Epic Fabrication! | BANKS BUILT Ep 5

If you’re into fabrication and hot rods, prepare for a whole lotta epic fabrication and eye candy! The guys take an exclusive tour of an amazing facility. Previously, Gale and the team revealed that the ’66 Chevy will be fitted with a supercharged Duramax L5P diesel engine. The next step is to design a chassis that will support the heavier and much wider engine. But this could be a challenge since the goal is to lay the truck on the ground. This is why we turned to Roadster Shop in Mundelein, IL. The team of skilled fabricators and engineers has mastered the art of chassis design and production.

The Roadster Shop became known for its epic fabrication when the shop was purchased in 2004 and the team build show cars to display their capabilities. Right out of the gate, the team was cleaning up at award ceremonies for their custom cars. However, their engineering and production line made them stand out from other shops.
