Take your piston and the pieces and try superglueing it back together so you can better see what you might, or might not be missing.

This one. Only 20 bucks. Comes with little tools too. Easy to use. It's been a lifesaver so far.

Well I’ve spent the better part of the last two weekends searching though the case looking for pistons chunks. I came up with one more decent size chunk and removed it. I’m fairly confident I’ve got all of it out.

Looking at pictures of split evo sporty cases I don’t see where any other chunks could have gone. I was able to look everywhere with that sweet endoscope. I also sucked out all the fluids with a vacuum and clear hose.

Hammer said they will be shipping my heads and kit out Monday! Hopefully this coming weekend I’ll be starting the installation process.

Here’s a little sneak peek of the tank. Should be done mid February.

Base coat of candy silver and the lines taped up.
