Default Stop asking to buy parts off my car

To the members of the LS forum stop asking me to sell random parts off my vehicle if I list it for sale in the for sale section then you can ask me if its for sale. Next person that ask's me is not going to like my response.

It's like when a person wins the lottery and "relatives" crawl out of the woodwork! My wife's stepmom's best friend won. We got to visit their new home and it was a mansion. But then we heard how they have all these new relatives from all over the world (legit but beyond even 2nd cousins) trying to catch up lol even kids and parents not happy with each other.

p.s. the build is ridiculous! SWEET

I get this all the time from the local guys. I’ve done it myself once for a super rare grille.

One thing I’ve been curious about is how some of the guys on here find all of these awesome rare parts. A lot of the places I used in the past aren’t around anymore. It seems Yahoo Auctions Japan seems to have a lot of stuff. I run into some stuff on eBay. Many of our vendors on here don’t stock the parts I’m looking for.

One place I’ve run into with tons of rare parts is Central Pine but they’re extremely shady. My sister ordered a grille for her LS430 and they never shipped it out. They also didn’t return any E-Mails for a month until she did a refund through PayPal. I’ve hear this happens a lot from them and they delete any negative reviews they receive on Facebook. It’s a shame because they have everything for our cars too.

Yikes. Heard this a few times myself, one of the main reasons I've yet to deal with them.

It was really disappointing because Sam from Central Pine had a lot of stuff I wanted for my SC and LS. 05LS430518 actually had warned me about doing business with him due to a similar situation with him. Central Pineís prices are pretty high in most cases.

We ended getting her a grille off led off of the forums. A lot of the parts that were widely available when I bought my LS arenít available now so itís been tough building her car how she wants it.
