just ordered hybrid cap and new wire.
i figure since most of the new parts i'm getting are gloss black, i'll keep them like that and make the gun dust purple with gloss black parts. some of the new smaller parts will be anno'd purple. but overall i will save a pant load of cash.
i dont have much left to buy before anno. b-day money will pay for the frame and on-off, once i start getting allowance again (end of sept.) i can save and buy the rest. and i have one more paycheck coming (about 60 bucks). so i am confident i will be finished before 2007. hell, maybe even cup
