Welcome to DoogieLabs

I originally started this website and company in early 2009 to consolidate and stop posting my project threads on various forums, which has caused everything to be disorganized or lost. It is now all hosted from my private web server. This site is intended to be an educational and personal reference page for my business, projects and interests. Exploration will uncover hidden treasures as there’s a lot buried in the archives that’s not immediately apparent. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave one, no account is required. If any images are broken, please me know. Welcome to DoogieLabs!

DoogieLabs was created by me, Michael Rick, and has had several employees at times throughout the years, although currently I am the only one. It represents a research and development facility, as well as automotive performance, customization, and technology integration (such as computers and electronics).  What started out as a hobby has allowed me to hone the skills of professionally taking almost any concept to creation. My artistic expression is the culmination of technology and automotive engineering. With the right balance of modern and time proven methods, I can achieve outcomes that jump curves.

Just a few snapshots from posts over the years..
