Justin Dearinger revealed that some of the accessories were taken out of his car once filming the episode has finished. His remodeled car had a mini drive-in-theater installed as well as a champagne pop-up, but those two were scrapped for safety concerns.
And for Martino, one of his restorations turned out to be a massive disappointment and gave him a lot of frustration.
Not All Contestants Had Good Experiences
As it turns out, there were a few of the young contestants who didn't have the best experience while filming the show. One of these contestants was Jake Glazier, who appeared in the fourth season.
His feelings were shared by two other contestants named Justin Dearinger and Seth Martino, who both featured in the show's final season.
Ask Me Anything
After their respective appearances on "Pimp My Ride," they each took part in their Reddit thread called "Ask Me Anything.". Soon enough, the HuffPost website contacted all three of them for an interview back in February 2015.
The website outlet also chatted with one of the show's executive producers, hoping to get his take on the stories.
A Robotic Arm
During Martino's episode, the body shop crew outfitted a robotic arm inside his car, but to operate it, you to have a laptop computer, so in the end, his gadget turned out to be quite worthless. This leaves us asking, "Why didn't they just buy him a laptop??"
To add insult to injury, the LED bulbs that were fitted into the seats proved to be problematic as well.
The LED Lights were Too Hot
Martino explained to HuffPost, "the LED lights would get really hot if left on so I couldn't use them while I was driving, besides that there were several issues with the car."
The crew ended up taking the gull-wing doors off as the pistons that were used to lift them, prevented them from putting seat belts in the back, which can be dangerous.
