PostSubject: LOL the joys of selling parts ! thought this was funny   Wed Nov 10, 2010 2:58 pm

I quite enjoyed this so I thought I'd share

Hi Brett
Received the light today, unfortunately it isn't of a quality that will stand up to normal outdoor use as it's made of the lightest weight metal - similar to a baked bean tin only weaker, has no method of keeping water out of the light fitting and will obviously corrode and be useless very quickly. As well as all that the lens assembly would likely vibrate it's way loose from it's flimsy mounting and fall off. Have you had a good look at these things? Sorry but It is total crap, there's no other way to describe it
To be honest even if the price was $20 it still wouldn't be any use on a vehicle, I'm not being nasty, I know. I have worked in electrical automotive parts supply and in motorcycle parts. It looks real in a photo but it isn't.
Anyway no worries, can you please supply me with a return address and refund the money to this bank account XX XXXX XXXXXXX XX
I'll send it back by parcel post and email a tracking number once i get the address



I especially like the baked beans can part, & the 'looks real but it isn't' Laughing must be a hologram rendeer
It was a bit of a literary masterpiece anyway
I personally think the quality of the light is pretty good, they are standard issue for this kind of pattern/reproduction light. Anyway, can someone make him a 1950's British light that is titanium & fully sealed from storms please? and it needs to be around 80 bucks.
I told him I'll give his money back when I get it back (so I can check if he munted it)

lol!
