I finally received my reshelled UM2s today. In Ear Customs has had them since 5/25, so it was exactly 60 days. I will post pix and my impressions of their sound/comfort once I've had a chance to spend some time with them. My initial impressions are good though.  
Well, I finally became so fed up with the lack of communication that I sent the following email:   To whom it may concern: My name is Kurt Hertel, and my order number is above. My order was placed (and you've had my $ since)5/08/13. You have had my Westone UM2s and my impressions since 5/25/13.

I've decided to take the opposite approach. Maybe if I don't try to contact him, he'll have more time to actually complete my order. When I have contacted him, he either lies to me or shines me on anyway, so what the hell.  
I'm glad to see this post. Notwithstanding my frustration with their lack of communication and wildly inaccurate time estimates, It really is about product quality for me rather than timing. That said, soon maybe I'll forget I even ordered them, and when they arrive it'll be a pleasant surprise!  
bump.  
I was checking sources for custom reshelling other than In Ear Customs, when I noticed on Cosmic Ears' website that they are pretty emphatic about requiring open-mouthed impressions be taken for their products. Since that was different from what I thought I remembered the recommendations of In Ear Customs being, I  reviewed the directions I received from them for taking my own impressions, and sure enough, they recommended a closed-mouth impression "if you plan on...
