Rus, Owner of RustBlasters, has over 40 years experience in autobody & paint & is also a ticketed mechanic.
Having worked as an Emergency Road Service Driver, with BCAA, for 28 years, he learned the importance of providing exceptional customer service with honesty & integrity. These are qualities he values in his personal & professional life, using them every day in his business dealings.
You will always get the very best deal Rus can provide, without sacrificing quality.
In his spare time, Rus enjoys flying his remote helicopters & drones, restoring his '58 Impala, riding his Vulcan 1500 or binge-watching TV series on Netflix & cuddling his kitty, Scratches.
Cara-Leigh has a strong background in customer service and puts it to good use at RustBlasters.
She treats each customer with the dignity & respect they deserve, ensuring customer satisfaction every chance she gets.
Cara-Leigh is also in charge of marketing, bookkeeping, purchasing, payables, receivables, cleaning, shopping, research, reception, payroll & keeping the boys in line.
In her spare time, Cara-Leigh enjoys volunteering, movie time with her best friend, going for hikes, riding her Virago 1100, container gardening & cuddling with her puppy, Chick Pea (see below) & her kitty, Tiko.
Jay is a talented & fun addition to the shop. He has been with us for 2 years now and is highly skilled in metal fabrication. He has always wanted an auto body shop of his own so Rus better watch his step! LOL
When Jay isn't working in the shop, he is busy doing a custom restoration on his 1970 Type 3 VW Notchback 1500S. He promises it will be "the sickest VW on the streets" when he's done!
Jay is also an animal lover and has his sweet pup, Bailey, to shower him with affection. Sorry ladies, but his gorgeous girlfriend, Danielle, has his heart so he's definitely off the market. ;)
Brandon is such a pleasure to have around. This guy is the epitome of mellow. He's only been with us a few months but we hope to have him here for years to come.
He is a jack-of-all-trades, professionally trained in auto body and paint, as well as being highly skilled in mechanical and sandblasting. When you need something done, he can be counted on to do it in a professional, calm and thoughtful way.
Brandon is happily married with 3 boys, aged 7 and 6 and 1 month. He is utterly devoted to his beautiful wife, Kristin, and a very involved father. So sorry, ladies, you just can't catch a break here, can you?! ;)
Chick Pea has literally no sandblasting, auto body or paint experience & only interferes with production and efficiency when being too cute & cuddly to ignore.
In her spare time (which is all the time), Sweet Pea can be found cuddling with her Mommy, enjoying treats, sleeping, greeting customers & posing for pictures.
Chick Pea's area of expertise is in providing emotional support, stress relief & brightening the day of everyone that visits RustBlasters.
