Re: PROJECT BEAST FROM BACK EAST
I know all the details cause I ordered all the parts Smile

I'd love to tell you - but I won't. Lets just say, you won't be disappointed AND it will be the first of "it's kind" in these parts.

Re: PROJECT BEAST FROM BACK EAST
That right don't tell them anything. Corey's relationship with Poly Performance came in really handy, thanks man.

Jason, would a case a beer or some smokes get you to dial in a ring and pinion for me.

Re: PROJECT BEAST FROM BACK EAST
I was just out there and that looks sweet!!!

Good job Ian.

Before you guys start on the tubing let me know and we'll shuffle stuff around so you have more room. Clint's in camp again, so Ian gets front row center as this mofo's moving along. I'll see if Paul can bring his skidsteer in there to make things easier. :wink:

Don't worry Clint, I won't put it outside, just over a little bit.
