    Hi Guys, well I can finally come on here & let you all know what is going on regarding LimeWorks, as you probably read on here we are moving & downsizing to concentrate on our parts business. The enormous overhead involved in building hot rods has finally beat me down. As a result we are moving locally to Santa Fe Springs to a smaller commercial building where I can expand our product line & give the kind of service I pride myself on giving.

    Consequently we will be having a sale of used parts & general stuff that we no longer need . It will be on an Estate Sale style over a 2-3 week period 8-5 Mon - Sat beginning in April (I will post a start date when I know it ) We will be moving my machinery , a couple of cars & stock etc to the new building first , then we will fill the shop & let the sale begin :).
    1 thing we are selling is my frame table complete with 32 Ford chassis fixture, it's big & heavy . I'm taking most of my fab stuff but there will be a bunch of stuff that I have forgotten I own :) that will also be for sale.

    Thanks for your support & I look forward to a Bright future with my Son & I working together as partners in LimeWorks.

    Steve

    Wow! That is serious news, Steve! I'm glad you had a great run and building some great stuff! You should be proud!

    Congrats on the changes and I wish the absolute best for you and Limeworks!

    Now you're going to have to get some cool neon for your new store front to rival the old place! :D:D

    Good luck buddy!!

    Doing the same thing. Builder assured me he is starting on my new smaller shop in the next week, but that's the same thing he told me last summer? I'm downsizing because of old age. I surely can relate to overhead. With your excellent line of parts you'll do great. Good luck.

    No the sign will stay on the building I figured it's part of our legacy to Whittier to leave it up, Our Logos will go with us, I'd like John to make light boxes out of them.

    I am going to try to make it from San Antonio if the date doesn't conflict with the Lonestar Roundup in Austin on April 4 & 5. I bought a bunch of stuff from you, we made fun of each other's speech, and I would like to meet you. I will be watching for the date.
     
  27. And I thought you were retiring and moving to Hawaii ! Good luck Steve.
     
  28. Man, am I ever glad that I had you work on my '32 when you did. I remember how it went: Bring in car at 8:00 am. Drink a cup of coffee. Walk around the block a few times. Come back and column is in and gas pedal and linkage are mounted. All perfect, and out by 11:00 am. Thanks, Steve. I appreciate good service like that.

    Steve, congrats on your move!

    50 years ago my dad said you can only work so many hours per week.

    Selling is unlimited $$$$$ in a week. Working on cars in the shop, negitive income.

    Certainly love & use your products!!!!

    just finishing a Brookville Roadster for L.A. Roadster Show Day Show using your Column & column drop. Great Items with Super Great Look.

    See you at the Roadster Show, Bob
