Default 30 Epic Do-It-Yourself Automotive Fabrication Failures

30 Epic Do-It-Yourself Automotive Fabrication Failures
Work Email, thought I would post it up

Website Link to website

I think some pics may be missing, so check out the website



We've seen some pretty crappy DIY craftsmanship before, but these examples take the cake. What's amazing is these DIY'ers know how to post on the internet, but not how to research. EPIC FAIL.
















Nice plenum, it has more volume than your head, guy.

Just make sure the A/C is on for that cold air effect.


I give it maybe 2 seconds before the fireworks show.


A really un-sophisticated potato gun?

Knarly!!


No explanation needed.


We're sure that the majority of these screwballs know what they're doing by now, since it's highly likely that they've completely ruined the vehicles that they've installed these welding nightmares to. Hey Murilee! You listening? Try and get all these guys set up on a team for the 24 Hours of LeMons! Can you see the golden safety cage and welded frame too?. I've got to go wash my eyes out with 15 gallon drum of Methylene Chloride Industrial Paint Stripper now, so feel free to post more disastrous results that you've come across in the comments below.

The footwear sums it up.
Why bother making a crappy manifold when you can buy a factory Toyota one to suit 3TG Turbo for like $150?
