Paul recently answered one of my wanted ads, and I purchased several things from him as a result. I was very pleased with everything I received.
The parts were 100% NOS as he stated, shipped quickly, packed extremely well, and his communication with me was excellent. Smile

Just an outstanding person to deal with, and I would highly recommend him !

Thanks again Paul,

Chris Mangler

I've also done some trading with Paul, and was super-happy with the deal I got. Shipping was super-fast and parts were well protected. Great guy.

Paul answered one of my want ads with the correct parts and answers to some of the questions I had about the applicability of the parts.

I got the parts quicker than anticipated and they were well packed and in good shape.

We used Paypal for the transaction and it was smooth.

Thanks so much paul! Very Happy

Paul is one of the most honest and easiest people in the VW community to deal with. Very down to earth and friendly. My brother and I, plus a few friends, have done business with him for a few years now and he is always helpful. He is an active person in the scene and knows his stuff. Hey Paul, I'm still looking for the VW Trends with the pink '68 Fastback on the cover. Let me or Josh know if you've got it.

Paul,
That's not the one. My car is lowered on 8 spokes and has a grey velour interior. The body has been dechromed also. Here's a pic. http://thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/155927.jpg

I have dealt with Paul. He is NOT the fellow you worry about. You can rest easy if you deal with him.

In this business you will know soon enough who can fly straight.

Paul is always good to deal with.

Ciao.

Just wanted to confirm two transactions with Paul this year. Both worked out great as both items were as described and a good value. Both items were picked up on separate trips to Florida and Paul was very accomadating.

I just got a set of adjustable struts from Paul. Fast e-mail response, and fast shipping. I'll look forward to do business with him again.

I recently purchased a headliner from Paul for my '64 Beetle and it was just as he described in his ad. His parts, service and communication are the best around.

If Paul has it and you need it, I highly recommend purchasing from him.

Thanks again Paul!

Merry Christmas!

Just got a Crank & Flywheel from Paul and they were better than described, packaged well and shipped quickly. Cut me a great deal too! I've bought from Paul before and would never hesitate to do business with him... Always a cut above the rest.

Paul was very patient and courteous regarding my purchase of used Thing parts from him. His communication and shipping was great and his description of the items purchased was entirely accurate if not over-critical. I'm completely satisfied with my purchase and hope to have the good fortune of buying more Thing parts from Paul.
Mike Very Happy

Paul bought a decklid light assembly and a T-handle assembly from me. The transaction was very smooth and Paul paid right away. Definitely a great buyer!
