    Pretty cool to watch them work. Makes me want to have a welder and get to cutting into that rusty cab that I was going to use even more. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Haven't seen that one yet. I hope that it isn't written using the same theme as Monster Garbage and West Coast Chumpers. I like watching cool custom fabrication, but those shows throw in WAY too much "human drama" (aka, look at what a$$holes we can be) that just makes me change the channel. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I think Jesse James is a sell out by doing that lame commercial for Auto Zone, I dont like Monster Garage either after they steered away from doing actual fabbing and sticking to the $$$ limit, now with all this "freebie" crap.. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    He actually put up 405lbs after his reps were done. When he said, "Not too bad for an old guy." That was 405, and no, that's not too bad for an old guy.

    Sellout? Who cares. I'd be willing to be they paid him quite nicely for his 10 second commercial...and that's all that really matters /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Nah, This is going to be like American Chopper.

    Ah yes, American Chumper was the other show that I was thinking about. They spend FAR too much of the show playing up the tension between dad and son. I would much rather see more of teh fabrication and less of the verbal sparring. I can get that here! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I wouldn't mind the tension and arguing between those two goons if they eventually punched each other around once in a while, /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Youre right about the fabrication tho' , they need to get back into doing actual work instead of directing attantion to each other. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
