    I bought RRC parts from him about a year ago. He strung me along for more than a month with tales of a sick family member who subsequently died, then said he shipped the parts but they were returned to him as undeliverable.

    He did eventually send them, but he charged me 50 bucks apiece for power seat controls and the driver's side control was NGF. I informed him of this but never heard back from him. Not surprised that others have had problems with him.

    Here's the info I have on him. He was using the name hue166 on the Rovers North board where I encountered him:

    swmaniscalco@gmail.com, or hue166@gmail.com

    His address is:
    2015 Kensington Drive
    Dayton, Ohio
    45406
    937-684-4128

    I wonder if this is the A$$ that has my TR6 front bumper....I dealt with a Bill something-or-other about 15 yrs ago when I lived in Ohio, he had a ton of British cars in a yard that he said was all sold and shipping overseas. We traded stuff, but I left my bumper with him, and vowed to get me another (later model). Never heard/saw from him again - even though I tried to find him and get in touch.

    I paypal'ed him for a sunroof motor then realized he has one post, then realized his PP name is listed as Don Johnson. Oops, hope its really Don, maybe I can get some cheap Scarab parts also!

    Caveat emptor. That's all I will say about Don Johnson. If you dispute the payment, PayPal freezes those funds. You'll probably get a quick response then.
