I usually do a build thread but this time I just didnt feel like it because of how long it took to build. My next build (2.2) that I do I will do a build thread for. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about the build or for any other pictures you would like to see.

As someone who has a Pimpcane knock off I say nice build. I have been running the 1/2" aluminum channel for my spine & have had to rebuild it once after a 6' free fall that messed up the spine. Keep up the good work. Going custom is what the super class is all about.
