Where it Interiors by Shannon & Krist Kustoms

I've seen Krist post once in a blue moon but, I havn't seen Shannon's posts in a while. Are you guys still out there? Is business volume keeping you guys away? I originally joined this site for the info and insight you two provided. Please let me know what's up. Anyone else feel the same? Let's let them know.

Thanks,
Robert

My understanding is that when Krist got a contract to write a book, the publisher insisted that he stop giving away his advice for free here on HR.Com. In fact, I think he posted on that at one point...maybe you could use the "advanced search" feature to find that post if you are really interested.

I've searched back a ways (2007) and did not find anything about a book or reasons why. Not saying it doesn't exist, but rather that my skill with search engines sucks. =) I have found a few posts this year for Krist but it's been quite awhile for Shannon. I did however find a Facebook page for Interiors by Shannon if anyone wants to look him up.

Thanks,
Robert

I'm here. I don't visit the site too much anymore. My business has taken me in a direction that has put me behind a desk with a computer and telephone A LOT more than the inside of a car (where I would rather be). Because of the time spent in front of the computer at the shop, I really have no interest in sitting in front of a computer at home. I am working with a national distributor for my parts line, if they pick it up, I can start working on cars more, and find my way back to the site in the evening. I was just doing a little computer work, wrapping up some 2009 stuff and popped on to the site...

Not doing the book, my father wrote a book for the same publisher years ago and got screwed on the money that was owed to him for a couple recent pressings. So I backed out......................I have had thoughts of doing a video series on my own...............if you want it done right, do it yourself.

Good to hear my memory wasn't totally fogged on that one. I had done a quick search and could not find the post I was referring to above, so I began to think I might have just dreamed that whole book scenario.

And I think your idea of the video is spot on. Much better medium for your craft than still photos and a lot of text.

Thanks for the update. Congradulations on the success of your products, that's a great revenue builder. Most of the chopper guys loose their money on the wild builds because of time/talent involved, they make their money on reproduceable parts. (OK, they do t-shirts and TV too). Our loss but, I'm glad your still around. Going to do a Facebook page?

Thanks,
Robert

No. To tell you the truth, I hate the social "networking" sites. I had a MySpace page for a little while and it drove me insane! Being in a business that involves a lot of my time, I put a very high value on my personal time. I like to have a good divider between my business and my personal life (a giant brick wall maybe?) I refuse to give out my cell phone number to customers, never give out my home telephone to customers, and when I run into customers during my time off of work, I try my best to not sound rude, but I avoid all business talk or car talk. I try and not let my business consume my whole life!

I had a "What's Going On" section on the website last year, but I got too busy to keep it updated. Maybe I will bring back that section of the website...that would probably be the closest thing I would do as far as a personal blog.

Your video

Shawn,

We have spoken on the phone several times over the years about upholstery as I too work in the field.

I also work in broadcast television production (25 years plus), burning the candle at both ends for too many years. (Upholstery 8am-2pm, Television, 3pm-12am).

If you do decide that you are going to get involved with video, feel free to contact me here if I can offer some advice or insight.

Andy P.

Shannon's shop is just down the road from me and when I spoke with him on the phone a few weeks ago, he said the economy hasn't hurt him yet. He's still booked till spring 2011. Shannon is a one man shop and said he doesn't have the time to post here. When your good, your in demand.

Jim
