Welder Up, as seen on Discovery Channel's "Vegas Rat Rods". Welder Up is not your average car customization shop. Steve Darnell is the creative mastermind behind the motorized works of art that emerge from the Welder Up shop. Las Vegas is the perfect setting to inspire Steve to design the one-of-kind rat rods only he can create. Give Steve a theme for your build, and his imagination, creative materials, and careful attention to detail will bring your vision to life. Steve's incredible talent and mind-blowing creativity have caused a frenzy in the car world, landing Welder Up in the hit TV show Vegas Rat Rods now airing on the Discovery Channel. Vegas Rat Rods features the creation and execution of Steve's unique hot rods from start to finish. Want to get up close and personal with Steve's Mad-Max-style creations? Experience Steve's distinctive brand of rat-rod culture first hand by visiting the New Welder Up showroom and store. Inside, Steve has created the perfect setting to showcase his personal collection of rat rods as well as a few of the builds featured on Vegas Rat Rods. Welder Up is known for its eye-catching rides, but Steve also has a passion for producing short films and music videos and designing manterior spaces. Most recently, he created the post-apocalyptic set design, costumes, props, and vehicles for Five Finger Death Punch's "House of the Rising Sun" music video. Steve's masterpieces have been featured in national publications, including Hot Rod Magazine, Diesel Power Magazine, Diesel World Magazine, Diesel Tech Magazine, Rat Rod Magazine, Rebel Rodz Magazine, Ol' Skool Rodz Magazine, Mopar Magazine, Cruzin Magazine, and Elan Magazine, as well as in numerous newspaper and Internet articles.
