Rainbow Pen

Postby Leez » Thu Sep 27, 2012 7:34 pm

I don't know if anyone has heard of them, but Rainbow Pen in the US and Malaysia have some pretty cool stuff for Lancers and it's all CHEAP! Well cheaper than everyone else anyway. You just order from their Facebook page :)

Gotta be careful with regard to the material and constructions of some of the body kits bits.
Cheap does not equate to good or quality or useful.
So do your research people.

That being said, they're in Malaysia and there tends to be a handful of factories that pump out this stuff from moulds that on sell to resellers... so shop around, do your research and be aware of shipping charges as part of the costs...

Yeah I figured. But I heard about them from the 9glancers forum so they can't be all that bad can they?

I heard that all lips and stuff are cut in half for shipping though. Anyway, I'm going to order stuff from them, I'll report back with how it goes.

We've known about RainbowPen for awhile now.

He doesn't produce his own stuff. Actually he acts as a medium to get stuff out of China.

As many of you know, China has their own version of eBay called TaoBao. Quality of stuff there is hit and miss.
You cannot buy from TaoBao directly since they only trade in Chinese and through a China based bank account.
But you can make use of what is called a TaoBao agent to arrange for stuff to be bought. They take a 10% commission on everything. Payment is then via Paypal to the agent. They complete the transaction for you and then send you the part.

What RainbowPen does is he buys from TB is Bulk.

We'll take the Alloy Fuel Door for e.g. He retails his China knock off for US$89.

We did a GB here in VIC direct from China. I too bought a 2nd fuel door to paint match to the car colour. The knockoff cost A$60 delivered. This is the price for a couple. So what RBP pays is again lower.

So now you know... .

RainbowPen has good and bad reviews if you look hard enough.

2 tips here:
1. Ask what happens if your delivery goes missing.
Or
2. if the body kit after cutting (for delivery) no longer fits.


Our old friends here ARS Bodykits also do the same body kit parts but alot of people have had problems lining up kits that have been pre-cut.

In this game, you get what you pay for.

I'm from Malaysia and knows him... the cutting of bodykits is due to the lower shipping rate....

and yeah he doesn't produce the goods but it gets imported from china or taiwan...some of it is even cheaper than the one in Kuala Lumpur, Capital city of Malaysia... many people from all over the country go to him to buy...

some items are good and some items might no be up to your expectations..

but overall i would rate him as a good guy and he treat buyers as his friend..

just my opinion...

These guys now use a new courier/shipper. Parts are sent painted and in one piece (without cutting).
