    Another instructions site is now off-line sadly, but if you go here:
    Internet Archive
    and type in the site: tfracetrack.com you can find archives of that site and its multitude of instructions. I've been still using it that way, but I guess I'll give the Botch site a try. Bizarrely, I've never come across it before, so thanks!

    I can't wait for the day we get all the holes plugged so we're the same way. It'd be nice to have a one-stop shop for all your typical information.

    Beat me to it, Optimist! I just realized that transformerland was not on the list and came back to add it since it's quite useful as well. In fact, is there another site to ID parts using colors and such?
