Vegas Rat Rods Full Episode Guide

  • Driven by his love of Steve's Diesel Rat Rot (The D-Rod), a heavy equipment operator commissions a version for himself. Instead Steve delivers a custom 'Go Anywhere' rat rod that can climb mountains as easily as it whips down the highway at 100mph.

  • Two bodyguards from Nashville prove to be tough customers when they ask Steve to redesign their Chevy truck into a bat out of hell for their impending anniversary. While the Welderup crews lack of communication threatens to tear their union apart.

  • Steve faces an uphill battle meeting his client's demands for a 1930's era truck before eventually acquiring an old friend's family heirloom Diamond T. But then the real work begins to transform a gutless work truck into a mountain taming monster.

  • After Steve pens an ode to his working class roots in the steel industry called ``Blue Collar Man,'' he sets out to transform a rare but crumbling 1970s era Charger body into the ultimate blue-collar vehicle to star in the song's music video.

  • When a couple of local hot rod builders challenge Steve to compete in a race that features only 'period correct' post war restorations he can't say no. But his plan to use spare parts from his own junk collection to restore a '31 Ford in just a week and a half has the team on edge. To defend Welderup's reputation, Steve calls in a visit from Hot Rod legend Gene Winfield who inspires the gang to embrace the spirit that drove the original hot rod builders almost 70 years ago. But a last minute glitch threatens to leave their finished masterpiece idling in the dust.

  • When Joe, Welderup's general manager, discovers that his two-year-old son has cancer Steve enlists the crew to build a custom vehicle that he hopes will show anyone who is battling the disease that there is life after the struggle.

  • Take one beat up sandrail, add a 1920's body, mix it up with Steve's creativity, and you get a road warrior sprung from the desert.Then, for the first time in the shop, the crew installs an alcohol-fueled engine.

  • Steve transforms a 1955 Chevy truck into an apocalyptic vision of fire. Built for a demolitions expert, Steve wanted this pickup to reflect his client's profession. So it looks like it just emerged from hell, burned out and definitely badass.

  • The Welderup boys build a tribute to Vegas with a Speedster for a flashy client keen on cruising the Strip. Steve hunts down rare casino memorabilia to incorporate into the build including slot machine parts and poker chips.
