Hello All -

Starting this thread to provide updates on status of order fulfillment on the InSain Fab group buy. We are doing everything we can to expedite the process of getting product shipped, including bringing in a couple people (including myself) to address some unforeseen challenges and help Chris NYX and Corey wrap this thing up. Note: This thread is not to perpetuate the blame game, it is in place solely to provide information to those waiting for product. ALL of our efforts are focused on moving forward. So...I will try to provide daily (probably weekdays only) general updates in this thread. As warranted, I will continue to contact people individually.
So, as of today, here's where we are:
- We are in the process of untangling some logistical issues with the UPS shipping. I don't want to promise a specific day invoices will be going out because I don't know yet, but I am hopeful that changes very soon.
- Second gen plate front bumpers are for the most part at the shop ready to ship, or at the powdercoater, If you do not know which category you are in, feel free to PM me. (Note - I only have access to the spread sheet from which I am working during business hours)
- Second gen rear bumpers are same deal as fronts, above.

The following items have not yet been built, and I will provide a timetable for them as soon as I can:
First gen rear bumpers (5), first and second gen sliders (2 each), Second gen tube front bumpers (2).

Finally, Corners....There are nine people with orders for corners. The issue with corners is fitment. While it is easy for the builder, Corey, to install and make them fit and look good (takes him about 30 minutes), it is not a simple process and not an easy one if you are not already handy at it. These will be the last of the items built, and it may take a while. If you would rather have a refund than wait, we are more than happy to do issue one to you. I would like if possible to get a head count for those who would rather get their money back than wait, so let me know.

That's it for now, I appreciate the majority of you understanding we are doing our best to get this thing back on track on rolling. If you have any questions, shoot me a PM. This way Corey can concentrate on doing what he does best - fabricating.

Should have more specifics on the shipping and timelines by tomorrow. Thanks!

Outstanding. Looking forward to hearing the good news. Thanks to Corey Chris and NMTerras for combining heads and getting this thing back on track for everyone.
Ditto to this! Thanks gentlemen. I am super excited to rock the front bumper all over the Thornton/Denver area!

So exactly what is happening here? I got my rear bumper right before heading to GONE and contacted IF right away and so far no contact from IF. I'm left with an unsatisfactory bumper with MANY issues that I won't get into. Corey please check your messages/emails and get back to me. That'd be appreciated. Thank you N.Y.X. for returning pms and etc and for your hard work trying to set this straight. I don't blame you one bit for stepping away from the GB.

Guys - partial update. For those of you wanting to know when first gen items will be built, the second gen items have to be completed first as only one "jig" at a time can be used. In other words, it would be a waste of time and effort to switch back and forth. Sorry for the inconvenience, first gen guys, but someone had to go first. And let's be honest, this GB got real big, real fast. The shop is doing its best to catch up, but still produce quality product, and tackling these products by type at the same time is the best way to do that. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks - appreciate it. To the quite a few of you who sent PMs over the weekend - I'll address them when I'm back in the office. I don't "work" weekends...
And Corey barely appears to work at all. I hope you can get me a response from the now 5 emails I've sent him. I understand he is busy trying to fulfill this GB but it is B.S. that he is not responding to emails.

As stated in my PM I don't want/need a fix right now, I just want acknowledgement and a plan to fix my bumper that never should have made it to powder coat..

Yes, I'm in the same boat. Three of us here in WA all bought rear bumpers and out of the three bumpers not one of them is built the same. I won't get into specifics as I'm not trying to bash anybody but I really need resolution here. I too have sent several emails before I was sent in your direction. All I want is for this to be over with. Here's to taking a step forward here:eek:ccasion5:

Ok guys - got a lot of PMs over the weekend, when I didn't have access to them. Unfortunately, I also had a head-on with an elk and have been dealing with that. I know a handful of bumpers are going out tomorrow. As far as those of you who have product with which you are not satisfied, all I can say is try to hang in there, because right now the priority is to get ordered items out, and finish building out the order.
With regard to QC - I suspect much of this has to do with the unexpectedly large size of the GB. Alot of the welding and finish work was farmed out to folks at the PC shop who obviously are not of the same quality craftsmen. Corey is doing his best to work it out going forward, obviously that is small consolation to those of you dealing with it now. All I can say is please be patient.

Who has bumpers shipping tomorrow? My bumper has been ready for a week and I still haven't received a shipping invoice so I can pay...

I was told I would get an invoice by the end of last week at the latest.
PM me - my list has you as one of the ones who are ready, but I don't have your address.

I'm in the same boat. Mine has been ready for a while as well and no shipping invoice was ever sent to me either... Sent NMTerras a pm earlier today as well.

Ya. Kinda sucks. Wish they would have split it up between two GB's, one pre Moab and one post and taken their time with the fabrication. Only the people going to Moab could have went first, then made the rest of the orders one by one down the list.

As long as our issues all get fixed in the end it's a lesson learned for everyone.
