Not to kick a guy while he's down, but perhaps you're missing the point? From your join date looks like you've been around the community almost a year - perhaps it is time you learned to work on your own mechboxes? Teach a man to fish etc...
I would emplore you to find someone in your area whom can sit you down and go through the process (I would start w/ v3, very easy to work on) of upgrading a mechbox. The only thing that is really an "art" is shimming, but it's a straightforward (if time consuming) process once you've done it a few times.
Free your mind and your ass (and wallet) will follow! Good luck!
