If you don't see them, ask to see if they plan on getting any in soon, (from the repair shop), or if they can find out if they have some in a store near by.
About this site, I found this site in January of this year. (either the 5th or 6th). So my first anniversary is coming up, (I think that's paper and green is my favorite color).
I hope that we can be of service to you and that you can chime in when you see post about projects that you have done.
It sounds like you are have a more than average interest in DIY projects and are investing in the tools to reach your goal. I think that you will gain alot of knowledge just by reading the post and responces of others. The first thing you will learn is that we need a spell check!
