got all the deposits in, looks like we're good to go. if he can't hold the hoods, i'll just buy them...mong, you & your unlce can just pay me back (lol hopefully by the 15th) but i have enough to just get them. might wind up better like that. i'll talk to him & see...hopefully everything with the pricing is worked out.
if it does end up like that, my uncle and i will pay you back asap. thanks for looking out caleb. btw, if it's not too much trouble. can you ask carbon_innovations for our groupbuy price for different styles of carbon fiber hood for the 03 nissan sentra se-r spec-v?

it's for one person, but he wanted to know the difference prices for the various carbon fiber hoods available for his car. he works at advance auto parts in my hometown and he hooked me up with free issues of various magazines (import tuner, superstreet, etc.) that they were going to throw away. he recently rear-ended someone so his hood is crinkled. i told him i'll see what i can do about finding him some prices since i'm coincidently in a groupbuy because my hood is damaged also.

ok guys, 1 thing and i hope it doesnt upset you guys to much:

when i asked for the shipping price (which wound up being $72 an item) i said it was for 7 items..i dunno why i guess i was thinking about the cf fenders i wanted (but he doesnt have). so the SHIPPING price is slightly higher because in actuality we're only ordering 6 items, not 7.

is it possible for you guys to each add $12 to your previous final price? really sorry about that..i know $12 isn't a heck of a whole lot but it's more than what i said. let me know...in any case i'm gonna order as soon as he gets back to me on whether he can accept an american express card for payment.

hoods are coming!!!

^^ i'm going to ask.

something curious though: i asked to pay be credit card and he responded saying "no. on orders that big we only take money order"

wtf? just sounds fishy. the guy's got a great feedback rating on ebay (well over 2,000 transactions) but thats just funny in an odd way. if he doesn't accept a credit card payment i don't know what to do. i mean of course i can send a money order i just don't get the reasoning behind it. honestly it makes me not want to buy..mostly for the sake of you guys. i can handle screwing up my own money but no way can i do that to others.

in any case, if i do send out a money order..it definately will not be to a person. company name only. i'll keep you guys updated but if it gets anymore odd i'm just gonna call it off. hoods aren't that important and i'd rather be extra sure i'm not going to get hassled for an extra $30-$40 from clear (mongs guy) or kenny (the other guy i contacted) than to have something that sounds too good to be true really be too good to be true.

let me know. that just sounded really stupid..combined with the horrible customer service and relentless bugging i had to do just to get a price quote. i'm definately happy with the price, but as of right now i'm not really comfortable with the person.

^^ sounds good to me, mong.

i'd rather pay an extra $30 bucks or so and it be secure, than take a risk. like i said..the guy has a great reputation with the feedback system, but something just doesn't feel right about not being able to accept a credit card for the reason of 'being a large order'.

just wanted you guys to know whats up and how i felt.

anyway, here's the back & forth e-mails i've been sending to carbon innovations. some of the stuff is missing because i would reply to another response instead of to my original e-mail...so if it's kind of 'choppy' thats why.

this is pretty much from the beginning when i was just going to buy the hood & hatch myself.

edit--start reading from the bottom on up.

company policy, we dont accept any credit card for that big of amount

ok, where do u want me to send it?

not a big deal, whats the difference between a credit card or money order though? just seemed faster to do it over credit card or paypal or whatever.

yea, it is aggrivating, mong. get back to us on clear's prices..at least he sounds like he actually wants the business and he sounds a little more 'secure'.

dunno why i'm bugged about it, prob cause i'm dealing with other peoples money so i get extra paranoid lol

ok guys..well i already said it in the other thread but my honda accord probably just got totalled tonight (not official..but its pretty obvious to me). i don't know what this means with everything else though so my money is pretty much on hold onto this stuff gets figured out.

mong, let us know what clear says. i'm still in as long as i possibly can afford it...i'm not at fault and the driver of the chevy avalanche that hit me got ticketed. so hopefully this works out quickly and we don't have to take it to court. if we have to take it to court though it might be awhile and i'll be having to spend my own money on buying a rental car or whatever else.

shouldn't affect anything, just giving a headsup. i'm just full of bad luck lately :(

i e-mailed him back asking absolutely the lowest price he can make this groupbuy work. once again, the only thing we can do is wait.
