    When I was doing the Chevy shows at Brooklands a couple of years back he contacted Brooklands and pretty much told them how they were going to treat him. He was well sussed even at that stage, I believe another local show had him read as well. The car that did turn up was rather amusing. He ripped off some custom bicycle guys a way back as well I heard. It's quite amusing studying work from a few of the companies that big themselves up on social media.
    I hope these people are righted.

    the fact that his FaceBook posts only get one thumbs up at best, should tell you something.
    High tec rods.....elements of the past and the future combining to make something not quite as good as either.

    what happened to building a good reputation over time and charging at the right level for your work to make sure you get paid for your skills and equipment and make a decent wage? greedy society and doing as little as possible for maximum gain is the new norm nowadays
    I mean they even have a tv show promoting this ethos with god like worship for that arsehole alan sugar
    It's the internet , instant fame and glorry by telling everyoe how good you are without needing to prove it

    I met the proprietor of one shop ( same guy as mentioned by Nigel) for the first time at the Hayling show . He proceeded to tell me how wonderful he was, how he knew the guys from Gas Monkey , how he went out shooting with them while blind drunk, yadda yadda yadda .

    When he eventually left one of my mates asked " Why'd you give that **** the time of day" ( cos that's very unlike me ) . I said " I had him sussed after his first couple of sentences , I knew he was a ****, just wanted to know how big a **** he was".

    thats where ive gone wrong.

    i need to step up on my image profile.


    i do think if you tell enough people how good you are,and slag everyone else off,people do actually believe you and put you on a pedistal.you could even be put into the nsra hall of fame as a top builder.

    If you need social media to survive with work its a lost cause, word of mouth soon gets round for the REAL interested parties.

    .....the "next" social media "expert" will be along in oh, at about the rate of one every 10seconds.......

    There’s another one out there I approached and asked them for power steering advice. After five minutes they plainly knew nothing about it but tried to bull **** me into paying them £350 to supply something. They promised to do some research and get back with a bolt-in solution. They never did. I see a lot of people proudly wearing their T-shirts, I think clothing is about the limit of their abilities.

    Still, while the sheep believe everything they’re told without seeing evidence their business will grow....

    i would dissagree with that. id say 90 % of my business comes from social media.apart from using this site,i have jack **** to do with rodding,so i know no one and no one knows me.just how i like life


    if i didnt post pics on social media,my business would probably end. mind thats all i do is post pics,and sometimes argue with the retards.

    you may get all youre work from word of mouth ,but not everyone is part of the in crowd. considering im a sort of rod shop,i dont actually get many rodders here at all.yet theres plenty of folks out there that want work done.non rodders with rods/custom cars
