    Thanks for the information guys! As for the name, I have the main name part down, I just need to add something like customs, rod & Customs or SOMETHING to the end of it. Of course like I said, I deal with all sorts of customers and lots of high end ones so as far as the funny names or names with cuss words in them, it just wont work haha. Too bad huh?
    Anyways as far as the legal side goes and making sure it's not taken, I have checked to local NC state site with the registered/licensed business names and the few I have in mind are NOT taken and the domain name is still free and not taken either. Of course I will have a business license, garage keepers insurage, liability insurance, and business interruption insurance so that way my ass is covered. So far now I just need a name so I can get some cards made up that also say "licensed and insured".
    As for the name, the only thing I dont know about is the first word I am using (I dont want to say yet) means top of the line, high standards, best, etc. So not sure if I use it along with Customs at the end if people are going to know what it is because hell it could be custom homes, custom house painting or whatever. At least that is what a few people told me but I thought about it and told them that if I am using my 66 F100 all fixed up nicely pulling an enclosed trailor with advertisement and have a nice vintage looking logo then they should get the point. I also want them to know ME and know that when they hear my business name they know it's me and what work I do (reputation I guess).
    Does all of this make sense?

    Best on the block huh? haha Funny. Plaques mean nothing, the work you did and pictures of this work such as the vehicles DO mean something though.

    Floyd Clymer said his mother never worried where he was because she know he was out in the "AutoShed". So that's what I call mine,because that's what it is. But it's not a professional shop,just mine.

    I'd think you'd lose a lot of customers with that-too crude-too off the topic. Still with a town name like Little Chute, I guess it doesn't matter. :)

    It's meant to be humorous and light hearted, I'm just a working Joe who enjoys messing with cars in my spare time like 95% of others here. "It is a curious fact that people are never so trivial as when they take themselves seriously".

    It was between that and "Taintsville", I like to think those in charge of the name made the right choice:rolleyes:

    There's a town near where I used to live in West Virginia called "Mountain" and it used to be called "Mole Hill"- up until 1949-they made a Mole Hill into a Mountai as they say. you can read about it here:
