Well looks like I stumbled into a Mantis Profloater project. It certainly was a deal. Seems that the poor paint condition and failure by the seller to mention he accepts PayPal kept the bids low. :wink:

I think I'll dig into this as my first respray project.

I'll keep that in mind, but doubt I'll be letting it go any time soon. :)

All I can say is the outcome of the beer+ebay+snipe equation can often go either way.

This time it worked out in my favor... :twisted:

Someone is trying to scam you. That email does not match the sellers email and I've got a tracking number that shows that Fedex attempted delivery on the frame yesterday (while I wasn't home). Plus the request for you to "not press Respond Now" is clearly an attempt to circumvent eBay and elliminate the ability to trace the transaction.

I'd report this contact to eBay if I were you.
