As someone who knows no one in the panel beating World, I really appreciate the podcast. It's interesting to see the many approaches and points of view you'd otherwise not see.


Thanks!

Thanks for listening in, glad you're enjoying them. If you're in colorado, lookup craig_the_welder and clarkgilliecustoms on instagram, both guys are in colorado and are into shaping. Clark has been on the podcast, and craig is always posting what he's working on.
