I've called and left voicemail, emailed, messaged from his website and also on facebook..
Any other ideas?
Anyone talked to him this week?

I sent him an email on Feb. 12th asking question about parts and have yet to get a reply.
Hope this is temporary. I'm trying to make my "Basket Case" Lakewood more of a basket and less of a case. He has great prices on used parts and since I don't see the car going one, maybe two thousand miles in my lifetime I am only interesting in paying for the value of that minimal journey.

I tried calling the guy numerous times last summer always leaving a call back number etc. Finally did get a hold of him. Talks a hundred mph with a thick accent and I didn't know whether I was coming or going by the end of the call. These free spirit types call you back only when they get good and ready. Good luck and KISS!! eye rolling smiley

Other than not answering the phone and emails this week is he punctual to ship "paid for" items (lately)? I'm trying to figure out if he is quirky (but ultimately comes through) or people have noticed a slip in service? It is a holiday weekend so maybe he is just gone???

FWIW, I ordered a part from him recently and it was promptly delivered..

Emailed with a question about the part, still waiting for a response...

Sorted it out myself....

I ordered some parts from Rafee last October. Ordered on a Friday, they shipped everything the next Monday and it arrived within a week.

His packaging looked less than professional (reused cardboard boxes and old newspaper) but was very well put together and kept the contents in perfect shape.

I ordered a fan bearing assembly from him about a month ago. Came in a few days. Had correspondence via email with not issues.

I got a reply to me email yesterday. While there was no explanation to the 12 day delay all my questions were politely answered to my full satisfaction.

Of course I usually see Raf while attending the Roundup. Another old time California friend that also left the Golden State.

I got tired of waiting, I ordered my parts elsewhere.
