A Lithuanian man has been garnering lots of attention for his hobby of turning old beat-up cars into refurbished masterpieces – and you’ll never guess how he does it.

He starts out with an ordinary clunker, one you might find in a junkyard. This one’s a Mercedes Benz CLK Class. The fur coat is optional, but cool nonetheless.

Not many people have enough patience for this.

Can’t forget the interior! It goes through the same ordeal – lots of foam!

Not done yet, though! A real artist mixes his own paints.

The end result is almost too extraordinary to believe!
