    I hadn't bothered to watch the video, but seeing everybody praising it, thought I'd better see what the fuss was about.

    Well done, enough solid information, pleasant voice modulation ( not unlike Malcolm Oastler) a solid 7/10 from me. Bloody good first effort.

      I turned up the tech-nerdiness on this one. I reckon I could talk tech shit on this car all day...

        Nerd factor detail is high...may need to do a market research survey to gauge product demand lol.

        It’s a great watch over breakfast πŸ‘ I particularly like the fact that others groan as much as I do these days as I get up and down crawling around the car :D

              and another thing today - new roll cage means the mounting of the rear claim no longer lines up - so my 1/4 turn camlocs don't line up any more... so after fettling everything to kind of fit again, its time to regales and remount the rear clam... again. ugh... but then its done!

              ps watch the vid ^^^ its kindve cool! im interested to hear if this amount of nerd (perhaps with more/any editing and less shit non scripted verbal diarrhoea) would actually be interesting to anyone aside from myself

                Non scripted verbal diarrhea works for me. Video was good.

                  Finally got around to watching your two most recent videos, enjoyed them very much. The tech nerdiness worked for me, and having you explain things while pointing at stuff was very helpful, I now have a much better understanding of what you're doing and how it's supposed to work. I try to follow along with the written explanations but it was all a bit above my pay grade. Keep it up, I'll watch stuff like this all day!

                          The vid is light years ahead of soooo many car channels it is actually funny.

                          It's a rad project, fucked if I could do it. Well done.
