Jimbo, sorry to hear of your problems. With time, they should all pass. Just maybe, [u]you are installing too many MODS</u> on you car [] [:0] [B)] [}] and it is "rejecting them" much like the human body sometimes does with an organ transplant......just thought I'd give you something else to think about to take your mind off your pain and suffering! [)] [?]
However, you are not alone in your pain as we all have gone through this at one time or another--sort of like the frustration of doing everything "right" to make sure a new MOD installed with 3M adhesive goes on "straight & centered" (you know, those dash kits, etc.) and when "the glue is set and on for good" it just doesn't look "quite right"! [xx(]

Jimbo, what mods are you having problems with? If the problems are severe enough it might help to hear from others how they solved the problem, or we might be able to weed out some mods that simply aren't worth the trouble.

This week,got my good hood from the paint shop. found out
it was worped not bad,but something I didn't notice until
it was painted and put on. Nobody has said anything about
it,but it bugs the hell out of me.I took off my side spears
didn't like how they stuck out, ordered flat ones and they
are cut wrong so I have to have them trimed. Not a big deal
but I shouldn't have to do it, since they are made for the
Cruiser.Cruiser door mats that don't fit my Cruiser.(driver side)
And more that I can't remember right now.Sure most I can send
back, but I get stuck with the shipping.Plus it's a PITA

I feel your pain, Jimbo. Bad things happen in 3's, so everything should go OK from now on!

Hmmm, did you inform the suppliers and ask them for assistance or replacements? Sometimes if the supplier is respectable they will help out with either a suggested resolution, or adjust the return charges.

If you where livining Canada like I, it would truly be a real nightmare. Believe me. [xx(]

at least 1/2 of the stuff i install needs some sort of adjustment or modification of some sorts. I just figured thats the way it was and deal with it. Ive been really lucky with the cruiser stuff tho, nearly everything works fine without a hitch.
