Just want to warn everyone not to buy anything from SMB Composites. The bloke who runs it is called Smudger and is not to be trusted.

He owes me money (a refund for a bootlid I agreed to buy from him but he never delivered) and knows he does but won't give me what's rightfully mine.

I know of several others who have been ripped off too - soon he will be taken to court to recover the money.

PLEASE EVERYONE, DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM HIM. HE CANNOT BE TRUSTED AND YOU WILL LOSE YOUR MONEY.

He pissed me right off. Ended up taking him to the small claims court to get my money back.

i spoke to him to get stuff built - loads of ideas, never produced anything - wasted loads of my time and basically pissed me off too. I would never think about using again.

i fitted one of his single skin bootlids yesterday, and in comparison to the old curley one i had its fit is spot on.


he may have a few shortcomings on the customer service side of things, but the quality of goods/fit is definately on target when compared with other companies

Am I right in thinking that Dave runs ABS Motorsport? or am I getting people muddled up?

i know this is a bit old, but just to clear one thing up..

from what i remember (it was ages ago) smudger had campylobacter which is a very serious form of food poisoning where bacteria in the gut starts eating the linings and you bleed alot in your #2's, in extreme cases it is fatal. it is highly contagous iirc and most doctors wont even see anyone who has it.

his website seems to be mainly offline these days which is a shame because he made excellent quality bits. better than most "high street" mini parts places too apparently..

And just for the record - If I'm ill to the point I can't deliver my goods / services, then I won't take folks money. Anyone that does is not to be trusted IMO.
The small claims court episode mentioned above is caution enough me thinks.

As said above, Dave Kimberly, nice guy, good prices, good to deal with, good products, why bother even considering elsewhere?
