The package from PPD arrived today and like a ten-year-old freeing a puppy on his birthday, I couldn’t wait to rip open the package! And then cut, and then rip some more, for PPD don’t mess around when it comes to getting their product to you safely. The two sheets were wrapped in tissue, then encased in a sandwich of Masonite and corrugated cardboard, and wrapped in a plastic envelope.
To my unaided eyes, the parts look great. They’ve come just in time too, as next up are the crank pins, which must fit the connecting rods nicely.
