    They do pull off some amazing rescues on that show - clashes with something the Mrs likes to watch so generally on see glimpses and maybe the end

    Loved the show and loved the fact that they restored it back to it's original state. The look on the elderly owners face was priceless when he saw it. :)

    I only ever enjoy the last 5 minutes when they reveal the cars to the owners.
    I still can't see how they can turn around these cars in 3 weeks.
    Good entertainment none the less.

    It was beautiful to see them keep the originality of his pride and joy. I would have to say the expiry date of some of the contents of the cupboards was amusing!

    I must be getting a bit soft in my advancing years :confused: Irene and I get a bit misty when they hand the car back to the owner, especially Grandad and the Bay. :)

    I said to Mrs Grantus, "I waited six years for someone to do an SOS, or "pimp my ride" to my Single Cab, but no one turned up.......so I had to make a start myself" :confused:

    Good point.......

    I did notice even though there was a large crew working on it, the limited time hardly allowed proper curing / drying time between stints....o_O

    having seen some of the other shows I think they at least attempt a decent repair. They did on a landy.
    Would have been a challenge on a couple of others.
    Havent seen the kombi but 3 weeks would be an ask unless it wasn't too bad as a starter.
    Ovens overcome the curing issues [prob essential in the land of poms anyway :) ]

    No way you would want a bucket of bog and bling from the pimps tho.
