Diesel Brothers follows Heavy D, Diesel Dave and the team at Dieselsellerz as they build big, bad trucks, pull elaborate pranks and push the limits with new stunts. Diesel Brothers launched during Discovery’s “Motor Mondays” in January and in its first season, the show is pulling more than 2 million viewers per episode and is currently the network’s highest-rated new series in adult 25-54 in more than two years.
Fast N’ Loud is the most watched automotive related TV show in America. Fast N’ Loud follows the exploits of motor mastermind Richard Rawlings and mechanical prodigy, Aaron Kaufmann, who search the far flung corners of Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. Fast N’ Loud has over 3 million followers on Facebook.
We installed an ACE 40″ x40″ Soda Blast Cabinet with 400 cfm Dust Collector in both the Gas Monkey Garage (Dallas, TX) and in Dieselsellerz (Woods Cross, UT). These soda blasting cabinets were chosen to provide a way to clean various engine, transmission, suspension, drive train, and other component parts with the unique properties of the soda blasting process. Soda blasting does not harm chrome, glass, seals or bearings, and does not change any surface or dimensional characteristics so critical in truck and automotive applications. Also, soda blasting eliminates problems associated with media retention in hard to clean areas like threads and oil passages since soda residue simply dissolves in water. Just ask anyone who has ruined an expensive engine due to a small piece of hidden blast media how important that is!
We also installed an ACE Model 4 Split Top (48″ x 24″) Sandblast Cabinet with 100 cfm Dust Collector in the Gas Monkey Garage for use with other more aggressive medias, like aluminum oxide and glass bead. All of our Abrasive Blasting and Soda Blasting Cabinets feature all-welded construction using 11 and 14 gauge steel with cross braced legs for a work deck capacity of 2,000 lbs.! Our equipment is known for its rugged construction, ease of use, simple maintenance, backed by the best customer service in the business.
Safety-Kleen provides environmental services to both garages and was instrumental in spear heading these projects. Armex provided the soda blast media for use in both garages. We would like to extend our sincere thanks for all of their help. Thank you!
