You know, alot of people question the quality of the builds on shows like overhaulin, but you have to think, if you have a money is no object plan to get something done in 7 days, and you have someone working on each section of the car nonstop at the same time, and they are just simply bolting on new repo parts for the most part, I have no reason to think it could not be done.
Now a "fast restoration" is a completely differant story to me. That to me simply means sosmetic fixes to get the car presentable. But a show liek overhaulin where the it seems no one is actually paying for the parts, it seems that the only labor involved in most of the car is taking things off and replacing them with new parts ready to install. When you take out the hours of polishing, restoring gauges and wiring and etc, its alot faster. Even the body work... I mean if you have one or two guys on a fender and the same for each other panel from start to stop, it just seems possible to me that these cars are going to leave a better quality than some may think.
