Their account is banned on this site so it's doubtful.

R1 is run by one guy and he's always busy. He's very active in the DFW VQ Facebook pages, he also does mechanic work for locals so on top of making bumpers, trunks and etc. he's swapping engines, painting parts and installing air lifts he even modifies headlights. If you want to get in contact with him join the VQ | DFW Facebook page and you'll find him there. <---Learned all this from various posts about his lack of communication lol Hope this helps

Good to know!

But if I have to go thru all that just to get in touch with him...its prolly not worth it. I cant stand irresponsible people. If he cant handle all the business, then he should hire somebody to help him out. I'll just go to the shop. If hes there....good. If not...oh well.

Thanks for the tip tho, man!

I never went. I ended up getting my Kuruma bumper and Impul sideskirts from a local guy who makes em.

I found him on OfferUp. I think he ships also.

Here he is: https://offerup.co/ioI7erKzST

G35 sedan w/ too much money in mods
I know Stephen personally and he's a great human being. Haven't talked to him in a while but all I have read leads me to believe he's trying to do too much for too many people. I'll try to get a hold of him and let him know Driver as a whole has concerns about his business.

I strongly recommend the book _essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less_ by Greg McKeown for these types of people that are pleasers and just cannot say no. It's really excellent and a very fast read with helpful diagrams.

not to disrespect the guy but the bumper he gave me was so pitted it was ridiculous, had to get a lot of filler and sanding done just to fix it.
