Success! - MK3 to 3.9 Upgrade completed!

I have just completed a successful upgrade of my old faithful MK3 into a MK3.9.  She passed all tests on the first try and printed a flawless benchy.  Outstanding job on the assembly instructions.

I like it! Nice Job..
So what's the difference in a MK3.9 and a MK4 then?

The difference is - the double precision stepper motors do not come with the 3.9 upgrade 

the MK4 upgrade kit includes the stepper motors

The Mk4 also has a Posh (Die Cast) Frame and a Posh (Die Cast) Y Platform
apart from aesthetics these die cast parts don't do much more than the lasercut parts on the earlier printers
