BLOCK8HEAD gauge pod?

Hey all just wondering if anyone has any info on the guy selling/making these pods. I ordered one at the beginning of the month and haven't seen it yet I also emailed him a few days ago and never got a reply. Thanks in advance.

They are made to order so it takes time if he has lots of orders at once.

Mine took about 3 weeks.

Good to know that he's a good person and filling orders but he sucks at communication. Just sayin...

Necro bump.
@dexter_5000 how do I get block8head to respond to an email? I don't have a Facebook account. Would like verification he got my payment and is processing the order.

I couldn't get him to respond after I purchased my pod either. I would say just hang in there it's getting done. Although I agree the communication sucks. I received my pod in the specified length of time and couldn't be happier with it. Just for peace of mind

I've been though this with Block8Head where there was limited communication. If you payed through PayPal, just make sure you transferred funds to the right email and if its correct you should be good. It took approximately 3 weeks to get a tracking number and pod came the week after that.

His pod doesn't click in place like OEM, well at least the one I received, someone locally fits perfectly and the tabs actually clip/snap in like OEM, my tabs were already bent and weak so it likes to fall off. The gauges don't sit flush and there are some imperfections.
