CF Bedford Chat / Re: Merlin........

Let me say this.........

Merlin / Neil has been friends - collegues - business aqatences... As soon as the monies returned I'll remove all comments (of course he's going to come back, you cant change the spots from a leppard) and be gone from all your hair and this conversation never happened.

Yes H.R. its only my side of the story but its my dealing with Neil. Neil has a mouth and can tell his story also to state our dealings.

Cheers Joe.

Spoke to other users who sounds like they have had a simular issue (names to be kept silent)

From hearing this, I will give Neil till the 22nd of May 2011 to give me a written response (verbal are sh1t and heard all everything come out but seen nothing) with progress photos if this cant be done (excuses are worth nothing now !!!)

I have engaged Lawyers and Debt Collection Agency to work from Monday AM to re-coup my money.

Where and how to start this forum.... well here goes.

In October in 2010 I put an entry on the Buga site asking for advice in purchasing a Bedford from South Australia, to build a replica A TEAM VAN, at this time Neil or (User ID = Merlin) contacted me and said "why bother buying something sight unseen when he could build me one from the parts he had / or could get me the parts he hasn't got (alot he already had, including the shell / body molds, wheels) and I was only to supply the wheels and $5,000 up front with an extra $10,000 on the completion of the work.

I made note that I was happy to pay $12,000 for a complete project (minus interior) but didn't mind scretching the budget to $15,000 with licensing and engineer reports, Neil was happy with this and signed a 1 page contract with name / address / contact details.

The build is for my sick brother who has limited life on earth due to being diagnosed with cancer late last year, and I thought it'd be nice to put his "childhold dream" into practice and have an A TEAM REPLICA VAN to enjoy

All was going well for the first 3 months, in continous response by mobile and SMS. thats where it stopped. With July coming up quickly this year I feel i am left with chasing $9,000 (which I gave in January 2011)  and not having my brothers toy.

I was in Perth late April (from busselton) went past his workshop in Rockingham and saw the Bedford Van in the same position and state it was in October. I called Neil 3 times during the day with no response. I "Personal messaged" him and no response but had a read receipt, I then went on to email him at his skymesh email address, for it to bounce back immediately with an error "no email address at this domian name" over the past 3 days I have called his mobile 5 times and SMS'd 5, still no response.

I know he's on here dially so he'll read this, I have done everything he has asked. and initially when i got in contact with Neil, he promised the world but at the moment I have seen nothing from my view or ears. I know July is still some 6 weeks away and I hope he can come thru with the goods as per our verbal and written conversations.

I have been screwed over in the past with a previous Build. I know where to go and what to do If it happens again (to re-coup damages / monies and time). But you can only scretch friendship so far with no communication.

Can someone shed some light on Neil AKA Merlin ? (how good is he or have you had an issue with him also)

Craig, the owner is David Basten (not all there most of the time, probably been sniffing too much paint, his hobby come day job) Speak to him about "painting some part of the house", make some bullsh1t excuse up and then you will be in a conversation with him, then you can get thru the wall of stupidity with him and talk to him about the beddy.

I offered him $5k some time ago, all keen to sell it but then some machinery stopped working in his head and never returned my calls, emails (after numerous times)

But saw it in town about 2 weeks ago and its not worth more than a $5 lotto scratchy he has F***T it up to a way that should only be seen in a Sims Metal Yard...

Sorry Craig but if it was me mate i would be looking else where for your new project to build it as BED-327 Version 2.

Hi there all, as my profile name says "i'm new to the game" of bedfords.. so i'm probably going to ask a question or three that may of been asked in the past, if this is the case then i apologise upfront now..

Anyway i've found 2 "neat looking" straight as a die bedford SWB Van's but in the colour of green and another in baby blue (looks queer as) anyway I'm wanting to find out how much it would cost to respray in a black colour all over -- not show quality but something that would stand out whiles in a parking lot or driving down the street.

I know its a "rough" question to put, but i've got a "tight" budget for the complete build, and i know this will be possibly the largest outlay on the build.

Thankyou if you can give me some info.

Kind REgards

It must be on the rise and going on' any way, an american company want a copy of my bank statment to verify who l am. BEFORE they deal with me, with all the crap thats happening, l'm hesitating to do it but l need the parts and l can't find anyone else
Rosie, if they are a legit company ask them to pay via Paypal.. i was reading somewhere on the WWW that 90% of american business do majority of there online trading using paypal... there is no way in the world I would be handing over my private and confidental data like that (next they will be asking for 100 points of id).

hi there -- Western Australia. but more specific Busselton.

Are you wanting / willing to sell your vehicle for the right coin (disregarding the price tag of $5,000)

There is a black bedford in Busselton, its a bits and peices one, offered $5,000 to the owner but he is taking his sweet time to response to any calls or messages..

Hope someone can supply me the goods !!

Hi there, as my profile name is called "new to this game" of bedford vans. I've built a couple of show cars, including HSV / Chevy's / Rotaries.. but now deciding to do up a Bedford SWB Van.

I need your help out there in the BUGA world... Looking at spending up to $5,000 - and have the cash available now.

Show & Send me the details of your van to me at "benn_williams@hotmail.com"..

If I was being "picky" not that i am, i would say "Prefer a black van and windowless.. I know i'm narrowing the search saying this so i'll ask you to send me what you have....
