Is Arrowhead Aluminum taking new orders yet? If not does anyone know where I can get a NASCAR fuel filler set-up? I am trying to build a mildly detailed Craftsman truck and can't find a fuel filler. Thanks for your help

I would not send anymore money to them than you can afford to possibly lose. I have heard that they have been extremly slow in filling orders, sometimes 1 year or more. Their website states that Duane has expierenced some medical problems the last few years.

You might just reach out to Duane in an e-mail first. There is also a phone number to call. listed On his website try that. I know Duane if he is able or has it already made. He may be able to help you out.Both Duane and Susan have had some health issues lately.

I wouldn't doubt that they're taking orders, the big question is if they're filling them. I placed an order three years ago, but I have yet to see the parts. Have asked for a refund several times but only got the "health issue" and "rest assured that we will deliver" runaround, and now they won't even reply to my e-mail.

That's the story I've seen time and time again. This has been the subject of endless threads, both here and at Scale Auto. Why anyone would attempt to do business with them is beyond my understanding.

As for "health issues," that has been an excuse for YEARS. I submit that "health issues" means someone there is either dead or at least brain-dead.
