Dan will treat you like the garbage he believes everyone is, He and his shop have no clue and what the true meaning of custom metal work and design is and they will never be as good as they think they are or as good as the show sometimes depicts them to be as a whole...

I was vacationing in the area of FW so I stopped in to see what the place was like. I have been a fan for a while and am a big car buff. My wife and I went in the front door and we were immediately confronted by Audrey, the office manager. I mentioned I am a fan and...

Love his attitude and work not counting prices. Wish I could do this! I'd be rich in a few years.

I love this guy. Finally a show about what realistically happens during a restoration. Anyone who’s done several restorations will agree. Always problems!

Fantomworks - Take too long.

Seems like other shows featuring garages and car restoration will have it all done within a month instead of almost 3 years. Is that because of a mass amount of projects?

Seems like they almost always screw up something and act surprised about it. I am sure that the customers pay for the rework. I wouldn't bring one of my cars in there under any circumstances. He overcharged a guy $1000 for a 1972 Buick N25 through the bumper exhaust....
