Ooooo, I can see an hour wasted later today at some point! I've really enjoyed this series.

I’ve just watched episode 19 and as usual it was great. But it left me wondering if they’re ever going to finish it.

What an amazing build, talk about”anal”.

If they finish it - we'll loose our entertainment!

Besides, in this case I'm not so sure it's the ride they are after - it's just getting there that's the fun part!

BTW- haven't had the time yet to watch.... maybe today.

Amazing! First time I have seen that a flex drive that stout. I wonder if it makes noise.

I lost interest when they re-invented the heater.

But Mike, you have to admit they did a great job of stuffing and heater-A/C unit into a very custom tiny spot.

Today’s episode actually spared us some machining montages. That’s a first. But the remote mounted alternator and AC bracket was a neat touch. I’m not sure I’m sold on the flex drive from a longevity point of view, maybe I’m not educated enough on this new tangled product but I did like the outcome.
The repurposing of a wiring harness is information that was very cool to see wrapped up. I do look forward to the episode where they then splice in the Toyota EFI harness into that British Layland/Sumitomo/Rover harness....
These episodes are always interesting and even entertaining- makes me feel like I should donate after all these years of being tuned in.

Actually I was envious of that little gem they made, after fitting the Vintage Air unit to the 510!

I have total respect for these guys, lots of engineering (and sometimes re-engineering) to achieve fitting all that hardware into such a small package. I myself am embarking on a similar build and I dread thinking about each and every little aspect needing engineering. The British dudes clearly display there is no quick and easy solution, lots of thought and “CAD” required.
