    Default Magic Mirror Mounts

    I ordered a set of "Magic Mirror" mounts from Russ on 5 April and expected to get them within about a 15 day period but had not received them to date. He sent a tracking number but nothing changed in the tracking info since I received it! I sent him an Email today asking for an expected delivery date.
    Here is his response:

    Your parcel has been held at mebourne for 9 days now
    A dickhead there noted they were magnetic
    They have now been asvised to release them in limited numbers
    Welcome to aust post

    Ordered mine on Feb. 20th, still waiting. I realize that there is nothing Russ can do. Looks like I might be going to Spyderfest with duct tape holding my mirror on. Several people have tried but we can't get one of the pins to engage.

    Once you DO get them: you'll find out that they were worth the wait. I'm just sorry that this isn't really any consolation.

    Will Carly help?

    Unfortunately this happens. We order parts for work from all over the world and it is common that magnets, bearings and such are held up. 😫
    The bad news, I have a set of these enroute.

    I know you have looked but one of the wires on mine stopped it from going on.

    I have some ordered too, and have the same issue with that lame tracking system. A couple days after I ordered them I saw that LaMonster was selling them.....grrrrr..... Hopefully I'll have them before I have to put it away for winter.

    Default WELL, I GOT 'EM

    I did get my magic mirror mounts - took 28 days from when Russ sent them - but in my experience that's about par for the course for overseas mail/post/whatever it's called. Not his fault. MY problem is, my RT went into the shop the day before they arrived. If I weren't able to laugh, I would cry.

    I feel bad for Russel as there's nothing he can do once it leaves the shop. The package we got was beat up pretty bad with a big hole in it. Somehow we didn't lose any of the product. We have another large order heading our way. We won't get the complete order for a few weeks but a partial order shipped out to me Tuesday. Like others have said it's a great product and Russel is a standup guy.

    The YAW Control Sensor is supposed to come in today. Since it's waiting for parts, my RT is off of the work stand, which I totally understand. This is a VERY small dealership, and they only have one stand, but they are the absolute best dealer around. I recon when they finish the one they are working on now, mine will be next in line. I'm guessing midweek next week.

    By the your Avatar is The Robot from the TV series "Lost In Space". He was called "Robot" Mine?

    Here's to hoping that they get you back on the road soon!
    Technically: mine was called "B-9" by the studio...
    But yours is Robby from "The Forbidden Planet"

    Mine are also on their way from Russ and were shipped April 10th. I guess I'm in the same situation and will just be patient. I agree, it isn't Russ' fault.
    I do hope that they arrive intact when ever that is.

    I second your feeling bad for Russel.

    Mine are ordered and they'll get here....when they get here. It's NOT his fault once they are in the system. Patience is in order.

    Default Magic Mirrors

    Ordered my Magic Mirrors from Lamonster on Friday, got them on Monday, installed them in 30 minutes. The mirrors seem to be more stable than before, less vibration. Really going to appreciate them when I do service and mods.

    I'm not apologising for any of the sloooow postal service processes out there, & certainly not having a dig at those hardworking Postal workers out there who do try to move the mail quickly & accurately, but considering the world as it is today, it's probably not all that strange for these sorts of items in particular to take longer than 'normal' mail!!

    Just think about it for a minute - you know that you're expecting magnets (or bearings, or lumpy metal parts, or whatever) but do they?? And you can probably guess that the package you expect is going to be a bit of an odd shape & probably also a bit heavier than the usual mail in the system - certainly heavier for its size than most.... Soooo, just consider this from the postal system or workers point of view for a moment - here's some stuff that's wrapped 'pretty well'; it weighs 'quite a lot' for a package of this size; it probably has a few other similar packages gathered around it; & it might even be hard to pick up off the metal sorting tray.... What else does it take to start ringing alarm bells in your mind??

    Even (or maybe especially) if it is labelled clearly, just about the only other DANGER Will Robinson, DANGER warnings I can think of that you could add to these packages would be greasy smeared finger marks (didja notice any of them on the packing tape? Russ always leaves sticky/greasy finger marks; Brenda, not so much!! ) & a funny almond-like smell emanating from the package!! Oh, wait a minute, does it tick or upset electronic gear??

    Anyone else concerned yet?? I must admit that originally, I didn't even think about what these packages might bear some similarities to, but then when people started mentioning they took a while to get thru & that some had obviously been 'inspected' strenuously, it slowly dawned.... These packages have quite a few of the 'give-aways' that might just cause a bomb scare - and the more Russ & the Girls in the office try to 'disguise' those hall-marks, the scarier the package is likely to become!! More bubble wrap & tape?? Uh-oh!! Put it in a little box & hand-write the address labels? Yeah, Nope!! How about sending them overseas from an obscure country town address?!? Sending them in batches to a heap of US addresses?!? What about sticking a warning label on the outside?! Yeah, Sure!! No-one with mayhem in mind would ever think of doing any of that!!

    So like I said, I'm not trying to make excuses, & I really don't have a solution - but it is now just a little clearer in my mind why some of these packages could be taking a bit longer than expected to get thru the system & why some are damaged/torn a bit more than you might expect.... not sure that there's anything that Russ or the Girls in the office (both/either of them!) could do to alleviate the concern, either??

    If you perform your own maintenance on your Spyder the first step for just about every procedure is to remove the mirrors. I always cringe each time I attempt the mirror removal process but not with the magnetic mirrors mounts. Now it will be a simple task to remove and replace.

    Default Magic mirrors

    I ordered mine about a week before I found out that Lamont was selling them . Strange how that happens, the same thing happened when I ordered my fender lights, about 2 weeks after I ordered them, I went by his shop on my way back home from a Colorado vacation and he told me he was selling them........

    Refer to post#10. Overseas mail does take a really long time, what with customs, etc. Mine showed up when I least expected them. Yours will too.

    I take it that is why I can't pull up on your site? Is there a way i can pre order until your stock arrives?
