Plot Synopsis

BAD CHAD CUSTOMS is a one-hour reality series that follows Chad Hiltz and his Green Goblin Customs team -- shop manager and fiance Jolene, son Colton, lifelong friend and builder Aaron, and mechanic Alex -- as they build one-of-a kind vehicles with whatever they can find. Using only basic tools and his limitless ingenuity, Chad incorporates literally anything into his car builds -- parts from a boat, airplane, even an old locker. His unique creations include The Bat out of Hell, which has kitchen cabinet door knobs and a dorsal fin; and The Green Goblin, which has its engine in the back, trunk in the middle, and no doors. Each 60-minute episode takes viewers behind the scenes as the team works together to build some of the most outrageous vehicles ever seen. The series also highlights the evolving relationship between Chad and his son Colton. Growing up, the limited time Colton spent with his father had a great impact on his love for cars. Now working with his father full-time as an apprentice, Colton dives head first into the world of custom cars. And while Chad may be hard on him at times, Colton is thick-skinned and eager to learn the family business.

The sophomore season of BAD CHAD CUSTOMS premiered on Monday, August 17, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel. This season, Chad and the unconventional, newly branded 'Hiltz Auto Co' team are more ambitious than ever as they attempt a record seven builds in under six months. In the season opener, "Bad Chadillac," Chad takes on his first build under his new banner at Hiltz Automotive. The team takes a stubborn '57 Cadillac and transforms it into a futuristic, chromed-out roadster fit for a king. Continuing to push his limits, Chad also undertakes his first-ever motorcycle build to create a unique custom for a local body shop owner in time for the Wharf Rat Bike Rally only weeks away. From flashy dump trucks, to open-wheel racecars, there's no limit to what Chad and his team can build -but expanding business may just be their toughest build yet.
On Monday, October 5, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT, Discovery premiered "Rags to Riches," the Season 2 finale of BAD CHAD CUSTOMS. Chad's final build of the season is the centerpiece of his client's elegant New Year's Eve celebration. Last-minute decisions and the pressures of finishing on time are too much for Colton, leaving the short-staffed team scrambling for a victory
