From across the pond "Mr ESS" had a TOP SECRET job to do for a customer. It was right out of a British spy novel. Like a good spy, Mr ESS did thorough online surveillance of the Stripe-It-All® Installation Tool. Extensive product description, detailed pictures, and action videos at stripeitall.com was so convincing, he ordered one online.
We received the order, shipped it out, and let him know via email, as we let all customers know, that we're constantly wanting text and pictures of customer's results. There was nothing unusual about our request but the email that came back from Mr ESS was mind boggling.
We received an email from Mr ESS along with some pics. He had a HUGE task. Mr ESS needed to install rimstripes on a stable full of magnesium Marchesini racing wheels. Our jaws dropped. Details were initially sketchy and Mr ESS told us not to disclose the customer's name or he might have to kill us. Just kidding on that last part!
