      tell me about it, he claims that he sent me to sets of 1.9td wiring, but i have not even received one yet. So if i do get one set then ill be happy if not ill be steamed because i need the wiring to complete my project?
      Do you have any access to a complete 1.9td engine wiring harness? If so I would be interested in buying it off you.

      looking for idi 93 or 94 1.9td, engine wiring harness, i dont need the head lamp wiring but if you can include the fuse block or at least picture of the relay positions and number of the relays. Also any ecm or any type of brans that might be under the hood attached to that wiring

      I'd get some local members to make a house call. Or just show up on his doorstep.

      yeah I'm familiar with the patatron scam, and cullen and a couple other d-bags. 20 people * $500 that's a good chunk of change. Hopefully you can get your monies back.

      I was on the phone with paypal many times to get mine and a few others theirs back but theres a lot more people that have been screwed. Just be annoying enough and talk to a manager where you sent the money through. Worked for me becuase most of those people you talk to dont know anything past the sheets they read off of...

      Ok, finally i have recieved all of my shipment as intended from the seller martel markus. So I will have to say he came through on a $2000 purchase. His name is clear in my book.

      well here is the thing on that, a harness was part of the deal with the motor, so i have that now, however, he neglected to send me any of the relays or give me pics of relay placing and numbers, right now i have no way to find that out plus i need relays
