Hi!! Thanks for visiting us here at Customikes! =D
I’m a Kustom Kar enthusiast who loves many creative outlets. Kustomizing with a focus on metal, panel alignment and pre-purchase classic vehicle inspections. Some of our work can be seen at www.Customikes.com, and more will come as we fine-tune our new page. I very much enjoy photography, some of which you can see at www.Customikes.artistwebsites.com. For the last few years we have grown our Facebook Company Page www.Customikes.com to serve you, our kustom kulture enthusiast with whom we enjoy interacting. We have a large collection of albums on FB at www.Customikes.com’s FB Page, that our 600 000+ enthusiasts are enjoying,.. and now we are growing our galleries and blogs here at Customikes for your next level of “The Customikes Experience” =D
Since accepting a severance package from my 16 year long corporate job in May 2014 I’ve refocused on a combination of “Fun, Photography and Film”, Kustoms, Hot rods, Harleys and occasional strange projects. My passion is metal modifications (top chops, sectioning, frenching to hand-built coachwork, stainless trim work etc.) On the “Fun Photography and Film” side it was triggered by receiving a camera (Coolpix s-6000) from my wife a few years ago. It exploded my passion for capturing our kustom kulture for you all, especially with my earlier extensive traveling.
In 2012 I stepped up to a Nikon J1 just before attending The Lone Star Round Up for the first time. What a trip and what an incredible camera to capture our kulture with!! I’m also getting really drawn to metal art and started to make some sculptures a while back. You can see some of those efforts on the art page when it is rebuilt. For now you can see some of it in our FB Teaser album.
In 2015, we invested in equipment and infrastructure to support our projected infrastructure expansion. I also bought Final Cut Pro X and will head down the filmmaking road with my new Nikon J5 and MacBook Pro. I’d love to hear what you think about my efforts. =D
I strive for perfection but can adjust for specific needs or budgets as directed to a point. Any build/ project that we decide to do together will focus on the adventure and fun side of building all projects to completion. Most work is billed on a time and material basis. Usually we set up a specific number of hours at which point we meet and go over accomplishments, plan for the next round of hours and settle the bill. The work will progress as fast as your budget allows. Please be ready to tell me how many hours per week that you are comfortable having me work on your special project. Below are some of the thoughts/sayings that have inspired and guided me over the years:
Is never an accident
It is always the result of
High intentions, sincere effort,
Intelligent direction and skillful execution.
It represents the wise choice of many alternatives.
Can be attained if you…
Care more than others think is wise,
Risk more than others think is safe,
Dream more than others think is practical,
Expect more than others think is possible.
Is not the destination,
It’s the continuous journey.
If you only do what you have always done,
You will only get what you have already got.

No matter what happens in my life
