WARNING - Glen's Garage CLOSED

Postby jsmcortina » Tue Dec 28, 2010 8:47 am

I have been made aware by Al Grippo that things have unfortunately gone wrong for Glen. I do not know what or why, but the bottom line is that he is not trading.

DO NOT send him any money.

that's a bummer. his service was always slow, but I liked using his PWM idle board for 2 wire ICV's and 6 cylinder wasted spark.

+1 as a bummer. I ordered once from Glen and I received my MS and other parts within a few days.

Shame really, I've gotten some stuff from him about a month ago... guess things went down fast.

Yep, that's a bummer. I had one purchase from him a long time ago that was slow and unexplained, but since then everything had been great in my interactions with him to the point that I recommended him to people.

To be fair, I'm also a big fan of DIYautotune, but it was nice having Glen in the community too.

I normally tried to "spread the love" and buy from Glenn and DIY. I actually liked the RS Autosport wiring harness, as it had nearly every pin terminated, and they provided lots of extra wires. I always bought my kits from DIY and most of the wiring products (MS Specific) from Glenns. I am sure there is a logical explanation and I will get my money pack (Paypal is still pending actually, but they will not let me reverse the payment).

Oh that's a great shame, I was really happy with Glen's service, products and friendly help - couldn't fault him.

Received the parts I had on order with no hassle. I hope the best for the rest of you that have open orders and much luck to Glen in sorting the mess out.

Thanks James. Was wondering what happened to an order placed. Got parts from him years ago. needed to order Coil driver boards. Guess I'll home brew up one or two for my use.

This explains a lot placed an order with Glen for an MS2 Kit on the 30th Nov, order still pending. Thankfully i paid using Paypal so I will start the refund process ASAP
Is there any where else i can get a kit from as i quite fancy the idea of building it myself.

Thanks

Quite out of the blue I received an email from Glen apologising for the delay (been having trouble keeping up with orders over the holidays) saying he will ship my order tomorrow and upgrade the delivery to express. I will keep you posted

I don't mind the fact that Glen has for whatever reason decided to no longer sell Megasquirt kits, but common decency dictates that he should at least stop accepting money. How long could it take to pull the site down?

When I first read that Glens was Closed, I went ahead and ordered two of his Coil Driver Boards, they are only 8.00 dollars each and they seem to be the only place on the web that has them, so I figured it might be worth the risk. I ordered on Jan 12th, I think I'll give it another week and then contact Paypal and begin the dispute process.

I really hope Glen squares his life away and begins shipping parts, I realize that this community is actually pretty small and the vendors probably don't make all that much, but I am not into giving charity, I want my boards.

If anyone knows a vendor who sells a board equivalent to the 3 wire PWM idle valve & coil driver PC board Greg sells I'd be greatly interested.

As you say, the MS community is pretty small so vendors try to not copy each others design and sell their own version of the exact same custom board (at least the respectable vendors). So you likely won't find the exact same thing from another vendor.
