Managed to order some needed Lotus Europa parts.
Should have been simple, but was not as the "Security" measures have become onerous.
I may be the last person on the planet with a home phone that does not accept text of one-time codes.

There's at least 2, my dad being the other one. He still keeps a corded phone by the kitchen table, and that's the one he uses.

Today is a success. :cheers:

Backup 5 days. I ordered a used, returned and not inspected, 3d printer on eBay. Don't know at the time if it was simply unused and returned or very used broken and returned. Seller says it may be missing parts or have broken parts. No returns. I took the bait and purchased a Voxelab Aquila for less than $70 including delivery and tax. I received it 2 days later. It was a used printer, missing a few screws but otherwise complete. Over the last few days, I assembled the printer, and powered it up to see what worked. Fortunately, everything was at least functional. I ordered the missing screws, one bed leveling spring and some expendables. I kluged a replacement spring, replaced the nozzle and the Bowden tube + fittings, and of course some PLA filament. New springs are on order. I spent a day going over the mechanics and updating the firmware. Today I managed to print my 1st test piece, the infamous "test hook". It took a few tries to get the 1st layer to stick but I finally found the magic. I think this will be fun. I already have plans for a few things to print. Here is my 1st test print using Voxelab's slicer program without any adjustments.

99% reinstalled my FiTech FI conversion on my truck for the LAST time.
Either it works this time or not.
If it works, hurrah, if not I will get rid of it as I am not willing to put more time and $ into it.
I had to order one missing one AN-6 fuel barb so probably Tuesday before I know the result.
