How about a 10-12-14 (arm with handing clamp but no stand) -22 Pearl Export? Could strip it totally and likely fit in one box, shipped from Seattle area.

Re: Cool MIJ Kit

Thought price was way high until I see it includes Free Shipping. That's $75-100 at current costs. Makes consideration closer, but think still a bit pricey for me at least.

Re: Removing surface scratches

Assuming you have some original rods, take them to a hardware store and ask them to check the thread size and pitch. If you do not have the rods, take one of the lugs and ask them to check that...

Re: Repair Project

MUST RESIST. Do not need another project.......... Seems like a better deal might be possible.

Missing hardware can add couple of hundred to restoration costs.
