I personally witnessed him on the phone with a customer telling them their parts were delayed because they were at the powder coating shop waiting on an order of the color they wanted to come in, when in reality the parts were sitting at his feet in a box and he hadn't even talked to the powdercoating shop yet.
    The disease of spending profits before they exist so you have to use money from new projects to maybe finish the projects of people who are really hounding you. Mix in substance abuse and that system gets very deep. This even happens with larger shops.

    I have been ripped off by plenty of "good guys"... it makes it worse, not better.

    Received an email with pictures and short note on Aug 25th.
    Received another email on Aug 31st with another short note.

    No more email after.

    I sent an email asking for update on Nov 5th.

    Here are the pictures he sent.

    Honestly I'd be sending him an email everyday, if you have a phone number call and leave message after message. If you don't have a phone number keep emailing asking for a phone number.

    By far, I think that was ''only'' like a year out.

    Re: MPGMike, I want my head back!!!

    Yup, almost 10 months since last update and heard from Mike.

    Attempted contact was sent by email on Sep 2014, Nov 2014, & Jan 2015

    I already bought another replacement head and plan to start my rebuild this winter.

    I hate to say it, but I given up. No amount of calls or emails matter. It's always another excuse. "I have this event, I have been busy, I am starting a new job, I've been traveling, etc, etc"

    All I asked for was to pack the stuff up and send the head and check back! Over 2 years ago!

    Next step is to share my story whenever Mike Holler's name is showed up on the internet.

    Well now to see what your time and money got you. Honestly, I don't have a lot of hope that what you paid for will be what you get, but I hope for your sake Harry, it is what you've paid and waited for.

    I'll check the thread, but I thought he was holding out on Johnny for over two years.

    I'm not sure that Johnny got any resolution to that. He got a computer back, but it didn't work.
