KATHRYN GILES AND
STEVE FRASER VERY MUCH FIT THE MOLD OF A POWER COUPLE.

A couple is mostly mistaken for a couple who has it all. Trouble with that is that they usually fall apart upon a closer look. At Kats and Fisher however you can look as close as you want and you get exactly what you see. They share the same passion, are 100% focused on their goals, and together, share an unwavering dedication and passion for their cars and friends.
At the ripe age of only 23 and 22, you can tell they are only just getting started. We for our part can’t wait to see what the future brings for them. As a couple working together on any passion, there are bound to be pitfalls. Just like anything really that you share with a loved one Kats and Fisher do have their own fair share of troubles but at the same rate they do believe the benefits far outweigh the negatives on that note.
It just is good because our paydays are separate, so it’s like we have 2 paydays! Ideas are always flowing, I admit I’m the worst for thinking of things we could do… I drop Steve a text & then it kinda just goes from there & it just happens!’’ says Kats. There has been by no means luck in their success, they put It down to hard work and saving, as well as the passion for what they both love.
They epitomize the hard working mind-set that can get you far, but also have a genuine love that makes them so appealing; one look at their social media presence and the willing and helping hand of all their friends proves that. They haven’t been gifted anything, it is all down to hard work and never giving up, and as a couple they really show that no one is in charge of their own destiny but themselves.
Both have full time jobs to help supplement their passion of customizing cars, with Fisher working as an engineer at British Gas and Kats working as an employee in Marketing & Media at Legend Vehicles. Using the money they make from full time employment they have managed to finance their love of customizing, helping one another really embrace their love for cars and customizing.
The heated discussions of who knows better etc….People butting their noses in, it is hard living such a public life… But we only show 10% of our lives, people either assume or make up the rest! No one is perfect & neither is life, it is just what you make of it which makes it better! It unquestionably makes them a lot stronger working together, they compliment and suit each other not just from far but also at a very close look emotionally.
Sharing the burdens as well as the ecstatic highs that come with working together to build a great reputation in the customizing scene. Do they seem to have it all going for them? Young and in love, they are slowly building a reputation together and seem to get everything they want? Kats summarised perfectly how they came to where they are: “Of course you really need to do the work, as in – I worked my arse off and saved! There is no one who does it for you, even if you are getting products to use.
