i've got as far as episode 5.

i thought that there were areas of my car that really needed a rethink but having looked at that, i have what can only be described as the "Rolls Royce' of sevenesque roadsters.

looking at the frame, it appears to be welded, i thought Arch motors brazed the frames but maybe not it could be gas welded.

Colin Chapman strikes again with his "add lightness" almost to the point of dangerous.

the cooling fans made me laugh, he even says it overheats both fans are too small to do any cooling at all and to be honest probably block more air to the radiator than provide.

i will continue to watch.

I put the series on my watch list. It looks interesting.

Cheers,
