  1. What's the metal washer looking thing for airflow?

    cuz there's no tooling around, full stick and full throws all the way and always on 4s!

    AsSouls, That's a plastic cap for a Snuff box. I use it to keep the elevator in place in the axial direction.

    Thanks, Greg!

    Airflow, I REALLY wanna try this wrapping - but not sure where exactly to find that kind of paper.
