I suggest you take pictures, send email and ask them directly, forum is here and please share with us your results.. even if they claim their email is confidential.. bla bla bla... They are worse than the bankers I work with in my firm.. If I am not happy with a company or they have wronged me, I will take it to the forums with proof and let the community know.. Bottom Line..
Eddy doesn't like it here, from when the first round of corrosion problems from the earlier nickle plated blocks started appearing. He ducked and dodged the issue, and was blasted for it...and rightfully so. Xnine is right on target, he was blaming everything under the stars as the problem. Even after RRTech had some extreme res photographs of a brand new block posted showing massive plating problems under a powerful microscope.
That's when they discontinued the "original" nickle plating, and came out with the electro-less nickle plate. Nothing will cure the problems caused by plating a unclean base material. It's just that simple.
No matter that it was plainly pointed out, Eddy refused to admit the problem and continued to blame his customers. When in fact, shoddy workmanship was the source of the issues then, and most likely still is.Edited by Lucky 13 SpeedShop - 10/19/11 at 2:29am
