Seller of DREAMS!  That was Todd of LA Porsche.  Spoiler alert:  He always made good, sometimes it just took a while.  Zero regrets.

At the end of the day Todd sent me all the parts I needed in addition to some extras, and a spare motor to cover the cost of the frame straightening.  Sara now runs the place, and I have not bought a part since Todd passed. I do business with Caleb, his old parts manager who spun up hos own small business,  every chance i get.  Stellar.  I do miss Todd and had visited him on several occasions throughout the years.
