JD I think Sandra Bullock would be a natural to play your part.

I think they could cut their build time by 25% if they had a plasma cutter

I like that this episode (16) is a little heavier on showing some of the techniques they use.

I was drinking a Diet Pepsi and did a spew when I saw Edd China pushing the broom! That bust me up! It was good to see him again. He was the best part, by far, of Wheelers Dealers.

Love this show. Picked up tons of useful fabrication tricks. Believe it or not my wife watches this show with me of her own free will.

Its good to see more stuff like this as opposed to the usual "lets build a car in 8 hours," stuff.

As a business - which these shows are - it's in their best interest to drag things out just as long as possible. Having better tools would cost them far more than just the tools alone.
