Yes watched that one. Guess it was harder to be flippant with that one although the bit at the chromer's was Tim's usual rubbish.

Nice Alpine at the end.


I had seen it before (and the Jag) so this must be a repeated series .... I just don't remember the 500 ...

According to the National Geographic site, home of SOS, the new series for 2018 starts in March, so anything you're looking at now on NatGeo or E4 will be the previous series won't it? Maybe if we're really lucky Fuzz will post to advise us about this and whether you, Rich, have in fact broken the internet. :lol:

There's a Car SOS thread, I didn't realise, apologies to the O/P. UKJeeper has got it right, the man's insufferable. I put this in another thread, oops.
"Talking of old metal, I suffered Car SOS yesterday. Suffered? That presenter, he's insufferable. I actually watched it with the sound off. They restored a wartime Austin Tilly without making it look new, and a fine job they did of it too. This clip is all about stripping the engine, but if you didn't see the program, and that's understandable, at the beginning of the clip is the Tilly, only for a second or two mind."

Anyone see the MGA on Monday on the More4 repeat of Car SOS?

The eagle-eye amongst us may have spotted the Moss badges on the car-parts staff shirts ... and a little simple research shows that Moss supply pretty much every panel for the MGA and most of the mechanicals. I've just watched an out-take on Facebook/YouTube and it shows Fuzz re-building the front suspension. He taking shiny new or refurbished parts out of lots of boxes ..

Which is lucky as they pretty much rebuilt that car from the chassis up! How much would that little lot cost (even at Tim's "negotiated 50% discount")

And I wasn't surprised at the demise of the back-end panels in the acid bath ... I think it was held together by the paint!
