Just to let everyone know jeffs still checking emails and responding. I emailed him on November 13th and he emailed me back the 16 which is a reasonable time for a reasponse especially since hes a busy guy.

I placed an online order on August 11th. I immediately received an email stating the order had been received and that I'd get another when they shipped. So far nothing ... and no response to emails or messages sent on on his website. Phone calls go to voicemail & there is no response. :(

Might be time to check what the time limit is to file a dispute with credit card company...?
Hopefully, he's just super-busy, or took some vacation time (and forgot to put note on his website); seemed like a stand-up guy when i ordered from him a few years back, despite a couple issues I had with the quality of the work.

I received an email! He said he's having problems obtaining the lenses he needs to build the lights. While I get that, it would have been nice to have been told that when, or shortly after, the order was placed.

If I'm not mistaken, MKIV Jetta glass lenses are sold out everywhere (if that's what you ordered). Damn pandemic...

I had the same problems with him, basically sent him a no interest loan. He responded with a text within minutes of going through PayPal. Said he had a set with plastic lenses on the bench he could send out right away, but I declined and asked for a refund because I didn't trust him after being ignored. Then he went camping instead of sending me my money. If it wasn't for being ignored for weeks and not being told he didn't have and couldn't get glass lenses, I would have waited. I went right back to PayPal and spelled everything out. My money came back immediately. It appears he does a lot of buying and selling of electronics on Paypal.

He was answering me just fine this summer. I gave up on the glass and got the plastic - didn’t want to wait any more.

supply chain issues are everywhere, sadly.

Seems like another previously reputable vendor turned sour. I sent some glass MK4 lenses to him two months ago for a light buildup. Doesn't answer phone calls, rarely responds to texts.

I've emailed him texted him like a month ago and no answers, so very poor PR

I reached out through his site and got an email back a couple weeks ago. I replied and haven't heard back yet, but I am not in a hurry to get lights built.

I am sure this is a busy time of year for everyone, so hopefully Jeff is available in the new year.

Old thread but I thought a good one to revive. Midwest is still up and running. I put in an order for my MKIV March 31, 2022. They responded fast with my question about which relay to get. Can't beat made in America Baby!!
