Don't sweat it, Don. Things like that happen very often with car modding and services offered to others. It sucks but that gives you 2 choices.

1) Keep the LEDs for future inquiries and someone else to want the mod. (wish your butt was in CA or I'd give you my pieces to do).

2) Sell the LEDs and make up for your money, or at least close to.

Either options is doable and should compensate for your effort to buy them. It's understandable you'd be upset; however, that doesn't won't help or do anything bro. Things come up in others' lives and plans change.. it's just the fact of life.

lol what were the approx value of the LEDs?

Thanks for the response guys.

Thunder,

I appreciate it.

Rani,

I understand things happen, but his excuse that "I have to buy Christmas presents" is pretty lame. He didn't realize when he called me last week that Christmas was coming? I've got $70 in his parts. It's by no means going to break me, and I'll just hang onto them for the next conversion if nobody needs them. I just think it was a pretty crappy thing to do after I told him I don't stock the LED's, I order them for each individual job, so he KNEW I had to buy them. Anyway....thanks for listening guys, again, the cost will by no means break me, it just isn't how I would do business with somebody else, so it irritates me.

Don, If I had a job and money for this work, you would already have my parts. When i worked with Irish for my headlights i gave him a deposit of 100 to buy parts (IRISH DOES NOT REQUIRE THIS) however, i needed him to know i was serious and wanted to get the job done. Your reputation here speaks for its self so people know what they are gonna get and can trust you. you may want to start taking a deposit since you have to front the money. Its seems like a full led swap costs 70 in parts, so i think its fair if someone wants this they should feel comfortable sending you that 70. Obvisouly, you can take less depending on the project, however thats an option.

I almost have a job so hopefully soon you will get my parts.

PS. Saw Mr. Dolla's screen and they look real hott

Sorry Rani,

I've got $70 in his LED's, that's what I paid out of pocket. As I said, it isn't going to break me, but it's $70 I didn't have to spend on LED's that I don't need to have right now. Worst case, I'll hold them until somebody needs a blue conversion done. I'm just irritated, as he called me, and was all about getting this done quickly. I let him know I needed to order his parts, and I called as soon as I ordered them to let him know his total. We arranged shipping dates so I could turn them over in 1 day for him, and he never ships. When I call him, he says, "Gee, I'm buying Christmas presents, and I don't have the money right now". To that, I say......you didn't know it was Christmas time last week? If he'd have called me and said he had a money problem, I wouldn't have been as upset. He never calls, and doesn't return any of my PM's. That tells me he just doesn't care, as he isn't out any money. I guess it was his whole attitude over it that put me over the edge. As I said earlier, that isn't how I do business with others, so I just expect some honesty in return.

Also, C'mon Rani...you KNOW I don't HAVE to be in CA...UPS/Fed-Ex delivers You'll only have the car apart for as long as the shipping takes, I'll turn it over in 1 day for you!

Parts for an LED conversion run typically between $75 and $125...depending on what you want done. If you have an 04-06 and need diffuser paper, it's a little extra. If you want multiple colors, it may be a little extra. The last couple I've done I've had about $70-$80 in parts per conversion. When I initially started doing this, I was asking for parts payment up front, but it was easier to just send 1 bill when the conversion was finished. I figured, if a guy takes the time to call me and set up the conversion, he obviously wants it done.

As far as Raul's conversion (Mr Dolla), it was my first multi-colored conversion, and I think the speedo came out really well. We had a small issue with his radio controls (I used white LEDs with red overlay paper for a red effect, and some of the white is bleeding around the edge of the overlay paper), so I'm waiting for him to send it back to me so I can fix it for him.

I won't say anything more about the guy backing out...I didn't mean to turn it into an eternal gripe, I was just torqued about it and wanted to rant a little.

I just added my grounding wires that I got from 1hawaii50 and it’s awesome! It took some time to get here due to the holidays last week. Add another two days of sitting due to me being lazy and bad weather in Calli. But I did put it in this weekend and its doing the job. I do feels the difference in the tranny, it dose shift a little smoother. And im a believer that it makes ur window role up faster! Big thanks for 1hawii50 for making this mod possible for me! Cant wait to do more business with him!
