Storm: You didn't take the necessary precautions to make sure the header was packaged & sealed properly, berfore you left the store. That is your responsibility (unless of course you have documented proof that you paid for the packing service). End point.

Storm: You also didn't disclose pictures of the entire item you were selling with all the noted defects. That was your mistake. End point.

91sentragti-r: You bought a used item without knowing the complete and current state of the item, at the time of sale. That was your mistake. End point.

Hopefully lesson learned for both parties.

Possible resolution: Post pictures of the shipping damage. If it is just a dent in a seconday, it should not be too expensive to fix. Take it to a fabrication shop, get an estimate. Post up a copy of the estimate. If the estimate is deemed to be reasonable, the seller should foot the bill.

This is the quickest and easiest way out of this situation for both parties. There should be no need to ship a header back and forth across the USA whilst flinging shit at eachother. I am sure both parties can put egos aside and find a quick resolution to this. The more shit that gets flung, the harder it will be to come to a resolution.

I promise you will not be judged by the mistakes you make but by the way in which you choose to deal with them!

Best of luck on finding a speedy resolution. Internet fighting is mostly pointless.

here are the pics of the packaging and header that Oscar asked me to post for him since he only has access to internet through his phone.

I was expecting a lot worse judging by all this back and forth....not gonna lie lol

Judging by all that open space, that header had a hell of a ride though

Looks like a 4 year old, USED exhaust manifold to me. And based on my shipping/receiving experience, something of that weight and size with no packing material, I was expecting to see much worse especially considering a 3000 mile journey.

I don't think those are just dings. Where they are located, I would suspect the pipes have buckled. It looks as if the header had been compressed end to end.

Look like dings to me. If buckled there'd be distortion on the sides, and the box would most likely have much more damage. OP said it was usable, just not to his liking.

Holes near the top of the box are most likely from the flange (heavy and upright in the box) busting through the cardboard. Again, I'm surprised it's not way worse considering the circumstances.
