they were my exact thoughts but he totlay denied they were sub quality and just said that they were used by loads of other people so i assumed they were ok, tried to go throught the credit cardcompany but they said i needed an engineers report but i was away so couldnt get it done ut he still insists their good, anyway if anyone could use them for anythin there there for the takin, has anyone else had any bad run ins with this guy or wot, the body work was all crap too to be honest and i only got half the stuff in the end. lukily i managed to get the cash back for the missin stuff.

Maybe you could use them as a paperweight ,a bloody ugly one!!
They are bad ,our apprentices can weld better than that.I think gts have been mentioned a few times on here for poor quality goods and also items not arriving even though paid for.Maybe a good warning to all, stick with companies recommended by others.

I must agree with you there Ash

How the hell GTS is still trading is a mystery to me

So, so many bad things are there for all to see on a number of public forums.....Yet, he still find customers

Just shows the power of the thought of saving a couple of 's

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

I do not have a huge budget for my build and yes, each and every penny I spend has to be scraped together but quality over price must rule the day, even if it means wating that little bit longer

I've just turned the laptop round to show the good lady wife the pics of those uprights and she has just said 'if you ever produce any thing like that it's time to stop making things to sell to other people!'

im sure he made a cracking cup of tea for the f1 boys until they caught hin pinching parts.

little lesson to all. just because you can design f1 parts doesnt mean you have the skill to make them.
