Default Greetings from Serbia

First of all I made a mistake with my username.
It's RestoRad instead of RestoTad lol

Anyway, my name is Nebojsa and I'm from Serbia.
I've spent crazy 4y in US from being truck driver and seeing 48 states to working full time in a hot rod shop, attending SEMA show, building an engine for AMBR contender and finally saving enough money to go back home, buy apartment and start my own shop.

Who says there is no more American Dream. You just have to work hard for it. Hard as driving 280000mi in less than 16months truck driving. Working overtime for no extra money so you can use equipment and learn
as much as you can on your own expense.

Finally at the end after I decided to go back home I had to do what I promised myself at the beginning. I have to go attend Wray Schelin's metalshaping class because back home I'll have very limited resources equipment-vise and I need to know basics.

I did just that. Went up there, took his class, went back to Chicago, bought everything at Eastwood I can fit in my 1967 Pontiac LeMans so I can have at least some start.
Came home, did everything I planed and after two years in business I'm two years booked in advance.

Shortest story of my four years in US I ever told 😄


PS: I do miss everything but Carolina Reaper Biff Jerky the most 😢😢😢
