    By my recollection, the chest thumping began only after the negative comments started. This thread did not unfold like a normal build thread specifically because lots of people (who I assume were jealously hoping someone else would not end up with a cheap route to an HP-2) piled in with loads of negative comments. That Moosmeat responded somewhat aggressively may have fueled the fire but he is not entirely to blame.

    The comment about arguing with dealers is especially assinine as the only obvious dealer particiating seemed to be strongly favoring the self-serving position that it would not a successful rebuild unless it involved tens of throusands of dollars of brand new parts from a dealer.

    I have no idea whether Moosemeat has other priorities that have stalled completion of the project, has sold it on unfinished, completed it and is no longer on ADV and therefore not letting us know of his success, or has come across some hitherto unforeseen snag that has totally precluded completion and left him with a very fancy and expensive paperweight. IMO, the latter possibility is the least likely, yet is the only one suggested by most of the recent posters - Looks like a continuation of the pile on to me.

    Hi,I am just a minor to the community.I saw this thread quite sometimeback,back only got to read almost most of it just 2days ago: and saw where the heat started.I felt the effort spend on this rebuilding is what we called,blood,sweat and tears.

    But I think moosemeat needs more supportive than negative feedbacks to motivate him in whatever he has started.Although the negetive comments is not really negetive,it's useful informations and also self concern on how one would take on the steps on reviving a dead pig before beautify it.But its all a different story afterall as it depends on how the threadstarter wants to do it becoz it is his story,and we just happy to read and learnt from it.
    We would just share his glory if it ever did start afterall with the amazing outcome.
    Putting too much pressure on the negetive note,may have demoralised Moosemeat to share the updates on the project here in adv and we all is the one who loose out to curiousity,and victory to those naysayers..

    just my 2cents worth.

    I'm sure the HP2E of Moosemeat is running and very well :evil

    I understand his desire to share his experience with other HP2Boys only :D

    From my side, I'm very happy not to be a GSBoy anymore...:evil

    I've been quietly watching this whole thing unfold and I appreciate Moosemeat's zeal, but the quote above definitely got under my skin

    I should bite my tongue because I know you love the attention...but I'm weak. I know you want to get the trolls back, but most of us want to see you succeed.

    Looking at all these beautiful HP2s really makes me "envious" (even though I don't like this word...) but as I mentioned before, hopefully one day I will be able to park one right next to my GSA ... Hope is what keeps us going right ? ... Congrats on the beautiful work you guys are putting on these "jewels" !
