Do most of you who do the mailbox mod remove the chip tray, box and chip loader tube all together? Any purpose in keeping it installed? We all know that DaveOmak gutted his MES and it looks very roomy. I'm finishing up a major mod on my MES40 and need to decide if I should put most of the tray related items back into position. If you are removing everything, any fancy heat deflector / element protector residing above the element? Maybe just a water or drip pan big enough to umbrella most of the element?
