Career Beginning & Breakthrough

Ish Jimenez was one of the young people learning the car craft. This young man came from nowhere and showed the world the wildest way of customizing car interiors. He started the craft back in 1983 and 84 when he was 11 or 12. He worked for his uncle’s upholstery and learned the trade there.
How does his net worth reach?
By then in South Central of Los Angeles, growing up as a Mexican boy had only one option; joining the gang. Ish also joined the gang when he was 12 and got into some troubles which followed by putting him on probation. In that period, his mother dropped him off his uncle’s upholstery on Vermont and Florence Avenue of South Central Los Angeles.
