Does Datsun-Roadster-Parts still exist?

Post by gnoplos » Wed Aug 14, 2019 3:18 pm

I tried putting a couple orders in a while ago and haven’t heard anything back. I know it says they’re a little backed up but I put the order in over a week ago and they haven’t contacted me for payment yet.

Has anyone used them recently?

My experience is that he’s very responsive on the stuff he sells on EBay, not so much through the website.

Yikes! Hopefully they’re able to ship my order sometime soon. It’s been roadster weather in Maryland the past few days and the cooling system is torn apart!

I think they are still working on all the orders out in while in the moving process. I've had great luck with them.

Does anyone know where they are moving? Are they staying in the same town/area?

They are normally very responsive whenever I have ordered something, eBay or direct. Paul is good at following up in a day or two after I have ordered something. Guessing they are tied up.

I placed an order on the website in July. Took a few days, but I got an email invoice, and the parts not long after. It was a small order, so maybe that helped with the speed.

Paul is a super nice guy. I have never had a problem ordering either from Ebay or his website. They are in fact in the process of moving plus life gets in the way sometimes. Visiting relatives and such. He visits this site pretty regularly. I am sure you will hear from him sooner than later.
