      I did this with parts laying around. You did this in your mind.

      Which is why if you do it right... you switch it ALL up. Reason I haven't even touched this is because I know it's not something that would take a month to do. Doing **** right takes a long time.

      I think he was deployed.
      I still haven't made any progress on my version either. Got sidetracked by a MKII project, which... maybe ironically...does not have single rounds.

      I love single rounds, but this particular car is getting only minor/cheap cosmetic upgrades, since it's a low-budget build for HPDE/AutoX/RallyX. If there's time and money left over, maybe.

      Did you really just say that if anyone builds a mk2 that you like, you'll buy it from them?! Do it your-fuc-king-self! What the hell is wrong with you? Are you that lazy that you sit around hoping someone does everything to your taste and wants to sell?

      I think he's talking about a MKII-look single-round "kit" for a MKIII. As in, if anyone can figure out how to make those photoshops into a reality, he'd be interested in buying such a setup.
