I've also done business with Matt and he's a straight shooter. I recommend him highly. Sometimes he's off the net but he'll get back to you shortly. He usually answers email in the early AM and I imagine it's cause he's working all day and doesn't have time to be checking the computer.

Or he is fishing. But most likely he is underneath a truck trying to get it finished. He will call. He doesn't call usually until the end of the day. He's a 1.5 man circus. In the best way

I can't help you there but I do recommend Matt unconditionally.

He usually answers e-mails around 5:00 am and don't be shy about calling him. He will get back to you and you will be glad you found him.

...you pre-paying my bail?...

seriously sorry if I have missed calls and or e-mails and smoke signals etc. been busy ...... haven't even bailed the Slut out from this past weekends frolic yet (nothing like driving around with several gallons of aquatic vegetation under the seats)

Phoenix, I tried calling the number that came up on caller id and got some weird auto response....

I need someone to answer the F(*^%&$&*G phone, and sort nuts and bolts.
