Aye....No worries Steve! I completely agree with you. I'm on the hunt right now for a real liner band - hopefully even a real liner as well!! Until I find that I won't take out the repro liner as I don't want to "fiddle" with the split pins any more than I have to. I would FREAK if one of them broke!!
For now - it'll stay like that until I can do the "transformation" all in one shot!

Glad you like it buddy!
