A Personal Invitation

I get don't even like to stop and ask for directions...and yet

deep down, we all know how helpful guidance and direction can be.

You have been wanting to start or finish your project for years - to complete that dream restoration - but time, money and the right information always seem to be in short supply.  What if I told you that more money and more time were NOT the problem?

Here’s where I come in. I have over thirty years of successful building and restoration experience and have enjoyed a lifetime of incredible mentors and instructors.  My life's mission has become to demystify the process of getting great results for anyone who cares to take the journey:

  • Simplify Complexity: Folks love to complicate things - makes the "teacher" seem smarter.  I like to make things easy - break down complex tasks into manageable steps.  Sure, some things take practice, but very few things are truly "difficult" and even a difficult task can become easy with guidance and practice.

  • Transparent Process: I take you through every stage, including the 'rough-draft ugly' phases, offering clear explanations and step-by-step guidance so you can achieve polished results out of the gate.

  • Nurture Greatness: I am 100% certain that everyone has untapped talents and abilities. My approach is all about building on your natural gifts to help you become a skilled and confident craftsman. Saying "can't do it" is a four letter word around here.

When you are ready to start honing your skills, to get that project moving and then become the envy of your an episode, subscribe and let's turn your hands and your mind into those of a craftsman.

“The knowledge I’ve gained far outweighs price of admission.”

Jeep restoration is unique and finding resources can be challenging and often frustrating. At times I felt alone, and struggled to make a repair. Portrayal videos make you feel like you’re right there in the garage with them getting your hands dirty. I can watch the video(s) while following them step by step at my own pace. Being able to take my GPW to shows and events is AWESOME! Teaching about its history and honoring those who have served gives me a deep personal pride.

I had recently purchased a 1943 Ford GPW and I had never restored a vehicle before. I was excited but overwhelmed. 

Patrick's shows are loaded with great information and he has been very responsive to follow-up questions. With a project that will take me years to complete, Pat and his episodes are a great source to keep me motivated and moving forward.

I look forward to every video because there is always something that relates to a project I’m working on. From body and hammer work to welding, there is always advice and encouragement on giving something a try. Information on all systems of a military vehicle, engine, electrical, body or drivetrain. Outstanding guidance for anyone interested in the hobby of restoring military vehicles.
