    This just happened, which is nice 😊

    Massive thanks to everyone for the support, it’s much more motivating to know people are watching and hopefully enjoying the little films.
    Just finalising the edit of the next one, which will be out at teatime on Tuesday.

    Hopefully it didn't come across as a criticism, that was 100% not the intention. I still really enjoy your ramblings about EV stuff as you genuinely present it really well. The huge difference in subscribers proves you made the right choice to go EV by a country mile and to be fair most of the people in the comments section seem pretty normal 🤣🤣🤣. 
    If you do set up another channel for the old stuff that would be even better!!!

    Strut ya stuff, 
    The familiar sound of a broken spring required the front shock to come off,

    With the beetles wee bonnet the struts are under the scuttle panel.  with the n.s having been replaced sometime recently i noted some odd chopping had been done! 

    At first i thought savages! Then i thought hold up, theres got to be a reason here as cutting it would be far more work that simply pulling it off. Indeed they were right. It feels as if the trims bonded on maybe from a new screen at some point.  It wouldnt budge
    I thought id cut the other side but this would have taken ages. So some eyeballing and a step cutter drill and we have access for a 1/2" extension and some ugga dugga action .A rubber bung in after and shes almost factree. 

    No further pics as the following repairs involved a spinning track rod end and spring compressor shenanigans.  Jobs that really dont want to be remembered in pictures!

    This is an odd one. I'm a terrible salesman, so doesn't seem likely I'd approach someone to try and sell them a sticker. People like buying them, I'm happy to provide them. They show support, I get to spend money on absolutely awful cars. Win win.

    Certainly the remap isn't happening until the clutch is done! No need for it to be at the same time though.
    Today though, the 2CV came out for some parts hauling, and so we could assist @richykitchywith another ridiculous collection caper. I'll say no more, because that's for him to do, but he won't be short of tales to talk about. Once he finally gets home. I hope he gets home...

    A post from @vaughant on @Skizzer's thread about how my channel is completely different from how it began has got me thinking - the EV stuff is definitely what brings the views and engagement from my current subscriber base, but I do also quite enjoy pissing around with knackered old shite.
    I still have the Panda 30, Rover 216 Cabriolet and Clio in my unit and plan to get on with them, but videos on these subjects don't really attract much interest.  
    Not sure how to proceed - I'm toying with the idea of setting up another channel to post shit old car content on, keep it separate from the EV stuff.

    When I saw the video on the Victor FE pop up as a recommendation I thought it'd either be another freelance classic car journalist or someone from here. Great video on it and I'm going to have a mosey through your back catalogue. Another subscriber gained here.

    A refreshing change of scenery today -

    Front panels got a few skims of filler here and there to tidy up some of the welds, then it all got a good rub in preparation for another coat of epoxy primer. 
    I thought it was probably a good idea to finish masking off the inner wings before throwing any paint about -


    This used up my available time, so I'll have to get stuck in on my way home from work in the coming week.

    Managed to get a couple of hours on this today to get the back end rubbed out.

    Just got the top edge adjacent to the boot seal to do, then with a bit of luck this weekend I'll be getting stuck in to fettling the front end up to the same stage as the rest.

    Nearside rear quarter finished off this week.

    Identified some low spots in the rear valance, they were given a thin skim of fine filler.

    Then rubbed and primed again.

    The dolly was shortened and bolted on today, surprisingly it fitted absolutely perfectly - wasn't expecting that!


    After that was done, good tidy up and vacuum session happened - it was incredibly dusty in the shed.

    Once that was done, I continued taping up the inner front wings in preparation for fettling up the front end. Just got to give the rear panel its final block/rub and I can switch ends.

    I've just got around to watching the Victor video. Most enjoyable and nicely done.
    Dad liked his Vauxhalls, particularly his FB estate, but after selling it in Germany (forces posting) and being spoilt by the charms of a '66 Taunus 17m estate with its V4 engine, column change and 6volt electrics,  traded the quickly corroding Ford in 1970, soon after returning to the UK. He replaced it with an FE Victor saloon (pictured on his drive with my battered Regal and my brother's Jawa 350). He did not warm to the FE and briefly flirted with a Viva HC estate before becoming a Citroen GSA man until his passing in 1986.  Dad's FE had a black interior, giving it a totally different and somewhat claustrophobic atmosphere compared with your light and airy example.
