For upgrades I got a PE set with barrels off ebay from a Chinese company for $30 along with a deck from a different Chinese company.



Can you remember the ebay store were these came from? $30 seems very competitive and in my price range

The wooden deck is really making things 'pop' Conrad.

Really starting to come to life now...
