Welcome to Kustom’s by Kent

Kustom’s by Kent was created so I can record my garage projects and share them with you. I am a mechanical engineer by day and an inventor by night. I am happiest when my hands are dirty, I’m elbow deep in a project, and working on my the latest idea. I hope you enjoy seeing what I’m working on and I am always willing to answer questions or provide additional details. Take a look around and let me know what you think!
