    Yeah, I'm splitting the building with a guy with a really clean operation. I'm afraid I'm gonna be too messy for him. And we have been looking into the indoor classic car storage already. I know a guy in Orange County that offsets a big chunk of his rent that way.
  6. so are you backed up on work, and are you setting up appointments?

    Congrats man, if your really going to get serious your going to own the trimming business.
    One of my best stories is how you came to do the Vicky, and along with Jimmy's fabrication, nothing gets more attention on it than your work. Thanks and stay healthy man, because your going to have a lot of work to do.

    Austin's loss is L.A.'s gain, Sean. I consider myself lucky to have had you work your magic on my Riviera's and my Suburban's interiors. You're an incredible talent and a rock solid human being. Can't wait to see what the future holds for you.

    Congrats and good luck!
  23. It's been a few years since I've talked to you in Austin when I was on my 5 year walk-about and I'm glad you've enjoyed one of the most scenic drives in the world... Alaska to LA on your walk-about!

    Was wondering what you were doing these past couple of years... and happy to see you following your passion for fashion!

    That video was a whole lot of diesel love
  25. Well, it's certainly good to hear you are getting set up in a good facility.
    You surely know how to do the job correctly, so with you dictating your own terms I expect you'll be covered up before too very long.

    We constantly get positive comments on the Caddy interior. It's holding up well and we still absolutely love it.

    We will offer a reference from satisfied customers any time!!!

    Thanks for a great job, well done.

    Thanks for the support everybody- it means a lot! I'm excited about all the opportunities and the potential in the new place, and looking forward to being active in the community again. The current tenants are moving their 'sweatshop' out as we speak, and the building will be ready for me in a few weeks. Unfortunately, I'm not ready for the building. I've got a mountain of work here in Austin to climb., and a mess of logistics to figure out. But 2012 is gonna be a good year for custom interiors!

    Tman- My folks are still up there, but looking to get out and spend the rest of their retirement in a more temperate climate. I fantasize about buying their place in the forest. Just gotta pull together an extra couple hundred grand and I'll be your part time neighbor.
  28. Sean,
    Good to see you are still with us.

    I don't have two nickles to rub together but if I did I would sure as hell like to have one of those old bates seats that were hangin' on the wall at the old digs. Those were yours weren't they?

    Listen fellas if you haven't heard of Fatluckys this is the place in the world to get the hydes for your ride. If its fatluckys stitchin, its bitchin.
