I experienced the same issues back in September and October. Once the axels shipped I got an email everyday from the shipper letting me know where they were at. It seem Colin has many irons in the fire
I must say that when you do get ahold of him he is VERY generous with his time and knowledge

I ordered my second set of axles from Colin Dec 17. We talked for a while and he told me then how busy he was. He is expanding his physical building by 100% and all the other things that entails. Hiring, remodeling, acquiring tools, and a couple million other things. Been there, done that. Not a lot of spare time going around with him right now.

That said, I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable and honest. I look forward to doing business with him again, and would like to congratulate him on his well deserved expansion which in the long run will be very beneficial to Vintage Airstream.

Tom

I too have been trying to get in touch with him with the same result? I ordered axles late in July and received them in about 6 weeks,getting in touch with him was spotty.When i was talking with him back then i am pretty sure he mentioned he goes to Florida for a couple of weeks in the winter,if i lived in Platsburgh NY i would go to Florida too!

Axles

I've ordered 3 axles from Colin and am about to order another for my single Axle 62 Safari. I like the options Colin can offer with his axles. Axis axles? I also like the ability to grease 'em up without taking apart the axle. He also offers Zolatone painting services. That's the next phase of my project... Colin could be in Florida. Maybe a clue on the VAP as to his whereabouts? Where in the world is Colin?

He's a good dude. Had a great time with him and Tim doing the VAP show awhile back. That type of business is probably much different than most and you all are probably using his service for a good reason. Hang in there.

When my axels were shipped in October I received an email every time they reached a freight terminal. I knew when they would be delivered and was able to call the shop I had them delivered to and tell them when they were due to arrive.

Glad to hear we aren't the only ones... I priced an axle back in Nov but we needed to wait till after the holidays to order. Now we have the money and cant get a response from Colin to place the order! If you get ahold of axis, they tell you Colin is the guy you have to order from...
