LIFESTYLE

I've been asked, “What's it like to own and run your shop?” It's late nights, or in my case, days and nights of no sleep. A lot of sacrifice, and a loving and understanding wife. Great clients are a huge part of what makes the work so amazing. When you wake up thinking of the next part of a build, or how to make a part that you can't buy. This is what it's like to run a successful company. I love that my wife calls me the worker bee. It gives me purpose in life. I've learned to never give up on your dreams. And to let the universe guide you on your path. 



The photos below will give you just a small glimpse into our lives.... There is no paid vacation or sick days. No one will do it for you. Its up to you and only you.
