My only take away from this episode - "more head makes your 'pump' last longer" @5:56/32:46

I may need to catch exactly which Jag that water pump came from.
Might be useful for my Trick-6 without the expense of a purpose made part.

EDIT: Scratch that, it's only for the heater and too small to be useful. :(
Also silly expensive unless you get one from a scrap yard.

Richard- You know the Brits found a cure for AIDS, don't you? They gave it a Jaguar part number and now nobody can afford it... :mrgreen:

I like the process and workmanship, but it's as if their goal has shifted away from finishing it, to maintaining their YouTube revenue stream by constantly adding needless detail. It's like a TV show where they keep adding in story arcs instead of moving along toward a conclusion in a timely fashion—with viewership dropping off the more they drag it out.

At some point those 10,000 wires, brackets, and bob's are ALL going to have to come back off to apply paint. :roll:
Have to congratulate them on their success in turning one of the simplest modern cars ever made into something rivaling a new one for complexity. :ack:
Sleepiest episode yet but I did still see a few useful fabrication tricks.
As for my own wiring, I intend to have as few as possible!
