About 1 month ago I cleaned my Large and discovered a hairline crack in the bottom section. Called Bruce. As you all know he is great. He helped me with my dealer and distributer who are also very good, to get a new bottom section. Large is 12 years old. Over the years I have purchased many extra parts. To make a long story short if I purchase a dome and a lifting ring I could have a new large egg and still keep using the old one until the crack gets worse. Do you all think it is a good thing to do or should I just use my existing dome and discard the old bottom? Thanks.
