I use GoDaddy as my host they are as cheap as they get at 12 per year (100GB). 99.9% uptime, and you hit the .01% I guess! Now go grab a lottery ticket!

I've been thinking about this, through the day. Being spinal surgery, would you go through her back or tummy? Also, the depth of the nut; I'm thinking that a short incision of 75mm in unison with the depth may restrict how much you can move the tool, when in place. And, don't forget about that tape stuff that's wrapped around/near joints, maybe having to cut through that madcap stuff within a narrow deep incision may prove difficult.

Hi eco,

My plan was to go through the back, the joint feels way higher than I expected, when I bend Ginger forwards the joint feels extremely close to her back. I was originally thinking of two parallel cuts, however I skiped the idea on the basis of having a flappy bit in the middle will need to be glued back in several stages otherwise it pulls the other cut apart. The worst bit, and I hate it is cutting the webbing tape stuff, I do a perfect cut in the TPE with scissors, then I get to the tape, it is impregnated with tpe and difficult to cut, I score it with a scalpel, at this point it normally goes wrong, more often than not I slip and take a chunk out of the perfectly cut TPE, now what was going to be a simple glue and hold and nothing else required, has become a glue, filler, and maybe a heat gun exercise.
To be honest yesterday morning I was planing on finishing the other repairs off and starting her back, then I was called out to go into work they had a power cut during the night, I had to go in and make sure everything was running, which was a bonus really, the place was empty I spent 3 hours in the fitting shop making myself a doll stand for one of my hanging silicone girls.
Then I had to pop and visit a forum friend, at 9.30pm last night I thought I really can't be arsed, so I cleaned her and powdered her, glued all her new blue nails on. I do keep looking at her and thinking it ain't actually that bad is it worth the hassle, it's not at a flopping forward stage yet, more when she leans forward past a certain point she continues on a slow decent.

The back joint appears to be horizontally in line with the elbow joints when stood.

ie. tilt her forward and backward, and her elbow joint remains in the same place relatively speaking.

I use this method to find where I should be holding/pushing when I need to tweak her back arch.

Thank you

That's a nice observation, algaeholics. I'll have a grope check Vicky later, for science.

This. I'd be tempted to hold off, making sure I'm careful with her, until such a time that she may suffer further damage from a weak spine.
I have a question about tightening the nut on the spine: how tight and is there a chance of over tightening, knowing the spine has a lot of weight to deal with?
