I'd seen bits here and there of this over the years. I just binge-watched the lot. Some brilliant work there. Imagine what they could do with a decent unit of measurement, such as inches, feet, and yards. :cheers:

Reminds me a bit of the old TV show "Cheers", where a critic once said, "People used to go down to the pub for a drink and to socialize. Now they watch a TV show about people going to a pub and socializing." As long as you're still working on your car, I guess it's okay to watch :)

I get a lot from those videos. First thing I get is that someone is taking as long with their build as I am with mine...

If you look at their YouTube videos as business for them, which it is, they have zero reason to finish the project. Just keep adding more needless/questionable features to keep video views happening. I wonder if they'd be doing the same if there was no YouTube.

Anyone have betting pool on how long they own it after completion?
My own bet would be that some rich twit buys it before it's quite finished and only lets them do a test drive.
Good chance it never really sees the road beyond some car shows. :roll:
