Generally I do not show research and development items that are in progress or in the planning stages.
But: A note about new Fiero parts being developed by myself. It may seem that I have been developing new Fiero items at a much lower rate these days than in years past. in my opinion this slow down has been mostly caused by one individual on the Fiero forum (sardonyx247) that for over 15 years has been jabbing me on the Fiero forum whenever he gets the opportunity. This individual placed an order on my web page over 15 years ago when I had a $10.00 minimum order. My web page at that time (I have since removed my minimum) clearly stated the $10 minimum order total when using a credit card. His order with shipping that day was $6.00. So to try and be a nice guy and to try and be fair I charged him only $7.00 instead of the full $10.00. Although he accepted the terms of my web page by ordering off my web page that day knowing he would be charged $10.00 he emailed me the next day complaining that I charged him $7 instead of the $6. I replied: My web page has a $10 minimum, I could have charged you more. So from that day forward he has held a serious grudge against me. In my opinion his jabs and degrading comments about me on the Fiero forum seem like they will never stop. Several members on the Fiero forum have told him it was his choice to place the order knowing I had the $10 minimum. For 15+ years he makes me pay for the choice he made.
This dark cloud does have a silver lining: I have moved on to developing replacement parts for other car makes and models. I sell these in bulk to other retailers. I am still working on a couple new Fiero things. I have many ideas and there is some stuff I'm working on lately but never seem to find the time or the passion to finish them these days in my opinion because of this persons actions towards me. I'm not going to say I will not develop any more Fiero parts, I still have maybe some passion to make some Fiero parts. Certainly not as many as I probably would have. In the years to come I may start to discontinue slow moving items and maybe parts that require a lot of labor to make in my shop.
In my opinion because of sardonyx247 I can not be involved on the Fiero forum any more. I can't develop Fiero items without the input, advice and support of the Fiero owners on the Forum.
*Consider taking the time and go on the Fiero forum (link below) voice your opinion and give sardonyx247 the rating you feel he desires if it is your opinion that you agree that his actions towards me have been detrimental to all Fiero owners.
In my opinion this person is a terribly vengeful person:
seeking to harm someone in return for a perceived injury.
