Lol
I have to give you a little background on me
I worked for a highend shop for a few years 20 something Years ago
British cars were what they worked on.

I watched the first half dozen shows I want to say
And they were so bad I had to shut it off
So many things I saw were wrong/bad I lost count.
And the work they put out back then was barely passible if that.
A friend of mine had to half redo the back half of a car that had just left thier shop
They used Bondo like cake icing and more.

Fast forward to today
They learned alot and they aren't half bad now
It's not the clown show from the beginning
I think they have a different crew working for them
And the work looks better and they seem more professional
Then when they started out.

They are still frustrating to watch for me because they don't show
Any of the hard stuff at all, its just fluff for the TV
I watched a few episodes of the building of the hellcat superbird
I was interested because I have been thinking of doing it myself
You can buy a used hellcat motor today at almost
The same price as a rebuilt big block
So I watch thinking how do they fit the engine in?
How bad do they hack/cut on the car to make it fit?
how do they get the shifter in the correct position?
about The only thing I learned
is install the speedo cable before the engine goes in because it's too tight to snake it in
The engine is shown on the ground and the next shot
It's already installed like magic fairies came in the middle of the night
And did all the hard work! lol
not much help there
I guess I expect way too much but I look at it a little different then most
With my background.

I look at it a lot different then most do.
That's why I stated my background in the business
I've seen enough cool cars over the years
I get bored very quickly with that.

I'm on a quest for knowledge and I'm thirsty
And when I'm still thirsty after watching
I start looking at other things Quickly.
I've learned more on this site then things from that show Lol
But to be fair I have been Mopar
for decades before they ever showed up.
we parted cars to get sheetmetal parts not order from a catolog like today
But honestly when I watch I have to keep telling myself
It's only entertainment and nothing more and don't expect much more then
What they present. I will say they have come a long way from where they started.
