Did anyone buy any of the options for the seats? If so have they held up? Just curious, kind of shows me overall quality.
After reading past archive threads on the company it's clear that most people if not all were happy with their purchases though shipping is slow. It sort of appears that most people are still pleased now based on what I've gathered. It seems their reputation is very good.
I think the only model name thrown out there for captains chairs was the Ventura which was liked. I wish I knew of other models though too.
Anyone else buy from there?
There is an NPS store here across town from me which also has an Ebay and an Amazon store.
). For those who don't have one it's a damaged freight or "freight recovery" store and I've found that they have some amazing finds in among the other junk, to each according to his needs I guess.
We've found some really great deals on rolls of material and such. If you get in before the new stuff is picked over you can buy whole rolls of ultraleather and cloth for really good prices and some leather...except the leather which is still expensive and spotty on amounts and colors. I was hoping to find as much ultraleather as I could in the same color and type to line the ceiling within the plans that we had or at least use it for other projects....still gathering but it does come in. My brother found me quite a bit of it since he lives nearby and can check for me. We did a boat partially in ultraleather once and I really liked it, not mine though.
I've bought brand new parts for the bus project and for home with no damage at all and for very good prices. They have quite a number of neat hardware gadgets that I otherwise can't go snoop around looking at to see what I can build with them. Things like rollers, some actuators here and there, rams, slides, hinges, etc...
I almost bought a new in box electric fireplace from there.
They even had some new tires (new both date and no mileage) out there in my sizes though I'd never heard of the brand and so I passed. They were gone when I went back. I bought some light up emergency cones for a couple bucks each.
Anyway, kind of a cool place.....
