      Just received my MADE IN THE USA door panels after 6 months and 6 days, but who's counting.

      I wonder if that count is for their full-time workers or all the "common" card holders sitting at the hall waiting for their number to be called.... Legitimately it is not all their fault, but they do utilize issues like this to their advantage when it comes to contract negotiations. I work down there too and see first-hand what all goes on down on the docks. Yes, there is a huge backlog of shipping inbound and between the ILWU and CBP having to examine/inspect all the cargo it is a huge ball-ache... The last year things have been slow but overall things are beginning to pick up - but between CBP and the ILWU it will take a long time to catch up with the backlog.

      Thought Id update this thread. My ship date for the American racing wheels kept getting pushed out so I just cancelled my order. I went to Vivid racing and ordered some us Mags u123s, to my surprise they showed up in 5 days as opposed to 5 months in back order.Name:  CA627841-156C-430E-9553-524B1A37BDA8.jpeg

      I ordered some 18x9.5 riddler wheels from jegs this summer for a great deal. I think I paid $135 each, back space is set perfect for a 67 mustang. I played the waiting game for months for some matching fronts! ebay adds, other vendors, jegs, you name it stated matching fronts were in stock but it was all drop ship inventory from the manufacturer, The Wheel Group.

      Finally settled on a set of 17x8s for the front when they became available 5 months later. Wasn't set on the staggered look but the wheels bolt up out of the box and look nice.

      I ordered some HRE wheels in January. It's now heading into June and they've cut the centers in house, but are having trouble procuring rim halves, which they outsource, to finish building the wheels. I've called just about every manufacturer of rim halves I could find and everyone is having trouble getting them. I even called other wheel companies to try and buy them from them and either they don't have them or the few that they do have, they have to keep to build their own wheels before selling them out the door to other customers.

      I'm in the wholesale tire industry, manufacturers are having fill rate issues. Our warehouse have less inventory on hand than I've ever seen. If your daily driver or hot rod needs tires, might want to plan ahead in case your local tire shop needs to track down whatever it is you want.
      My update, the quarter panels arrived last week from OPGI. Damaged, of course. Driver drug them off the truck (no pallet) and took off before I could inspect them.

      Ironically, I probably wouldn't have refused them... if I did, I'd risk waiting another 6+ months for another set.

Just be honest about it.
      Lol. How prophetic I was and yet didn't listen to my own advice. I decided on a set of ProCar Lowback 90's to install in my wagon because the price and look was right for the build. Procar's site said they had the passenger side "In Stock" and Summit had the Driver side so I figured I'd be all set. Summit's seat showed up in 3 days. After two weeks of nothing I inquired to ProCar as to how the standing was on the order. "We're out of stock for at least 5 weeks" was the reply. Upon my checking, sure enough, the ProCar site shows the seat as "In Stock". I pointed this out to them and crickets was the reply and to this day the site still shows "In Stock".
      Of course they accepted payment from my PayPal account immediately.
