I ordered some seat mount brackets from them.
I got an initial contact saying they would ship out in 2 weeks. it has been 3 weeks now and no further contact from them at all.

is it worth waiting a bit more for the parts or .....

of course they were not slow in hitting my CC for their payment.

very frustrating, I have the welder waiting to put the roll bar in but want to have the seat mounted first.

I have ordered parts for three other vehicles from three other places and all of those parts are here and I have them installed already.

they don't communicate at all, I have sent a couple emails with no response. I don't think I will be using them again for any parts for sure.

well seat brackets arrived last night. paid for 4-6 day shipping, took 4 weeks.
no communication from them at all while waiting.

one of the four brackets is improperly drilled. (this I could fix on my own)
the other problem is I ordered 17" brackets and received 18".

might have to see if my buddy can throw them on a brake press at work and bring them in a little. (1 1/2 inches)

the brackets do seem heavy duty and once I get them fit or replaced if they can do that in less then 5 weeks, they should work well. would not order from them again.

If you want anything from them to arrive fast buy from there Ebay store front. If you order from there website you will be waiting for a long time or get the wrong parts or not your complete order in one go around.

I appreciate the tip but, I am never using G Body parts again.
finally got an email stating my brackets would be arriving soon, that was after I had the brackets. responded to their email telling them the issues. they said new brackets would be sent along with a return label for the other ones. that was two weeks ago. no communication from them since.

wish I would have asked first before ordering. I got excited about mounting the Kirkey seats in the car.
