Yikes , Been there. Hope all is well .
On another note , you could have just made the best decision to respond on the MA. Since it appears you do have quite a few members in your area . Perhaps you can find a few "Trustworthy ,Punctual and Responsible" members to help you out bigtime, especially the phones , shipping ,website and inventory control.You have someone that fits each category from what I've seen over the years. Assuming you find someone from here , you might gain an awsome source from a more technical perspective too. It's no big surprise that most if not all peds end up modified and the elite few who know what they're doing can probably assist you in a big way. Finding help from the MA pretty much guarantees someone who has the drive and passion to help the hobby survive and that in itself would benefit everyone , myself included . Good Luck
