Title: Nasty Wendy's GN goes up in a ball of fire at GBodyParts
Post by: SuperSix on July 29 2013, 12:34:43 PM
I won't copy and paste the post - if Wendy decides to, that's up to him her.

http://www.turbobuick.com/forums/threads/i-have-a-true-story-to-tell-how-i-lost-my-gn-gbodyparts.398985/ (http://www.turbobuick.com/forums/threads/i-have-a-true-story-to-tell-how-i-lost-my-gn-gbodyparts.398985/)

I think one could say I am a bit biased, but if I post on TB.com what I really think, I am sure I would get banned.  :013: :013:

I would  bet Weaver has no insurance, that's why you aren't getting info - he's probably one of the most inept business owners I have ever encountered.

If it wasn't for customers covering his ass because he "supports the community" (My post about that here: http://www.turbobuick.com/forums/threads/what-do-you-think-is-reasonble-customer-service.397994/page-2#post-3248511 (http://www.turbobuick.com/forums/threads/what-do-you-think-is-reasonble-customer-service.397994/page-2#post-3248511)) , more wouldn't buy from him. He hasn't gotten a nickel from me from the thousands I have spent on both TRs, and never will.  :icon_fU:

I am surprised he is still in business, actually.
I think the only reason may be the huge selection he offers to different G body cliques.

I did not mean to pollute the other thread.

I do not go there so I guess I will not know unless he/she posts up.

Wendy PM me if you have time.

I am neither surprised nor shocked about the situation.  It is what I would expect given the track record.   I am also not surprised to see those jumping in to explain why it is all the car owners fault.  Same old shit.

I've seen other "mistakes" that Brian has made. Hopefully he'll make this right but for some reason I doubt it will happen. One of those mistakes was a custom turbo that was created but the owner of the turbo want the original he sent in for copy wanted it back. It went missing but I had an idea of where it was. Told the owner who to contact and he got it back but it cost him. Not the best person to deal with and Brian has offered me a position at his shop but I politely turned him down. :icon_fU:

This is INSANE!!!! You mean to tell me that tb.com is governed by biased people who feels it's their way or the highway?  Why would the thread get locked? Because everyone has their own opinion? Im still trying to figure how big of a DICK you have to be to blame the damn car owner...Really? How is it the owner's fault? Fuk outta here with that BS. Many ass whoopings would've been dealt out to that dude for that(although I know it wouldnt bring my car back).

Not completely true Steve. There are some threads with criticism of vendors but they do try to resolve them. The worst vendor over there has gotten Shane to close threads that didn't look good but how many vendors only use email only and no phone for a business? That makes no sense at all but that's the way it goes I guess. :icon_kidra:

Damn.  Its so many great guys on THIS board. I wish more would migrate to enjoy the freedom and laughs that we have. I went and logged into tbs.com because I hadn't been there in a while. Would you believe I've been in the TR scene for 7 years? Not really important I know but just thought I'd share.  Back to the matter at hand though. That irritates me that vendors get protected. If you do good business, you wouldn't need protection.

Sure hope this gets worked out at no cost to you, nasty.
I got some interior parts I would donate if it comes to that.

I know full well, Charlie. What hasn't been mentioned is that I went up there and lived and worked with him while his shop was still at the turkey farm outside of Baltimore.

Nice place - didn't even have working plumbing.

As I said on TB.com, I let it go, I am sure he will pressure Shane to get me banned. Whatevs.

While Shane is one of his best friends I doubt he'll ban you unless things get worse. Just try to stay out of it and let Clay and Brian try to get this resolved, which I doubt will happen for some reason. :chin:

Thanks for the support guys.  I'm sure you all have seen a burned car before.  Rust gets into places that you'll never get it out of.  I don't think that body will live again.

Sorry bout your car. Hope it all works out. As a shop owner it is always one of those things that is in the back of my mind. I launched a brand new Ranger off my front end rack, had to pay it all out of pocket @4k. It stings, and I'm sure Brian is probably gonna prolong the agony as long as possible. It appears there was nothing you could have done to avoid the accident. You're right about fire and rust, ironically, sorta like water damage.

Had to go the whole back to page 2 to see who you were even talking about. As the World Turns. The thing about this whole thing, if Brian's insurance company sees that a customer was helping and in the work area they are not gonna give one of these: :D .

They are deleting posts. If I hadn't said I would step back - I would recommend that the others in the thread that complained about other problems with dipshit make their own threads in the feedback section.

These vendors need to be held accountable.

