Prusa i1 to i3 upgrade - The old boy

Before I started to strip down my old Prusa I thought I'd take a few quick photos for reference and so show the wear/age of it.

Yes its a mess
 The blue parts are replacement parts. The black stuff under the printer was an experiment I planning on trialling, but never got round to. Its high density foam designed for noise isolation, the idea was it would absorb some of the vibrations and reduce wobbly because of this.

You can see the cracking near the washer which if adjusted or removed would likely cause it to break in two (like the endstop did).
