    I just started watching this project yesterday, and I am loving it !!!

    Definitely better than the car programs of TV! After 5 episodes I feel like I've learnt loads, laughed a lot, and gained even more inspiration to just get stuck in and do something!

    The quality and amount of fabrication that they do blows my mind every time. Think we can all relate to 'blackhurst time' though - a 20 minute job taking 4 hrs -

    Still as amazing as ever.

    I liked the timing of making a 'simple' bracket - It's ridiculous how much time we waste pissing about with tat, I was only thinking last night whilst eating my tea...... It took me three years to make that Golf, what a fucking pointless waste of life.... then I thought..... what else could I be doing? Felt a little more positive about it then.



    good mix of information and entertainment. Take the apprentice of the screen and put these guys on instead. Seriously, I watched that shit last night, well a few minutes of it before I wanted to smash something - what a bunch of vacuous cunts.

    'lord' sugar advising on business strategy - that twat marketed the email phone - twice.

    I'm seriously impressed by their commitment.

    Like we are all far too aware, it is impossible to understand where the time goes. 1 bracket = a day. At £40hr cheap garage that's nearly £300, but everyone wants it for nothing.

    4 nights work ( 8 - 10 hrs) cutting out my brake adaptor plates so far. Realised one hole is out on one plate - had to order more plate last night to start again

    Any other bits needed - torch/pedals etc

    Scratch/ hi freq start?

    You're happy with it right? (Or at least, whoever did your welding is?)

    We are so definitely related.

    TIG's are great for brackets and such things that need to look pretty. But I always pick up the MIG for 99% of car work as its easier, faster and you dont need to be all comfy

    I totally agree with you there Al, a lot of effort is needed to tig...I come to realise this. I’m not relishing welding up my rollcage at all.
