What is the record number of down votes for an OP? So far this guy is close to 50 and I wasn't even one of them.

300-400 at least I think.

Would love to know how many extra orders they got out of this “avoid this company” thread lol

I did not order anything, but I just checked the site out.

I’ve got two sets of cab decals from them that I wouldn’t have ever got anywhere else. Can’t complain at all about their work. Overseas shipping is always slow so you just got to wait it out. Also didn’t see anything wrong with their response to OP. Will buy form again and again and again.

I also ordered JP side art that’s close to what the LE has which nobody else carries.

Quoted from gblack:

Mine was stuck in NY customs for about 2 weeks and just got notification it’s moving again stateside.

Yeah I took the advice from Pete in the screenshots, gave their customer service a call, and opened an email case via a web form on the USPS site and a day later it shook loose from Customs and will be here in a few days.

Yeah, I'll second this. Could have been a coincidence but I called usps and next day it got through

My package finally cleared customs and got through the Queens distro center on 7/14. "In transit" with zero updates or tracked movement since. I hate USPS. In fact, I see that Pinball Life is ceasing any USPS use until further notice b/c of absurd delays and lost items recently. I get it that things are slow right now. But come on.

Just wanted to update that these came in and this is by far the best art for the JP. The material is also very forgiving as stated. I knicked it a little and came right out with some heat. It’s very similar to the LE art so it blends with the back wall of the playfield great. Well worth the wait.

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

To resolve the last issue, I had to write to Mr. Fields, Owner of Fedex.

FedEx is a publicly traded company.

The founder of the company, Fred Smith, is still the CEO.

There is no guy named Mr. Fields who owns Fedex.

For a damn Hollywood heat build??? Oh man the next day air cost alone would cover the cost of the whole build....

I have an order placed with Retro refurb pete and I know its probably going to be here around the end of September, he did a great job of updating the order was made and shipped a few short days after I purchased I simply reached out and asked if they could update shipping and they did. I too get carried away with sellers not responding once the money has exchanged bank accounts but this guy has been dealing with the same situation as we all have this year and is still doing his very best to provide a service to his customer base no matter the issues with his country's currier services and ours here in the US.

I don't like the idea of someone making a carbon copy of my creative work but if they want to make their own rendering of my concept thats a form of flattery... I know in the past Pete had bally williams decals available but HE NOW has all
original concept work or updated original art for some data east machines from my estimation which is great for others who want to refurb their projects with high quality decals or even a set of art blades etc. I had to order his JP art blades because they are 100% the best resemblance art blades to sterns LE ONLY art blade but they updated it with the JP JEEP! Also had a nice set of premium sunset style blades which look very much the same as their LE style but just have the sunset style art seen on the premium cabinets... but I feel the LE style art with the rain and daylight aspects match the playfield better than the sunset look would have. But maybe I'll kick myself later on that one.

Has the O.P. realized that his issue is with customs and society as a whole due to Covid 19? Has he realized his little temper tantrum worked as well as a broken condom? Whether any of us like Retro Refurbs or not, they were in the right to tell this jackalope to pound sand with his demands? Did the O.P. end up getting his order?

Hey , how about changing the title of this thread? What do you say there ferraristyle ?

I bought these two sets of side art on july 28th its been less than One month durring the worst pandemic the WORLD has seen in IDK how long and they managed to get these out within seven business days and thanks to his advice on making a claim to customs I had my side art within two business days of being released from customs! I saw it arrived at customs and I waited six business days then I opened the dispute stating it had been there for over a weeks time and then two days later BOOM! Im looking at it! Best side art for JP I'VE SEEN! I HAVE A PREM AND RETRO HAS A SUNSET PREM VERSION AS WELL BUT I FELT LIKE THE ORIGINAL VERSION LOOKED BEST WITH THE ART ON THE PLAYFIELD AND THE BACK BOARD ART WHERE THE TREX IS... May kick myself later now that I think of it, the sunset version looks awesome and I think looking at the side of the cabinet and the sunset side art would really look great. Either way I'M IN LOVE WITH THEIR WORK!!! I LOVE MY TRON ART AS WELL... I WILL GRAB MORE FROM THEM IN THE FUTURE 100% THEY ARE EASY TO DEAL WITH AND THEY DO THEIR JOB THE BEST THEY CAN, AND OWE NOBODY A REFUND FOR ANYTHING THEY CAN'T CONTROL.
