    This needs to be public. I paid Josh at True Street Tuning $1400 to make a set of 1g tubular subframes in May 2018. He promised a delivery time of one month. I waited paitently and checked in with him over the next 6 months. He had some excuses, like parts were out of stock, etc. In January I started to get mad about the whole deal. We agreed that he would either ship the subframes by a given date (something like Jan.30), or refund my money. Well, it's May 24, 2019 and I still don't have any parts or a cent refunded. He claims to be broke and injured. I even offered to let him pay me back in installments, like $100 month, that of course was turned down.

    I have filed a police report and intend to persue the matter criminally and civilly.

    Here is his info, please don't hire this guy to make any parts!

    I would be happy to share the email exchanges with moderators. I am not bashing anybody, just stating the facts so that others don't get ripped off by this <insert word here.>

    I got booted from a couple Facebook groups for calling him out on them being a bad design.

    One of his nutswingers got all defensive about it. Then sure enough it didn't matter because he ended up being a fraud anyway, and the few that did get made didn't fit.

    My lawyer says it will be an easy case to prosecute since I have every single communication and proof and payment including delivery confirmation.

    Extremely glad people like this get put on blast. I can't stand shady business men..
    And then they start the sob stories which just makes it worse.
    I really do hope you get this resolved and then some.

    Update 8/28/19. I filed a civil suit against Josh that was schelduled for 2pm today in his hometown of Uniontown, PA. I received payment in full this morning via Express Mail, 15 months after I paid him for the parts. In the end I got my money back, but was out $1400 for 15 months plus all the time I spent corresponding with him and researching the PA court system. I left him an honest review here, and I would encourage anyone else that has had dealings with him to do the same (be honest, I'm sure the feedback will speak for itself.)

    I paid him for a 1g sub frame with control arms and sway bar mounts. It’s now one year later still no refund and looks like I will have to go the same route.

    I don't know who this guy is, but he needs to do hard time. Or just a simple @$$ beating. WTF!

    Did you pay with a credit card? If so, call the company and see if there's anything they can do.

    Glad your situation worked out but its not cool when someone does this
