    Default "Showcars Bodyparts" buyers feedback?

    Hello,

    Anyone ever ordered anything from these "Showcars" folks?

    If so, how were the parts and the overall buying experience?

    They appear to be the supplier to MSA for some fiberglass bits.

    I'm specifically interested in their 2-piece G-nose.

    This would be fitted to a track-only car so the part would not have to be
    concours-correct, but it would be nice if the "massaging" required for a decent fit was kept to a minimum.

    Thanks for any feedback

    I'd take a search of these forums, also search on Hybridz.org. You'll find nobody wants to do businesss with that guy.

    ZFiberglass.com has g-noses, but I hear their quality isn't really up to par.

    According to the bbb this is not a good business to deal with. Twenty complaints in 36 months. Take you chances.

    This is the Better business Bureau's lookup page. Takes a while to load because the Canadians are using a server with dial up I guess.

    Ripoffreport.com is another great place to check out a business.

    I got shafted a couple of years ago trying to buy fenders and a hood. Ever since then I check online sellers with bbb and ripoff report. Use a REAL Visa or MC AMX when buying online of course.

    Check out this thread on HybridZ.

    A friend ordered from them in June, paid them, still hasn't received his air dam, and has only gotten the runaround.

    I have to say that I bought an Spook look a like(see my gallery) from them via an ebay auction, and it was shipped fast, and doesn't need any more prep than any glass parts I have gotten from anyother vendor.
    Seems they have gone down hill in a huge way.

    A Z is beautiful from any angle, I just happen to prefer to view from the drivers' seat!
