    I’ve recently had a few people reach out and ask why I don’t post build threads anymore and the short answer is since I turned this hobby into a profession a few years back I just haven’t had the extra time to devote to it. So this thread will have to do, gonna post pics and info on whatever I happen to be working on any given week. Mods, I hope this is ok? We’ll start with a few past projects and eventually catch up to the present.
