----------------
In 2007 we had our son Blake, unable to work and keep all Blake's appointments for all his specialists going back to work was a struggle. As some may know Blake was born with Trisomy 21 also known as Down Syndrome.

One night Rob had made his own Radio skins out of premade vinyl after seeing "Bowtie" on RCC selling them.

We then bought a small hobby cutter and templated out Radios and started to get into the crawlers.
We were offered a sponsorship opportunity for a course at one of the Rock Crawling competitions.
In those days the sponsors were fighting to have courses named after them. This started to get us some exposure.

We had also started to offer plastic license plates, and the original plates had the tiny tags added to them like stickers. People loved the idea and we sold many sets like that.

Few years later we had Harleigh our first daughter and then 11 months after our second daughter Sidney.

The game of making skins had started to take off in the crawler world , however I had a really hard time seeing the vinyl getting scratched up and ruined so quickly after putting them on. And came up with idea they needed to be on the inside.

We then moved to the East Coast, where I started to look at alternatives in making an inside skin that would
be durable. The first sets were made as 2 seperate layers, this was still tedious and hard for the customer.
We then found a way to make our skins one layer without the trouble of bubbles in between layers.

Now all our skins on the crawlers were on the inside, however always looking for the next cool thing. We now make our skins with a metallic flake, which has an incredible look in the sun.

As of 2013 we now offer the most scale like aluminum license plates in the world, with reflective material and scale hardware. We have Licenses from the 1:1 world for our new scale items that are 3D printed, for the Poison Spyder kits, grill kit for the Axial JK, and PowerTANKS. We have over 15 radio templates, and over 30 crawler templates. We will be expanding our templates in the near future.

We sponsor clubs and events all throughout the year.

We now have our facebook... https://www.facebook.com/krawlerkonceptz

Michelle and Rob :s_thumbsup

I gotta say having a great company (Canadian company at that) around on Socrawl really makes this place feel like it's really getting noticed. I to run a home business with my wife so we could be home with our daughters over the years before they went off to school and can appreciate the amount of work you must have to put in on a daily basis, not only in business but with your kids.

I've gotten out of building comp rigs now but had come up with so many ideas in the past for some skins to send to you guys, I just never went through with it. I wish competitions were a little bigger here, I would have stuck with at least one comp rig. Hopefully with some recognizable names such as yours at some of the local events here will help get some more people out and have a good time.
