Hey Pedro,

Now I am confused, I thought you already did the billet links???
I explained in a privious post that I stopped updating this thread.....but not everyone follows me on instagram.

So I figured I would catch up this build thread will all the instagram updates.

doing a few every other day as I have time.

Re: M3pedro's Trophy Build

Re: M3pedro's Trophy Build

Before and many hours after...swipe right.... couple more hours to go.... But why? You ask.....Iím not a builder, donít own a shop, this is not a SEMA truck..... this is really just to challenge myself and for the pleasure of building something unique that myself and others will admire the work and skill put into the finished truck when itís all done. Then of course then pleasure I will have pushing this truck hard when itís done. But donít think for a second I havenít questioned my sanity many times during this build.....as the hours tick by making these arms what keeps me going is whatís starting to emerge from this block.... canít wait to hold the finish arm and then see it on my truck.

Re: M3pedro's Trophy Build

First shock pocket done! This has been quite the learning experience... made a few mistakes but that is part of the process. Important thing is that now I know how to do it better....
