You are the man! The part I was most concerned about the gauge swap were those retainers. You just took care of that concern! Many thanks!

Long night, but I was able to machine 20 sets of retainers. That'll make a pretty big dent in the list. Hope to have most of the panels, LED rings and retainers shipped out tomorrow! I've never shipped this many things at the same time; I'll try and keep the tracking #'s straight and PM them out once everything is set.

YYYAAAAAAYYY FOR BOB!!!!!!!!

In case you didn't know, he took it upon himself to have the retainers made in case we break the factory ones doing the install. Who does stuff like that? Bob does stuff like that.

Quick update - 20 panels shipped on Friday. Pretty much most of the ones with EL panels only, it took a lot more effort than expected to pack and ship! So I did those first as it was easier to 'assembly line' it. I'll get the ones with LED rings and / or LCD panels done hopefully Monday.. I made it into work today to machine the remaining retainer rings that I needed for the rest of the orders, so now I have pretty much everything I need (except time!). I haven't sent out tracking #'s, but most likely they'll start showing up on Monday. Hope everything arrives safe!

Awesome! Shipped another 3 this morning (the remainder of the EL-only crowd that had paid), still haven't had time to get the LED rings together for those guys.... Once again, nuts at work so it's tough finding time when I get home late.. I cleared some space and got the supplies out this morning, so I'll get them done soon!

Oh - anyone figured out a use for the little black thing that comes with the retainers yet.....?

Hey Bob, at least for my order, feel free to take your time on it. I won't be doing the install till after the first of the year anyway.

I haven't seen it yet, but I'll guess retainer removal/insert tool?
