i could have aluminum in 3 days, machine it, get it polished and anodized, find out it looks like crap, and be out $10k, and have to start over after 3-4 months into it. for years that's what i did and i never had issues. its only in the past 1-2 years the quality has become a major problem
Although I'm very sure Justin would never do this, I think one way to build the GS-X and BHSE more quickly, would be for him to just build them any old how, without quality and anything resembling class. How many would sooner him do that ?
