I continually get clients contacting me to find out where they sit on my retrofit build schedule...and that's completely kool, you all paid your deposit and you have the right to know...I was a little optimistic in my completion of build dates when I started this venture full time in the fall. I apologize if I said your build would be completed by "insert date" and it isn't or won't.

I'm going to give you an example of how I work. The pair of lights I'm working on now.... last night I painted the shrouds and reflector buckets so I could start assembly today, including fabricating the shroud extensions and permanently mounting the LED halos in behind the shrouds. For whatever reason, the shrouds were not fitting the projectors correctly, causing some gaps that likely wouldn't be noticed, but nonetheless, I knew! Rather than "make due" and say it's fine, I started from square one with new shrouds, extensions and LED angel eyes. Yes, this puts me back a bit, and I will make up for it this weekend. What I'm trying to say here is please bear with me. I've said it once and I'll say it again, I refuse to let lights go to clients that are just OK, they need to be as perfect as I can get them. I know this client would want perfection and I'm sure my clients booked after today want this too.

I promise you, the wait will be worth it....and I will be the first to tell you that I absolutely despise waiting and I feel your pain....

P.S. - I am now booking into April

Faster, mule, faster!!! Some people just don't realize what another man's profession skillfully involves.

I can't wait to see these finished! That is the exact build I am going for except mine will be the 04-08 body style. Looks so awesome!

Those look awesome! I'm glad you do only '09 and up, because I'd probably be spending money that I shouldn't.
