As many of you are aware, I've made several runs of exact battery box lower portion. I received a note from a happy customer I would like to share. I'll not include his name, because I don't have permission to use it.
"Thank you again, very happy with your quality of work"
Now why couldn't Snyder, or who ever made the incorrect battery boxes done it? AND, to have the balls to put a Ford script on some of them too! I'm not done yet! Dimensionally they were also incorrect! It's no wonder many T guys are upset with reproductions.
My T-era Father-in-law used to say "I'm going to go do something, ... even if it's wrong"
as he headed out to the garage or yard.
It appears his humorous statement is done with much seriousness by some.
Why do it right when you can just not care enough and do it wrong ?
I have used the expression "it's time to do SOMETHING, even if it turns out wrong"in business many times. In my case it certainly does not mean intent to screw up, it means one is out of obviously good ideas, time to try anything and accept the consequences.
My dad used to say " there's never time to do it right but always tome to do it over"
Why can't these repo guys make it right the 1st time? just takes a little more time to engineer and design and the end result is happy customers.
Good Job Larry, Just goes to prove "If you want something done right then do it yourself" You did it yourself and have made a few new friends in the process.
What really pi$$es me off is when a vendor is advised that a product isn't made or listed correctly and they do nothing to correct it. I have let some of them know of problems with some parts and or listings in the past that are incorrect, some of these go back MANY years, but for whatever reason, they are still listed the same way. I don't get it, if the part doesn't fit what is listed, why not change the listing to show what the part does fit?
I understand that they are at the mercy of their suppliers, but there is NO reason for them to let their suppliers keep making inferior parts if they don't fit. They need to let them know what the problems are, and include that information in their catalog if there is a problem . Sorry for the rant. JMHO Dave
