  • 1. This  is  the  incredible  story  behind   how  innova3ve  wheel  styling  and   protec3on  system  RimPro-­‐Tec   came  to  be  and  is  a  very   interes3ng  one.     Tornados  and    Dreams   My  Story    
  • 2. Tornados   I  woke  up  one  morning  petri/ied,  after  having  a  dream   about  two  tornados  hitting  my  house,  I  woke  my   husband  up  telling  him  about  my  dream  he  told  me  to   go  back  to  sleep  and  that  I  had  been  too  busy  at  work   and  not  to  worry  about  it,  this  I  did  until  the  5th  of  July,   just  a  few  short  weeks  later.       Well  the  5th  of  July  was  the  day  everything  changed  my   family  and  I,  what  I  thought  was  the  worst  day  of  my   life  turned  out  to  be  the  best  day  of  my  life,  all  thanks   to  the  dream.  
  • 3. My  daughters  and  I  feared  for  our  lives  when  two  tornados  slammed   into  our  house  in  Oakura  a  small  seaside  township  in  Taranaki  on  the   west  coast  of  New  Zealand.   We  were  absolutely  petrified,  we  honestly  thought  we  were  all  going   to  die.  We  ran  to  the  back  of  the  house,  this  is  the  part  of  the  house   that  was  undamaged  in  my  dream  and  I  lay  my  body  over  my  girls  to   try  and  protect  them,  we  all  prayed  that  we  would  be  safe,  I  prayed   more  3mes  than  you  could  imagine  in  the  few  minuets  we  were  on   the  floor.   I  can  remember  the  deafening  noise  and  the  feeling  was  that  of  pure   fear,  something  to  this  day  I  can’t  explain.   I  have  heard  people  say  that  being  in  a  Tornados  is  like  standing  at  the   back  of  a  jet  engine  on  a  plane  or  a  train  at  the  side  of  you  moving  at   270  miles  an  hour,  but  all  I  can  say  is  my  daughters  and  I  were   petrified,  they  screamed  like  nothing  I  have  ever  heard  before  they   held  and  clung  on  to  me  and  me  to  them  for  dear  life  fearing  that  if  I   let  go  of  them  I  would  never  see  them  again.      
  • 4.     The  terrifying  noise  passed  and  we  laid  there  for  what   seemed  like  an  eternity.  I  can  remember  hearing  voices   shouting  and  screaming  outside  so  we  got  up  off  the  /loor  and   nothing  could  have  prepared  us  for  what  we  were  about  to   see.      
  • 5.   It  was  absolute  carnage  the  children’s  beds  were  a  real  shock   to  see  with  large  two  feet  long  shards  of  plated  glass,  spearing   the  mattresses  and  the  children’s  pillows.  What  was  even   more  terrifying  is  that  if  the  tornado  happened  just  an  hour   after  the  children  would  have  been  in  the  very  same  beds.        
  • 6.   Chris,  my  husband  was  working  4  hours  away  when  the  tornados  hit  the   house,  aQer  seeing  the  news  report  on  TV  saying  “a  small  seaside   township  in  Taranaki  has  been  hit  by  a  swarm  of  tornados”,  he   immediately  thought  about  the  dream  I  had  told  him  about  a  few  weeks   before.   Chris  tried  in  vein  to  get  hold  of  us  but  all  the  telephone  lines  were   downed  by  the  tornados,  so  he  called  a  family  friend  that  lived  about  10   miles  away  to  get  to  us  as  soon  as  he  could.   Chris  was  on  the  cell  phone  to  our  friend  as  he  pulled  into  Oakura  and   the  police  said  he  could  not  go  down  to  where  we  lived  as  it  was  too   dangerous,  he  passed  the  phone  to  the  police  and  Chris  begged  to  let   him  down  to  see  if  we  were  hurt  or  even  worse,  He  did  get  through  the   road  block  and  was  talking  to  Chris  as  he  approached  our  house  and  he   did  not  know  how  to  tell  him  but  the  house  was  seriously  damaged  and   he  could  not  see  the  girls  and  me,  Chris  was  absolutely  distraught,  he   thought  he  had  lost  us  all,  but  our  friend  spoWed  me  in  a  neighbors   house  just  up  the  street,  he  was  so  pleased  to  be  able  to  tell  Chris  that   we  were  safe  and  physically  unhurt    
  • 7.   We  lost  all  of  our  material  possessions  that  night  the  house  was  ruined   the  furniture  was  destroyed  and  it  just  showed  us  that  you  never   expect  to  loose  everything  in  a  click  of  a  finger  but  you  can.   But  we  didn’t  care  about  any  of  that  I  s3ll  had  my  family  and  that  is  all   that  maWered.       Then  came  the  hammer  blow  I  realized  that  we  were  actually   homeless.     As  the  day  dawned  so  did  the  full  extent  of  the  devasta3on  and  the   brute  force  of  the  tornados  become  painfully  clear,  as  many  as  sixty   homes  were  badly  damaged  when  the  tornados  hit,  as  the  clean  up   got  underway  it  was  thought  at  least  six  houses  were  beyond  repair.       The  tornados  came  from  the  sea  and  destroyed  everything  in  their   path  as  they  spiraled  inland.   The  girls  s3ll  get  very  worried  when  the  wind  gusts  but  I  am  sure  it  will   get  beWer  as  3me  goes  by.  
