    Just put in the Junkyard a buying post for the last 3 parts I need. Will also be looking out as often as possible. Just a grenade, booster, and sinktap left...

    Come October 6th, even though I will be out of town for work I plan on going full throttle into this project. Looking forward to getting this done by mid next year, hopefully. Still waiting on my Male Balance Pipe from Roman's, but it could be waiting for me at home, I'm not entirely sure. We'll see when I am home for a mere 30 Hours thursday....

    Hey @Hopkinsc1 ! So what you're saying is that you're traveling to the UK on the company dime and spending all your free time at British salvage yards!?!?

    @Ridire Firean Ha! I wish I was able to do that, but I will be looking out for parts whenever possible for sure! Also, if another engine buy happens in the future, count me in for sure!

    If I hadn't, very recently, already received the most perfect & complete grenade, I'd be all over this.
