“Hard work always pays off. There is no such thing as a get rich quick scheme.”
Everything they work on is a custom job so trying to determine the time needed to do the job correctly is very difficult.
Realizing after many years in business that Bodie feels he’s gotten to where he wants to be albeit it has taken a bit longer than he expected. His new upper control arm line helped him realize his ah-ha.
