    Time for some collabs? Tavaresh, Hoovies, Car Wheeezard?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FriPilot says:

    WooHoo! Congrats brother. I’m sure you’ll be a big success!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Willmer says:

    You go for it Ray from the UK !

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blackened Motorcycle Adventures says:

    I wish I lived in your area… I managed several auto shops and brought in good business, but I live in Texas…

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DAD TYPE 2 says:

    I'm so very very happy and proud of you Ray, I've been saying this for a long while, Ray open your own shop, I absolutely understand about timing but believe it or not it's much easier to get out on your own than you'd think scary yes, but absolutely possible. What you will find out is you will say to yourself, I should have done this a while ago. Lol bravo I want to see getting shop and set up and all the stuff up to turning the open sign on and welcome mat rolled out!!! Great news Brother you can do it! ❤️ 🙏

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Solomon says:

    Hi Ray I wish you the best of luck Ray on your new adventure 😀

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zburkst says:

    Get a Bluetooth ear piece so you can answer phones without necessarily stopping work until you can afford to have someone as a receptionist / service writer

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Everett Brodie says:

    Super proud of you bud 😎

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jl Brown says:

    Find an old, retired mechanic to act as your service writer. You'll thank me later, when you're not getting drug off of your jobs to deal with customers and phone calls. Also, old mechanics are damn knowledgeable, and need something to make them feel useful and productive. Heck, they may even work for free😘

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Vance says:

    Ray…. great news brother. Nothing more empowering than to take charge of your own destiny ! I wish all the best for you going forward. It really is hard to find a competent and honest auto mechanic. You have proven your weight in salt over and over in your videos. God bless. Watching from Baltimore

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Me Here says:

    Good for you Ray, fair warning though, you will end up working harder for your new boss than you have ever worked before, and you will reap the rewards accordingly.
    You've got your head screwed on right so I have every confidence in you mate, go for it.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Barry Thomas says:

    Eric The Car Guy went down the same path. Renting commercial space can create problems.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SpiffiestJester says:

    You have a rare opportunity to show future customers your inherent integrity with a simple YouTube link. I've been watching off and on for the last year or so, and I was honestly surprised you weren't running your own shop. I am so happy for you and am sure you've got this. I can't wait to watch your success unfold.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Butler says:

    Congrats on the next stage. Been watching for a while, can't remember how I first found your channel. It can only get better from here(hopefully, right?). You got this, my friend.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Snarski says:

    F the haters,in almost 40 years of wrenching I know of at least 6 or 7 guys I used to work with that started their own businesses all did real well. So you will do good.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PrestonIan says:

    You mean an honest garage!!! You will have people queued up for months!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rugerrottie's adventures says:

    I'm super happy for you, Bro. Good idea not giving info out. You would have dudes showing up and hanging out like you were at a nightclub or something, haha, or some negative people trying to steal your stuff. Best of luck to you. Keep up the good videos and journey in life .

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars myfastcars says:

    Ray PLEASE, PLEASE, get some sort of alarm/monitoring system for your new shop. Its an added expense BUT, well worth protecting your expensive tools and equipment!! Bless you my friend! Good luck on your new adventure! Bill C

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars C J says:

    This will be an awesome venture for you Ray

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Goessling says:

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Woody Dyson says:

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars shanezy111 says:

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rote Rakaten says:

    Good office people are worth there weight in gold.

    Do the hands on stuff untill you make enough to pay yourself and the new employee plus a third and all Bill'made. After the third yrs wage is saved bring in a another member and just continue to build

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Hogan says:

    You can handle it,I hate people that hate people that succeed,your the man!,!!!'!'!!!!!!!!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars EDDIE JONES says:

    I am Sure you will do well me and my family take our cars to a local Mechanic who is honest like you self he only has one lift and a M.O.T. bay and one Employee and his wife is his Secretary but he his all ways Busy I think it’s word-of-mouth getting your business

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Dean says:

    Super excited Ray!…Let's do this!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars T M says:

    You got the stones for this Ray. Don't doubt yourself. Your work and work ethic speaks for itself. God Speed.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darren Wheeler says:

    Can't wait to see the results of this. Given your work ethic and the previous exposure, you should do very well. All the best for this.
    Pick Eric O's brains as much as you can on the day-to-day running and as others say, get someone to manage the front desk etc. so freeing you to wrench.

    You're 5000 miles away but you can work on my car any day.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike says:

    Good idea to get your internet domain before announcing your business name. I've seen businesses open, only to find that a domain squatter in Panama or Djoubiti already bought it for twelve bucks and want thousands for it. There are unscrupulous people that search tax rolls for new business and see if the logical domain name is available. You can appeal through ICAAN but it is very expensive and requires specialized legal help.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars storm .thompson says:

    I wouldn’t tell anyone anything they are here for the videos. I would like to say it’s hard to believe people try to bash you and get you fired but it’s not hard to believe. People just enjoy being negative all the time best of luck 👍

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kai'Vala Jenva says:

    Best wishes for a positive future endeavor. I believe.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph King says:

    I hope the location is even a few minutes closer to your home. I used to spend 3 hours (90 minutes each way) driving too and from work and it was a killer or almost a killer when I fell asleep on the freeway one day. Drive safe Ray. 👍👍

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Whitmill says:

    Great decision ray, you will not regret it one bit. With your reputation, you will always find people seeking you out from verbal recomendations.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars P Chris209d says:

    Any chance this could be an repair shop/ tattoo parlor/ sketchy bar with biker babes that bring grown men to their knees?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars christophero1973 says:

    Yeah! About time, best of success.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    This is so awesome Ray. I know you will be successful you are a great mechanic/Technician and a great person but most of all honest. That is the most important part of you. Best wishes in your career journey as a business owner. Stay tuned because this is going to be the first of many great videos.👍👍

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars slopoke channel says:

    Sends ray box of disposable floor mats good luck 👍

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris's race porting says:

    Best of luck. Take the time to setup the way you want now so you don't have to revamp the plan later down the track. You will succeed ✨️ .

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Rock says:

    If Ray can find employees with the same high standards that he exhibits, he will have much more work than he can possibly accommodate.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alaskan Lone Wolf says:

    WHEN YOU GET TO… SEEMA…. YOU CAN SAY HI TO ….. MATTS OFF ROAD RECOVERY ….AND …ROBBY LAITEN….. AND MAYBE EVEN …..FAB RATS

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SWCC Bakersfield CA says:

    Right on in the face of the haters man. You are a winner with pride in what you do. I believe you will dive in and get comfortable and make it huge. You will hire people and impact lots of lives. Just never forget where it comes from ☝🏼👊🏼👍🏼.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Woody says:

    Good for you Ray!
