    AK Build Blogs

    Hi all

    Must confess I don't have a blog on my build but as I go along on my AK build every so often I stumble along another build blog with useful pics/info but unless I'm wrong the only way to find build blogs that others are doing is to look at the signs off, follow links to others blogs or try a not very useful google search.. Wondering if it would be collectively useful to just have a sticky at the top that simply has a list of links to build blogs with a basic description next to so eg:

    AK Gen 2, LS3 engine, Getrag XX box, by XYZ person, started build 2012, iva complete XYZ then the link

    That way any newbies that join have a list of reading sites with experiences and most important likely pictures to follow as well as the wealth of info on this site.

    My suggestion would be to start the list and each person copy the list before and then just add their line in the next post if that makes sense..

    Sure @Tommy-Boy would be a good one to start with hope he doesn't mind his example..

    AK Gen 1, Chevy, Getrag, by Tommy-Boy, started 2009, Building an AK 427 Cobra


    Tommy please correct if I have that wrong..

    anyone like my idea or does this already exist and I've not found it?

    Ken
