Default BGE Owners: Look away if you have weak stomaches

Excited this morning to sell my XL BGE this morning for what I was asking for it. As I brought it around from the backyard to the front driveway this happened. Its in about 9 pieces now.

Moving the XL is a two man job.

I picked up a damaged XL and used cotronics ceramic adhesive to put it back together. Been working like a champ for a couple years now. I may have posted some pics on here.

Admittedly mine wasn't as bad as yours appears to be, but I'd try to put it back together nonetheless...

The bright side (if there is one) is that only the outer bottom base was damaged. Its going to cost me about $470 after tax to get the new part. The good news with all the accessories I have, the value is still $1100+.

I should have it back on craigslist in a week or so. This is what Dave Ramsey calls "stupid tax". I should have never tried to move it by myself.

Not the kind of scrambled egg a person wants to start their day with. I feel your pain.
