    I originally stated I would give two weeks for people to contact me, but it has been so long I will be extending that deadline. I also have more in the mix so we are good.

    OK guys, I will explain this one more time then I am giving up.

    Per my original post;

    "2. All customers that sold me their cores, with the understanding they also wanted to purchase a reproduction wheel, will get the first shot at purchasing a single wheel. (I will be holding that number of wheels back, for this purpose.) I will either contact these people by phone, e-mail, or through this board to verify their desire to buy a wheel.

    If you guys want to let me know on this thread that would be great, then we can go over the details later.

    3. The wheels that are left for sale will be sold on a first come first serve basis. If for any reason the run is terminated early then the cut off will be determined by the order the sales were received. Assuming everyone who said they wanted one still do, this will leave approximately 15 wheels up for grabs."

    Now, I have like 30 wheels in the mix, with approximately 15 wheels spoken for by the people that sent me cores. (See #2 above)

    This means that Ajesh, who was the first person that asked for a wheel on this thread (and was not one of the people that sent in a core) was 16th in line NOT FIRST.

    Are we straight now, because I sure hope we are?

    Once I dig out the list I will see if I am still filling orders for the people that sent cores or if I am starting to fill the "non-spoken for" wheel orders that were placed on this thread.

    This BS about not being fair to anyone stops here.

    I am late (as usual) and I am lost. What exactly are you doing? Sounds like a stupid question but, I have learned to keep asking them. I would guess I would be interested?

    Philip, maybe I'll answer for Duane, he seems a bit stressed today. You can tell, 'cuz he went to the colored ink. Maybe 1 year ago Duane said he was going to repro the GSX steering wheel. He asked the board for core wheels to make them and bought them outright. He then said that peeps who gave a core wheel would get first priority to buy ONE GSX wheel. It didn't matter if you gave him 20 cores or one. Only one new GSX wheel was to go to a customer. X amount of peeps that sold core wheels signed on for a GSX wheel. Then Duane posted he had X amount of wheels left for people that didn't give cores, and peeps signed on another list. All this was under the assumption that the mold didn't get damaged or whatever during the run. I don't think making Buick parts is Duane's real job, so he can only mold a few when he has time. Now peeps are apparently getting antsy for some reason. I'm on the list, I'm not bugging him, I know him to be very fair. I, for one, am very thankful for stuff like this, I can wait. Thanks Duane!

    Frank, Frank, Frank. You should know by now that the colored ink is just a keystroke error. In Duane's world, it's only black or white. No color.

    Especially "Pink"

    Thanks for the explanation Frank. I certainly could not say it better.

    I knew going into this project that it would take some time to do, it always does with this particular part. That is one of the reasons why I opted to buy everything outright, so I did not owe anyone any $ and could deliver them once finished. Producing this part involves a lot more then simply injecting a "rubber" part, there are a lot more steps involved. The number of people wanting them was also much more then I anticipated. Oh well.

    ...and yes Frank is right again, my parts business is actually a "part time", "part time" affair at this time, and the same can be said for my mold man. We do what we can.

    Just needed to clear the air so everyone understood how they were being sold.

    The list of the next 10 customers will be posted here tomorrow, and again thanks to all for being so patient.

    PS. I also wanted to add this, people have ordered wheels outside of this post as well. I received orders by phone, e-mail, etc. All orders regardless of how received will be filled in the order I got them.

    I have steering wheels ready for the following people;

    Mark Primosigh
    James P. Jones
    Alan Wander
    Eric Martin
    Owen Martin
    Al Grabo
    Mark Reeves
    Mark Lob
    Tim Goheen

    I need you guys to get in touch with me sometime within the next 3 weeks to complete the transaction. (That is on or before 7/27/13) If I don't hear anything before the 28th I will assume you no longer want the wheel and will go to the next person on the list. I will also be sending out PM's and/or calling the people I have phone numbers for.

    I will be around starting this evening to take your info. Thanks.

    PS. I now have the entire list updated to include everyone that requested a wheel. I have more names then product, so if some people opt out I will continue to go down the list until i run out of parts.

    I am figuring $26 for shipping anywhere in the continental US. This will cover the boxing, insurance, plus shipping costs for most of the country. If I lose a little money for the longer trips so be it.

    Duane Moore,
    I don't remember if I have any wheels not spoken for but if you want I can check and let you know.

    I will have to get in touch with a few of the guys on the last list to see how many are left, and will contact the next group of guys on the list. I will also see when the next batch is ready for pick-up.

    I will check into this within a few days. Sorry, just too much going on right now.
