Yup all of the above, I have watched a little of a couple of his videos on the COE build, the one that got me was when he inventoried the fiberglass filler and bonded for the project I think it was 3 gallons fiberglass ahd either 4 or 6 bondo. 🤣🤣

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

I don't really care for a lot of his builds mainly due to the fact that like the COE he's onto now, they aren't really driveable except for him it would seem.
Credit where credit is due though.....
He living his dream and that's more then most people can say.
Peace out......

I'm with Torchie. I'm not a fan of most of his builds either. The cars are more art than something you would put much mileage on. As we all know, art is a very personal taste. His Bugattis's are cool. I find it amazing that he can see the beginnings of one in the car bodies he starts with. His personality is such he can't spend hours on a single panel on the English wheel or whatever. He gets his results with a minimum of specialized equipment. He keeps talking about getting things done quickly. I'm glad he is willing to display his techniques.
I could be wrong but I believe the radical customizers of the past didn't do much fine panel shaping and fitting. Not like the custom coach builder's did. Torchie would know better than me but I think they bent the metal to get it close and leaded or Bondo'd to sculpt the desired shape.
Anyhoo, I watch most every night even though his repetitiveness gets to me. I do learn from him. But I'm sure I'm a better chassis builder than Bad Chad.

Agreed. Sometimes I am scratching my head trying to figure out what in the **** he is doing, then it all makes sense after he does it. He has a way to keep me coming back.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

There was a kids cartoon way back when my kids were young. Hercules and there was character on there that repeated everything thing a few times just like Chad, and they both really get under my skin.
