Did Darren tell you this?? Because if so then I would strongly suggest putting up a set of pics, with a load of dimensions on them.

He will say anything to make a sale

sorry this has to be said

those are shocking. i would be banging his door down to get my money back rather than trying to sell them on to some other poor forum member/builder.

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.
