Sensei Jeron Kalani Sambrano

With a combined 30-year background in non-professional automotive mechanical work, autobody craftsmanship, and accessories industries, I bring a wealth of hands-on experience and expertise to the world of automobiles. My journey in this field stems from a passion for all things automotive, which has led me to explore various facets of this industry.
My journey began in the non-professional automotive mechanical realm, where I honed my skills in repairing, maintaining, and customizing vehicles. Over the years, I have gained extensive knowledge in diagnosing and fixing automotive issues, making modifications, and enhancing the overall performance of vehicles. This experience has equipped me with technical proficiency and instilled in me a deep appreciation for the inner workings of automobiles.
In addition to mechanical work, I have a background in autobody craftsmanship, where I have developed the art of restoring and refinishing vehicles to their pristine condition. My expertise in autobody work encompasses repairing dents, scratches, and other forms of damage, as well as applying custom paint jobs and body modifications. This skill set has allowed me to transform ordinary vehicles into automotive art. Beyond the mechanical and autobody aspects, I have also delved into the world of automotive accessories. I have a keen understanding of how various aftermarket parts and accessories can enhance vehicles’ aesthetics and functionality. This knowledge has made me well-versed in selecting, installing, and customizing accessories to suit specific automotive preferences and requirements. Beyond my professional pursuits, I have a deep-rooted passion for amateur on and off-road hobbies. My enthusiasm for off-roading has led me to explore rugged terrains and tackle challenging trails, pushing my vehicle and driving skills to their limits. This hands-on experience has given me a profound appreciation for the capabilities of different types of vehicles in diverse environments. Furthermore, I am intensely interested in remote and radio-controlled drifting and crawling. These hobbies have allowed me to apply my automotive knowledge and skills to miniature versions of vehicles, fine-tuning them for optimal performance in various conditions. These pursuits have provided me with a unique perspective on vehicle dynamics and have been a source of endless enjoyment. In summary, my 30-year background in non-professional automotive mechanical work, autobody craftsmanship, and accessories industries, coupled with my passion for on and off-road hobbies and remote/radio control drifting and crawling, has cultivated a well-rounded expertise in all things automotive. Whether working on full-sized vehicles or mastering miniature counterparts, my journey in the automotive world defines my dedication to excellence, continuous learning, and unwavering love for all things automotive.
