    I suppose it's a case of "Because I can" ?

    Some people get bored lying around after work and need something to keep them mentally and physically challenged and need an escape. I suppose this is his way of doing that. Great project and would have had an enormous sense of accomplishment.

    I think that is a stonking conversion. Taking the power of the future (now?) and replacing the ICE units can be done well, this seems to be such an example.

    Aye, so have I. Some of their detailed work is actually pretty shoddy if you get a chance to look closely, welds not finished properly, H & S rules not in place, PPE not always as it should be etc. That said, it is a scripted programme working to and against time and a budget so it's to be expected I suppose. :oops:

    It makes interesting viewing just the same. (y) Certainly beats loads of other 'reality TV' type shows. :rolleyes:

    Sounds like the original 8 Series engine was knackered anyway so why not . Was an interesting read .
