Great seller. I know the parts I get from Steve will be the real deal...along with quick shipping and proper packaging. Thank you!

I bought several items from Steve. Parts have always been well packaged and arrived quickly. Everything is clean and usually like new. Great seller.

Just as an FYI. We sold a set of cylinders to a member in Texas and one was damaged in shipment. My cost was $600 plus $130 to have a couple fins professionally welded - and we sold them for $389 shipped. The shipment was insured for its full value, and the buyer is filing a claim to USPS after we discussed it. The box was lined with tempered hardboard and it had an X of tempered hardboard in it as well to separate the cylinders and keep the top and bottom from collapsing. USPS was paid special handling to treat it as fragile even though that was probably not necessary with the way it was super packaged. The buyer said that the box was Ok but where we are puzzled is how multiple fins could be damaged on one cylinder inside a wooden box that in turn was inside a cardboard box. I don't have photos of the outside box yet. It looks like something heavy hit the top fin breaking it and also bending the one under it. I am hoping that USPS won't blame the seller or buyer and deny the claim. I have photos when the items were packaged and they were fine. It is hard to imagine that force being applied without it damaging the outside box or breaking the the tempered hardwood board inside too. The cylinders could not move in their compartments either. The bent fin looks like something like a hammer or big rock / heavy item landed on it.

That said, new cylinders appear to still be available from Porsche (912E) as they use the same part number. If so we can order one to replace the damaged one. I hate having this problem on hold until USPS decides what to do, but they indicated online they may want to inspect the box and item, and it is in Texas now with the buyer. Likewise if it is sent back to me that totally invalidates the USPS insurance per their contract. So until USPS looks it over or decides what they want to do, I am in a holding pattern here. It will work out but I feel bad the buyer is in this situation. If they still want the item, it is a hassle they didn't need. And if they don't want it then it all depends on USPS on whom they will find at fault for the claim. I am willing to take the item back when this is over if the seller doesn't want it, and would have if he told me that when he got it if he felt that, and the insurance money is returned to me to send to Ashraft who technically owns these - that assumes that USPS doesn't take the item away, which they do sometimes. It will work out but unfortunately the buyer will have to work with me on this one - that is why we insure all the shipments. When I get photos of the box I'll know more about how the damage occurred. - SGKent

Steve, Can't Thank You enough for helping me out with the "Unobtainable" VW exhaust donut/clamp kit part# 023-298-051 to complete my NOS exhaust for my 1977 VW Westfalia Deluxe Campmobile. A VW man with parts to share is a true VW friend indeed... Great asset to the VW community !
This part will be put to good use.

I purchased a few NOS parts from Steve a few months ago; they arrived quickly and were packed professionally.

I also had the pleasure of overseeing the installation of a few of his parts on a customer's car, and everything went together smoothly, as if the car itself was still on the assembly in line in 1977.

Thanks for being a great asset to the VW community!

Robbie

Bought a number of small items from Steve. Adds were well explained, communication was top notch, and received items within a few days.
Thank you, Bill

Steve dug around and found me a set of his EGR gaskets for the type 4 bus engines. Super helpful and easy to deal with, worked with me on payment and shipped fast and well packed. His advice on the Bay forums has helped me immensely and now so has his parts supply!

Thanks again SGKent!

I have almost completed my first type 4 engine build and Steve has been there ever step, answered every question, educated me, and made me feel more than comfortable tackling the task. A true asset to the VW community. Steve is more than an enthusiast he truly cares about vw's and the people who work on them. His character is unmatched by anyone other than maybe Colin. Thanks for everything! I have not purchased anything from him, but there is no where to leave general feedback on deserving or undeserving members that I could find.

Steve is a credit to this website....both on the forums and in the items he sells. I'm an international member here in Australia and although the item I was buying was high value, Steve made me feel comfortable throughout.

Didn't feel like I was buying from a seller more from someone offering presales and post sales support. His VW mechanical knowledge is up there with anyones.

A VW legend.

Not only is Steve quite the knowledgible authority figure on the Bay forum, he has some outstanding parts. Bought a blue printed type IV oil pump that arrived super fast / cheap shipping / excellant communication. Nothing bad to say about this seller.
