Bruce began his career in the Air Force as a Jet Engine Mechanic. Upon leaving the military he went to school and obtained his Mechanics Certificate to work on aircraft. Over the next 29 years he worked on almost every type of aircraft; from WWII trainers to multi- million dollar corporate jets. In 1997 Bruce began working for a small avionics shop, apprenticing under his father for several years doing sheet metal and fabrication. In 2007 after a year of hard work, Bruce put together a partnership to purchase the company from the founder, after his retirement. Two years later Bruce left the company and returned to what he loved best; working on aircraft.
Due to a severe work accident in 2012, Bruce was unable to return to work. He had just purchased a Hyundai Veloster Turbo and had time on his hands. At the time, the aftermarket parts for this car were scarce at best. So, Bruce began to do what he loves to do and that is modify. It was on the car forum www.velostertubo.org that he saw a need/want for a functional hood vent. The hood vents were the beginning, and have led to other products, some of which you will find on the products page , and some that are no longer produced. Thanks to all who have supported us this past year and Happy Modding.
