Lesson learned: Domestic suppliers.
This pigment only available from Japan?
sounds dang good to me. They need to find another supplier.With all the problems that the earthquake and tsunami have caused maybe some of these companies should take a look at bringing work back to the states and making the good old USA more self sufficient again.
I was on the phone with the customer service rep's at the plant yesterday for a problem with my order. I asked if I ordered a car and it was one of the colors that are on the list of having the paint shortage, how long would it take before I actually see my car. I was told that if they run out of a certain color, it can be up to 6 months before they even start building it. Then I would have to factor in the car going to ground effects and being shipped to the dealership. It wouldnt be a surprise to not see a car for 7 or 8 months after the order is put in. I'm buying one off the lot, I'm not waiting this long for a car.
