I just want to say that the Retro Modding customer service team was incredible :) USPS for some reason decided not to deliver the original package, and instead returned it to sender. But RM were super helpful and ended up sending over another discounted kit so I wouldn't have to wait for the original package to boomerang back across the continental U.S. Whew!
The conversion kit itself was great, tough build and satisfying. I ended up deviating from Xipher's video in several ways, but problem solving is half the fun! Thank you Retromodding!
