There are about 10 episodes.. good to flick through 8)

Yes I know there's a Youtube thread... but I think effort like this should be supported. ;)

Hah, yep... was actually looking to see if there were any more big buildups happening over there.

Have watched pretty much all these MightyMod episodes now.. awesome stuff. =D>

I love how they can produce this and make Ignition DVD's look even more backyard.

We need to drag them out to a cruise and do some features.

Was going to email them to see if they were planning on heading up to Jambo.

Great stuff - should be more of it. From a technical POV they certainly are low budget, but they can carry the whole thing on their personalities.

I've only ever watched a couple of eps of Ignition, and it just makes me cringe. The Mighty Mods guys don't seem to take themselves so seriously, and it works!

There's not much being built at the moment. The only real big buildups are turbo-march & tony's cars. But there not going to be finished anytime soon.

It's funny I just finished watching an ignition dvd & was thinking the samething :lol:

Yeah, that's my mate's car. Took him ages to get it restored, converted over to right hand drive and get a new crate motor for it. Haven't had a drive of it yet but hopefully soon!

Serious? awesome work =D> Really looks like it's straight off the factory floor.

Any idea what kind of price it was to get it over and converted?

Apparently there are plenty of good quality aftermarket parts to make it a solid/reliable car... and plenty of enthusiasts too!

From what he told me it's actually the car they bought over to advertise the movies when they came out and hadn't done that many miles. I saw it a few times during the build and it certainly needed some serious work on the interior as well. The change over of the steering was a bit of a nightmare as the De Lorean has so many different parts from different brands, the motor is a peugeot 6 etc. The actual steering gear ended up being a case of trying to find out what everything was and trying to find similar items.

No idea on price but I know it was expensive. His name is in the credits, google search him and you will know he can afford it... I drove his other car, it's an Vantage...

The music video is out now! I and others suggested to them to cut it and host it separately as a sort of business card to get it viral and get more people watching the show so try and share it around 8)

That's a Kei Jimny/Sierra. They only get the narrowtrack version over there to comply with Keijidosha regs.

Watching that episode made my week... it also wants to make be blow wads of cash importing Kei Suzukis!
