William Albert Brinkworth
Son Bill joined our family business as soon as he
graduated. One of his many strengths, was his
unique ability to teach new staff the many specialized
techniques of this business, and also the coordination
of projects through the shop. Shortly after
Bill joined our team, we were commissioned to build a
series of 1:8 scale Rolls-Royce models, for a client in
Japan. In the development of these models, it
became necessary to sharpen our skills, in the art of
metal casting and finishing, as the majority of the
fittings, were to be in Sterling Silver. Bill
immediately took the reigns of the metal aspect of this project, and quickly
developed the skills of wax carving, metal turning, fabricating, and electro-plating.
The success of our Rolls-Royce project, was in no small part, the result
of the efforts, he put into that particular program.
However, there was never any doubt in my mind where his
true interests were. His real
true passion was always in the field of automotive body
design, specifically, the customizing of import cars.
Bill now works on full size vehicles which he completely
designs and re-builds to the customers own personal
requirements. He now heads his own automotive business "BC
Auto Salon" here in Langley BC.