I am the one deleting the threads Mark, Everyone has been told to stay out of it until Clay and Brian resolve this and rather than ban someone I'm killing their posts off. I'm not doing this because I'm mean or on anyone's side, but it's just like a cop at a domestic situation. Those that get involved are looking to aggravate a situation and get in a dig, whether it's for Brian or Clay. If this was in the projects the paddy wagon would be called and people would be arrested for inciting to riot. :068:  This has just about gotten me fed up to the point of leaving the boards in general because of the way the vultures are trying to get a shot in. :013:

Charlie,   for God sakes, stop deleting post.  I love you and all, but you take this mod crap way to serious.
Clay waited years before he even decided to post his experiance with gbody.  If its a public forum, even with a feedback section.... they should be allowed to dispute publicly if they decide.  Nobody is forcing either one to post in that thread.
 And unless Clay ask nobody else intervene on his thread but Brian, people should respect that.  Otherwise, members should be able to air their opinions. 
If the owner of the site decides he doesn't want anybody commenting in a thread on his public forum, he can delete/lock/or prevent anybody but the two involved to post in it   :cheers:

Shane's already said keep the hell out and I have said the same thing Aaron. It's between Clay and Brian to resolve this but there will be another thread started soon to hopefully help Clay out. That's all I'm going to say at the moment but this may help to get him back in another Regal.

So if other people than Clay and Brian start voicing their opinions in the "new" thread....are the mods gonna jump in and throwing their weight around in that one too?  :rofl:   :rock: :D
 
My moderating in the babes and cars section here should be the role model for how every moderator should be. 
 
Now....
 
Can you bribe me with Jagermeister or a fifth of rum chata to delete somebodys post there that you don't like?
yes.
 
Will I consider deleting or editing threads there if you offer me cash?
maybe.
 
Will I give special treatment in that section if you give me free buick parts?
most likely.
 
Will I delete your post or request a meeting with supasix to get you banned if you say your going to post a pic of a nude woman with a buick....and then not post it?
Absolutely!  Theres just some things you shouldn't joke about.
 
 
 
I think Clays decision to take pics is what is going to help him more than anything at this point, jmo.

I have a hard time believing the fire inspectors inspection was more then 2 min on the car after the fire was put out.   I bet they call most car fires electrical.    My dad had a 99 buick regal gs that we'd gotten the pre recall letter from gm not to park it inside because of the valve covers leaking and causing fires.  It used to stink whenever you came off the highway from the oil burning.  Then a few weeks later it burned up in the grocery store parking lot.   Fire inspector said it started from wiring.
It would be different if someone was hurt, or a building was burned up.   They have to put something on the paperwork so I can't imagine he's gonna make a massive effort to figure out where it started.


sucks about your car wendy.  I hope the other thread helps you out.

I don't understand all the 'he said/she said'....   This is America...   and in America the property owner is ALLWAYS at fault and liable even when they aren't.   In this case, a car full of combustibles being welded on INSIDE OF A SHOP, during business hours by the SHOP OWNER,  burned to the ground....     How the hell do you spin that.

If anything I would image the fire marshal or the EPA would be up Brians ass for safety procedures (or lack thereof) for it happening no matter who's fault it is.

You guys are missing one of the key factors here. Brian has a serious drinking problem and he's in a unique position with the business. We've all had dealings with people like this and if he doesn't take care of it he will be no better than Paul Castelbuno. If Clay posts the info on other boards that deal with G body cars it will hurt his business for years to come.

Anyone that knows him knows he drinks too much. Loves the Corona..

And before he rails on me for being a drunk right along side him when I lived up there - I quit drinking ~ 3 years ago, I handled my issue, he needs to handle his.

Personally, while it really sucks Wendy's car is gutted, the discourse that is going on is good for the "community". Too may elephants in the room for too long.

This REALLY makes me sad because my car is in the shop to get the weatherstrippi ng done, and the guy sent me pics of how damaged the T-Top area is. Looks like I'm going to have to find some new EVERYTHING for that area due the rust.  Im starting to dislike this car very much....so now to place an order with gbodyparts.

Don't worry about it until you pull it apart.

It's a bitch from what I see, but looks like you cuold just cut and weld in mild steel repair panels.


:P


I will be doing the same repair on my 87 T, and I am sure not looking forward to it either.

Clay - given two shells, one hardtop, one T-Top - would you want another T-Top car?

if it was me? hell yeahh but i would just hire a new body guy thats into fixing cars instead of burning them.
i have owned another T-top car and lost the rust fight. yet i picked up another T-Top car with the same issues but i intend to win this fight or drag it for as long as possible.
no better feeling dan pulling off the tops and going for a drive

I agree about pulling the tops off and riding, but this is going to cost me a lot more than what I expected.  Initially, I knew the plates where shot, but the guy said he could make those. But the shit is rusted down so bad. I'll post up some pics when I get home and start another thread. I just want my car back.

Not a hijack at all..

Don't worry about it until you pull it apart.

It's a bitch from what I see, but looks like you cuold just cut and weld in mild steel repair panels.

