    Rust Valley restorations

    Might be old news, but anyone watching Rust Valley Restorations?

    I know it's one of the many over dramatised clone 'custom builders' shows but it is quite interesting seeing some Canadian stuff and also how dangerous Avery is in the shop! God knows how he's made it this far and kept all his limbs and eyes.

    Watched a couple of. Made my eyes bleed.

    Proper bodgy cowboys.

    As with lots of the yank shows, there's no thought about safety or anything like that.

    Nearly every shop seams to tack weld stuff with no mask on.

    And when you look closely at a lot of shops work,its truly awful,though i like a lot of the end products.amazing what filler and paint does

    Hmmm - like a 'real' engineers 'do it all' tool is a Ball Pein Hammer - a 'real' Body Shops guy's 'do it all' product is Bondo.......

    What's that saying? "Filler and paint makes me the welder I ain't"

    I think that there must be a team of guys you don't see, doing a lot of the work. The cars seem to go from wreck to stunning overnight and I just don't see Mike & Avery as fine detail, perfectionists.

    It's also funny when they 'finish' a car and proceed to drive the gleaming beauty through a muddy puddle strewn yard to it's new owner!

    Still, there are a lot of nice cars to watch!