  • 8. From  one  Dream  to  another     Our  Dream  is  called     Wheel  Protec3on  with  change  out  colours      
  • 9.   We  moved  to  Auckland  soon  after  the   Tornados  we  could  not  settle  and  felt  that   we  wanted  to  be  away  from  where  the   tornados  struck  in  fear  it  would  happen   again  and  started  working  around  the  clock   17  hours  a  day  7  days  a  week,  we  had  too.   We  had  a  /looring  business  that  was  going   really  well  and  we  worked  that  during  the   day  and  we  would  come  home  and  work  on   RimPro-­‐Tec,  so  we  could  move  the  invention   to  the  next  level.  
  • 10.         Two  Dreams  one  that  saved  our  life  and  one   that  changed  our  life.     We  always  knew  that  we  were  so  blessed  having  the   two  dreams,  one  that  saved  our  lives  and  one  that  was   changing  our  lives  and  we  also  knew  that  this  time  we   could  actually  be  in  a  position  to  change  other  peoples   lives  and  to  help  people  that  are  less  fortunate  than   ourselves,  to  this  end  we  set  up  our  foundation  to  help   families  in  need  and  kids  on  the  street.      
  • 11.         Some  days  were  really  rough  having  never  brought  a  product  to  the   market  before  and  mo3va3on  was  a  big  thing  keeping  going  was  the   only  op3on.       I  can  remember  one  day  pulling  the  car  up  to  the  side  of  the  road   crying,  thinking  I  really  can't  take  or  push  my  self  anymore  I  just  can  not   go  any  further,  I  sat  in  the  car  for  a  while  and  decided  to  put  the  radio   on  I  really  don’t  know  why  I  did  it  but  I  was  so  pleased  I  did,  on  this  one   occasion,  at  that  3me  was  a  song  playing  called  “You  are  half  way  there   living  on  a  prayer”  by  Bon-­‐Jovi.  Well  that  song  worked  for  me  and  I  had   to  keep  going,  I  was  now  mo3vated  again  but  this  3me  on  a  whole   different  level.  I  just  knew  that  not  only  did  I  have  to  do  this  for  my   family,  but  I  had  to  do  it  for  other  children  that  need  my  help  to.      
  • 12.   Months  turned  into  years  but  we  never  gave  up  on  that  dream   we  were  going  to  make  a  difference,  several  prototypes,  different   materials  and  lots  and  lots  of  testing.  We  eventually  found  the   perfect  design  and  the  best  material  to  use  and  there  it  was  the   dream  had  become  a  reality  and  is  a  fantastic  world-­‐class   product  and  one  that  I  am  very  proud  of  and  very  excited  about.  
  • 13. The  RimPro-­‐Tec  system  is  made  up  of  a  base  and  inner,  if  a  curb  is   hit  the  inner  will  rotate  within  the  outer  base  to  take  some  stress   away  from  the  tape.  RimPro-­‐Tec  is  a  specially  developed  extrusion   that  is  easily  applied  to  the  wheel  with  the  use  of  a  proven  very  high   bond  tape.    The  system  is  available  in  silver  base  with  a  silver  inner  and  also  in   black  base  with  a  black  inner,  this  way  you  are  able  to  be  discreet   and  in  many  cases  you  can  not  see  the  product  on  the  wheels  BUT  if   you  do  want  some  color  then  we  supply  15  different  colored  inners   that  will  allow  you  to  have  a  pinstripe  around  your  wheels.   Red,  green,  blue,  yellow  the  choice  is  yours  and  they  look  fantastic.      
  • 14. The  product  has  been  designed  to  be  able  to  fit  most  wheel   styles  and  has  a  universal  fitment  of  14”  to  22”  and  if  your   wheels  are  bigger  or  want  a  non  standard  color  we  have  the   ability  to  make  special  order  sizes  and  colors.       RimPro-­‐Tec  is  now  being  sold  in  several  countries  around  the   world,  but  we  are  always  on  the  look  out  for  new   opportuni3es  and  placement  for  our  products.       RimPro-­‐Tec  now  has  97  Patents  and  Trademarks  around  the   World.       RimPro-­‐Tec  has  won  Global  Media  Awards  from  our  piers  at   SEMA  and  many  more  accolades  from  around  the  world  for   innovaDon  and  best  product.
