Au contraire, mon frere. I was just trying to be helpful. I have no idea what parts might be valuable to the MV restoration guys. You could give them a chance to salvage some of what's left, if it will help their restos. I kinda think that an original tub may be worth saving, just because it's original... even if it's in sad shape. But maybe not. You can buy a complete repop tub from the PI (MD Juan), but I understand that originality is highly prized by the MV restorers.... Please don't get mad at me, I didn't do all the mods. I just rescued it from the woods of Montana.
