The BBC has a great series of photos on its website, depicting the results from Uganda’s first body shop to turn out creations inspired by the MTV show “Pimp My Ride.” The work is exquisite. Apparently, customers are paying upwards of $3,200 to have this work done.
All the work is done freehand, if you can believe it, without the use of expensive and unnecessary “molds” or “techniques.”
Sometimes stuff fits. Other times you make it fit. Anything to keep customers satisfied.
Panel fit is of the utmost importance.
The inspiration for this Toyota Celica was one of the cars in the original Death Race 2000. Not sure if this is partially assembled, or taken upon delivery.
Five lug nuts offer the kind of redundancy for which Ugandan drivers aren’t willing to pay extra. Four are just fine, thank you.
The BBC reports that the body shop has finished four cars so far, for businessmen, local celebrities and “pastors.”
