We hardly dare to mention this in case of scaring it off, it's so new.... but this is our new body & paint shop, Vintage Paint, Body & Collision.
It's New. The stuff is all leftovers from "before", the stuff that was worth something to us but not someone else... enough "this and that" to piece together a New Shop.
This big paint booth is the biggest find next to the building. A godly friend had an extra dismantled in pieces that he needed to get out of a building he leases... something we were ecstatic to help out with.
The building at 150 NE Kelly is another wonderful matter. It's been vacant so long the City of Gresham had to OK a bodyshop moving back into the bodyshop!! And the building is so perfect for us because it was the perfect shell just waiting for us to move our stuff in, no changes required! Or at least, no big ones.... we ought to have had to run electricity and gas and air lines everywhere, not to mention punch holes through the roof for venting, intake and exhaust, etc, etc, etc.... so relatively speaking, all of that big stuff was already in place.
But that's the technical jargon, right? Basically.... it's perfection in a box that was just waiting for us to press through all the obstacles and God in His mercy gave us the strength (we didn't know we had left) to do just that.
We're a family in business together!!
