I think the reason for this poll is to decide if there is enough interest to even proceed. If everyone waits then it may not get started due to lack of interest.

So the 2j kit comes with no compressor, so does that mean it is cheaper than the 5m/7m kit that does include a compressor? I have no problem getting a rebuilt compressor on my own.
Edit: Just saw Jims response on the first page. Posted this after only reading the first comment. I may be in, but waiting on a response for something else first.

I would definitely want the spare condenser and hopefully a dryer. I had to have mine repaired (although its still working). For the JZ (or any of them really) is it possible to just get the lines condenser and dryer, basically the mechanical parts only? I never used any of the electrical parts from my original kit.

A few things to note. If you look at the previous poll, the numbers are HUGE. Astronomical numbers I've never seen in our community before.
For those of us that have done group buys before, it's like a GB of some holy grail reproduction MK2 parts.
My read of the previous poll is "like" votes.
If numbers show some improvement this month to make this a viable GB, we might be good.
The AC industry starts getting busy in May, so if the deadline gets too far into summer, there can easily be parts shortages. That occurred last time. And I sure don't want to spend my summer working on it.
George offered some social media exposure, which might help the numbers.
It's more like the wrath of GB coordinators. I know that George and myself have been down this road many times before.
It's time that we spend to get suppliers/manufacturers on-board, quotes, etc, then suddenly we've got the world of
no-show, and we can't even get to a minimum production number. Our time is burned, real buyers get nothing.
And it really puts a wet blanket on our motivation to do other GBs.
I got some spare parts from the first GB, so I can supply items to previous GB folks.
I think there's a lesson somewhere for people riding high on the US dollars weakness for 4+ years.
Be honest with yourself. If you think by, say, end of April, you'd be good to go, then vote accordingly.Jim

I guess I panicked a little, from my phone it said the pole was closed already. From my home computer I see that is not the case. I am good when/if it happens.
