    Hey Brock,

    Any update on this. I haven't seen it show up at my house and I have not seen a tracking number?

    :morewaitingisrequired:Day# 80.
    [the day counting is now just comic relief]

    Brock, no package and no tracking update from your wife (per your post 8 days ago). No update or word from you since you returned.

    If it is in there somewhere, I'm open to just a truthful no BS update.

    Looks great. Kinda wish I hadn't sold my BSD. It only took a couple of years to convince Brock to help me make this mod :D
    He's done an awesome job with it and I know how hard they are to make.

    No disrespect to dnaman, Brock or anyone else here, but it's stuff like this that prevents me from wanting to do work for people in the community.

    I get PMs from members here regularly asking about playfield touch-ups, clearcoating or even full game resoration services and, while I would love to be able to do that, the sheer stress of having somebody tapping their feet while I'm trying to get their project done, still maintain a full time job, raise a family and have a life, is just too much to bear. I got out of the mod business long ago too. I just don't enjoy dealing with the 'public' and too many people forget that this is a hobby.

    I'll content myself with working on my own stuff and doing the occassional favour for a friend; but I've got lots of love (and sympathy) for those that put themselves and their talents out there to make stuff like this for the rest of us. As an example, I usually have to wait 4-5 months for an artist like BGresto to make me a repro backglass from scratch (on average). Communication is very minimal at best, but it's always worth the wait.

    Hi Adriano,

    I appreciate your post and thoughts on this subject. The fact that you share as much as you do, for free to help out everyone in the community and pin-world for that matter is incredible to me. You spend the time to create and above all, document and share all of the details, amazing!

    With regards to this situation, it is extremely unfortunate that Brock has put himself in this situation. He is the one with the FS ads, I just chose to be a customer.

    I see an ad for a mod, send in a payment as instructed eTransfer accepted and have never had a single response back. Nothing to say 'payment received, you are 38th on the list, check this website to see your place in queue' or 'I send out bi-weekly progress updates, hold tight' etc...

    Mike shared that there was an accident and I even responded here to acknowledge and show support. I still had not heard back about anything for quite a while. I then sit quietly waiting, being compassionate about his son's accident and slowly start to hear that others on Pinside are having the same issue, payment(s) sent, zero response.

    I have seen many an instance where those creating mods simply say, 'no money up front until I am ready to ship and there is a wait list so get in line'. You put this on yourself when you accept money up front and expect people to wait, not provide any updates or respond to a couple of communication attempts.

    This is absolutely just a hobby and I can easily wait months for something, the zero direct communication is not acceptable.

    I don't think that I can be the only one thinking that if Brock has too much going in that he should update his ad(s) to say that he is not accepting any new orders until past ones are filled and it doesn't hurt to show a running queue (a la red smoke witch for WOZ). He has built up such a positive reputation to date, from what I have seen. It is quite surprising that he's let it go. This can't be too much to ask for or expect, or is it? (is this unreasonable ;)

    Be well.

    Dnaman, yours should've arrived by now? Let me know

    Guys, I apologise for all the BS, I really do.. Fact of the matter is, life has dealt me some shitty cards this year.. I really don't want to air dirty laundry on the site but I do want to say that I'm pushing through orders and want to take a break from all this for a while.

    Anyone still waiting for parts from me please pm me

    Hi Brock.

    Thanks for replying!

    If you have shipped to my work address I have not received anything yet. Can we track it?
