  • Monster Garage

    Anyone catch tonight's episode? For the last year I had been telling myself that I should have sent in an audition for Monster Garage as someone with fiberglass experience.

    Tonight they are making a race car out of a boat and they have some real easy fiberglass work to do. It could have been my time to shine... Not to mention get some of those bad assed Mac Tools!

    Damnit!

    Ed,

    I wish I had cable! That sounds fun! I think between the two of us we could definitely do either Monster Garage or Junk Yard Wars. I'll have to see if the episode is on the Discovery Channel website yet.

      Yup, caught it too. Did you see Jesse James running that boat before the cut it apart? That thing would flat out fly. I feel asleep before the car was done, they were just finishing the wheel cutouts when I nodded off. I was trying to figure out how to get that 500 and some horsepower chevy in my Mako!

        Yea I saw it too. They flipped a pickle fork race boat upside down and made a hot rod out of it. I wish the little boy could have lived long enough to go for a ride in it with Jessie.

                That wasn't a guy or a woman. I'm not to sure what IT was[}] Good show just the same. that boat did fly at 90 MPH with a 200 yard rooster tail. Car did great burnouts. Too bad they burnt up the tranny in the race at the end. Nice touch with the dedication for the kid.

                  I think the little fella was involved in the "Last Wish" program for terminally ill children. He was a huge fan of the show they say, and I guess he chose to visit the set of Monster Garage, but unfortunately didn't make it... Very sad indeed. Hes in a better place now, free to build whatever kind of monster machine he desires.

                    yeah I couldn't get a good read on the "It" person. The name was probably Pat or Chris or something like that too. Deffinitely a freak.

                    They re-gelcoated the boat at the end, but I wish I know what they used in the gelcoat to make it spray out nice. Probably Duratec Hi-Gloss additive. I just can't see them spraying and working a whole boat over with regular gelcoat, that would take days of wet sanding. And it would still be wavy. They had to have a boosting additive.

                      Anyone catch the American Chopper show?? The POW/MIA bike came out pretty slick. I'm not as much of a fan of Paul Sr.'s old school designs, but he put some good thought and imagination into that bike. As usualy though, the kid that does the paint jobs outdid himself again. Hes unreal with his artwork.

                        Ya I watched that after as well. I thought they did a nice job on that POW-MIA bike. But the fact remains, them bikes just cost tooooo much. Not a real big fan of theme bikes just the same. Some good old custom HD works for me. As far as the paint goes. That artist is really at the top of the list for talents and at such a young age. Hope he doesn't breathe too many fumes. Care to guess at what it's worth? I have a good friend who does signs and lettering. I know he's not cheap.

                          probably would have had better if they had attached some shovels to the transom.....

                            I want my buddy Jodi Wilkinson to send in an audition tape for Monster Garage. Besides being the local Mako guru and excellent boat restoration expert, he also did all of the mold work (and a lot of other stuff) for the ROWLEY CORVETTE DAYTONA GTC.......(check it out at wwww.rowleycorvette.com) which was on the cover of KIT CAR magazine in 1989. This is very similar (but better) to the Ferrari/Corvette kit car used in the first season of Miami Vice.
