Recommended Posts

A subaru buddy and I are opening a custom shop. Orders are piling up and we don't want to work in our living rooms.

Check us out, maybe we can do some work for you guys.


Check out the gallery so you can get an idea of what we are doing.

Pics of the potential new shop.

Im reviewing the lease agreement and what not and going through everything with my business partner.


rent is $1050/mo and its a 3 year lease


its 1200sqft

the garage can probly fit 3-4 cars in it.

has a side office

comes alarmed

the office and the garage have separate heat, so that will help save money

cable/internet available

comes with a bathroom! thats important

good area of town

We work on all kinds of cars. Its customization work with some little install work (like suspension setups and whatnot)

the shop wont really be equipped for heavy duty mechanical stuff. (thats where you come in cranny):thumbsup:


we will be doing alot of retrofitting and other customization work out of the shop. there are three of us that will be there. two of us do the paint and retrofit stuff, the other guy does alot of custom interior work.

Double posting noob^ :laugh:


Looks nice. Make sure that you like the landlord, alot. You are going to be married to him for three years. Some commercial landlords will sign and you will never see them again except when the rent is late, others will check in on you daily and help out. You want the latter. I have had landlords that went out of their way to help me find equipment and supplies cheap, as well and used their renters for business to help them along. Even now, three years after I stopped working there, I have my old landlord on speed dial.
