Pimpston 65

It is with a heavy heart that I post this. I do not like airing dirty laundry but after talking with some folks from the forum they said I needed to post to help other members out.

In June of 2019 I sent every bolt for my truck to Pimpston65 ( Winston) to have the bolts cleaned up, and re-plated. He said since he lived in Detroit that there were folks up there that would do it a lot less....So I sent my bolts in 2 for cadmium plating and one for black phosphorus. I then send him 150.00 via Paypal for any cost incurred.

Periodically I would check with him about the bolts status and was assured they were on the way.

Before the covid 19 hit I started texting, emailing, calling and even texted his sister about the bolts..because I cant put ANYTHING back together.

I have been completely ghosted. No calls, texts, emails...NOTHING.
I sent him another email last week pleading, if not begging for him to send the bolts back finished or not....No response.

At this point I am unsure what has happened to him or my bolts. He last logged in here in May best I can tell....But for these reasons I recommend being very careful when dealing with Pimpston 65 ( Winston Eugene)

Re: Pimpston 65

John, I am sorry it came to this thread. You and I have discussed the dealings with Winston many times over the last 9 months or so. I think unfortunately, you are doing the right thing. I just don't understand people that do this sort of thing.

The truck community is a small one and it will come back to bite him in the future. Regardless, the worst part is hijacking your bolts. I would have more respect for a scammer if they communicated with me and said "sucker, come find me for your bolts and money." At least they would be acknowledging what they did instead of ghosting you.
