I ordered side moldings, rear splash gaurds and a hood deflector from HandA.I got it today. HandA made the big mistake of labeling the air delfector>>FRAGILE. OK that just told the ups man to drop kick it and put something heavy on top of it.The box was damaged and the deflector was broke in half. I called HandA and they said they would send another one out to me.They seem like good people to do business with.My other parts were perfect. Ups must have air dropped it because it was seriously packed very well and would be hard to damage. Looks like a fork lift hit it.:confused: But, I will put my side moldings on and patiently wait for my deflector and custom graphics from Ladyridge.I will post pics when all this is done.

I knew someone (a young doper punk) who worked the dock at the local UPS terminal and he once admitted that they purposely abused packages which were marked "Fragile". :eek: :mad:

I used to work in the IT dept of a major freight company. I made several visits to the docks as well as he airport cargo drops. You can only imagine the things packages went through. Let's just say I make sure to wrap anything 3x more than I should have and I always buy insurance on anything over $100.

I just shipped a very expensive item, in used condition it was sold for $6000.00. Packed on a skid and banded down. Had all kinds of fragile labels and this end up stickers on it. Well, first Fed-Ex lost it and then when they found it they decided to tip it over and destroy it. My customer refused to accept it (of course). Good thing it was insured for $6000.00

Just got the cargo net I ordered, it came in a box with fragile on it in three places.You could not break it if you tried.Nice that they put it on there though!
Honda put the Fragile on the air deflector. We know better than that:
