I wouldn’t be surprised.  They bodged everything.  Cheap parts and habit of covering bare or rusty steel with stone chip, which is porous and allows rapid rusting.  All they ever did on that show was paper over the cracks and make a proper restoration that little bit harder.

Stonechip is the devi's work in my opinion and they covered everything they could in that stuff. Bare metal? Stonechip. Recent weld? Stonechip. Surface rust? Stonechip.

It's a shame because Edd seems like a good bloke and decent mechanic (he's built some mad kit cars after all) but Brewer is an utter... and it always feels like they cut corners & gloss over stuff for TV.

Who knows, maybe the TV bods will catch on and give someone like that a series as people vote with their feet.
