    Occupation, let's here what your doing for work these days.

    I'm starting thread this to here what it is you guys do for a living. I'm sure, I'm not the only one curious.

    I will start. I'm an aerospace welder, out of south east Michigan, for 17 years. I've been welding/fabricating for 25 years straight. Noting top secret here. I build for the A380 airbus, Honeywell, Lockheed Martain, apache helicopters, and many more. Here are some pictures of what I do.






    Yes, those are massive turbos, and huge intercoolers.

    I spend my days inspecting welds. Start out every day looking at on average 500-1000 weld xrays...

    Awesome man, your work looks great.

    I am a engineer for shell global as my "real job" and I own a small performance shop called MDR Performance. Mainly build/tune awd imports (Evo, sti, gtr etc) because I'm one of the few shops near Houston that has a AWD dyno.

    Another view. The console goes all the way through the rear bench seat. I actually took the seat and cut out the center sections leaving two functional seats on either side. Re-welded and reupholstered the seat. Difficult but rewarding work
