I created RodsShop back in the early 80’s, I worked on everything from lawnmowers, bicycles, motorcycles to cars. It is amazing the business I had just from word-of-mouth, I had so many things to work on that I practically needed a warehouse for a shop.
I did all of my work out of our house garage but between then and now, I have worked for Firestone, A round-track racer, an import custom shop. I even have experience in the heavy equipment industrial world. I started off on fork lift trucks, not only driving them when I was 6 but working on them. I later got into heavy equipment such as excavators, back-hoes, bulldozers and more. I even have worked maintenance in huge plants.
I got into customizing motorcycles and cars. I have built and restored quite a few vintage cars and street rods. I have over 40 years experience of being a mechanic and auto-body craftsman. I have been ASE certified in many automotive areas and with all my experience, I wanted to be able to share some of my knowledge for those that are Do-It-Yourselfer’s and for those that generally want to learn.
