Well, today is Feb. 11, 2010 and the windows are not here. I've submitted an email this afternoon seeking a status update as the windows were to be sent out on the 2nd of Feb.

I hope to have an update tomorrow.

It's now the 18th and I have to ask.... did you get the windows yet???

If not.... have you been able to talk directly with anyone at SB to see when they're really going to ship them???

I'm not a betting man but I'll wager the answer to both questions is NO.

And that's a shame, although not unexpected.

Unfortunately, you'd be correct. After my status update post on the 11th of February, my father received a phone call that the windows would be shipped out. Yet, I thought I heard the same message on the 1st of February? I do appreciate Streetbeasts for reading this thread and making a call to my father or I every time I post here, but I'm very eager to see the windows arrive at our doorstep.

That's the latest at this point, I hope to have a positive update this coming week.

I've done a lot of research on the fuel line and I'm ready to go forward with it once the weather improves.

Cheers,

Jay K.

Update: Closure.

I have some very good news to report. We DID receive the windows Tuesday.

Regardless of what the general consensus of them is on this website, it must be recognized that they fufilled their obligation to us as owners and for that, my father and I are very appreciative of the Streetbeasts team.

Consider us very pleased and that we can now go forward with all of the parts of our build.

Additionally, for those that have been following my learning curve on the planned use of aluminum fuel line...I'll be shifting over to steel instead and using the curved Summit Racing aluminum fuel line stock for the mock-up process.

Cheers,

Jay K.

ps. I'll be starting the fuel line work on Sat.

I too am glad you finally received your glass.

However, instead of praising Streetbeast for finally sending the parts you paid for and had not received, (and I might add almost a month after they promised they were going out the next day), you should promote this episode as a lesson to anyone remotely contemplating the purchase of one of their kits.

Beware, you may have to contact Streetbeast numerous times before you finally receive the parts you paid for that weren't delivered with your kit. Also, be advised that Streetbeast will tell you exactly what they know you want to here even though they know what they are saying is an out and out lie.

THERE IS A VERY GOOD REASON THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU HAS GIVEN THEM THEIR LOWEST RATING!!!!!

You are fortunate that you now have everything you paid for, many of their customers aren't so lucky.

I was thinking the same thing, restaurant review...

"After waiting for an hour to get our food we were told it would be there in ten minutes. We waited another hour and we finally got our average food, they treated us great, THANKS Jacks Steak house".

Brian and Centerline,

I'd be lying if I didn't say I was disappointed in the way the matter was handled, but I DO have all of my components and I'm happy. At this point, I'm under no obligation to say anything nice, but I will. Guys, I'm more of the glass is half full kind of guy, so I always try to see the positive in every situation.

Thank you Streetbeasts for finally delivering my windows.

With that said I'd like to get this thread back on track and look forward to this weekend where I'll be attemping to configure the fuel line in steel.

Respectfully, please let me focus on the build here and pm me if there is still something that you'd like to talk about.

Thanks,

Jay K.

I agree. Now that you finally have everything the important thing is a successful build. However, I do find it interesting that it took Streetbeast over a year and a half to get you all your parts AND if you hadn't pressed them about it you still wouldn't have everything. End of rant.

So..... show us some pictures, Pictures, PICTURES !!!!

I guess I'll have to buy the wife a Tarus...her Rav4 doesn't have a well shaped hood.

This might be too late for you JGK95, but here is what I use...the channel on one of the supports of my garage door. This pic shows me unrolling a length of aluminum tubing...but works well for just about anything. Second pic is a close up shot and the last pic shows what I end up with. Not perfectly straight but close enough that I can use my fasteners on the frame to keep it in line.
