    Just watching this series gave me nightmares, many moons ago a mate asked me to give him a hand doing a small one off job, by his own admission he was *NO SWEARING ON THIS FORUM* at welding but had a mig welder ( and pretty *NO SWEARING ON THIS FORUM* at most other things too) and this guy was a time served mechanic to boot, anyway these two brothers who all had together far too much money to burn decided that they wanted to fit an alfasud 1500 flat four engine with a garret t3 turbo into a fiat x19, they waved a wad of cash at him and he said yes, needless to say he is no longer a mate, it nearly cost me a divorce, never again :doh: good series though.

    They mention listening to Duff McKagan when the instal os completed, but I'm not sure that's his style of music. :dontknow:

    They mention SRV guitar solos, that's Stevie Ray Vaughan, a bit of a guitar prodigy, who met his death far too young, I think he was involved in a helicopter crash after a music festival.

    Yes, I have been an SRV fan for many years, but none of the music sounds anything like him.

    From their Patreon page.


    "Thanks to Patreon, we're now able to do this full time and bring episodes out every month or so as opposed to 3-5 months. Your patronage means we're now able to bring videos out much faster. It doesn't mean that the jokes will be any less corny, it will mean however that we're almost certain not to run out of tea. And that in itself is a huge weight from our shoulders."

    I just jumped on their website and gave them a tenner towards the project - I've had easily that much entertainment from these guys.

    Im sure there are others out there who can do this sort of work, but I have yet to see it. great mix of parts off the shelf, fabrication, creativity, store bought and home made tools, ect ect ect.

    awesome.
