Watched the first three episodes so far and I don't really understand the intention of the program.

Three episodes working with panels that are easily sourced on ebay or from Club members. I could understand it more if these were the panels that are not available e.g. rear quarter.

He isn't happy with them himself either. That headlight shell is never going to be any good and it's got to be right to line-up with the bonnet etc. Hold-on though the bonnet is rubbish too so where does he get the 'line' from. There is no way this would be cost effective.

It's always interesting though.

What's the purpose of anything on YouTube?

To me its a Guy just trying to demonstrate through the blogs he puts up what's possible with a little time and effort. He's not a pro with all the gadgets, he's the average person working in his garage as most of us are.

That's my take on it anyway.

Yeh, ok but I feel that even your average 'Joe' is better off buying better panels. That scuttle panel is awful!

Anyway he's brave finding things out whilst filming and it is an addictive blog (like Project Binky).

And sometimes called 'sugar scoop'.

Would you reuse that 'nose cone' when you can get a FG one for peanuts? If it was an historic car and had history e.g. hit a tree with that front-end when doing the Monte Carlo Rally it might be justified but ....

Oh well I like the guy and tbh if I had a wife like that who spoke about Datsun history I'd be a happy chap too (why worry about a few dents in the bonnet ;-) ).

I do agree, but I also like that he is willing to spend a bit of time fixing the (hopefully) original bits. He would rather fix it than buy it, hence why its called Home Built

Still watching these and they're excellent. He doesn't pretend to be a pro. Explains things well and is obviously competent enough to get some great results.

The Fun Facts make me cringe so I don't watch the last bit, but good on him for getting her involved with her own little section.