  • Don't let GBODYparts do the work
  • Remove the interior
  • disconnect the battery
:P


I will be doing the same repair on my 87 T, and I am sure not looking forward to it either.

Clay - given two shells, one hardtop, one T-Top - would you want another T-Top car?


Before this ordeal with GBP I would say yes to another T-Top but not now.  For most of its life with me my car slept outside in the driveway.  I've sinced moved and have a garage to keep it in.  That makes me think that I'd have a fighting chance with T-Tops now but with GBP being the only place to acquire those stainless parts should you need them I'd rather do without them.

I just checked the price on those pieces..... :hmm Im between a rock and a hard place because we didn't know how bad it was UNTIL we took the shit off. T-Top parts are damn near IMPOSSIBLE to find, and its insane that the T-Top components will cost me almost $1k in parts, with no more than 30 lbs in total weight. I really want to get rid of this car, but admire the WH1's. :(

Phil, you can always convert the car to a hard top.  You just need a good regal donor roof, and they aren't that hard to come by at the older yards.  I actually know somebody local that could hook you up. 
In reality, because of the rust and leak problems usually associated with t top cars, you may actually increase the value of the car.
You would just have a good  reputable and experianced body shop to do the swap for you.

Hey Supersix, there are a couple of pieces that have a lip on that requires a soft ninety degree bend. Soft only because the piece is also angled. Weird to explain via keyboard. Im goin through my options now. Keep you all posted.

Maybe we need to get something together as an otpion to getting your shit burned to the ground by a moron that thinks he can weld.

I wonder how many beers he had before welding?

The sad fact is that Brian is the only one that's reproducing body parts in most cases for our cars. The only other guy that really makes anything for them is in Canada and all he makes is the mounts on the bottom of the car for the body bushings. The rest is exclusive to G body. :O

Just figured it out!!  Im going to buy the header panel for sure, but that's it.  The guy doing the work said he would fab up the rest of the pieces I need. Told em I'd rather pay for material and his labor vs paying online for them. Said he'd take care of it! I'll keep you posted, as I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I would NEVER buy a repro item like that, regardless of where it comes from. I will bet it's way off, and will take considerable work to make it fit. It's a LOT easier (and cheaper, after 100 hours fiddle-fucking around) to chop a hardtop and install it in place of the t-tops.

Well, I should say I would never buy something like that from a shady vendor like Brian. If Classic Industries starts repopping parts, I would buy them.

Thats the same thread i am going to follow. hopefully this winter.
Maybe one of you big dogs can try and work something out with James From Hubbards AKA impalaparts.co m
He sends complete cars to china to have them reversed engineered. He has the connections maybe he just needs a push towards G-bodies.

I really want to get rid of this car, but admire the WH1's. :(
Phil, let me check before I commit to this but I may have the complete kit and I'll give it to you to prevent you from buying it from him.  I remember him losing track of at least one of the pieces while I was there but it wasn't a big issue because he was going to grab what he'd lost from my kit out of his inventory.  Maybe all the parts came back together maybe not.  I'll make you a soft promise of checking tomorrow and letting you know.  I have a lot of chit to do tomorrow so it may be the next day.  Even if the kit is incomplete the part(s) that are missing wouldn't be hard to fabricate as they were on the simple side of the design.

I should have stated this.  I planned to offer it to you if Phil decides a different route.  I offered him first because he declared need first.  I don't care who gets it as long as it prevents GBP from getting the sale.  Maybe it needs to be sent to China to have knock offs made.

$599 because I had already purchased the weatherstippin g seperately. That kit looks nice, but that $599 plus the $249 was pushing close to $900 after shipping. Possibly more. Thats where the 1k in parts came in at
Title: Re: Nasty Wendy's GN goes up in a ball of fire at GBodyParts
Post by: Charlief1 on August 02 2013, 01:43:52 PM
Since the parts are stainless GM can't do much. The patent rights would only be in effect if the parts were mild steel and since this is an improvement it doesn't violate the original patent, plus I'd bet GM didn't renew their rights on the original design. All it takes is to make 1 change of a part and the patent rights don't apply. :icon_fU:  However, if Brian didn't patent or copy write the parts anyone can make them. :rofl:

Phil I would MUCH prefer if you got your guy to make the parts.  Use whatever money you were thinking of donating to me to go towards the cost of that guy making the parts.  This way I can give my kit to TurboPower68 and prevent 2 sales of that kit from GBP.  It is yours if your guy can't do it but if he can then lets make a point to GBP.

EDIT:  I just caught up reading everything and see that you've already donated money.  I wish we could have facked him out of two sales.  I'll get what I have together, let you know whats missing, and get it out to you.

BTW for the Newbees (how ever thats spelled) Nasty Wendy sounds like a horrifyingly ugly girl her voice is so deep that she makes the allstate guy sound like mike Tyson in comparison.

