As for the Alt bracket, I'm nearing the end of the run of 9 brackets.


Please send me a bracket so I can at least put the motor IN.

It needs to be in before July 24th or I am evicted from my complex.

Thank you

Matthew

Once the engine is mounted you'll see the holes on the "pad" where the front engine mount sits on the 88 cradle, dont quite line up & need to be redrilled in the pad.

I would like a refund for the engine bracket as I found someone who will ship me one.

It never arrived today and I will probably get my eviction notice tomorrow

I ordered the bracket months and months ago to prepare for this day!

Edit: Please send the modded alt bracket asap, its been too long!

MY BAD!!!!! I REALLY apologize. I went back through all the invoices from that time to find there was 2 orders to Canada when I thought there was only one. So the one order that got shipped went to a different forum member.

I'm so sorry, as I could have had them there.

I'll get the Alt bracket out ASAP

If there is anything else I can help with let me know...............................................I feel like such an IDIOT

Its ok, I have another engine mount on its way. Just please refund the $60 for the engine bracket and whatever extra shipping was. Then please please mark the alternator bracket as a repaired item. or I will get charged over $60 in duty.

Purple I am still waiting on my alt bracket, i told you that i needed it by the 8th of Aug and you told me that it would be no problem, now it is already the 5th of the month and i am pretty sure that i am going to have to push all of my plans back because of this. everything else concerning my engine is on hold all because i don't have my bracket. i have been trying to get in contact with you and i hardly ever get an answer, the last time that we talked you told me that it would be no problem and right now you only have 2 days to get it to me. i'm not saying that it can't be done but it sure looks like i'm not going to have them in time.

PR, for your own good, this is why I have ignored your PM's. I'm still debating if I want to go through you or not. The reasoning is as follows, this is what I've read over the last 3 pages. . .

when are mine going to be shipped out? i paid 2 weeks ago

Bump for delivery???!

Just checking to see if you have sent out that set for a manual yet. Thanks

Steve

Bump for mine as well.

I hope you do get mine shipped out this week, as I had it sent to you months ago.. I should be driving by now!

Sorry for the delay. The # of brackets skyrocketed to 8 and I was planning on visiting the welder only once. It WILL be done soon.

You seemingly have no problem being there when you want to pitch a sale, but when It comes time to deliever, you fail. This is also perhaps why people are taking back paypal. From what I've heard, you have other issues. Friendly man to man advice, don't let that effect what you do. Keep work at work and personal stuff at home. When you walk out of that door, you're still going into the real world, and as such, treat it accordingly.

First off most of those quotes looking for thier items are for the Alt brackets, which are the worst pain in the a$$ to make, with the need of the Fiero bracket and expensive hardware. Not to mention I have a guy who is a certified aluminum welder doing these who works 2 jobs. So getting 9 brackets done is really hard. Secondly I do this in my supposed spare time, NOT AS A PROFESSION. Third, the mounts are also TIG welded and done when the welder has time.

Not that I'm going to sit and make excuses, but I do this more as a service to the Fiero community since the only other vendor out there that makes these is useless. So if thats all you have to whine about is a few people that didnt get thier stuff on thier clock, then I dont need the hassle. I already have one member on here ( NHESTO ) that has stiffed me on an Alt bracket. At this rate I'll sell off the remaining stock of mounts to Loyde and give up this service completly.

And lastly, not a single one has "taken back Paypal" so get your information from another source.

So I sit here and try to think, "Perhaps I didn't show the tact I would have liked to?" I agree that this is a service to the community, but if you're going to offer this service, please do so in a professional manner. I was honestly letting you know, from an outside potential buyers perspective, what I had witnessed. I had to ask you questions several times to get an answer, yet when you have the mounts ready, you are quick to PM me a couple of times and say "Gimme money, gimme money, gimme money" (to a degree). Regardless, my last post was merely a suggestion. This being said, I'm glad I get to see your character, as my concerns are regarded as 'whining' and instead of cordially informing me of everything, you snap back.

..........................................and no I dont say " Gimme money, Gimme money " ......................I have NEVER said that to anyone, and I prefer they keep it until the product is ready to ship.

If only your "mere suggestion" or "cordially inform" didnt come accross as a cocky, big father, attitude then maybe it wouldnt look like whining.

To add light to this in a more polite manner, Shawn does not have a normal job. He works on a customer influenced schedule, meaning most of his customers at his shop just drop off their car (at all and old hours) and need it done right now with no appointment or notice. Probably because that is thier only car and now it's broke.......

Where I'm going with all this is, when Shawn says your products are going to be ready or shipping, most of the time they will, but when a big fire drill happens at the shop, his "side job" of making fiero parts get put on hold. Part of the fire drill means not having time to call or PM until the chaos is over.........

So to sum things up, DON'T order mounts for a certain date and take a week off of work starting the day they are supposed to arrive. You guys have to plan ahead and gather all your necessary parts before hand. Even with full blown manufacturing companies I deal with in Aviation, parts are always behind.

I'm not flaming anyone or anything, I'm just trying to give some helpful advise.


Thanks,
MOBILE

P.S. A free honest plug for Shawn. I see him slaving over these, drilling, grinding, painting, ALL BY HAND!! They are the finest available, and worth the wait as the previous posts indicate. THERE IS NO WAY IN H&LL I WOULD DO THIS MUCH WORK FOR THIS LITTLE MONEY!!

I Love all you guys, and would help with any tech stuff anytime, but shawn does slave labor just cause he likes fieros. Nobody ever said he was normal

I Love all you guys, and would help with any tech stuff anytime, but shawn does slave labor just cause he likes fieros. Nobody ever said he was normal




FINE THEN!!
Now he is going to slave over some more of these mounts and such, just for me. (JOKE in spirit or previous post)

I need: a complete set for 3800, and a lower alt mount. (Fiero is 1988 Formula, Auto Im using the 3800 and the 4T60 from the 3800)
Need anymore information just ask. No time limit, I am "gathering parts."

So get to work. (I mean this in a nice way.)

MOBILE, is right...guys....this dude is not the average one of us. He is doing us all a big favor, and it's your planning that screws you, not his. If you know that you are going to be doing a 3800 swap...why not get the mounts, get all of your other much needed equipment ordered, and payed for, before you start your swap. Because it is not this guys fault that you have dropped your engine, you've done all the work, and then, " oh crap, I need mounts". So for those of you who are doing or thinking about doing a swap...get your mounts now...dont wait until you car is in a shop on stands before the idea clicks that you need them....
By the way....PURPLE REIGN you have yourself another customer who will not push you for time...I need the works man..you have come highly recommended...
PM me your price, and any other info you need.
