Well here we are a couple weeks after officially opening our doors for business. The Open House we had was kind of a rush as we were finally up and running with the new website and all our sales systems in place. The announcement was made Thursday the 16th of July and Saturday the 18th was to be the gig. Friday was beautiful and the sun was shinning but that changed on Saturday as the summer torrential rains came down with a vengeance. The day started out with me arriving at 7:00 in the morning to get the place set up and to my surprise I found a small porcelain gnome waiting patiently in front of the showroom door . . . what could that mean? Turns out Little Dave Lohr hopped a flight out of Ohio the night before so he could attend . . . I love him, I just want to pick him up and squeeze him until he pops like a grape! Anyway it rained all day and that kept some cars away but for those who did show up we had a great time. Thanks to our friends and families for the support. Needless to say the turn-out was a much more personal experience than we expected but at the end of the day it was considered a success by all. We’re planning another event in the next couple months as the dust settles and we have time to put it together properly . . . . so stay tuned!
As the world turns inside the walls of the Shine Shop, I’ve started reviewing applications for employment opportunities and have some prospects in mind but I’m not done yet. Anyone wanting to submit a resume for consideration please do. I’m looking for craftsmen with a well rounded background in all aspects of car and bike building. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now then, not only are we looking for possible additions to our team but we’re also entertaining auditions to accept new projects. BIG or small we can do em’ all! . . . . call for an appointment and we can put together an estimate for your project . . . don’t be shy, call us at (714) 288-1125.
