When I hired a contractor to finish building my house, we had a contract. Upon completion of our house, i went thru the list with the contractor, found MANY pieces compromised and/or neglected. This became my punch list. Final payment was not made until i was satisfied. Every contract i have ever signed for work to be performed was handled in this fashion.

I am not putting blame on Lenny, Don or any other party involved.

Nor am i putting any judgement on work performed / received.

I DO know, that once you accept the product, you have essentially agreed that you are satisfied.

Maybe the 66 was not completed to Lenny's satisfaction. I understand this from the posts, but this does not put blame on only one party. Both parties must accept responsibility for workmanship and satisfaction upon delivery.

REGARDLESS of the builder, there are ways to settle this without mud-slinging. . .from either side.

i guess this means i'm taking a neutral stance? YUP!

I take every story. . .every fact, spoken or not. . .and incorporate it into my learning experience, and hope that it helps me to better-build my own 89.

T-shirt design isn't the only thing this ahole is stealing from Shaggy.

Remember how Shaggy shared us the plan for grappling hook that ejects from side mechs with diagram two weeks ago?

Batmobile

Somehow this sack of shit claims same grappling hook is in the works a week later after Shaggy's post.

Batmobile

Link to thread http://bit.ly/14XatSI

I asked the moderators to move the side mechs to members section so no further design can be stolen.

I know Shaggy and I must say that you cant ask for a nicer guy. He helps with whatever he can and offers this assistance to us without hesitation. Then you have this POS that comes on our boards and steals his designs and ideas which has to piss him off. Wish there was something that could be done to stop him.

Seems I have a bat in my belfry

Wow that is a shame Im not sure is Don just yanking your chain here Shaggy?

I do like Don and I hate to think this is a for real deal . I was really hoping to see Don ,Shaggy

and elhefe colaborate on some of this stuff  all you guys got mad skills and there is no reason

to be at each others throats. I wish I had 1/10 of shaggys puter skills or Dons design and fab

capabilities and Elhefe 3d translation tallant. Guys there are tons of items on these cars and

ideas about these cars that there is more than enough room for you guys to all do your own thing. Don your the 66 master  I am sure you could do a killer 66 shirts or even you own take on the 89  And as far as crispy bodies goes you know when you get one of these replicas no

matter who it is from I would still turn it upside down sand the crap out of it and add more

glass just for my own piece of mind I think having just a nice shape to start out with is A

whole hell of  lot easier than trying to carve one of these cars. Now I have yet see a working disk door from any of you guys .
