eBay FTW!

I have buying on eBay parts for the discs and parts for my simulator project for the past year.  I have haven't bought anything recently or had any trouble but IMHO I am a model eBayer.  I am assuming it is an error but I don't have the time or the energy to appeal it.

I am also not interested in spending time finding alternative sources for the identity discs so I am not accepting purchases for identity discs or kits until this 90 days is over.

Fabric sales are unaffected.  We have one disc mount that is not claimed which can be handled by invoice through PayPal.

Dear obfuscated (obfuscated@obfuscated)
We take pride in making eBay a place where buyers and sellers can come together to buy and sell almost anything. In order to keep eBay a fair place for all members, we regularly review buying and selling activity.
We're writing to let you know that your account has gone over the limits of one or more of our policies. You won't be able to bid on items or use Buy It Now for 90 days. You'll still be able to sell on eBay and to pay for items you've won or already bought through Buy It Now.
Your account was limited because we found a pattern in the number or dollar value of eBay Buyer Protection cases you've opened, because buying policies were broken, or because of other factors.
It's important that you read the item description before you bid or commit to buy. You must pay for any item you purchase through Buy It Now or win. If you have a problem with an item, be sure to contact the seller first so the seller has an opportunity to work things out with you. You shouldn't open a case if you receive the item by the estimated delivery date and the item matches the seller's description.
We encourage members to communicate with each other, but we don't allow spam, threats, profanity, or hate speech.
Here's information that may help you with buying:
If a pattern continues, your purchases may no longer be eligible for eBay Buyer Protection, or we may further limit or permanently suspend your account.
If you have questions, you can reach us by clicking "Customer Support" at the top of most eBay pages.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Disc Mounts

I have gotten requests to show the disc mount construction steps and the finished product.  I am working on four (4) of them currently (only one is not currently spoken for).

Tops cut, 70mL of epoxy poured inside lid

Lids removed to reveal solid surface

Plastic primer applied

Plastic primer cured
Next steps are to PlastiDip and install the magnets.  More pictures to follow in about a week!
