Operation Metro Build ~ Part 1
Join Lance and Wyatt of Turnin Rust as they initiate Operation Metro Build, a 1954 International Metro van they recently sold to a client from Ireland. In the meantime, the guys get a call on another 1954 International metro van — one that’s a little bit too close to home to walk away from.
While finding vehicles in their back yard, Wesley boards a plane to fly across the U.S to New York, where he gets to dig through the snow and find a 1960 Compact COE cab Lance had recently purchased from a good hot rod buddy.
