Quiting My Job and Going Out On My Own
« Reply #47 on: November 24, 2010, 03:16:05 PM »

Well after about 3 weeks of some pretty easy yet profitable jobs it's now time to kick it up a notch. I've got 3 complete paint restorations scheduled. The first one came in today. It's a 70 'cuda factory 6 pack B5 Blue car. It's in pretty good shape overall ( Arizona car) and has already been blasted so no hidden suprises. For right now I'm going to do all the bodywork on the shell and get it in final primer and paint the underside, interior, trunk and engine compartment. Later on the customer will bring the rest of the body panels for me to finish.  I was very happy when I found out it fit in my spray booth on the rotisserie. Only about 6 inches to spare though. The other two jobs comming in are a 67 Barracuda convertable and a 68 Charger. At this point I'm really enjoying being my own boss even though I'm working harder than I ever have in my 50+ years. Here's some pictures of the starting point.

You are responsible, you are responsive, you are talented and you work hard/smart.  The word will travel fast.
 
The good thing is you can't go out of biz, it's on your home property.
 
You were planning this when you put that shop up anyway, weren't you?

On another subject, I just finished welding together an extension to a spray booth.  We boxed it out with sheet metal and inserts for furnace filters.  For your education, a furnace is a source of heat.  You may have never seen one.  LOL
 
So he opens the doors,  Hase a painters canvas for the top, made skirts for the extension to the floor.  Now he can put 22 footers in there and be able to walk around.  It cost about $115.00 + welding.

I actually built the shop way back in 95. I was a mere lad of 38 at the time. I don't know that I thought back then that I'd be working full time out of it but I knew I could make some pretty good side money for my toys with it. And i did. Everything out there is paid for so with little to no overhead the chance for sucsess is much better. Now I just hope my old body holds up to all this hard work. azblackhemi2010-11-24 22:05:46
