I have also tried to get hold of him, he has one of my Lexus auto boxes and SFA manual gearbox and transfer case that he was busy combining for my Hilux project.
I spoke to GAP in Boksburg and they haven seen him for a while now. If anyone lives in Springs and can drive past his new workshop maybe that will help. the address is 91 Third Street, 1559 Springs, Gauteng.

I have a similar problem. Also paid for some stuff. I did eventually get hold of him but he is having personal issues and he says he lost everything and is looking for a job. Not sure what we are going to do now.

What!
How is that possible. It seemed that he has done so well! Was it the move to the new place or what? Im sure he will build up everything again as he knows his shit if it comes to conversions...

If anyone does find Mark, please let me know. He was in trouble and still took a deposit for a job for me, a SUBSTANTIAL deposit.

Wie gan weet... Die invoice wat ek destyds gekry het was presies net so en ek dink as jy hom terug dateer is daar geen moeilikheid nie... Mens kan self stamps of iets lat maak vir die ding...

...this is extremely frustrating. I got hold of Joey, she keeps promising to get him to call me back, but he never ever does. This is disgusting and I know I am not the only one who paid him a large amount of money that he used to run away....

Ishh... That is rough... I would have never though this of Mark... He was always there to help and did a very neat conversion on my 45...
