They certainly aren't using the "Toyota Method." There was just as much work in process sitting around as there is in any US custom builder.
Nice find, Buff. Good video.

I figure commercial, because I didn't see any that were incomplete.
Japanese built trucks, but did you notice that one of the workers was sitting on a FoamPro box?“I am more than just a serious basketball fan. I am a life-long addict. I was addicted from birth, in fact, because I was born in Kentucky.”

Didn't understand a darn thing he was saying. Speaking Chinese I suppose (inside joke).
See how small the inner fly section of the aerial was? Skinny Jap's I suppose, it was about as narrow as the ladder on top of an Aerialscope.~Drew
