Of course to the picture of the bindings. I'm not in the business of ripping anyone off. I wish the skis worked perfectly but I haven't even put them on snow yet. If there is anyone in Burlington VT that wants to come look at the skis in the next couple of days then that's fine also. I'm sure sanders will vouch for me buying the Looks, which I can also post a picture of.
I have an extra FKS 155 heel. I asked in a forum or two (not sure if it was NS or TGR) about what I should do for the heel. Most of the responses said that the extra weight from the 155 would make one ski weight a bit more. I would rather have a complete set of bindings, which I was supposed to receive from you.
I know that Armada top sheets aren't very durable:

man i appreciate the honesty. im well aware of the legendary top sheet
quality of armada skis. im sure it wont affect the skis at all.
A heel with a stuck DIN is not usable. I would gladly have excepted a new FKX heel over buying another pair of bindings. Especially if I knew that a situation like this would come up.
I didn't say that I wouldn't need any money. I just felt bad about you not being able to work and shit. I DO need money I told you that in the quote you posted. I just didn't want to get on your ass about it because you were being a chill kid about the whole situation and honest with me. But then:
1. You said you'd try to come up with money.
2. Didn't respond for a month. I sent you a PM after buying the Looks.
3. You said you would come up with more, and that it would help if you sold those boots.
4. You sold the boots for $181.50, which you never mentioned to me. http://newschoolers.com/web/forums/readthread/thread_id/347471/
5. Tried talking to you but I would have to send two messages to get your attention and ask you not to ignore me. (waited a week+ between messages)
And then I resorted to asking other NSers for their opinions because I wanted both RJD2 and I to see who was being unreasonable and to get opinions on what should happen.
I said at the beginning of this thread that I paid $265, I meant shipped. He did send me 10 back because of the top sheets, which I overlooked when writing the thread, so I paid $255. Then the shop cost and bindings.
I never asked for any money back because the toe was drilled too far. If remounting bindings will fix that problem then great. If anyone has their doubts then again, meet me somewhere in Burlington and you can take a look. I know there are tons of kids around town.
The pictures you posted don't show much of the top sheet damage, so here you go.
The stuck heel:
If needed, I can post the entire PM conversation that RJD2 and I had concerning the skis.
