      Been following Project Binky for a while now. It's my favorite build ever. Lots of great detail for a nerd like me.

        Because its real work, in real time, by real builders,(not gas monkey) it takes fucking FOREVER to put out episodes... That's the big issue i have following it.

        Chuck showed it to me and I was like "fuck yeah, 20 episodes over 4 years! i'm going to binge the shit out of this".......(two days later).... "Wait, its not done yet!?! ""

          Yep.....it IS real.

          The shows that compress builds into an hour create unrealistic expectaions from clients who have
          no idea what it really takes to make things. I love it when a guy says, "Really? It's not a big deal....is it?"........and I
          know that, maybe, his experience in making things is that he made a paper airplane once.....and it was shitty.

            Yeah, when I first showed Andy an episode of Project Binky, he was totally stoked. So much so that when they published the ~2 hours of machining the accessory drive, he watched every freaking minute. I started watching it about 2 years ago, and the last few episodes have been the quickest delivered.

            The only two builder shows that are even remotely realistic are Dave Kindig's Bitchin Rides where they say they have cars for months/years, and Dan Short's Fantomworks where he details the total cost of parts and the total number of hours it took, which is always in the hundreds, if not thousands of hours.

            I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

              Yeah fantomworks seems to never short sell a project. They do some amazing work though. I was watching one a few weeks ago where someone was wanting to get a Bricklin running and driving. I never caught the end of it to see the final product or figure out how much the final tally was but I am sure it was far more than what the actual value of the car could ever be.
