    I am having the same problem as veedubfreak86 on a parts order placed with Fine Wine Performance. The order was placed back at the end of last year. I PayPal'd in Feburary when I was told everything was ready to be shipped. After a few weeks of waiting, I called to see where my stuff was and was told it was on the way. I finally received the subframe bushings about 3 1/2 weeks ago. I am still waiting on LCA bushings and shift rod bushings. I have called several times over the period of time I have been waiting, with no answers and few call backs. Im with veedubfreak86, I understand everybody is busy, shit happens, etc. But if you are trying to run a business, PLEASE communicate with your customers!

    To Kevin, I would like to get this order closed out, either by getting the rest of my parts (LCA bushings, shift rod bushings) or my money back on the parts listed. Please contact me ASAP to get this handled! I dont want any hard feelings! I just want my parts!
    Thank You

    You should call up the local authorities in St. Joseph, Michigan, and have them stop by his shop to make sure he didn't get eaten by his lathe or something. Usually when people fall off the face of the earth they're either sick, dead, or they're avoiding something.

    I've always wondered about this guy ever since i saw him, his DAD, and another member got into a big ol' bitch fit in kevin's build thread. Sorry to say, but i don't have the greatest impression of this guy and will probably be making my own shiter bushings who knows, i could even make some to sell

    Kevin is a very very opinionated guy and if you get on his bad side good luck. I know the kid gots tons of talent and throws down some mad auto cad skillz but I do agree with the general consensus here. From what I understand he works full time at some performance shop and does a lot of custom stuff and making parts for us is just a side project. He doesn't make it his priority. I don't agree with the money aspect though. Holding money in limbo over 6 months is not very cool no matter what the dollar amount. It's the principal of the matter.

    With that being said I hope Kevin stays with us on the Rev despite all the bullshit that goes on its just a fucking forum and its just words on the internet that means nothing really. Kevin make some really good shit for 190s and he's domestic.

    Disappearing with money in hand is theft.

    Unfortunately I am experiencing similar problems with "Sean". Purchased his 16v fender flares well over a month ago, and can't even get a tracking number or a response from him. I opened a dispute through Paypal. It's very unfortunate. I really wanted those flares, and do not wish to have any bad relationships with anyone on the Rev :-(.

    Geez what the heck is going on? This reminds me of the time a bunch of us got fucked on an exhaust group buy like 5 years ago. $170 bucks down the drain. He got like 20+ dudes to jump in on it. Killed the Rev and group buy have been plagued ever since.

    The last time I time I talked to Kevin on the phone about 5 weeks ago, when he said he was shipping my sub frame bushings, he told me he was very busy and taking a new job in Florida. I hope this doesnt mean hes planning on forgeting about what he owes!

    last I talked to him he was making a move to Fl.

    Not saying anything about him or any other seller on the rev, as I've had pretty decent luck aside from that exhaust debacle, but we could definitely use a feedback section on here for buyers and sellers

    I still trust Kevin and still have my faith in him regardless.

    I did receive my camber plates last year but ended up sending them back to have the bushing changed to a smaller one. So far i have yet to see anything but I have gotten voice mails from him and text messages.

    This is a very unfortunate situation, veedubfreak86 have you been waiting for some parts for over a year?? I think thats very very wrong and am quite disappointed to know there are people who are or were on this forum that are like that, at least make some contact if your busy fine but an email, text or phone call takes a few minutes at most. As for Sean thats also disappointing he was quite an active member iirc.
