Need A Job? Hot Rod Fabricator Wanted

By Jen

Editor

They say the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is hopeless for finding work, unless you’re content with temp-retail, mall-Santa, or Wal-Mart greeter kinds of jobs. But here’s a sweet opportunity for an enthusiastic gearhead: how’d you like to build cars at a hot rod shop in California? Bear Metal Kustoms is looking for an experienced fabricator/metalworker to help with pre-1970 restorations and customizations. Jason of Bear Metal seems to be despairing a little at the lack of response so far, so guys, the time to jump on this is now. This job looks like a really sweet deal in a near-perfect garage environment—independent shops are always better places to work than dealerships or national chains, in my experience. Plus it’s a great excuse to move to the California coast, if you’re looking for a change. Contact info for Bear Metal is contained in the thread!

This could be you

I would help If I lived anywhere close…If you ever want to open an east-coast shop let me know, I am more than willing to help open one.
I had to get rid of my shop for e.p.a. rasons, the land I was on was contaminated and I had to get rid of it… sucks.
Still looking for the next shop…

Check out my profile and leave me a comment if you are interested or know anyone wanting to start something.

Thanx, powerdoctor

I would look into this if I though my skillz were up to par… Don’t get me wrong I know I have some skillz just not on that leave as of yet. A job like this one can not come half stepping! Besides, I am in Chicago anyway. Don’t waist Jason’s time by calling him unless your serious and you have the skillz to back it up… I know he has gotten a few people with no skills (or wack skillz) calling him… I don’t think he is ready to be teaching anyone anything at this stage of the game… So keep that in mind be4 you bother da man!

Oh and it this offends anyone one… I guess your skillz are not up for the task anyway and you know it! So stop cring… LOL
