it was advertised as having a repaired/patched shade.  It arrived cracked without any sign of a suitable repair, only after the fact did you post a picture of the shade cracked in half prior to your "repair".  No additional discount was given, you accepted my offer of a lower price.


I am complaining about how you handled communication, failing to take responsibility for poor packaging, and that you do not insure your shipment


I don't think Wetpixel cares.


In the many PMs we had, prior to the transaction - including my reiteration the shade was cracked/glued - you continue to spout balderdash and total inaccuracies - which is apparently your style.  You now have changed - once, again (surprise) - your verbiage ( without a "suitable repair"), yet don't mention the many PMs back-and-forth prior to your offer and my acceptance of the terms.


I would suggest you only pay full retail, for new items, with a manufacturer's warranty, as you obviously have comprehension issues of the written word, such as "shade has a crack".  When items are disclosed - and priced - with such items, and further concessions given, when is a deal ever done for you, when it's free?  When does your acceptance of the deal, after many PM's, pricing of the item, and further price concessions, mean anything? 


So I hope all future seller's know you expect something for nothing, even after the deal is done. You expect clearly disclosed items to be "like new", even though they don't say that. 


So in my 200+ online sales with zero (that means "none") complaints, you're the first. And then you mischaracterize things, to what end?  When the item says "has crack", and then we PM and I reiterate that, I'm really not sure what it is you won't/can't understand.

In Topic: Removing scratches from a dome port

31 May 2014 - 05:04 AM

If the scratches are on the inside of your dome, they are kind of hard to reach. All of the various methods work by grinding off minute amounts of the plastic, just with differing grits of either sandpaper (use wet sandpaper, like body shops use), polishing compounds of various forms (all the way from acylic "headlight restoration" kits to NOVUS polish).  The main ingredient of the polishing is the elbow grease!!!


You can get "buffing" pads that fit on the end of a power drill. Buy a bit extension, and you should be in business. In polishing, you have to be careful not to wear a flat spot on the area you are polishing, and that is more difficult on a concave suface, as they don't make a convex polishing head (at least that I've seen).  If you use a smaller head on the polishing bonnet, that should help matters.


As mentioned by a great many posters, you just have to be patient with the process, and work the area a little at a time.


Hope this helps.

The above buyer has a serious problem grasping facts.


  1. Item clearly described as having a patch on a crack in the shade.
  2. Further price concessions given, in the amount of $35.
  3. At no time was there any "refusal" to furnish pictures of the item (there is a picture in the post).
  4. Buyer asks me to falsify paperwork to Customs. I refuse.
  5. Buyer sends several PMs prior to the transaction, all of which were answered, then consummates the deal. 
  6. Buyer then comes back, several days after the package is delivered and says there is a crack. Duh. See item 1 (and repeat this list, as necessary).  Buyer did not ask for insurance, yet item was wrapped in bubble wrap and inside the foam cover.
  7. Suggested to buyer to reglue to patch, with a $5 tube of epoxy.  See item 1 and 2.
  8. Buyer insists I should help purchase a new shade.  See item 1.
  9. I refuse, as item is as described. See item 1.

Buyer then goes to every website he can find and mis-states pretty much everything.   I am not sure why he cannot grasp the above items, and the fact the posting clearly states there is a crack in the shade.


Now it has turned into a matter of principle, as he is mis-stating sequence of events.  Again, see item 1.  :lightbulb:
