    almost all Aluminum 4TEC

    Been awhile building this one but had to share the pictures. ball ends front upper arms and axles are all that's plastic for the most part anyway
    someday I will finish it all up.

    I actually used stock plastic top plate and rear brace for pattern to cut the aluminum from for the most part. then later done some trimming to get close to the graphite. its been awhile back.
    I plan to do a few more later and have them powder coated. not sure how that's going to work but going to try it.
