rao-you seem to be one of the few people that I have come across on here that is familiar with the tsk3 kit as being a snout repair solution as opposed to a preventative upgrade. I was wondering if you could please give me an idea of how screwed up the snout can be and still be repairable by the kit. I haven't seen it yet but my friends snout is grooved and I was hoping to get an idea before I head over to help her install the kit on Friday. I did spend some time searching and haven't found any decent info yet. Just a bunch of talk about the preventative side. It's prob a long shot but some pics of some messed up but repairable snouts would be a tremendous help-Thanks!
