About The Guy:
Lee Hemmeter I have lived around Medina Ohio all of my life. I bought my '92 Ranger when I was 16 and immediately started modifying it in my Auto Body class at the Medina County Career Center. I did my first full paint job on it my senior year. I got into the auto body world after high school, and then went to Wyotech in Pennsylvania for a year to learn the craft more in-depth. Since I've graduated I've been doing custom upholstery at home and collision work full time. I helped a friend build his '94 Ranger in 2006, and bought it in 2010 as a long term project. I was asked to join the club towards the end of 2015. The club has rekindled my passion in the scene, helped me get more involved, and go to more shows.
