Even losing those two pin connections should give you enough stability to tie the front and back together based on the rest of the instructions I was looking at. It's worth a try anyway. Besides, in the worst case there is always BrickLink, right?

@gev - I had completely forgotten that Peeron had parts inventory management! I haven't seen anything official but it seems like they are doing inventory updates quarterly these days. Rebrickable does appear to be updated more regularly but perhaps you could add another answer with Peeron as an option?

I went looking this morning and you start the registration from bricklink.com/regCountry.asp?a=SN where you select your country. The next page has quite a lot of information to input, but does not actually require that you input any financial information immediately. I set up my store a long time ago so cannot proceed on that form, and the help files don't have enough detail so it is unclear when or if you have to register your PayPal account or if that prevents entering inventory.

The specific reason that I didn't mention Brickset is that while it has really excellent set collection features it has no real capacity for general part management. The question explicitly asks about parts management which would seem to disqualify Brickset then. Thanks for mentioning it though.

Nope, that's normal. Really. I've got a whole bin of them. :-)

Can you expand on "make sense"? I have seen one half used by itself in both MOCs and official sets such as bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?S=6857-1 mostly as fork/hub connection for motorcycles.
