    Re: Slightly deranged Mini Project

    Thanks for the link!

    These guys are outstanding, really great work resulting in a very professional finish.

    One of the Youtube comments said they should have pitched this as a show for the Discovery Channel, i thoroughly agree with that!

    The trouble with that is it'd all be rushed through to completion at the expense of the workmanship, just to make a TV show - Beetle Crisis 2 is a prime example of what can happen when this is done.

    You've probably already seen them but this guy - http://www.markevans.co.uk/mark-evan...ngineering.php - makes some half decent shows, usually repeated weekly on one of the many Discovery channels, well worth a watch if you've missed them.

    Re: Slightly deranged Mini Project

    Very true, and if nothing else, putting all the Youtube videos together and making one complete build log video would make for a fun few hours watching when the mini is complete.

    I do like all of the x Is Born series that Mark Evans has done. I'm an aviation geek, but the 4x4 one was very good, highly recommended to anyone who hasn't seen it.

    ^ Agreed. I hope they're already thinking about about what to make next, but i'm not sure you get any more deranged than this!

    Re: Slightly deranged Mini Project

    I thought it would be interesting to take a peek at the first link and then ended up watching the first 4 episodes. These guys are completely bonkers but they have kept me interested and fascinated by a subject that I have absolutely no interest in, the only reason I'm not watching more now is I have to go to bed, but I'll watch more later.

    Thanks for the links.

    Ok, seen 5 and 6 now, when will 7 be available??

    Welcome to the club(!)

    There's roughly a 2 month gap between episodes which is just long enough to forget about it completely, meaning you get a nice surprise when a new episode appears.

    It will, but it is the engineering and fabrication processes that have had me gripped. It is essentially a new build - the amount of original body shell left is minimal (roof, A B and rear pillars effectively!).

    The delivery by the two guys is brilliant though.
