    I prepaid a week and a half ago, as I wanted to be sure I had one of his next sets. I could have done it myself, but didnt want to hear the bitching when using the oven.:mad: Anyway, he told me 2 weeks +/-, so no worries yet.

    Seems like a straight shooter, although i think he may have taken on alot at once as he has these lights listed on multiple forums...

    Anyway, let us know when you do hear from him. I'm gonna sit back another week before I start getting "ansey".

    I havent heard anything either, and sent him a PM last night...

    I've had soo many problems lately on Ebay, and other online retailers, which is why I decided to go this direction (through a trusted site and community). I bet I have had to file 4 Paypal claims in the last month and a half!!! Its getting old.

    I really wasnt nervous (just asumed he was out of town or having pc problems) until I just saw that he signed on last night... A response to either of us would have put me at ease. My PM was at like 6:30 pm, and he logged on last night about 9:30....

    Not saying I doubt eltaco, or that hes pulling anything "shady"... just seems like I've hit a streak of bad luck, and hope these lights I prepaid for over 2 weeks ago dont end up as another Paypal claim...

    I really dont mind waiting, as long as theres good communication.

    I was told when I sent the $ it would be around 2 weeks, and I was fine with that.

    Now its been longer, and with no communication I am beginning to wonder... Especially when it seems like he's avoiding PM's.

    ok, since its been longer than supposed to be, and since you guys havent had communication with the dude, pm the moderators and see if they can figure something out. aint really sure what else to do.

    Well, I'm going to give him until mid next week, then file a Paypal claim.

    hate to do it, and find out later that he had some form of emergency...ofcourse he just signed on the other night and apparently blew both of our PM's completely off, so I dont know why I feel so obligated to be patient...

    Dcass, if you decide to PM the mods, or file a claim, well obviously its your call. I will give him til Wednesday, then I'm coming unglued!
