Ach, that’s the trouble with the UK now. It’s all Health and Safety.

:)

I enjoy watching it and will enjoy seeing that car going once again. Hats off to him.
Yeah you can't even get your sky dish put up these days....... :p

Just watched the one where he finds he has a cracked head and he is going to remove it in a single domestic garage.
I have subscribed as he is actually watchable for me.
He comes across well, even if you cringe for him sometimes.

After all he’s been through with that 308, I think he was almost pleased to find something properly wrong with it.

Lets face it you wouldn't want to buy a car from him...

Bit like me from 40 years ago!

You can do a lot worse than Jakc and Ratarossa on youtube, I think those two are some of the better ones actually since they’re not running a vlog thinly disguised as a car channel as so many of them are these days.

I hope he has found the nut that fell off his feeler gauges or is it in the engine somewhere ?????

I can't believe he's doing it. Good on him for really going for it. He's almost given up a few times, he's very open with the frustration and fear. He's just a home mechanic, I enjoy it

Got to admire what he's managed to do, opportunities like this don't normally happen to the man in the street, let's be honest we're all just a little bit jealous. I know I am.

Anyone with a can do attitude should make stuff happen and be praised for it. I’m sick of people denigrating others who have more gumption, just because they can do it online without real reprisal. I admire this guy’s attitude but I haven’t got much time for his videos and I quietly question some of his methods. Nevertheless he should be encouraged.

Is this what we can expect the finished engine to look like?



I notice on the Ferrari website, their white 512BBi has the lower half of the body painted black. I reckon it looks better all white.


On reflection maybe that is silver and black?
Two alternators, do Ferrari know something we don’t?
