    Thumbs up New Venture

    Having worked for myself for 12 years, then been unemployed for four years, and now having been employed for 3 and a half years, it is time to go it alone again!
    Will be opening my new shop by mid April latest, back doing my beloved classic car brakes, as well as some light engineering, making up of brake pipes and rubber brake hoses.
    I will also hopefully be stocking fully synthetic Silicon brake fluid, the real McCoy, not the crap sold by certain well known brake shops in JHB!
    I already have enough work waiting to keep me busy for quite a while, so it certainly looks promising! And the classic car market, especially on the rebuild side is blooming!
    Wish me luck.

    You may never know what result come from your actions.
    But if you do nothing, there will be no result.

    @Vespa 1,

    there is a post on FB (Trucks and Trailers for Sale in South Africa) which has a load of workshop tools that look reasonable. Check it out.
