Just to explain my 'upgraded' Bandido II microMAX.

... and I got a note from Rusty when my Bandido II µMAX came back from repair and an upgrade about a week or two ago...
My Bandido II microMAX had a broken blue plastic mounting shaft on the Threshold control pot that I spoke with Vince Gifford about in a phone call between Christmas and New Year's. I sent it in to have that repair done, and while there I also paid for the 'upgrades' I wanted.

One was the replacement of the side decals for the control housing as mine had started to peel a bit on some corners, and also to swap the control housing over to a brand new middle and upper rod system. I wanted the better-looking current powder coated rod set instead of the original shiny gold anodized rods it had. New, fresh decals and new powder coated rods were 'upgrades' I was willing to pay for so that I had a more attractive Bandido II µMAX.

Plus, I now have the original anodized gold rod set (with foam grip and arm cup) in excellent condition just in case I come across a favorite Tesoro model that would look better in the 'as-new' condition original rod system.
