give me a heart attack or hurt/kill me yesterday THANK GOD !!!!
i was working at a semi-truck trailer repair shop (we fixed the trailers), last week a kid that was helping me fell of the ladder, then another kid that was helping me got drilled in the hand (he put his hand where i was drilling) and then a kid yesterday had a 116"x48" panel hit his arm and slice open his main vain in his arm. i didnt cause these accidents but i was a party to them all. after seeing the kid yesterday bleed like a stuck pig i had enough. was fine by me anyways cause i had an interview at a BRAND NEW 4-wheeler shop that builds custom sand drag 4-wheelers like in the pic. i put an app into these guys months ago when they first opened and thought they had hired people already. then friday as i was about to leave work the cell rang and they wanted me to come in for an interview YAAAAAAAAAAAAAA today was my first day and i love it. got to put a pipe,jet kit and airbox kit on a LTZ 400. wont be doing a bunch of major service work from the sounds of it. i will be doing boring jobs etc but thats cool by me cause i want to learn that skill (school taught me how to bore/hone but you dont have long enough to get a real grasp of it in 3 weeks) but anyways im a happy camper and hope in a week i do a good enough job that the owner keeps me on. hopefully i will eventually be building/help to build these monsters. one cool plus is that they go to the drags sometimes and i will be going along. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
anyways check out the 3 sand drag 4-wheelers sitting in the showroom. the orange one is AWESOME and the pic doesnt do it justice (nor the others)

Very cool. I know that those things have a lot of performance potential with the kits that are out there.

Congrats

When you want to get out of bed to go to work, you are in the right place. Too many people are not. So, big congrats on finding one you enjoy! 8)
