Also they also sent me shorter screws for the bowden extruder block so I was able to screw it down enough to look right. I did pick up some white wire loom wrap to unify the two filament tubes that were hanging freely and the various wires going to the gantry as well.

Hey Josh good luck with school! Hope to see some more live hacks once you're done. 

Glad you got some of the replacement hardware figured out, it's gonna be awesome seeing this monster print!

Josh! How did school go? I hope you did well on your exams.

I'm still itching to see some footage of this 3D printer fixed up and ready to rock:D Have you had time to put some love into it?

Looks to be a solid frame. Interested to see how fast it will run.
My 3D printer is a FolgerTech. I have had it 5 years now. The RepRap Pursa i3.
That sure would help with the large parts when building InMoov.
