    Is anyone following Nathan, the Brit in LA building the Z3 Beetle Hybrid? I am as he's dealing with his depression and continuing onwards with this build. He's now on episode 10 and his health is good.

    Yeah! I stumbled across his channel when he purchased the Z3 from Copart. I hadn't got mine at the time and was interested in the diff mounting and boot spot welds splitting.

    Look back at his other videos, he's done some interesting stuff. I've not watched them all yet.

    Am enjoying it among other car watches on YouTube. He is certainly fearless with the angle grinder and reciprocating saw.

    No idea how he is going to sit in it when finished though.

    Also keeping tabs on Urchfab and his Mongrel. Ford 100e (I think) grafted onto an MX5.

    I do love a rebody

    I'm sure most of you will be watching Project Binky... If not, they've taken a classic Mini and are putting Toyota Celica running gear into it.

    I am involved with the website Not2Grand. Chris Pollitt, the journo who writes it, is editor of the Car & Classic website. We have done a few videos for Not2Grand, and he's done some for Car & Classic. A couple of them have been made at my friends unit, where Chris and Richard Brunning (from Project Binky) came up to work on Chris's £100 Mercedes. I'm in that video, and the Not2Grand NSU Ro80 one.

    Latest episodes of the Mutt are up.

    If anyone wants to see how the Z3 is put together this is very interesting. If not bloody scarey.

    He's after some advice on stripping down wiring looms if there's anyone here who hasn't been watching his videos.

    That half inch box section should provide all the rigidity you'd need for a sports car. What could possibly go wrong?

    Nah, that'll be distortion on the camera lens, surely?
