Just Dashes and Pay It Forward Dash Scheme

Postby mraitch » Thu Apr 20, 2017 9:46 pm

I have NO financial gain in this, it is all about facilitating our community in its efforts to keep our cars on the road and looking good.

Background.
Eliza caught on fire and trashed the dashpad.
Phil gave me a trashed dash which I had refurbished at JD.
Takes 8+ weeks, but I could still drive Eliza while waiting.
Then I offered MY old dash (freebie) and I would deliver MINE for finishing and then P.I.F. would occur.
[b]Done[/b] to Gregg in Oregon.

How this works.
Instead of waiting for JD to fix your dash etc. with their 12+ week turnaround - which means your car will be off the road, give me a call.

If, I have core parts, which is my intention, then I will take said core around to JD.

You will make financial arrangements and when all is done (new dash delivered etc.) send me the'core' parts for the next person.

The costs (shipping etc.) are about the same, but the effective turnaround (inasmuch as you don't have to remove your stuff YET) is that you get to use your car for the 12+ 'waiting' weeks.

I have NO financial interest in this.

I benefitted by Phil's initial generosity and thus I thought I would create something of a pay it forward for dash board etc. recovery.

FWIW

BTW - since I asked for this 'area', I thought I should be the first to post something in it.

As those at Solvang will attest, (having seen the before and after) while JD isn't cheap as opposed to dash caps, they are seriously worth it.

That's super cool of you Pete and a great idea! If I decide to go the JD route (gulp) I'll be in touch.
