Default SPD tuning?

Hey, is Mike Shields still selling parts or is he done. I read a thread a while back and was wondering if he really did shut down.
Thanks.

Chris

Yeah Mike had health problems for a while. I Emailed him a couple days ago, not sure if he'll answer or not. Isn't a big deal either way.

I'd Emailed him like three months or so ago and he'd told me that he was going to "slow it down" (the business) due to health, so... My guess is he's not doing business at all anymore, but who knows, if things look up for him maybe he will, later on.

I had an email chat with Mike several weeks ago. He may still be selling parts but at a slower pace. Not sure if he is restocking at this point.

I reached him by phone a few days ago asking if he still sold parts. He responded by asking me what I need. Cool. So I told him I was looking for LEDA coil-overs and he said he would make a call to LEDA to find out their production schedule to see when or if he can get them for me, followed by a lengthy discussion on what would be the best setup (spring rates and stuff). It doesnt sound like he is re-stocking, but Im glad that he is still selling parts. I will allways deal with Mike Shields over anybody else.

Default Mike IS winding down...

Hi,
I had dinner with Mike last week. He was ill for a bit but seemed better (Thanks God!). He also told me he is definitely winding down his business. I still bought a STi Type RA clutch from him and engine/tranny mounts. He seems to want to move on, which is sad news to the subby community.

Good luck in your new endeavour Mike!

Matt
