Bad Chad Customs is an American television series that first aired on Discovery Channel in 2019. The show revolves around the life and artwork of custom car builder Chad Hiltz, who transforms cars into one-of-a-kind automotive pieces of art. Chad Hiltz is a talented craftsman, designer, fabricator, and artist who is known for his ability to create unique cars from scratch that stun the world of automotive enthusiasts. He runs a custom car shop, named Bad Chad Customs, located in Canning, Nova Scotia, where he and his team work their magic.

Throughout the series, viewers get a close-up look at the process behind the creation of the unique automobiles that have made Chad Hiltz so famous. From the early stages of concept design to the finished product, the show follows the day-to-day workings of the shop through the lenses of the camera.

The show balances the action and humor of the fabrication process with the reality of running a small business. The struggle of trying to build an original automobile while handling the extreme demands that come with the competitive world of custom cars is presented honestly. Chad’s personality is central to the show, which captures his eccentric, sometimes hyper-active and chaotic on and off-screen persona that keeps viewers entertained.

Bad Chad Customs is not your typical car show. Rather than focusing on building a replica, racing around, or repairing classic cars, the show focuses on creating cars from scratch that reflect their owners' personalities. Chad believes in creating automotive art that is unique and beautiful, and also functional. He sees his work on a deeper level than just a beautiful car but as something that connects with an owner in a way that simple needs and transportation cannot.

The show is filled with excitement, drama, and humor, as Chad and his team take on the challenge of creating one-of-a-kind automobiles on a tight deadline. With each new episode comes a new project that inspires awe and amazement from viewers worldwide. From the MAD MAX-inspired truck created on a tight deadline to a visually stunning car that had everyone gasping, each episode is full of surprises.

Regardless of your level of interest in cars, Bad Chad Customs offers non-car enthusiasts an opportunity to be entertained by watching the art of creation unfold before their eyes. This show is about much more than horsepower or torque, but more about the creativity and originality of a single artistic mind than a group effort to make a fast car.

In summary, Bad Chad Customs is a show that puts forward the magic of transforming a simple car into artwork. Its star, Chad Hiltz, is the driving force behind this show, using his out-of-the-box thinking, mad skills, and vision to create automotive art that will last a lifetime. The show is filmed in a way that captures the essence of the fabrication process, leaving viewers spellbound and craving more. If you love cars, art, or simply enjoy watching an individual's wild imagination at work, this show is for you.
