Vendors, Buyers and Sellers

Offroad VW based vehicles have problems/insights all their own. Not to mention the knowledge gained in VW durability.

Could we add a list of STF Sellers in another list and list what they sell? Example coil overs, engine adapters, stock parts, empi supplier.................

Tell you what, I will add that info to their info if they PM it to me. But like I said contributing vendors will get added info. Soon I will lock this thread and delete everything but the first post so get your ideas in now.

Leather,

Here is a supplier I've found for lots of stuff we use on our cars and around the garage. Not a super wide selection but decent stuff at good prices. They ship out super quick as well. Thought it was worth sharing.

Awesome company to deal with. Their website is incredible for finding the proper part. They list all measurements for almost all their parts. They sell tons of fabrication oriented items....

I too must commend Appletree auto they seem to be willing to listen to your needs and answer any questions you might have to make sure you get the correct part. I have dealt with Ron and just last weekend of due to m own fault Wi misread the part description on there eBay store and bought the wrong part. I called and talked to Ron and he pulled my order and stopped it from being shipped. We discussed my needs and he made sure I got what I needed and no what I ordered.

I recommend BugZyla I ordered a custom widened beam from Daryll on a Wednesday and on Friday I discovered that the beam on my drag car was bent ( it was a cheap narrowed one) and I called Daryll he said no problem he would build me a narrowed beam. Over the weekend I had a father and son to look at a Dune Buggy the saw the Drag car and had to have it instead. I now had no need for the narrowed beam called Daryll and once again no problem he would build the wide beam.

He sold me bent thing spindles and wouldn't reply to my emails afterwards. He told me they were good to go and ready to run. They were bent and almost ruined. His packaging was also terrible, parts poking out of boxes. Not going there ever again! Caveat Emptor.

I need to crosspost my endorsement for John from TOS.
here ya go.
I have to start here with kudos for john's patience.
I asked him a bunch of questions via email over the last year, and even though my engine build got sidetracked and delayed due to unemployment, John never gave me the impression that I was wasting his time.

I placed an order with him at roughly 11AM CST, and was amazed when I got the notification for tracking information that same day.

Outstanding.... wait, the total showed differently....... back to the order, and saw that the "estimated shipping" had been revised to the "actual" amount, which was lower.

Cannot say enough about how I will be spending a few extra dollars on each order to get any item from him that I can, to support his level of support for us.
