Q. When will my order
A. We ship most orders out the same day. (We don't have a "cut off time" and we
don't guarantee it will ship same day. All orders processed as quickly as
possible, usually same day, 1st come first serve, get your order in early.)
Q. Why do you want me
to use the order form
A. We find using the order form much more accurate. Please fill out
the form and fax if possible.
(or email, but do not email with credit card)
or better yet - order online - you can take your time, make and save, edit your
list and submit when your ready -
Please use the online ordering if you need pricing - it is very time
consuming to read back each item on the phone any item not in stock will
not have a price.
Please look up the parts numbers. - if you can't find something we
are glad to help, have catalog available so you can confirm and discuss.
Q. How do
I find out up to date pricing or if part is in stock ?
A: The online ordering section (green
link) - has all the up to date pricing - parts with price are in stock !
Please download the updated
catalog , changes from the printed book are highlighted in yellow.
Q. Can I ship my order to a different address.
A. Yes, if you complete and fax our "alternate" address,
We are required by the credit card processors to ship
to the address they have on file. This is the address to which you receive
your bill. If you have a post office box, fill out the form.
If you don't know where it is billed, call the bank listed on the back of your
card. Some banks let you list an alternate address in their files, but we have
found they don't keep it on record in all cases. Please fill out the form
for us to keep on file. (all info is held in confidence)
Note: if you are shipping to a shop working on your car etc, the invoice
will be in the box.
You must tell the people where are you shipping the order, to retain all
paperwork for you.
(I understand other vendors/companies don't require this, but we have been
scammed and this is to protect your card and information from fraud, as well as
protect us. )
Q. Can I pay extra to
get it out today?
A. Sorry, no. Given the opportunity everyone would opt for this, and it
makes our days too hectic to offer this as an option.. UPS picks up here daily in
the afternoon. If you call before 12 Eastern Time if will probably go our
"same day" but this is not a guarantee.
- You can get Next Day Delivery (UPS Red), 2nd Day Delivery (UPS Blue), 3 Day

Saturday delivery at extra charge
on UPS Next Day (Friday orders) and now 2 day Saturday delivery on Thursday

side pipes, exhaust pipes.
Check the online catalog area - if it is listed with a price , it should be

Q. How will I know when
my order shipped?
A. Provide us with your EMAIL when you order, and we will provide

Q. Will this item pass
NCRS or Bloomington Gold or other "Judging" standards?
A. We can not tell you what will "pass" a certain standard, as we
have found many discrepancies between standards and original blueprints,
original research we have done over the past 25 years. >
standards/opions keep chaning - we are very clear with the online catalog
descriptions and photos <<
We try and mark in the catalog if an item is a replacement. This will indicate
to you that it is not the same in appearance to an "original"
In many cases, we put the head marks in brackets, i.e. (TR), (M hdmk) etc. this
will indicate what we are selling, but just because it doesn't say a mark in the
description, does not mean it doesn't have one. See on "online ordering area" of
the website 1000's of photos. (click on the photo or view details for a larger
We have done over
30 years of research, looking at original, non restored cars,
reading numerous manuals,
If you have done your
research and are looking for a particular mark, style of
part etc. and can't tell if the catalog has what you are looking for, be
specific in what you want, don't just ask "will this pass NCRS" or the judge
took off is yours correct ? we don't know what you have..
Fax or email us a list with your order form,
be specific if this is just a question or an
order, and mark that you want correct markings only etc.... and we will do our
best to sort it out. - do not call us with I got points off for this
is your correct , Read the catalog- , look at the online pictures ... most of
these question can be figured out that way, or else - email with specifics. Take
note, different judges interpret the judging manuals differently at the various
shows, so what one takes off for the next one might not etc..
Suggested reading: The assembly manual, Corvette Restoration by Noland
Adams, The Fact Book by MF Dobbins all listed in our catalog in section #02
decals, labels, books section.
Q. How do I know how many of an
items is needed.
A. Read the Description in the Catalog > it will either say (4) or (set) etc..
Also see the # needed column, This is the column before the price -
This may say 1 or 2 etc
1 means you need 1 PER CAR, 2 MEAN YOU NEED 2 PER
You need to TELL US 2 if it states 2 in this column.
Q. Do you have a set for that ?
A: Everything is listed in the book either individually or in sets if
i.e.. in section 04 headlights, you
can purchase all items for the bulb install separately as section 04-21J,
04-21L,04-21H OR as a SET if you look at section #04-21L, this is
listed as "1 set" and lists which items are included. Also see example in
section 42 weatherstrips, we list all the soft top weatherstrips separately
and then we list sets for all the "soft top weather strips" or car sets of
all the weatherstrips for a roadster or coupe, with the individual #'s listed in
(15c,18a,18c etc...). Usually the sets are listed after the other parts,

4next to the sets, to
identify them easily.

THE CART NAME to RECALL the cart. we can not pull up a cart without the
name - if you have the name and can not pull up the Saved Cart

This is to keep your billing info and credit card information away from prying

is impossible for us to estimate for each order online. Minimum shipping is
$14 . minimum order is $20 subtotal. Additional charges to the shipping
cost are extra large boxes, packaging needed to protect the parts from breakage

the special instruction box (on the checkout screen) and we can email you an
estimate, this will hold up your order until you email us back.
