    Turning the body shop over to just working on old chevy trucks, 67-72 specifically.

    Along with the new venture we're also going to be offering 4x4 fabrication work. (any years for that)
    Custom bumbers, lift kit install, rock sliders, tires, tire carries...ect.
    Plasma cutting/welding and tube bending too.

    Pick up and delivery is available.

    We're located in central VT, just off of I-89 exit 5.

    Posted this in the New England section for all the obvious reason's.

    F-in sweet dude. But can I make a request that you up it to 77? :D

    Good luck!!

    P.S. The North east Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs is having their bi-monthly business meeting in your neck of the woods. At Killington to be exact. It's open to the public if you'd like to check it out. :smile1:

    Nice! A little far for me, but I'll keep you guys in mind.

    You should become a vendor to help sell the stuff you make in your fab shop.

    Yep, good idea.
    Working towards that goal from the beginning. :smirk:

    Did I mention our labor rate is only $30.00 an hr? (business building rate)
    Hows that compare to your local body shop rates?

    Thats under 1/2 of the normal rates around here!!!:eek1: :bow: :deal:

    The body charged me about $70 per hour and I've seen local shops charge anywhere from $60 to $90 per hour!!!


    Next time the truck needs work maybe the trip would be worth it... :waytogo:
