Call Me SIR window visors

Postby mikem2012 » Sun Mar 25, 2012 9:44 am

Call Me SIR said he would have more visors made in two weeks and it has been about two months and no visors. Why is he an approved vendor if not a reliable supplier?

Did you pay him for a service he did not provide??? If not then he is more reliable than half the other guys out there....he pretty much does them himself he is not some big factory and is probably not going to make just one set.......

You haven't lost money.....

BTW I bought a set and they were great!!!!

I myself have a set and they arent the best thing ive seen. all they are is a smoked pics of lexan or what ever material he choose to use with a smoothed edge and double sided sticky tape. i was hoping for something like what u could buy for most other cars where it stuck futher away from the car to allow more air flow. When u get into price tho, by the time u buy a sheat big enuf, factor in time and the double sided tape.... ur saving about $40 but what is ur time worth and he has shipping and paypal included... so it all depends on ur skill and how u value ur time.

I really don't see this as a "site issue"

People get busy so unless you sent him $$ just hold tight and wait for when he has more.

OP: Call me SIR has been here a while and seems like a stand up kinda guy..I'd give him a little bit of time to get your parts to you.

However, if time drags on and you get no response let a admin or mod know and we can assist you. I'm sure "call" has his reasons. Please keep us informed as to what happens.

There is one issue I had with his window visors that would be easy to fix, I should take a picture and bring it up here...

Again the issue was very small so I didnt really put much consideration into it.

They do fit like a glove, it isnt the top curve that is the issue. It is the bottom curve, where it curves in and out again looks a little like a "lump"

I would only change the lower line to match up with the shape of the window, but for the price I'm happy with them. Like most crx parts, just gotta wait until they surface.

You could make your own. I'm not complaining about mine for the price.

i just found this while randomly browsing. All I have to say is wow, I had no clue I was a site Issue.

I'm going to explain this once again.....

I designed the visors and have them produced at the one plastics fabricator in middle TN that will run small batches. They are unreliable, give false completion date projections, and on numberous occasions have royally screwed up my orders. I have no choice but to put on a smile and be at their mercy and hope that my order will get completed if I bug them enough.

I am not a business, I am an enthusiast with the ability to supply other enthusiasts with a part that isn't always available.

So Mr. OP......I do NOT take "lay-away" deposits of "$10-20". I operate on a first come first serve basis.

I have not always been the best at processing 100% of my orders in a timely manner. My work requires me to invest a minimum of 10-12 hours a day. But, I have been proactive and began providing order processing time quotes to ensure satisfaction.

To address the "bump" in the inner design line of the visors, I am aware of it. 20 year old CAD routers can only do so much. The "bump" was a lesser of two evils which I made a decision to take that than a "dip".


Dave, thank you for being my ambasador in my absence.
