Be cautious when dealing with this person. He sold me a dashboard clock and claimed it was working. The entire works had to be replaced and it cost me $110.00 to repair it. There was no way that this happened during shipping. He seemed like an honest person.

No refund was offered and Danny did not reply to my second e-mail. Again, he claimed that the clock worked when he shipped it. The professional that did the repair assured me that the works were not damaged in shipping because the clock would have to have been been crushed. In addition, Danny told me that the shipping cost also included insurance. The shipment was not insured which, again, makes the transaction appear strange.

My experience prompted me to start this thread to help others make good decisions. It's up to you. Caveat Emptor

Be cautious when dealing with Danny Byers.

I did not read any of Danny's previous feedback history but just scored a popes nose off of him. Item was in better shape than expected, price was beyond fair and his ship time reasonable also. I would buy from him again! Thanks, Danny!

Danny,
answered a wanted ad i had and was quick to ship the pieces off to me.
unfortunately a mix up in how it was to be shipped resulted with me sending the parts back.

i emailed him right after and he was great about taking care of the problem.
100% satisfied and will do business with him again

Top notch guy here. Fast delivery and I must appreciate the perfect packaging he did to make sure my vintage piece arrived to me safely. Thanks for keeping up with the communication also Danny! Your a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to more business dealings with you in the future!

dont buy anything off this guy unless your there in person. there is a good chance you will be lied to. at least that was my case,not to say that the price wasn't too unfair but definitely lacked a lot of honesty. Mad :lied about the rust issues,lied about what was included in the deal, failed to mention that the car was in a MAJOR accident at one point, and has been pan swapped! and played dumb about the whole thing!

Buy with caution, even if its in person! I bought a 67 Bug from Danny, he promised to have the rear seat to me within a day or two, its been a few weeks and he nearly NEVER reply's back to communication. He's an extremely WELL funded kid, having negative feedback already it seems he's off to a bad start with the best community around. This kid lives less than a mile from me and I'm really surprised that he would screw someone so close to his home...... He's full of excuses.

about a year ago i bought pre-64 pop outs and a Hamburg hood crest off him. when i received the windows ONE OF THEM WAS PLEXIGLASS!!! i had specifically asked him if both of them were original and he said that they were. this ticked me off. also the crest ended up being a reproduction and now after being wet a few times when washing water seeped in and ruined it. when it comes to the windows he stated he could not tell because they were dirty but one was clearly weighed less then the other. i would NOT SUGGEST DOING BUSINESS WITH HIM.

Lack of me checking my feedback, the car that's was on a "swapped pan" I had no idea of since I didn't do it, it's was still in project state when I had sold it, do to I only having it for a short period and I did tell him about the damage that's why a new clip was installed in the front with pictures sent to him showing it, which I would actually be interested in buying back if possible, as for the other, the seat had been given back to the guy that bought the 67, past owner before me had it and he knew about and the pop outs we're settle along time ago with a partial payment back to make it right, it was my fault all together on that

PostPosted: Sun Apr 27, 2014 6:57 pm    Post subject: oval front fenders Reply with quote

I responded to Danny's add for a pair of oval window front bullet fenders. He followed up promptly with the additional pictures I requested. I decided to buy the fenders and we settled on a price. Instead of shipping, Danny suggested we meet up at the PNWspringmeet in Bellevue WA. That worked great for me. Danny was right where he said he'd be and the fenders were very nice. Danny even gave me a discount from the agreed price when we located a flaw in one fender that hadn't been detected before. I am very happy with my purchase and with the service from Danny. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from him again.

i agree with "ryanhienze" this kids full of excuses!!! what kind of major vw enthusiest/mechanic CANT tell a panswaped car that you own with totaly different wire set up from the factory than a real 63 would have?.?.?...(61 smashed body on a 63 rusted out pan). i can go on with differences with this car from the incorrect pan, severe damage ect... and for the records: the picures did not due much justice. it is my fault for not investigating more and having too much trust in people i guess.
