Since the other thread was locked here is a repost of my experience...

In October 2005 I sent Marc all the aluminum from my brand new XRay FK05 along with some additional Team Tamale items with the hopes to get them anodized Orange. Well he gets the stuff on 10/7 and shots me an email to let me know he has some questions and then says he will get them out in the mail the following week. A couple weeks go by and I ask him where the stuff is, no response, then a couple days later he says something went wrong with the shipping, the package came back to him and I should receive it that week. At this time he also tells me he was repacking it from the original shipping container and it looks like the aluminum wasn't finished drying and if I'm not happy send it back. This is when RED FLAGS starting going off in my mind. Anywho, I get the stuff and it is COMPLETELY TRASHED! He soaked the aluminum in acid and it ate holes in almost everything and ate down the bulkheads so much they were 20% smaller. He said he didnt know what had happened but to send it back and he would redo it. At this time I told him the parts needed replaced as they were trashed and gave him a complete list of the pieces he ruined. I will say Marc replaced almost all of the parts (he didn't replace the body posts). All in all the whole ordeal took over 2 months which turned out to be 17% of the shelf life of the FK05.

Take from my experience what you will, in my opinion I still lost out on the deal because of this guy's inexperience even though he replaced the majority of the parts. I cut my losses (postage, time, and new body posts) and learned from the experience I just don't think this guy should be allowed to continue to freely advertise his service outside the for sale thread.
