Bear with me for a moment as I am going to talk a little about me. I want you to understand who I am and how I can help you.
My name is Rodney Parks, I have been a mechanic since I was 7. That was when I put my first set of shocks on a car. At that same age, I took an interest in motorcycles and lawnmowers. I think I was just destined to be a DIY Mechanic early on.

My real inspiration was when I found a 3.5 hp Briggs lawnmower in the woods near our house. I drug it home, learned how to build a lawnmower engine. The body needed some welding, learned that with the help of my dad. Still to this day, I am mowing with that same lawnmower.

RodsShop Mission

In today’s time, car parts, paints and related materials have sky-rocketed in cost. This means auto repair shops of any kind are getting too expensive to take your vehicles to.

More and more people are becoming Do-it-Yourself, (DIY) car repair specialist to help save money. RodsShop’s goal is to help you and everyone find the be cost effective way to fix your ride.

If you are looking to find a solution to your vehicle not running right. You may be looking to learn how to paint your car, truck or motorcycle.

It could be you just needing better information before taking your car to a shop. Car shops can charge way more than I think they should. The more you understand your problem before going to one, can save you big.

Women and older people get ripped off at auto shops all the time. They assume by your age and gender, that you will not know anything about cars.

That is my mission, to help others save money and reduce aggravation. Working on cars, dealing with repair expenses can be overwhelming and depressing.
