    I am starting this thread to see if anyone has a few shocking work in progress pictures to share that are drastically different from start to end.

    I've owned mine for four years.

    [​IMG]

    We went from stock.....

    [​IMG]

    To 4" and 35s

    [​IMG]

    To bent frame...

    [​IMG]

    To frame swap....

    [​IMG]

    To posing

    [​IMG]

    To rolled, bashed, and hacked.

    I know supersize75 has come a long way and has plenty to share. How about the others? I know Bowtie once posted a really cool poser shot of 39.5" Boggers and no cutting.

    Who else has progress shots?
