as somewhat of a fabricator/machinist, one can make anything fit if enough "hackery" is involved.
however, in my world, i strive to make things look simple and "clean" [not the common definition of the opposite of dirty].
it is quite often not as easy to do as one would think.
just me, i guess. not condoning anything these shows do, but i could add a few pointers on some of the fabrication "ideas" they come up with.
i can't paint unless it is with a spray bomb. Shorty is my hero when it comes to paint !
plus, he seems like a really down to earth guy that isn't "full of himself".
