I started a thread in the bay window bus forum asking about locking decklids...Karl offered to hook me up with one and key it as well. I out a key and a check and got the handle within a week. Karl freaking rules, so if you ever deal with him or even talk to him, keep that in mind.

Found this old post about Karl, so I won't start a new one. As one already said, Karl freaking rules! I PM'ed him on Thursday about a timing scale and screen for my bus, and lo and behold here it is on Monday morning. Calif. to Missouri! Packed well and in good shape.

Thanks Karl!

I also bought a timing scale off of him. He shipped it before the money made it to him! I would gladly do business with him again!

Recently got some parts from Karl- great service, and he really knows his stuff! Do not hesitate to ask this guy for parts. Odds are, he'll have what you need.

Karl Rocks!

Helped me figure out what engine tin I needed. I bought the one in his example pic. I am not sure this tin was ever on a bus. Too clean and the vw/audi stamp is too sharp. Very nice indeed.

Karl will not do you wrong!

I bought a steering wheel off him a while back - He shipped it before I even sent him the $$$. Excellent communication and great parts.

I should have written this a while ago, but Karl was a pleasure to buy from. He sent out my parts before I sent out the money for them. Top notch guy and I will buy from him again.

Just received some parts from Karl, good transaction, fast email replies, good guy! He even included two sets of screws to mount my mosquito screens on my bus, one set standard size and one oversize. Cool Cool

Would not hesitate a second to do business again, A+ Cool
