Default Ricks Vapor Works Tank?

How long did it take after you ordered your tank? I'm going on 7 weeks? I know they cant have merchandise setting on shelves,

Im just wondering how long It took.

Thanks Kirk. Don't get me wrong, Im not bashing a Vendor, Just asking a question.

I thought Rick posted an update on their build times here, but I couldn't find it. Here's a link to the post he made on pro-touring 3 weeks ago. Said should be 3-4 weeks, if not contact them to see where it's at.

I would expect that this is their busy time of year. Mine took much longer, but that wasn't Rick's fault.

Have you called them to ask where you are in the 'queue'? That's your best bet... Hector there is great to work with!

I agree with everyone else..my Vaporworx tank was so worth the wait...and boy did I have to wait but it wasn't Rick's fault....turned out to be a bad deal witht he Vendor I bought it from.

I am not pointing any fingers but give Hector a call...he was SUPER RESPONSIVE and helped me get my tank by working with the vendor who never paid them. He was a super cool guy and really nice. Give him a call and make sure first and foremost they got the order for your tank...
In my oddball case, the order never went in and then when it did it took forever for Hector to get paid from the guy...lol. Never a dull moment!

But again, you will be so happy when you do get it!

Dave

You'll love it. It was one of the few plug-n-play items t i've installed that needed no tweaking on my part.
