Have learned a lot from this guy. Very watchable and useful stuff about doing bodywork repairs to old tat. New York based, run by a guy called Pisser, but he taught me all I know* about welding and painting vee hickles. Pisser is a bit of a legend when it comes to repairing car bodywork.

Yes.

 

His series of videos showing the rebuild of a rolled Ford Maverick on the cheap was pretty interesting watching.

 

Though I fear for the state of his lungs, judging by the large quantities of cigarettes he consumes together with sanding without a dust mask.

Thanks to this thread I spent too much time watching Mighty Car Mods from Australia on YaTube! yesterday.

They may be a bit JDM for some tastes, but do appreciate tiny obscure cars and have a sense of humour I get along with.


I'll not let in an Insignia,

Nor a queuing Corsa,

When the gap is tight,

Because all Vauxhalls are Shite!

Aye his constant "Yip" is quite annoying. Also although I've been known for the odd quick and dirty repair myself there's a of BIAS (bodge it and scrarper) involved in the repair.s On the a wheel arch repair I watched he just cut a bit of grot out thhe the inner arch (didn't repair it) then tacked a repair panel on over the top of a big rust hole he just knocked through with a hammer. So no inner arch, welded on over rust hole. YIP.


I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!

:-)
I assumed that constant talking is useful* in a 'how to' video.. Also he is in New York....
My bad.
Taken in the spirit in which it is done it seems good to me.. Maybe an acquired taste though.
