I BELIEVE IN QUALITY BEFORE QUANTITY! (And from the sales I'm receiving, so do you!) SO IF YOU'RE IMPATIENT, DO NOT ORDER FROM ME!! Let me repeat that, IF YOU'RE IMPATIENT, DO NOT ORDER FROM ME!! I SIMPLY REFUSE TO RUSH MY BUILDS. Each radio goes through 24 hours minimum of burn-in testing when it's finished. IT WILL BE RIGHT WHEN IT LEAVES MY SHOP! Our Build Policy; Average turn around time for "CUSTOM BUILT RADIOS" is running between 180 to 220 days at present (May 2018). Customers are taking advantage of the MANY custom options we offer. Depending on the difficulty of your build OR THE BUILDS IN FRONT OF IT, this time could be longer! There are NO REFUNDS for custom radio orders. NO EXCEPTIONS! NO EXCEPTIONS! SO BE SURE BEFORE YOU ORDER! Every radio gets tuned/aligned unless you specifically say not to. So, no options radios are usually 10 to 20 business days depending on the model. 20% restocking fee on "as new, non-customized" radio returns. Radios are built AFTER they are ordered in the order of "payment" received. AGAIN, THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR RETURNS ON CUSTOM RADIO ORDERS, NO EXCEPTIONS. So be sure BEFORE you order! This is how it works folks. When you place an order for one of our custom radios we immediately (that day) order the necessary parts needed to build that radio including the donor radio, and set them aside for your build. So we have already invested your money in your order. We do this to prevent coming up short of the parts needed because it was discontinued or changed. (Which happens a lot!) I know this is a long time folks. But I'm only one person. I will work as fast as I can, without compromising quality, to get your order out. So as it says above, if you are an impatient person, do not order from me. Side note; We have stopped selling on ebay. Because of this Lester expects build times to become shorter. And our build times are slowly becoming shorter. We very much appreciate your business. And to all of my many, many repeat customers a very special thank you. Tells me I'm doing something right! 73 Everybody!
