Master metal fabricator; custom car and motorcycle designer; TV personality; author; publisher; apparel line distributor; addicted to anything on wheels; lover of the open road and now add to his rap sheet – Workshop Hero Nation”Ace” — Bryan Fuller is a true jack of all trades.
When it comes to metal, Fuller who has been with Workshop Hero for several years, has got it covered. Known in the industry for his expertise, knowledge and good-humored antics, Fuller is like your first bike – hard to forget.
As a young teen, time spent working on a car with his father ignited Fuller’s passion for his craft, one that for years he considered a “hobby.” Then, with the sudden loss of his father at the age of 20, Fuller with a recently earned biology degree from University of North Texas in hand, made the decision to take his passion and make it a career.
Fuller’s background in metal shaping is extensive. After time spent at the Wyoming Technical Institute where he learned advanced technical skills in metal fabrication, he spent several years working with hot rod designer and star of TLC’s “Overhaulin”, Chip Foose. Fuller was a member of the Foose Design Team that won the prestigious 2003 and 2005 Ridler Award for Best Car in Show at the Detroit Autorama and was also a lead builder on TLC’s “Overhaulin” show.
From there, Fuller launched his own custom bike and hot rod shop Fuller Moto in downtown Atlanta and was chosen to co-host “Two Guys Garage”, the oldest automotive “how to” show on Speed TV.
Fuller, in true Workshop Hero Nation Ace-like fashion, has an extensive list of awards and achievements including a win of the coveted GM Design Award in 2010 at The Specialty Equipment Marketing Association (SEMA) Car Show with the “Impaler” and the 2013 Birmingham World of Wheels Best in Show with a one-of-a-kind Cadillac hearse, named the “Thundertaker”.
This past winter was a busy one for Fuller who returned to the airwaves as the host of “Naked Speed” on the Velocity Channel, a new show dedicated to the design, build and ride of unique custom motorcycles. He also released his second in a series of how-to-build books, “Full-Bore Welding” published by his own publishing company, Full-Bore Publishing, AND, Fuller unveiled his most ambitious custom car to date at the 2014 SEMA tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada; a 825 HP all-wheel drive 1932 custom Ford roadster called the “Double-Down” Deuce.
“Bryan’s experience and passion for metals, combined with his great humor and outgoing personality, are the perfect match for our Metal Rescue® and Dry Coat™ products and to serve as a Workshop Hero Nation Ace . Bryan is the ultimate workshop hero – he knows how to get the work done and have some fun along the way,” David Yancho, Vice President, Workshop Hero, said.
