I agree, looks like a very well made product. thats why i ordered 2 pairs. payment sent, but being on vacation and making payments sucks.
bank called me, said that a unknown ip address was trying to get access to your account.
that was me at the library. now i am on the wifes smartphone.
awaiting the latches.
kudos to the maker.

I will try to clear this up....the bank called me about my paypal account, telling me that someone was trying to acess my paypal account from a unknown location.......the location was in british columbia, not my hometown......they redflagged my account for out of province use. :x :x no worries, it was cleared up and they said payment was processed. but they said it might be 5-7 days. because i am out of province.

Got mine! Fantastic! Thank you!

I've always wanted to try anodizing aluminum. This seems like the perfect time.

To anodize you will have to polish them really shiny. But the two Inside nooks will stay with the foundry finish.
Is it really Worth it? There is such a small visible surface that is hidden anyway by the sun visor.
But...if you reaeaeally think that those are two jewels for your car, why not?

Thanks everybody.
i like it when things are well planned out and comes to fruition.

Unfortunately my day started on a bad foot as someone made a chargeback on my Paypal account,
He says that he paid twice.
And of course he received the catches.
Fortunately this will be resolved quite simply when Paypal looks at my account.

Like I stated before,
Business is based on trust.
One small "itch" and the way of doing things change, and unvariably costs go up. This is sad.

As I do not have the gentleman's e mail address, I'll post this here.
All those who have ordered have received a picture such as this one when the catches have shipped.
