Alright....back before Christmas I had a lil run in with a fence and ruin my front bumper. Well I have not driven my car since then! Almost 3 months! For 2 of those 3 months I was waiting for TABMEN to send me my bumper. Some of you might recognize his name from the For Sale forum. But anyways, after I sent him my almost $300 bucks for my VIS Invader Type 4 bumper I asked him about how long it would take for me to receive my bumper and he said he would ship it out the next day and it would take around a week to get here. Well a few days later I e-mailed him to see if he sent it....he hadn't but said he would in a couple days. Again, a couple days later I e-mailed him and he still hadn't sent it. This went on for over a month! He never told me he didn't have it in stock but I just picked up on that from all of his piss poor excuses on why he hadn't sent out the bumper. Anyways, after 2 months I FINALLY got it! The only problem was that it wasn't the Vis bumper I had asked for. It was some cheap immitation Erebuni Shogun bumper. I had even sent him a pic of the bumper I was talking about and he said, "Yeah thats the one I have". But besides the fact it was the wrong bumper, I thought, "Great, now I can get it painted and go." I went to the body shop.....$500 bucks to paint and fit it and what not and also spray the back bumper. Well I drop off my car and bumper. The next day, I get a call from the bodyshop guy. His words, "This is the worst bumper I have ever seen, it is 3 inches too big on both sides. There is no way it will fit. It looks more like the mold then the bumper." Well son of a bitch. I got taken for $300 bucks. The bodyshop guy said he could fix my old bumper for $400. So now I have spent $1200 on a new damn bumper! I don't know what I am going to about TABMEN. I am trying to contact him now. I am just pissed that I have not driven my car in 3 months....I am so damn pissed but I will stop now. Thanks if you guys have read this far.......and in the future. PLEASE DO NOT BUY FROM THIS GUY!

damn bro that sux. Well if it makes you feel any better. For my 5th ww rs urethane kit i went to this shop and it took them a few days to paint it. I didn't have to leave my car there so it was kinda cool. Well once they put the kit on, I got home and the back bumper was kinda hanging off. Emidiately i called the shop and yold them and they sed "We are busy right now. Can you bring it back in a week"? Iwas like fuck no I can't. Anyways rather than having to wait a week I just did it myself. that is my horror story with my kit. Your situation is much more fucked up than mine though. Heheh good luck with everything bro.

hahhahahah a,,,,,,,,ahhahahahhaa ......lols......lmao....... i dont know how many time i tell you people " TRY NOT TO BUY STUFF FROM THE NET":) the money you save isnt worth the risk youre taken :) let this be a lesson learn for us all :)

ps: sumthing trouble me, you spend $300 for a bumper , then spend $400 to fix it? lolz , isnt it easier just to get another bumper like that some where else? its not even the bumper that you want in the first place anyway right? :) i dont know :) i feel bad for you, but be smarter next time ;)

some people don't live in LA or san fran where shops are plentiful....there isn't jack in MN or even central coast CA...closest shop is 2.5 hours away. a good one for that matter.

Yeah no joke, the internet is pretty much my only source for parts, there used to be some half ass racing shop here called 2thepits..... it was baaaad... but it closed up, because they never turned a profit...Anyway, ordering on the net is fine, but try to do it with well established companies, not just random people, even EBAY is safer than the classifieds...Just a word to the wise... :)

i understand completely, yeah if you doesnt have access to a shop, the internet is where you can get your stuff, but there also establish internet company and there are individual that you doesnt know whos try to skrew you :) even if youre bying from the net there are safe ways to do it , and there are risky ways :)

LAblue: You don't help anything. I am glad you think this is funny. But I didn't find it too funny....

And also...it would be easier just to buy a new bumper. But I don't want to wait another 2 months to get a new bumper. And like lOOkatme said...there are not any shops around where I live that I can just go down and pick one up from.

Yeah same with my bumper now right in front of the wheels. If you look close you can see where it drops down. It ALWAYS hits! Just a minimal dip in the road and it hits. Kits are a pain...but worth it in the end.

same with my kit too...near the wheels..it goes down a bit lower and will scrape anything it hits....one time i dragged a dead squirrel around under the sideskirts...it was gross...


can i sugest the blitz style bumper or black widow? don't even think about paying the dude 400 bucks to fix yours...it cost 300 for a new one..

I am trying to talk to the guy that sent me the sorry bumper to see if there is any way I can get a new one or some money back or anything for that matter. What kind of front do you have on your car? Black Widow?

Also, I always miss you by like a few minutes! Everytime I get on hoping you are on so I can get those pics you had just posted something but are no longer on the board! Haha, I have bad timing I guess. I will catch you on AOL when I see you on though. Peace

CAN YOU SHUT UP. The guy came on here to vent and help us out so we don't get screwed by this guy.... then you have to post you stupid shit here. You post like your twelve.... you make no sense and you fill your posts with stupid little smiley faces. I bet your not even legal driving age! I'll tell you what... go buy a car.... learn something about it... (even how to wax it! at least its somthing) then when your over the age of 12 you can come back try posting again.

Untill then, I POOP ON YOU.

HEY MIKE- can you set the board up so we can ignore posts from her?
