got my glide, now sending it back! dodgy workmanship
don't you hate it when people don't live up to expectations, I had a fully decked glide with tb built by a very reputable shop, it was built to handle around 1000HP, the thing was painted black but lots of the case wasn't even cleaned properly, ie chunks of dirt, rocks, paint over oil/grease, the case had a 3mm deep dent in the top which actually caused a depression of the case in that area, the whole powerglide experience for me has started out poorly.
Lets just say the builder is one of the most reputable around and priced to match, you would think that they clean the cases before they rubuild them hey, I called the guy and he said that they can't clean the casses to harshly because they might get damaged-what an idiot-total bullshit, he then said he would send me some black paint to touch it up-WTF, who spends nearly 4K on a gearbox and expects to get something that looks like it was assembled/painted by retarded blind people, needles to say he is taking the box back, fitting a new case, and I will get this one unpainted that way he can't skimp on the cleaning. I am VERY pissed at this guy, how can he send something to someone expecting to get away with crap like that, makes me wonder if he actually builds them himself or just lets retarded people do it for him. Total loss of trust for him.
If I get it back and am happy with the product I will not identify the person, but if he decides to argue with me at all, I will post on every single forum I can find and send letters/fax to every single shop/supplier/business I have ever bought from or worked for, telling them (with pictorial evidence of course) that this guy has no quality control at all.
How do idiots think they can do this sorta shit, its like building a motor and telling the owner that the block couldn't be cleaned properly because it might get damaged, who the **** does he think he is, what a .........
Just goes to show that a reputation for doing good work doesn't mean that good work is what you get! He is sooo lucky I live in ACT instead of VIC.