I can't believe what happened and how you are so calm.  Are you sure your not Canadian?

I wish you the best, Clay!  But with the way Brian is talking it doesn't look good.  And I like how Micale's Army jumped in there, what the hell does he have to do with anything?

If I have my history correct.  Cajuns have some Canadian heritage.  Technically because I'm black I don't have that heritage in my blood but because I've grown up immersed in the Cajun culture I'm sure it has rubbed off on me.  What I have learned from other experiences in life is that when situations get intense and emotions start to drive your actions your best ally is a calm head.  He who thinks clearest when shit is hitting fans usually comes out of said shit storm cleanest.

I will bet he had no insurance.

Even if he does have insurance.
I wouldn't even turn it in.....he has the parts to repair it. Man up. Sometimes the price of business sucks but has to be paid.

ok I only made it to this post. I really don't need to read more  :icon_eyes: There is no way I would turn it in eithier !! On both ends!!!

  where do I start....
#1.. DON'T WELD WITH AN INTERIOR IN THE CAR PERIOD !!!
#2... THE WINDSHIELD WOULD HAVE BEEN JUNK EVEN IF IT DIDN'T BURN UP.

  ......Waste of time trying to sue someone. Lawyers fee's will add up faster than your car on fire !! 

.....Ins co would have totaled the car with either of you guys puttin in a claim. The value would prob pissed you off to. Car needed  paint . Rust issues. Ins co are not blind and stupid as some think. :icon_redface:

..... Car is an easy fix.. Brian should give ya a shell and you do the labor and paint work.. Over an done with . I could do the car is a month very easy. Then have it painted.

looks like the shop is going by fire Marshall findings. I wouldn't put much stock into that, as no one was hurt and in their "fire Marshall's" mines who cares for a bunch old car stuff. I bet most car fires are started via electrical issues so why not go with the numbers? fire dept. point of view??
I bet that if some one was hurt in that fire (thank God no one was) the fire dept. would have done a much better job in their investigation of what actually started the fire.
the shop knows that the fire dept. will testify to their "findings" and they are the up most fire professionals. How do you counter that? Mechanics welding procedure dos and don'ts?? so what the FIRE people will say, yeah the proper procedure wasn't followed but that doesn't mean it was the cause of the fire. just playing devils advocate. I wouldn't gamble on a judges only decision i would try and get a jury trial. But thats gonna cost some dollars for both sides.

Well a certified mechanic could be used to testify that the proper procedure for welding on a car involves disconnecting the battery before beginning to avoid any problems.  Was/is Brian a certified mechanic at the time he was working on Clay's car, if not then there is fault to be laid.

Next, it is common sense that if you are going to be doing any welding around combustible materials that you remove them before you start; especially if the area you are working on is catching fire each time you go to weld.

Lastly, if the surface being welded is catching fire it has not be prepared properly for welding and time should be taken to rectify the problem before continuing.

I find it very suspect to believe that this was a coincidental electrical fire, unless the battery wasn't disconnected and the welder overloaded some wiring in the car.  I am not an electrical engineer but, I am certain there is a cause and effect associated with running that many amps/volts through the stock electrical system while welding.

What I don't get is why he hasn't used his vast resources to solve the issue?  Sending Clay a clean chassis with the replacement parts should be well within his means and abilities.  That has to be cheaper than risking your reputation and business, right?

Hell, it might even make you look like a champ.

Post by: earlbrown on October 25 2013, 01:30:31 PM
He did offer Clay a replacement chassis.....

......one that needed the VIN plates removed and Clay's plates installed in their place....


Needless to say, that wasn't a viable option.

He's shady as shit, I wouldn't doubt if he sells parts from know stolen cars - Useless drunk.

What was bad is trying to keep the vultures out of the thread. I had a bunch of guys that got mad at me because I was deleting posts that had nothing to do with the thread. The last post tells it all though. I'm glad I didn't go work for Brian when he wanted me to. :cheers:

I think people should be encouraged o make their own threads in the feedback section outlining their experiences with him.

Oh lord. That would be a clusterfuck of his cheerleaders.     Years ago, I noticed many threads about him where he could do no wrong.....     

  even when he did.

I had no clue of any connection between you and him until I saw the nasty wendy thread.  Some things definetly make sense now.  I've always had good experiance with Brian and gbodyparts, and I think I have even praised him here a time or two, and you never gave me any grief about it.  so I think that was pretty cool then, on your part.
 
I met Brian at bg and he seemed to be a great guy to hang and bs with. 
Nasty wendy was super awesome!  She was way hotter than I ever imagined!  :045: :sex013:
Like everybody else, I just really really hate this whole thing happened.   
I would like to think if I where in Brians shoes I would've handled the situation a little bit differantly, but I'm not going to take up for him
