    Oh man. My only desire out of that list is the paint.



    I do look back nostalgically on the old iron, but my wish list stops at about 1994 or so.

    I suspect the shift knob got stuck during the iron cross maneuver, and he can't go to the ER for extraction because corona...

    I dunno. I just have questions. Woke up with a searing headache, the handle installed, and sore in all sorts of places. Oh! And SOMEONE did a shit job on my legs and nails while I was unconscious!

    Sorry boys, I was hoping to join the pitchfork gang, but install was about 20 mins, didn’t bend anything, correct parts, finished product looks good.

    I feel for those who’ve had issues, and based on her treatment of those with problems I can’t say I’d order anything else from her.

    @MESO she definitely is not.

    Just sent my back for a refund since the handle had a few gouges. Didn’t want to deal with an exchange. Will be fun to see how long it takes to process a refund. Hope she doesn’t try to charge a restocking fee...
