Thanx Spoo, I am going to contact him once more before the weekend. I'm going to state simply that the item is not as described and that had I known I would never have bid. I won't even mention feedback and claims. If he is willing to cover the costs and refund me in full, great, otherwise I'll neg him, file a claim and some guy in need of charity will become the owner of the SC. For me its a win/win! The seller, well if he insists on being a jerk, screw him.
