All I had to do was leave the room for a second, and when I came back, it was out. They wouldn't tell me the horrible things that they had to do to her... but I think it involved water boarding (you didn't hear that from me). I was able to borrow this absolutely awesome bracket from Fast Eddie.
Now she's sitting o so pretty, ready for the big teardown. I must admit being a little intimidated by all the pistons and valves and what not, but I'll get through it eventually.
