By Ashley Reyes

Like most enthusiasts, many of FantomWorks’ customers have elaborate dreams of what they are looking for, but a budget that does not support the job. After years of experience, FantomWorks owner Dan Short has learned how to deliver a vehicle that customers will love and be able to enjoy, while staying within budget.

Tune in to the new SEMA Virtual Education video in which Short shares his company’s build philosophy for auto restoration and takes viewers behind the scenes into his shop. During the candid interview, you’ll learn the one word Short promotes as his guiding star, hear what he has planned for the 2021 SEMA Show and discover what he looks for when hiring new employees. As a special bonus, you’ll see photos and hear about the wedding he officiated at FantomWorks’ facilities!

The video is the fourth episode of the ARMO Builder Series in which host Sabra Johnson of City Classic Cars brings viewers stories from some of the industry’s most passionate and creative builders.

Stay tuned to SEMA eNews and ARMO social media for registration on the fifth installment of the ARMO Builder Series. Taking place as a live webinar, the session will feature Jim and Mike Ring, co-founders of Ringbrothers. The ARMO Builder Series videos support and will culminate with the ARMO Builders Panel at the 2021 SEMA Show.
