I had a few fenders sent by greyhound. around $50. I'd guess it's at least 25-30$ ups? But I'm not a ups guy (not sure they know either as they deliver).

I'm not letting you off that easy. Shipping on something like a hood would have to be a lot, which may factor into this in a major way.

I'm in shipping, have been for close to 10 years. I take no sides in this dispute. From my experience shipping a folded up hood properly packaged to avoid damage by the package handlers from AR to NY would likely be in the $60 to $80 dollar range, +/- shipped via FedEx. Insurance would cost extra, likely in the $10 range. Cost of shipping is determined by 3 factors. How big a box, how much it weighs and how far it's going from destination to delivery. This is true for the 3 major carriers, USPS, FedEx and UPS.

Thats what I thought and ive fixed them that looked like that
but its even easier in a slip roll.

The worst would be split edges.

But the real point is, the buyer got a refund and has no right to keep the hood. He probably got reimbursed for the original cost of shipping to boot.

With old stuff condition can be debatable, one mans trash is another mans treasure.

If your not happy and the seller offered a refund RETURN IT!

It's pretty obvious that his guy is a jerk. I've never heard of a credit card company telling some one to keep an item after the person has got a refund for the item. I'm still waiting to see the documentation from the buyer where the credit card company told him to keep the hood. My guess is we will never see it. I hope Ryan pulls the plug on this guy.

The few times I have had the credit card company get involved with a dispute the first questions they asked were "How long ago was it purchased and did you returned it?". They wanted it returned before they would finalize the charge back.

Have to hand it to Ryan for stepping in and doing the right thing. Let's just hope Chuck gets his hood back and this gets resolved.

This Robert guy has infamously and deservingly earned and perpetuated a "front row" seat on the list of the few noteworthy, conniving scammers that have festered in the annals of "old car world" lowlifes. DD

Something has been altered concerning his posts since yesterday. Yesterday, he had 19 posts, 18 of which were ads in the FREE "Swap Meet" section peddling some of his own junk. In other words, one of those parasites taking advantage of the site for his own gain without offering any sort of socially redeeming value in return. DD
