    From what I have gathered he is being a little girl because he didn't get a call back in time. So now he will take his truck to another shop that might do good work or might not do good work. It takes time for custom fab work man.

    Yet you haven't met him, or paid for anything from him, or really anything to do with the guy but hound him with questions? And he in fact did respond but not fast enough so your gonna go somewhere else? And your calling him a tool in other threads?


    You sir..are the tool.


    Gtfo out of here.

    Can we request an IP ban for this guy so he can't access TW from his current ISP? He clearly has nothing good to offer this site...

    It's always interesting how angry people get. Fabricators are on their own time and I think most people who want custom work should understand. To get ahold of a very good fabricator on here you need to use Facebook but it's worth it to deal with the communication challenges for a great product at a fair price.

    Plus custom fabrication ain't just a walk in the park to begin with. It takes a lot of time to do and shit comes up all the time.

    No need to say names! Just that good fabricators are not always the best communicators

    See, I disagree with this. Im giving you 100% of the money, Thus giving you business. Therefore you should give me 100% of your time (depending on whats being done) If you properly make arrangements and appointments with someone to to get work done, There should be no reason that progress isnt constant. But what I think you're trying to say is that custom fabrication doesnt always go 100% as planned, Certain things happen that take a little more time and TLC. That I respect and know all too well. But if someone is blatantly ignoring my build, then that is a problem.

    Yeah, I wasnt agreeing with that dude at all.

    Was just commenting on what someone else said.


    If I gave someone a down payment on work and my time/money wasnt being respected then I'd loose my shit.
