Mike, this is Josh. I know you'll see this here so this is just a reminder to bring the early bay rear end parts to "No Dough" this weekend. We spoke at Lake Land and via email over the past couple of months. I also sent you an IM so check your messages before the weekend.

Thanks
Josh

why am I reading this here without any email from you on this? I sent you two rear vent windows( 1 bieng perfect and one missing one tab that is easily fixed) Both frames which were not in great condition but could make one from two. For $60 shipped.

Just for the record, I was offered $50 for just the one perfect one by another buyer, so in no way do I think you got burned.

You could have emailed me and mentioned something?? I have access to more and could have done something to ensure a buyers happiness?

thanks.

Thanks Mike for the two steering boxes ($50 for both) and the bay gas tank in pristine condition ($40).

I will hold onto the windshield for you.

I placed a WTB ad and Mike was the first and only one to respond. He had what I was looking for and was even flexible on the price. The part arrived within three-four days. Awesome!!!

Just thought I'd add this.. I posted some pics of my rusted out seats and asked what I should do with them. Mike stepped up and said he had a pair for me. Went the extra distance of stripping off the old covers, took some pics and e-mailed them to me. He even worked out transportation from FLA for me via another samba member. On top of all that he threw in a rear facing seat cushion...for nothing. Mike is a real stand up guy, would not hesitate to do business with him in the future. Thanks again Mike!

Thanks to some intervention from Everett, I finally received payment today. As far as I'm concerned, the matter is closed.

I see his visited the site today so bam, all ads are deactivated until this is resolved or proof of mailing is provided.

I sent him another email that says the same.

Two more weeks. No payment, no parts, no contact at all.

However, when I posted above (on September 20th), Everett contacted Mike and told him to resolve the issue. That same day, Mike wrote the following (to Everett, not me):

sorry ev, i just sent his stuff off this morning.
Mike


According to the USPS, a parcel post package mailed from Middlesburg FL to my location would take approximately 7 days. Since it's been 14 days, I can only assume Mike is now lying to Everett as well.

Just FYI, the last time Mike contacted me was August 25th.

Just bought some smoothie rims from Mike. The family and I drove down to pick them up, very nice guy and even cut me some more slack with the price. Got a free bug fender out of the deal too. I would deal with him anytime. Thanks Mike.

Another week, no replies to my emails or PMs. However, Mike still visits the site and posts in the forums.

I really find it hard to believe a long-time member of this site would risk his reputation for a palty $80. I guess no good deed goes unpunished.

I hate to do this, but since Mike won't reply to my emails or PMs so I'm kind of out of options. I know Mike is a long time member of theSamba, and I have had good dealings with him in the past.

On June 28th, I mailed a Thing exhaust system that I had advertised to Mike on good faith - we agreed he would either pay me the $80 for the exhaust or send me parts of an equivalent value from a Thing he was parting out.

We had contact on 7/7, 7/13, 8/12, and 8/25. Each time there were assurances that the parts were being shipped, or the money was being mailed, or that his computer was down, etc. Neither money nor parts ever arrived. In the past week, I've both emailed and PMed him - those messages were ignored.

Mike, I know you're a good guy, but it's time to step up and either send me the money or parts. We're going on 3 months here.

Mike is a stand up guy! I just purchased a bumper from him, and the shipping company I sent out to him stood him up twice. Mike also tried to save me money by asking if there was somewhere he could take the bumper to help out. Everything came out great and I'm very happy! Thanks Mike

Has anyone heard from Mike recently? Shortly after I posted the feedback above, I mailed him a Thing exhaust system with the agreement that he would either pay me cash or we'd work out a trade deal for some parts. I mailed the muffler on June 28th and now I can't get him to reply to PMs or emails.

Mike is great to deal with. I bought a part from him and there was a small issue. Mike came through with flying colors and made it right. Thanks!

Mike was great to buy from. He kept in close contact with me the whole time. I picked up a pedal car from him at a pretty fair price. He shipped the item the same day that he got the money order and I would definately buy from him again if he has something that I want/need.
