The kind Mr. L is getting married soon, so he has a lot of things to get squared away at home.
But, he did find time to order me up some fuel door springs and keeper/stoppers.
I still owe him a couple of clams for his efforts.
Quite a nice fellow, and reasonably priced are his items.
He's good, says my wife.
We'd do business again with him.
Thanks!
Maybe we'll head your way for the wedding :!: :?:

Nice try! No flying in. Drivers w/cars welcome. Mine is on the raod finally and I might just use it as the "limo" for the night.

I recieved my pedal kit quickly and for a great price. No damage during shipping, excellent product. Though Suzuki could invest a tiny bit more into them...

Took me 30 minutes with a set of small files to take off all the sharp edges, and I'm outfitting them with stainless hardware.

Might also get them powder coated, since the aluminum is quite soft, and we have winter boots, sand, and salt that would love to eat them up.

Mr Lamm assisted me with some anti-rattle clips - he sent them to my sister where they have been sitting waiting for me to arrive.

Thanks much Paul

Hey Paul - I've got all the bits & pieces together and back in Guyana now - those clips fit - well, like they should, they're the genuine article ;).

As soon as the weather improves I'll actually put everything together and get it onto the car - even though we don't get the snow down here, December/January is one of our two wet seasons, and this one has been very wet so far.

Mr L has married, and I bought some fragile glass parts from him.
The parts arrived in excellent order (motorized mirrors), and are most appreciated.
It appears that marriage suits him well!

Some members start out selling things, and then disappear... Mr L (swifterthanu) is NOT like that.

I will buy from him again.
He's reliable, stable, charges a fair price, and gets the job done.

Thanks again for the latest transaction.

Thanx again! Also, hope the numbers help. I'll get a quote tomorrow for you.

We missed the wedding, and now he is 'estranged' but still on good terms with his 'Mrs.'.
:thumbsup:
The good Mr. Lamm sold us a rust free vehicle that we couldn't find (rare)
at a price we couldn't resist (secret)
and delivered it as well. (a 4 day drive for him!)

If he made any money on the transaction, it would be surprising.
He seems to do this for the love of the vehicles and not to get rich.

Make sure you check out his 'for sale' threads.
His parts are of the higher/highest quality and he doesn't jack you around.

Obviously, we will do business with him again if the opportunity presents itself.

Solid fellow.

Where can you get this:

this:

this:

and these:

?????

You want free?
Try midnight auto.
You want cheap?
Try your local junkyard.
You want first rate OEM parts usually less than dealer priced or parts your local dealer says are 'out of stock'???
Try our Teamswift member 'swifterthanu'....
He seems to be able to find parts I cannot.
These parts will improve the Wife's toy.
Thanks for this most recent and smooth transaction.

To all,

Over the last while Paul may have fallen on bad times but he is back and has rectified any problems we had in the past.

I will still deal with him because I believe he deserves a chance to become what he was before the crap he went through. Best wishes on the future Paul and it's good to see you return.
