Everything You Need To Know About Richard’s 5-Day Challenge!

If you’ve watched even just one episode of Fast N’ Loud, you know that Richard loves to surprise the Monkeys. It’s become almost second nature to him at this point. Except this time, he may have bit off more than they can chew.

The last thing anyone wants on a Monday morning is a call from their boss. So you can image that the Monkeys weren’t thrilled to get a call from Richard to be at the shop a little earlier than normal. And even less thrilled to find Richard there with a 1991 Chevy OBS with a truck bed full of parts.

The Monkeys have had their skills put to the test time and time again, but this time Richard really wanted to see what this crew could do. So, here’s the challenge: the Monkeys will have five days to complete the full frame off restoration including paint and body.

Luckily for them, there would be no need to wait on parts. The head Monkey had been squirreling away kick ass parts that he was able to get his hands on over time. Not from just any companies too, he wanted the best of best for this OBS.

The parts list:

Texas Speed and Performance (Engine)
PSI (The engine and transmission harness)
Dirty Dingo (Motor mount)
Magnaflow (Exhaust)
Ron Davis (Radiator)
Wilwood (Brakes)
Ridetech (suspension)
Dakota Digital (Gages)
Yukon Gears (Gears and axel)
Budnik (Wheels and Steering wheel)
Nitto (Tires)

With a starting parts list like this, you already know this Chevy is going to turn out badass! Stay tuned for specifics on the parts!

We’ll continue to update this article as we go along and add new videos! So make sure to bookmark this article and check back from time to time.
