Work or home? What do u actually do for a job?
Lol I work in renewable energy research. Used to work in an offroad fabrication shop before going to college. Now I do similar fab work on the side, out of my garage, for land cruisers and other yotas.

A good chunk of this metal is actually heading down under in a container. Aussies are probably like 10% of my business

Do it. Lots of room for creativity.


I had a blast designing/prototyping and building my trailer. Roof pops like on those too. I want to build them because all the commercial offerings are build like shit. I know building them so stout, like I did, is cost/time prohibitive though.

Ah. Im the only one (that I know of) who has engineered a quick release urethane mudflap. US people like them, but the Aussies love them. Other brackets I sell go there too, but the flaps are most popular.
ah killer! do you sell through stores here or just online?

need to get into hiluxes 70 series cruisers, more of them than anything on the roads here

I wish. Only 70 we can get are 25 years old and cost like 50k after paying for someone to import. Also, there's limited 70s here, so I'd need a solid connection with a shop in AU to make production of anything worth it.

Lol. I can't get in bed with arb. I love them, but they're big enough they will just take my design, make it cheaper, and burry me.

Not that they can't do that now, but I'm working up in a very niche market now and when it gets bigger, the plan is to expand quick and do some serious branding/marketing.
