it should have never started and would have never started if they didn't put out some shiesty half-assed bumpers.

I bet PayPal would have known there was a refund if you had PayPal'd it back to him. :tonka:

A money order from anywhere other than the USPS is basically no different than a check. It will get processed the same way.

So when it got finished was the leading edge cut at least sorta straight? That usually isnt a touch up detail, it should be cut straight to begin with and the finish details would be smoothing edges and countersinking holes.
Tab is online now

What is the standard size for a D ring tab? Even those is the pic look tiny. 3/8" or 1/2" at most. I've used 5/8" but now I always go bigger.

I use 3/4" thick by 3" tall by 5" long. I use a 1" diameter hole and center it so there is 1" of steel all around the hole. I cut a hole in the front AND the rear of the tube, slide it through, bevel it a tab and weld it on the front and the back. I figured that was standard.

Money order cleared. It showed up in our bank account this morning. Prob hit at midnight. Can't blame me for being nervous. For all I knew they could have bought thos money orders, made them out , and then reported them stolen or who knows? I thought they were as good as cash as well. I guess they are not in all cases.Oh well another lesson learned. Thanks to all!!

It does suck that pictures of my xj have surfaced all over the web with those damn "bumpers" on it. I would find it much cooler to have pics with out them on. And wow! That hitch in the pic above or on the page before is incredible. I am not a fab guy as stated before, but my question is this : Does that rwist or tweak have anything to do with it (the bumper) talking too much? Or because it is certified?:tonka:

are you done yet? you got your money back, quit your bitchin.
