My first two years
My one man F2 repair service began in August 2003, initially as a three months trial. However, I've remained in business ever since, as I had a regular flow of customs from around the world (Australia, Austria, Canada, Belgium, Brazil, Cayman Islands, China, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Slovenia, Slovak Republic, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States). In two years, I serviced one hundred F2 bodies, sold 200 foam kits, received over 100 positive (0 negative) feedbacks on eBay, and had 10,000 hits on my F2 repair web site.
Also, I extended my F2 repair service to include special body and prism modifications, motor drive repairs, and the supply of replacement MD gears and DS aperture control attachment batteries.
Leaving my old job as a telecoms specialist/product manager was the best thing ever happened to me. I can now indulge in my passion, and help fellow F2 users/repairers. No more stressful commuting and horrible third-rate managers.
I like to thank all my past customers, and I look forward to serving more customers and making many new friends in the coming years. I hope in two years time, my long awaited F2 book will be finished.
Happy F2 shooting,
