Salvage repair

A skill, or set of skills that makes it possible to turn T1 salvage, and stuff like spare parts, second hand parts, etc into T2 salvage.

Maybe toss some faction rig blueprints in the mix and have these skills required to manufacture them.

no ! if this would exist then nobody will have T1 salvage anymore xD

The only way that makes sense is to break t1 salvage down into a lower tier resource, and use those fundamental building blocks to build the t2 “intact” parts.

For that matter, all of those building blocks should probably be able to be constructed from base minerals. It would possibly damage the salvaging industrial sector to do that, but it makes sense lore wise.
