I figured it was time to join the community here to keep everyone up to date with what KoogleWerks is doing and get some feedback.
many of you know, I make and sell metal air dams (or "chin spoilers") the 2002 and other BMW models...with more products being developed and special projects in progress, hopefully this will give some insight and answer any questions.
Working in hotrod and custom car shops as a fabricator for most of my adult life, I've made a lot of "one-off" parts and have learned the hard way, through research, experiment, and seeking out experts in motorsport, design, metalshaping, castling, composites and automotive interiors. From working in a porsche race-prep shop to custom car-audio shop...it has been a wild ride.
transitioning from "project-based" to "product-based" is the evolution that brought about the "KoogleWerks" shop name and line of parts. Everything I produce is hand made. Nothing is CAD designed or CNC cut, just like every original BMW 2002. Thoughtful design, symmetry, fit and finish...none of these things require 3d printers or CNC machines....that said, I'm not opposed to new technology. There are many new techniques and tools that I employ, and being brand or material-loyal is often a handicap. (Most "metal fabricators" don't want to touch fiberglass, plastics, or wood...and vice-versa.) I try to choose the best materials for the Job...and have the tools to work them. I'm sure pictures will explain better than words at this point...and I thank anyone who has spent the time to read this intro!
