Mr Hell, I have thought hard about that and I believe it's in my best interest, mentally, to let it go clean. You are dead right: if I pull that trigger, I'll have five reasons to keep it before the smoke clears.
Greasemonkey, I'll get a photo up as soon as I get the Marlin out. I know where it is, but I also know all the stuff that's between here and where it is, so it might take some effort.
Thanks again, everyone!
