Looks great, but half the fun of building one of these puppies is chasing a spring across the room or crawling under a table for a roll pin. You are WAY to organized.

1st I would start with finishing your build. Then you really should consider ponying up for SM status, this place really is worth the $15 a year. Think about it, in a years time I am sure you piss away far more than $15 on absolutely worthless crap, I know I do.

BTW, how do you like that grip? How does it compare to the Ergo grips?
