K3 #2184 (part 1)

It arrived yesterday, but I was too tired to do anything with it last night. When I opened the box this morning, I instantly thought I had made a big mistake getting it in kit form. Lots of little bags with more little components all labelled very very carefully.

I got some courage up after lunch and pulled it all out of the box, everything I ordered seemed to be present, so I took a deep breath and opened the first anti-static bag.

Enough for today. I only panicked once (when I couldn’t find the 2-56 1/4″ screws for the LCD standoffs), and only made two mistakes that I know of (so far) which happened on KIO3. Many thanks to Mario, Marina, Dina, Patricia, Sharron and Ellison for your attention to detail while packing.
