Putting A-line lamps in a plant that has never made them before and counting on them to hit the fill rate necessary to keep Lowes, Wal Mart and such... Brilliant!!!! I don't know who they think is going to run those things, but I can tell you with great certainty that you won't be seeing a lot, if any experienced mechanics wanting to pref hire into lighting, especially in the middle of nowhere in a bad climate for way less money. Best of luck, guys.

And yes I do have 4 Harley, 1 boat, 1 R.V. camper and 3 cars but I don't have rental properties. Maybe I will try that next....
