Wise Owl

Does anyone have current/ alternative contact information for Wise Owl/ Rocky Mountain Parabolics?
We can't seem to reach them on anything their web sites offer.

Thanks

Wise Owl is a different company. Bought by Roverpark Boys many years ago.

The originator of all that Ray Wood now runs the Roverdrive business:

roverdrives@yahoo.ca
ROVERDRIVE GEAR CORPORATION
3396 Marine Drive
West Vancouver, B.C.
V7V 1M9
Tel: 604.925.1260
Fax: 604.921-7290
www.roverdrives.com

I can't remember if he still runs the spring business as well or not.

Thanks, I'm looking to order parts from Wise Owl (door tops, oil filter adapters), not a Roverdrive.
We have tried everything so far, no reply.

My window tracks just arrived minutes ago. Very happy with the product and service. They also make the door tops and filter adapters...

I bought a set for my D90 and I love them. Fit great as they "tilt" in a little and make an awesome seal.

I love the look of them as they are natural aluminum. The opening mechanism is also perfect.

Highly recommend for the D90's.

Try the Roverdrive email or phone. I'm pretty sure he owns both still... I know it is alive because I chatted with him last week.

Yes, those look very nice - do you have any pics of them installed? Any rattling? The stock windows drive me mad sometimes.
