I have a weakness for logos, so however small my business is or was in the past it had to have certain recognizable style. Probably I should have asked a professional to do this properly, but I like to play with computer myself so I always preferred to create my logos myself. With more or
Finally I found a moment to clean up the shop a little bit and take pictures of it. It is far, far, far from what I want it to be, but because more than a couple of customers already told me “Andrew, you got yourself a nice shop here!” I decided that there is nothing to
What has happened here? Nasty road accident? Fire? Nope. Sunroof on a Ford Edge has developed a rattle, that’s all.

I must admit, when I first came to Grande Prairie from Ireland the whole need for “brake service” seemed questionable for me. I thought I’ve done any work imaginable around brake system from simple pads replacing to repairs on ABS systems or overhauling calipers or hydraulic cylinders.

This is the piece of equipment that turns any shop into car repair shop :-). Now I have my own car lift, woo-hoo!!! Special thanks to the guys from Due North Lifts for nicely done and fairly priced installation job.
