Why would you even think about recommending someone after more than a year of BS and not getting anywhere, even if the work was good? I still don't think you get what this 'Look Out' section is suppose to be about. The point is to let other people know NOT to go to this shop.

After re-reading what I wrote it’s easy to see how you took it the wrong way. While writing my last post was thinking about how I had wished it would have gone down not what I’d do after I got the truck back. I should have clarified but was in a rush to get back on the road. I would never want someone to go through what I have been dragged through regardless of friend or foe. I’m pretty sure people get the gist of what’s going on and can decide for themselves. Hopefully I will be able to make my final post soon cause I’m as sick of this thread as much as you are.

“could recommend him but yeah that’s negative”

I got an update a few days ago and my release date was pushed back till December 5th, which also is a estimated date and not confirmed. Not as upset cause, as they are getting it closer to getting it back to me this time. Looks like front clip should be done soon since they are not doing what we agreed on and cutting corners. As mentioned in my earlier posts, we agreed to a completely tubed front end. If I wanted a simple engine brace and shock hoops. I would have just bought A-arm kit and called it a day. Been done 2 years ago. At this point, it doesn’t even matter cause I want to start over completely. I do have some original and update photos pictures to share.

Something that just came up that really bothers me is. This builder had the audacity to complain to me that he hooked up one of his buddies a back half for 1/3 of what he quoted me and that the owner was complaining about timing. Even though he let him cut in front of me. That was why mine wasn’t completed yet. It’s his buddies fault lmfao. This is the same build was completely rebuilt after coming in 5 months after my truck. Funny a year later, my truck still isn’t done. The bronco they just acquired is almost finished . 2 years, 2 full builds, many in between and yet the same excuses. Am I upset about the cutting in line? No I’m upset about the lying! Not too much longer, this is almost over. So bare with me

Please disregard my last drinking rant to an extent lmfao.

I have finally retrieved my truck. It doesn’t run, steer or brake. I have all my parts except for one thing that I had to dig up records proving that I paid for it already. I was able to borrow wheels and tires from MMW, so that was a big help for me personally.

Being my final update post. I am not here to bash his welding skills, cause I’m actually happy with some parts of it, beams being one thing. However I did not like or expected getting my truck not running, incomplete and in pieces. Safe to say that anyone else would be expecting what I just experienced as a customer either.

Looking at the passenger side B pillar not connected to the frame and the C pillar is spot welded to the frame. I am going to have to have all the work inspected and get assessment of if it’s worth continuing to build or sell. Bumper is going to have to get cut off cause thats not what we agreed on, as stated on the contract. There are is bunch of hardware that are unplugged and scattered all around the cab with random nuts, bolts, harnesses etc etc.

At this point I’m going to have someone go through the truck before I decide to keep it or not. It’s going to take some time but it’s my problem now. I wish I could say there were more updates but this is it! No point of rambling on and I can’t do anything but just move on.

So what is the name of the rip off shop? By the way, that cage mount to the frame. Never ever would be legal as a mount for a roll cage.

Thanks for that, looking at how the cab cage is now.It doesn’t look legit or safe. I have a friend looking through it for me as we speak so we’ll see what happens. I appreciate you pointing that out.

Well time has come, Eric Moore from MMW. Moore’s Metal Works in Hesperia. Unless you riding with Redbull or part of his crew, you will only be used as a stepping stone to advance himself and program. I have heard how great of a guy he is by the people recommend me to him. I guess if your in the circle, your good. If not, tough luck.

Eric if your reading this. You said “ Your trying to ruin my business” No bro you are. No one pays 50K+, waits 2 years just to hurt your business. No one pays to have problems. Granted things happen. I have been more then flexible and understanding. You took advantage of me and my family with no remorse. I know I won’t be the last person you do this to. I really hope this thread comes in handy in the future. Karma is a B and happy know i won’t have to be the one to teach you this lesson.

Drop it off at Currys in Mexicali and have him finish it.
I’m sure not a lot of fabricators are fond of cleaning up other people messes and putting their name on it. I have a what I consider a good friend looking at it at the moment. Thank you for your suggestion

His FB lists "repair" but I think its worth asking and finding out. Hes built quite a few very nice TT Specs and prerunners last year. He wont screw you over either.

I have followed this thread through its life and I think you were more than understanding and flexible with him. Numerous times people asked you to call the guy out and you stayed classy and didn't. I think at this point you are completely justified in doing so. It was probably a smart move to wait till you got your truck back.

Hopefully you will be able to complete it to your liking with someone else.

It would be ok if they welded a plate to the frame.....
