WOW! Buy from TATER!


HOLY CRAP!!!! I just bought tater's Hood from his old celica, and this is how it went down:

I had him the money on thursday, on Friday the 19th he shipped it out and I got a call on saturday from ggreyhound saying it was here. He's in new orleans and I'm in Atlanta. I told him it was my b-day and that may have sped things up but the Hood was packed incredible!!!! he had it in a wooden crate with the Hood bolted to the crate and packed with styrofoam to keep it from hitting the wood...then he melted glue around the bolts on the bottom of the crate to make sure nobody would mess with it. I got it and it took me 20 minutes to get the thing out...but there are no scratches, and the thing looks like he clay-barred it every week...I'm proud to say that he is one of the best people I've ever purchased from, and even better than getting something from a vendor...and the quality of his work is that of a master sculpture...this man is serious when it comes to getting a custom part done right.

Thanks again Tater!!!! you rock!!!

^^ haha yeah, his whole car was in excellent shape. i loved the Hood..i know its a $$ thing but if you could have gotten the fenders also they would have looked great together.

kristen and i went and looked at erics car (he basically lives down the street..about 2 minutes) and it's one hell of a car...it's currently sitting in a honda dealership parking lot..unless it sold. they're price tag on it is 22k and since a brand new gts bases at 23k...you can imagine the shape that car is in...its excellent..just as your Hood is thumbsup

yeah...I'm thinking really really hard about the fenders...it depends on how long he can keep them
