Prepare yourself with money and a VERY high level of patience. When the lenses arrive they will be stunningly beautiful though

I guy waited 3 1/2 years for his emblem, that is unacceptable in any business or service. Order today and get it by February 2019....How that sound?

I waited three years for a pair of tail light lenses and had to get another person involved to add "pressure" to make even that happen. Sure the lenses are beautiful but that TOTAL INCONSISTENCY and the lies GL uses during the delays were way too much for me. Never again.

Talked to a friend yesterday who sent an NOS trunk emblem to George for the purpose of making a perfect mold to cast some new reproduction trunk emblems for a particular letter car. He received his NOS emblem and a couple of the newly cast reproductions just last week. This may be a record because he sent the NOS emblem to George in 2007 so it's only been nine years!!!!!!!!!!

I'm over 2 years and $900 out waiting for lenses I sent him....to be completely honest, his lack of output (as well as his absolute non-response to all of my emails) has put a serious nail in the coffin of my Desoto project. It's hard to get enthused about restoring a 60 year old car when every single part is unobtainable.

Its not complicated. Don't buy if you don't want to wait. Don't buy if you don't want your money tied up. I have beautiful lenses front and back at a price a lot cheaper than the Swedes were charging when I did it. The trunk medallion was unattainable by any other source I could find at the time.

I love the stuff I bought off Laurie and I was well informed by this site before I bought.

Thank you George. You make my car look so much better. You are an artist.

Anyone can complain that wants to. I say inform people and they will make decision that is right for them.

I specifically placed my order over 2 years before I needed the lenses. Hello, you're in a rush? Why the heck would you use him? This site should have told you loud and clear.

Keep it up George.

I just bought a set of DeSoto tail light lenses from George and it only took 2 months. They were perfect and make my ratty car look a lot better. What lenses did you order from him?

I have just dealt with George for a pair 59 2dr HT interior lenses,

But i emailed him first to see if he had some already made and ready to ship, he replied within 2 hrs and said Yes, So i paid him on 11th Feb 2016 and they were delivered today 27th feb 2016, so only 16 days to pack and ship and arrive at my home in UK..

So maybe people wanting lenses quickly need to ask first if he has them in stock OR if they have to be made.. As that seems to be the reason for such long waits, as i guess he doesnt make a new batch of lenses until he gets a order for a vast amount..

Oh and the Quality is awesome as others have already mentioned..

61 Chrysler, your post is the dumbest I've read in a long time. I don't think anyone is asking their parts be shipped next day...but when the seller says they are on hand then vanishes without a word for 2 years - that's a bit much.

Powrflite, Below is the order I placed. Other than the acknowledgement, I have heard nothing since.


Greg, yes it has come in ok, George.

Hello Greg, yes I still make the licence lens and I will throw one in for free. So your Total with shipping would be $816.00 us and the easy way to make payment is with www.paypal.com using my email address georgelaurie@bigpond.com
Please be sure to leave your postal address and a note telling me the parts you are ordering, I copy from there to my order book. Thank you for the order, George.

George,

Thank you for the photos. I do not see the license plate lens mentioned – do you still make them? I will need one if you make them.

In any case, I would like:

57 Desoto tail lenses $300/6
57 Desoto front park lenses $150/pair
57 Desoto Hood emblem $190
2 DR dome lenses $35/each x 4 = $140

Hey GregCon. Thanks for the insult. I guess that happens when someone gets as frustrated as you. I have to ask, didn't you do ANY research before you dropped almost a grand on a vendor from overseas? According to you I type the dumbest things.... maybe next time someone looking to buy will read a few posts like this one and make an informed decision.

Good luck getting your parts.

Come on guys, don't get into any arguing..

Some people have a had good experiences and some have had bad.. I for one would rather go without or find a used part or try and find another channel. I don't want to get into a long winded story but if any business can't be bothered to email back then it kind of reflects their ethics in business. I think if he definitely has something sitting on the shelf that he can make good money from straight away, he will reply with a fast reply. If it's not on shelf then no point in replying... Not a good way to do business but unfortunately that is actually how some people do things..
I got sick of it and found someone else to make me up a V and the charge was a nice surprise for a one off. Even my delivery price was 1/4 of the cost and from the same area... If I didn't do that, I would of definitely bought one of "Mikes2nd" V's which look really nice..

But yeah it's not worth arguing about.

I am seriously out of pocket with this guy, he has $500 of mine as well as the original steering wheel from my Fury and a second wheel.
I paid him my side of the business transaction in June of 2010.
Since then it has been an unbelievable list of excuses as to why he could not deliver what I have paid him for, and he has ignored 10 emails that I have sent him since 2013.
This is beyond just being a useless lazy person-this is blatant theft.
Yes I am pissed off and have kept it under my hat until now in the hope that something good might come of it if I stay patient. Wrong. I have had enough.
The bad experiences of George taking honest people's money and then not delivering what is promised litter the internet when you google his name.
More than enough for any logical thinking judge in a court of law to rule in the favor of the complainant. And that's where I am heading.
Glenn.

A note to advise that George has finally returned my parts and investment that I paid him in 2010.
6 years of progress down the toilet and still I have a cracked steering wheel, but at least I'm back to square one.

I got my order from George today. These are replacement and spare lenses and emblems for my 60 Imperial. I will post pics soon. I haven't looked at all of them yet but the tail lens and eyebrow emblem look awesome. It is hard for me to believe an Aussie in the QLD jungle is the only person on the planet making some of this stuff.

Nice work George Laurie.

I can vouch for the above advice, order with some lead time! I am going to place another order soon.

Someone needs to save us from George Laurie. If only the next person he robs, breaks all his fingers!
