Default Chop Shop / Bangla Bangers

Anyone else seen any of these, quest seems to be showing a lot of them recently

Might just be me but does anyone else think all of that Leepu's "designs" are complete and utter crap?

Couldn't believe some of the junk they were churning out!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - so they say.

Not my cup of tea. For me they are just a little too much off main stream.

Still, if you want to make a statement, they certainly do that.

I wouldn't be seen in one.

They are utter pants and would never last more than a couple of years before falling apart

For a one off I think they are pretty good, however the price he charges for them I would expect new components to be used i.e engine, gear box and brakes. I can understand using a used body to create the design but to get the other bits you'd be better off just buying a used Ferrari or porsche lol

I have seen both series in the past and there are certain things that are downright dangerous. Take those big wheel spacers for example, over 6" wide some of them. Imagine the strain on the wheel bearings. To say Bernie has supposed to have been in the trade for so long you would think he would know better.

A lot of the body structure mods are very questionable too as I say 2 years and they will be knackered

When you look at some of the custom programs from America you can see the difference in engineering finesse

The one thing im surprised by in the show is the amount of car parts shops there, I bet you could get OEM parts for a model T ford

chop shop is based in the uk and is just as bad. On tonights episode they actually cut the suspension spring with an angle grinder to make the car sit lower, it collapsed!!

Some of the body mods they do must have serious structural issues !
