Hi Volks,

I just got off the phone with a sales person from Mid
America Motorworks.  And the news is not good.  I
figured I'd try to order the lower inner quarter panel
rust repair panels, and the sales person said they are
NLA. The part # didn't even appear in their computer
system.  And that due to licensing restrictions from
VWoA MAM would not likely carry ANY Type 3 specific
parts.  So as RMMW's old stock is sold off, (the
selling of the old stock may not happen either, as
RMMW had the licenses with VWoA, and they were not
transfered to MAM), that will be it.  Unless another
distributor can pick up where RMMW has left off.  

Maybe after the intergration of the companies is
complete things will be better.  But it doesn't sound
too good :-(
