2000 I purchased a white gauge face set from Patrick
Edwards. This was way before iPd began making faces and shortly
before I began making my own. The price was $50.00. I
ordered a set for my '84 245. I
set pictured, which was for an '86-'88 240... wrong year. I
Patrick and he told me to return them and he would make it right.
I returned them by registered mail with signature confirmation. A few
days later I got it back again with a note from the postman stating
that the parcel had been refused by the addressee. Further
attempts to contact Patrick by email and by snail mail met with no
response. Shortly after this fiasco is when I decided to begin
designing my own white faces.
Patrick Edwards is an irresponsible jackass and he has earned a
prominent place in the Hall of Shame.

This guy is a joke:
16911 summer creek circle
san antonio tx, 78248, thanx
Says he sells white faced guages for the 240; I sent him a 50 dollar
money order. That was over two months ago. He sent me an email saying
he received it, and I'd be getting the guages in 2-3 weeks. This did
not happen. I sent an email, saying I didn't get it. He sent a response
saying he will send another, and that if I receive two to keep them
both. Didn't get that one either. Then, I send an email saying I didn't
get the damn thing. He replies with an email that they were on back
order and was sending them. HOW CAN THIS BE? DIDN'T HE SEND TWO
ALREADY? WERE THE TWO ON BACK ORDER?
I have yet to receive them. I am an angry sonuvabitch. I am not taking
this lightly. I should have my head examined for buying something
privately over the internet. Anyway, I have the guys address and his
email, and I am so mad that I'm gonna take him to small claims. Luckily
I saved all the emails we exchanged, including the one where he says he
received the money order. Just watch out guys. I know most of you
wouldn't pull this shit, so thats why I tell my story. Man, if I'm ever
in texas, I'm gonna visit summer creek circle, I guarantee that........
On Sep 13, 2010, the above person placed
an order for one Volvo Domed Poly Grill Badge, cost: $7.60. He
opted for Int'l First Class postage ($2.00), which is inexpensive, but
not insured or tracked. He made payment using Paypal. He
then sent a
separate email asking how soon the item would ship. I told him it
would ship the next day. It did.
Five days later I received a message from Paypal that stated Martin
Davies (with the same email as above) had opened a dispute, stating he
received this item. This was quite strange, since there had not
yet been enough time for the item to reach the U.K. from the USA.
So I sent Martin an email asking about the dispute, asking why he
didn't bother to contact me, and pointing out the item had only been
shipped a few days earlier would not have arrived yet anyway. His
response on Sep 24, 2010 is below....
"THERE IS A DISPUTE IN PLACE FOR A REASON. NO GOODS HAVE BEEN RECIEVED
THAT HAVE BEEN ORDERED AND PAID FOR. YOU ARE THE THEIF STEALING MONEX
AND NOT SENDING GOODS. AND YOU ARE BREAKING COPYRIGHT LAWS TO WHICH I
HAVE SPOKEN TO VOLVO SO EXPECT TO HEAR FROM THEM SOON.ANY FURTHER
CONTACT NOW OR IN THE FUTURE FROM YOU OR ANY AGENT ACTING ON YOUR
BEHALF BY ANY MEANS MANUALLY,ELECTRONICALLY OR TELEPHONICALLY WILL BE
TREARED AS HARASSMENT. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. NOW IN PLAIN TRAILER TRASH
ENGLISH FOR YOU....GO AWAY AND FUCK YOUR SISTER"
Since the item was shipped without insurance or tracking, I had no
of delivery. Paypal
fully refunded Martin's purchase. I rely on HONEST people to make
work and to keep shipping costs down. While he claimed he never
the item, I certainly believe that to be false. Who files a dispute
only a few days
after ordering, before contacting the seller??? Had he
emailed me (and given it time to get there), I would have just sent
another badge. Martin Chalmers-Davies is a creaton of the worst sort
and has earned a prominent place in the Hall of Shame.
