First, I’m not a past or future customer of Randy Domeck dba Indianapolis Fabrications. I do not personally know him. He does have a website and posts access to it with every post he does. I don’t understand why, if you have questions about his product, you just don’t give him a call instead of trying to drag him through the mud. I bet he would be willing to answer any questions you have short of providing part numbers. As for starting his own thread about the kit, well, probably very limited interest which makes it not worth the effort. Making these “Kits” is not his primary business. BTW, the contact off-line is due to the no buying/selling policy outside the Swap Meet
Second, the original thread you refer to as no longer being credible is in fact archived by being made a “Sticky Thread” and locked so no one can add additional posts.
It’s time to move on. Time for someone to make the necessary parts, document, photograph and publish instructions and a parts list. Bet there is plenty of folks out there in Stovebolt land with the necessary skills and equipment to do it.
It is obvious that Tony292 has an axe to grind so I offer the following suggestion. Contact the site owner firstname.lastname@example.org and vent your frustrations to him. He and only he has the power to offer you a solution.
