i exchanged emails with alan today, and he is moving forward with getting the sills produced, as he said and as you described, benji. we agreed that worrying about chatter on web forums is not a good use of his time right now, and that the best thing he can do is get product shipped, and then the proof will be in the pudding. and we agreed that this whole thing has taken a toll on his emotions, which led to his frustration and his posting. so while he flared up when he felt like he was being put on the defensive by the head moderator of the tesla board, he is resolved to let his actions speak rather than words. happily, speaking of that proof, it looks like the pudding machine is now working, so some will hopefully be on the way shortly to those who have quietly and patiently waited for a long, long time. and once that happens, G3's reputation will be defined by its parts more than commentary from people on forums. i for one look forward to seeing another reliable supplier of CF parts for teslas step into the fray, as i have experienced first hand the benefit of having more than one supplier in the marketplace, with others like tesla and al & eds dropping their prices significantly with the entrance of carbon one into the market.
