Overhaulin’

New Series: Overhaulin’
Discovery – Tuesdays from 3 April, 8.30pm

Can a group of custom car builders working with lightning speed on a limited budget transform a guy’s clunker into a hot custom car without him knowing it? Using stealth and cooperation from friends and/or family to separate the car from the owner, Overhaulin’ takes these clunkers to a nearby garage and gives them a complete, ultra high-speed custom makeover. Our team of builders, led by hot rod automobile designer Chip Foose, transforms these faded out heaps into custom cars. After finding out the owner’s dream for his beater, the team kicks it into gear – sanding, stripping, painting, grinding – because they’ve only got a few days and a limited budget to get the job done. It’s a bumper-to-bumper journey to the final transformation into a cool set of wheels. And along the way, the team has to keep the owner guessing as to where his car is while the work is getting done. Will these automobile wizards be able to pull it all off in a few short days and on a tight budget? And how will the owner react to his new ride?
