If you never intended to sell me the shims... why did you reply back saying
that you "STOCKED" them? Doesn't make much sense to me. If you want me as a
customer you have an odd way of showing it, and not only to me but the rest
of the list. Frankly I don't care who I offer my business to as long as they
are fare about it and I get quality parts. If these 2 bit shims are not
worth your time then "EXCUSE...... ME!" And besides you wouldn't have been
"bailing me out", you would have only made things a little simpler. Do you
think you are the only shim supplier in town? I'll punch my own if need be.
I thought I was doing you a favor by mentioning to the rest of the list that
you had offered to help me out and provide me with the product I need, but I
guess I was wrong.
I think I'm missing something here... I thought this list was meant for
people with a common interest so they can help each other out.
No thanks ED!
Man today is just NOT my day.

<< Yes, it was Don that I spoke to at MM (in the flesh) and he suggested
(strongly I might add) that I use the spacers, but the topic of shims never
came up. I'll ask him about the shims when I go back there this week, I
to go back this week and pick up the rest of my 7/16 wheel studs. Meanwhile
Ed at "Just Brits" replied back to me to let me know that he carried the
shims also, since he's a fellow Lister... I'll give him first chance. >>
Since you have seen fit to "publish" the "repy", leave us "publish"
I replied to your query and I quote:
"I stock them for customers, Drew."
KEY word being "customers". With EVERY front end "rebuild 'kit'" I send 10
shims of thin sizes and 4 of FAT ones. I do not send bill. The customer
gets the job done and THEN I send Invoice.
You bought all you parts else where and want me to bail you out?? NOT!!
All shims are available thru about 4 catalogs and you just have to BUY a
large enough selection inorder to complete the job. Then you may TRY to
"return" the "used" but not "used" ones for credit.
I have GREAT customers including a BUNCH in CA.. They are, without doubt,
FANTASTIC bunch (especially The Witch). I WILL NOT depleat my normal stock
of items needed for this sorta job to a non-customer.
My "stock" and my "knowledge" do, in fact, cost.
