I will be taking some time away from making parts and fulfilling orders as my new home and shop burned to the ground Monday April 15th. We are safe and thankfully didn't lose everything, and have insurance. That being said, I am emotionally and physically drained, and need time to recharge and figure out the next steps from here. I will be emailing every single person with an outstanding order, if the part is made and ready to ship i will package and send it your way. if i have only partially made your order, i will ship whats made and refund you plus a discount for your time and understanding. If your order isn’t made, i will fully refund you and ask that you understand I did not intend to let you down.
Please understand I tried my best to get caught up and if i have broken my word that it is not something I make a habit of. Sorry to everyone for this
Welcome to DRAKES, a small business with big ideas. A veteran owned and operated parts manufacturing and development shop that started from a drive to create products I wanted for myself, and grew into me providing those same skills and products to other people around the world. I am constantly bringing new and innovative designs and products to life in a variety of car communities.
For now its just me, one guy in one small shop with limited resources and equipment, going up against the big name parts suppliers to provide something that they lack the vision or drive to produce.
I started creating products and designs nearly a decade ago in the VW and Audi market, with great success. After spending 4 years in Japan, I am bringing my ideas to the JDM market as well. Please check out my current products in the SHOP, along with the "COMING SOON" section to see what is in the works.
I am always willing to work with you, the customer, to develop or tweak an existing product to meet your needs. If I don’t have it, but you can dream it, than we can create it.
I am on Instagram as @Draklore which will give you regular updates on future products
