Some of you may remember Nick being made redundant just before Surf & Turf this year, well that was on the Thursday, by Tuesday of the following week he was up & running again, this time being the Director of his own company and so far, so good....

Smile - Brilliant News

All the very best of luck with the new venture.

I suspect this time of year will allow lots of alloy wheels to slide into kerbs so hopefully you'll be busy enough.

Good luck - "Too close for missiles, I'm switching to guns. "

Thanks for your support guys, Quite often it takes a kick up the arse to make a decision like this & without doubt a very supportive better half too Ban Men The decision was forced with a very unexpected redundancy due to my employer going insolvent.
Having worked with some excellent main dealerships in the area myself & two of my ex colleagues decided to set up Top Gun Paint & Alloys Ltd (also employing one other wheel repairer) at seriously short notice which in itself gave us lots of challenges, We were very fortunate to have support & confidence from a number of prestige dealerships & hopefully this will give the base to work from which we have already built.
It's early days & this time of year is very challenging working outside & is traditionally quieter, If we can tread water until Spring then I'm quietly confident things will move forward.
It's been especially trying with timing with the wedding coming up & buying our first house together but Ellie has been a rock & it's made us stronger.
Once again thank you all for your kind words Thumb

All the best of luck nick. Been thinking of doing similar myself for a while now, im sick of working far too many hours a week just to make a dealership lots of money & earn a poor wage myself.
