A few people asked for a build thread/pictures of the build. 90% was done
by myself in my basement, the other 10% was help from my friends &
girlfriend. I would like to thank all of them for the support, help &
understanding along the way. So here is the picture collage of the build.
The first half is the 15 month build (Oct 2010-Jan 2012) and the second
half is shows and racing (Jan 2012-July 2013). Added some music, if you
don't like it turn down the volume and enjoy the show.I do not own rights
to music they are..First song by Motley Crue,second is by Shinedown
