before i started this project i did a lot of research, asked a bunch of questions, estimated all the cost involved. everyone said your better off buying a bullet that had already been updated because whatever you budget will be way off.

they were right

on the other hand, its been fun doing it the way i wanted it. except for getting burned by an upholstery shop (taking him to court) i have no regrets.

I had a supposedly high end motor sport shop in Nunica Michigan that said they do interior work take my interior and $2500.00 deposit, witch also included all the embroidery work and would take two months to complete.
He then said that he could not do the embroidery that I requested. At my expense I sent the vinyl to south Florida. I did not have a problem paying the additional cost if the interior was done correctly.
After 7 months of waiting I went to pick it up. What a joke, I refused to take it and insisted it is fixed. He asked me to let him know what I did not like I told him that it would be easier to pick out what I did like. He agreed it was terrible and told me that he would fix it. Again at my expense the embroidery work had to be remade.
I waited another two months of listening to him blame (his vendor) the upholstery shop. I finally Told him enough was enough I would pick up interior done or not. When I arrived at his shop the interior was not even there. If I wanted it I would have to drive 25 minutes to the upholstery shop and pick it up myself because he did not have time to go.
When I arrived nothing was covered it was all bare foam, Not even new foam like was quoted.
He told me when his upholstery shop refunded the money I would be refunded. I guess I will not get my refund.
I will take it as a learning experience.
I should have sent it to Lip-Ship from the start.
