all my questions in a timely manner and left me the appropriate (positive) feedback on eBay and I believe his feedback is close to 100% on eBay as well.

Mike is a good guy with very fair prices and he has given me a lot of advice when I asked for any. He has never misled me to buy something that I wasn't sure would fit or not and that in itself was helpful because I have had folks who knew better take advantage of my being so new at all this.

Thanks for all of your feedback on this one. I have gone ahead and purchased the set of heat exchangers.

I bought a complete deluxe-trim set for baywindow.
Turned out that I didn't get the clips as promised, when i mailed him he responded that he would send them right away. That was exactly three weeks ago, I know it's not a VERY long time, but the deluxe trim itself took under two weeks. I just tried sending him an email, but it turned out that the adresse was no longer valid. So i checked his new ads and sent him an email via one of those, turned out he had changed his email adresse.

I'm not saying he ripped me off yet, just a notice to the ones of you dealing with him. Hopefully I'll recieve the clips and when I do, I'll let you know!

Just to add my experience with Mik

Bought a pair of 67 only window cranks and door lock knobs from him. He answered my emails either the same day or next. Parts arrived by first class mail a week and half after he received my cash in excellent condition and well packed. I would do business with Mik again. He is honest and has good email communication.

For those of you complaining about slow mailing.... pay him extra and I am sure he will send it out in priority mail or something. Keep in mind that first class mail is not as fast as it used to be years ago. That is not Mik's fault, but the USPS's fault.
