What automotive projects do you like to focus on?

Everything pretty much from performance mods to visual mods all the way to lighting and sound system.

What is your favourite Rust-Oleum product? How has it helped with your automotive projects?

So far the Headlight Restoration kit - it keeps headlights looking new. An awesome looking car with fogged headlights looks incomplete.

What is your favorite automotive project you’ve done and how did you accomplish it?

My 95 Mustang GT. Learned a hard lesson on an automotive repair so enrolled in ASE automotive classes. The instructor used my Mustang as almost a teaching tool - it also helped that he raced Mustangs.

Evaporator /heads cam Mustang GT. 

If you could create any type of automotive product/project (with no limitations), what would you design and why? 

A true affordable ceramic coating that works and is do in yourself, for a project that would be to restore a 03/04 Cobra with upgraded info-tainment and sound system. More power too, of course.

03/04 Mustang Cobra.

Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know about you.

I was born in the Philippines.

Thanks for letting us get to know you better, @Tipad5050
