yea bear the bumper/armor thing...well i(we) arent the only ones with problems with the vendor, seems a few are trying to boycott him b/c of issues. talked to a guy over the weekend that he sent to bumpers to and both were so messed up in certain ways that he cant use either, and now the vendor wont return calls or emails.....hmmmmm?

Re: 4x bumper

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

yeah that was my main problem. he was pissed that I posted a thread talking about my bumper and didn't want to help me anymore. then after he sent me the lopsided 2nd bumper, he just ignored me. i still have both bumpers, but i can't use any of them.

Can we say, "Bad Vendor Experiences" section on the main board. Seems to be the best place in my opinion.
