MM got here safe and sound. A manager at one of the STI branches made the executive decision to pallet and double wrap it, after seeing the insurance total. No complaints here, as it got here without so much as a scuffed leg. Couldn't be happier with the job Michelle and STI did bringing this thing 992 miles to me.
Machine is 98% perfect. A little normal wear on the moat kickout, and a pinhead sized area on the outside loop that needs a touch of red and superglue - no biggie at all. The only thing I can say I wish was disclosed was a broken pop bracket - the coil stop snapped off and was obviously rigged on, and fell apart during the vibration of shipping. I can't complain too much about a $7.95 part, though. Ramps could use a flame polish, but again no biggie. Cab and box are stinking flawless. This thing even has the original schematic intact in the cab, and all of the original paperwork, diagrams and goodie bag.
Already got to work installing LEDs in the inserts. Will get to the box of mods that came in earlier this week - Trolls with LED eyes, LED double-headed dragon mod from PDI, full set of Kerry protectors, Catapult LED board - on Saturday. Super amped.
