UPDATE
this time SPEEDWAY sent me 2 passenger side headers.
i will NEVER give that company a DIME again as long as i live.
from now on i will use those pretty catalogs they keep sending me for ideas for parts.
and then rush out and buy from SOMEBODY ELSE!!!!!!!!!

Billy

You should tell Speedway that you want the correct header sent next day air at their expense to cover your aggravation and time to re-box and ship the incorrect back to them.

Oh Billy give em another chance. They usualluy do right by me if they screw up, it's too bad you didn't find out soon enough and that this falls on a holiday weekend. On  another note what did ya do with that old chevy roof cap i gave ya awhile back? Saving it for your next build....John

yet another update.
after i stopped being so mad i was speaking in tongues.
i sent this email and also speedways response.
BTW that shipping is $53
hello MR Scranton.

is there a way you could cut me some kind of deal on these headers or something.?

these headers order mixups cost me a lot of time and that means they cost me money.

i am seriously considering never ordering anything from SPEEDWAY again.
 
i simply dont trust the company to send me what i pay for in a timely manner.

regards

William Hedges




William-

 

I provided my supervisors your words of disappointment regarding the matter regarding your headers. He refunded your shipping cost from original order for your trouble.

$53.00 is a pretty good adjustment. Did they send out the correct header yet?

I agree, sounds like they want to keep you as a customer.  I've had good luck with them so far.

Yeah Old speedway has been around a long time with knowlegable staff, and the continue to give good service even with the few problems they have. I am glad you are getting the new headers in time for you car club romp. Have a blast.....John

update
the drivers side header should be here today.
after installing the one i realized that the doors wouldnt open with the extensions installed.
so i unbolted the body mounts and jacked the cab up 2 inches.

it didnt really change the look any.
luckily i have slack in my brake lines and wiring.
the steering column slid on the heim joint so that wasnt an issue either.
i dont want to jinx myself but
it looks like it just might work.

You better watch out when you go into those parking garages, that extra 2 inches could turn it into a roadster pickup!  Looking forward to the pictures.

I like the new look Billy.  I can see where they would be loud though.  Just turn up the radio :).
