been working on a little project lately, trying to get it together in the next 6 weeks.
You could call it a "build", but it's not really anything that's 'custom' or 'epic' but it's still something I'm loving and I thought maybe some of you guys would appreciate it, and give me some pointers too!

I can't wait to get the engine block ready to go!
