Fixed for you
One of my pet peaves is the idea of silver carbon fiber. This is aluminized fiberglass, but people will always call it silver carbon...carbon is black.
When ever I say silver carbon fiber I always put "(hexcel taxcelium)" so that if people want to look it up they can. I'm not trying to fool anybody :)

Its cheaper than carbon fiber but its harder to work with because of it being dipped in aluminum.

Not giving you a hard time, just clarifying to people that continue to perpetuate the misnomer :) I also corrected the proper fabric name from Hexcel, as it is also a product I am familiar with and use :) Texalium, and I think its sputtered (powdercoated) not dipped ;)

Your parts look great, I can see that there is a lot of time into each piece.:cool:

Beware of John Perez! He's a scam artist!

I'm from the Lotus forum ;
John Perez, AKA Carbon John, Carbon 1 has been scamming car owners on the Lotus, Lamborghini, Tesla owner’s forums.

This might be him again under a differnt name, he's located in Chicago at:
1104 22nd st.
Rockford, I'll
61108

John Perez still owes me a pair of my OEM front access covers and rear wing assembly.

He has had my parts for over a year now, and have promised to send me my parts and the CF parts; but you’ve heard that story before.

Here’s the last few emails I’ve had with John.

Hopefully I’ll get my parts before the end of this year.


Adam how are you?! I'm so very sorry for everything. I understand that
means nothing, but I feel terrible for stringing this on even more. I
have your package will be picked up tomorrow. When it is, I'll let you
know. It should be around 10ish my time. Maybe 11. AM that is.

I'll shoot you an email then to keep you posted.

Have a great day, hope all is well and you had a great weekend.

John

.....Anyways... I did email the dimensions. Weather you believe me or
not it doesnt matter because here are the dimensions again. 40x14x8.
Thats for all four of the access covers. I'll let you know the
dimensions of the wing this week. I'd like to first just get this box
out of the way. If you can give me the shipping label then that would
be great. I have someone who works with me who can take the package to
FedEx, UPS, or USPS for us. If you'd like me to take updated pictures
for you to show you they are still in the condition they were in
before, and they are still finished and ready to go please do let me
know. I'll unbox them and take a few good pictures in the sun and
flourescent lighting for you.

Hope once you see the quality it will make you feel better about all
of this because regardless of what goes on outside our emails, I still
want you to be happy with the parts I send you.

Thanks!

John

Thanks for the heads up, but we know about him over here. I have also reported him on the Lotus and Lamborghini forums. I know you have seen my post on the thread with your other post. And I believe you have seen my posts on the Lotus forum.
