Hey all -
Back after a bit of an absence, but I bring good news...
Turns out we won't have to pay 18k after all - the original seller has agreed to sell his own mo-co head along with the dolly for only $4k, for a total of $10k! Not bad! This is very close to the original price I was looking for.
So let's rally the troops one last time - if we have 5+ interested people I'm going to go ahead and pull the trigger.
Anyone interested, please PM me with your e-mail address if you haven't already done so!
