Real slow on the build certainly not making the finish date I had set for myself but she'll be finished and shook down for next season.

I'm really diggin this build. I like how you utilized the shock mount for the 4 link mount. Nice little touch with the toy truck on top of the manifold. lol

nothing really happening to this thing lately everytime I plan on working on it work gets in the way. Team Head Hunter did pull down our first trophy and the truck hasn't even left the shop.

time and money have been on short supply lately. I hung some metal on it as we did a little photo shoot for a shop contest on IG but we didn't win, shop sure looked good or a bit though.
