i cant believe they are having this hard of a time making a set of pistons theres only so many ways they can screw uo before they finally get one right for a pistn manufacturer they suck at machining

Damn man. These pistons better be right this time!!
I have been off FF for a couple of months but I am glad to see the project spi is still going strong. I cant wait to see it when its done!!
On a different note, I bought the Posder coating gun you were looking at and its OK but I think I am going to upgrade to a better one.
And lastly, I am no longer using my spi so if ya need any parts from it give me a shout. I'll probably only charge ya shipping.
