    Thank you. I was just putting together a post to continue the thread when I found this. While I have been openly critical of David's business model, I felt that closing the previous thread was unfair to David and his efforts to make good on his back orders. Also, in the interest of fairness, people who received their orders in a timely fashion should feel free to post to that effect here. A complete picture never hurts anyone.

    TB tends to close threads after 1000 posts (sometimes it goes over), it had nothing to do with SGD as far as I can tell.

    It will unless the flaming that was going on at the end of part two continues. At least I hope so.
    And no, I don't have any orders from David but I've had tons of help from him with my pickup winding issues.

    If internet "flaming" keeps him from fulfilling orders then there are much bigger issues here than him not being able to keep promises.

    on 11/26 David assured us:
    "Ok everybody, here's what I'm going to do. I'm finishing up a batch of pickups. Some are on the list. Some aren't.

    They are all late. After this batch I'm starting at the top of the list posted here and working my way down. I will do a minimum of five items. I'll try to do more.

    I'll post which sets I'm working on."

    That was 2.5 weeks ago. Perhaps people are not clearing themselves off the list, but I'm not seeing the progress.

    He knows. I have been on him for a while and got really hot under the collar last month after some issues. We are working it out and I fully expect the pickup to be back in my hands before the new year (He needed some time to get a replacement pickup cover.)

    I won't be posting details of our conversation unless I don't get the pickup back this year, at which point I will post details in a new thread and then take some serious action. My story would add fuel to the fire, but I am patiently waiting for him to make this right.

    I don't mind waiting for the order because it is complimentary in return for letting him borrow the pickup. I paid under $500 for the original Wal pickup and it will be up for sale once I get it back.

    I'm sad to report that after some positive communication I have not heard a peep from David in two weeks since he said he'd be shipping that Wednesday.
