Pelican Parts' Websites under attack...

We are currently experiencing a Denial-of-Service attack because someone posted something in one of the non-Technical forums that upset some hackers elsewhere. We are working dilligently on the issue and hope to have everything restored and back to semi-normal shortly.Thank you for your patience and continued support!-Wayne
