Hi all! The trip was a success and a lot of fun!
Rick (owner), Camaron (owner%u2019s son) and I (Todd Wiley) drove up to Johnson City, TN. to the Borla facility, where the Motorhead Garage studio is and checked into the hotel around mid-night Tuesday 4/23/2013.
Wednesday morning I got up early(to excited to sleep) and went down stairs for breakfast...about a minute later Sam Memmolo (co-host) walked in to eat breakfast and he realized that I recognized him and introduced himself to me. I told him that %u201CI was shooting a segment with him and Dave later on today%u201D. That's when Dave Bowman (co-host) walked in to eat breakfast and we all sat down at a table and started talking. These two guys were great and both were very gracious and friendly. A few minutes later Rick and camaron came down stairs and we left for the study which was about 10 minutes away.
Once we got to the study, we were greeted by Scotty who is a part of the Masters TV crew and found a car for us to use and install our products on for our TV show segment. He opened up the Borla warehouse to us so we could bring in our truck with all of the products we brought to install. The car was already there and we started pre-installing some of the products and prepping the car for the show and installation of the rest of the parts. Since we only had two hours to shoot and install a full engine bay, hood panel, door sills, door panel kick plates, etc%u2026we thought we better make use of our time, while waiting for our turn to shoot the show.
By the way, that Borla facility is huge! 320,000 sq. ft. on 100 acres.
The entire Masters TV crew was great and let us shoot all of the photos and video we wanted, during this process. We ended up shooting for about four hours total and completed the project. It turned our beautiful! I have posted a few teaser photos for now, but have been instructed to wait until the show airs before I can release all of the photos and behind the scenes video we took. Stay tuned for more!
Our show is scheduled to air on Thursday, May 16th at 5:00 pm EST, Sunday, May 19th at 1:00 pm EST and a network choice that week.
