I'd be honest, I reckon the Patrons deserve it a full week before the rest of us (I'm a pleb, btw, with merch instead).

Cannot wait. I gambled on this coming in January and rewatched the entire series over Christmas.

I suspect you can't risk a long gap as someone will copy the footage and stick it up on their own channel first.

Insert "State of the World" rant here. But yeah, sounds about right. Even amongst Patrons there's bound to be one.

The 1 day early for Patreon members is a nice nod to the support but I think most pay to keep it going and as a thank you as opposed to and access privileges

I see it just like I see other entertainment on TV. The quality of what they produce is good enough to match content you normally have to pay for, so I don't mind paying for it. As you said, that allows them to keep going, and buy the right tools so they can do it right.

There are other channels I've watched which are more like a VLOG, 1 camera jobbies, where the work is not as good. I'm sure they also spend a fair amount of money on kit and parts, but I wouldn't pay to watch it.

My god. When he first said what the final colour was going to be I was doubtful, but what an incredible result. I can't wait to see it in the flesh one day.

Not long now. Might even be reay by the end of the summer*....



*2023, possibly.

Wow, possibly the best paint job in the whole history of painting cars. As I watched, I thought that it was going to look good, but nothing prepared me for the finished article.

That is 'amazing' in many ways and very, very clever - can appreciate the work that has gone into that and what they have achieved. However, I would have stuck to the base colours...
