    Hi mate what amazing video, so nice to see someone get such a lovely gift, car looks amazing, I've had horrible year, and as single dad off 2 every days a struggle, I thought was such a great story I've emailed Alex and the team, asking if anyway could help me and my 2 littleones with our car to get back on road, would be amazing to get some kind help and have some luck for us other the bad luck, take car and hope enjoying car :)

    Good and careful job done by Gareth, Alex and Jack. Wish Dave a good health and motivation! The wheels guy though simply sprayed the pefect light silver colour OEM wheels with that gray paint- those should be sanded and powdercoated to be durable.

      @DSS199 Well, I'm big enough and ugly enough to own my mistakes. So I apologise for my assumptions and am glad for you and your Dad as enthusiasts who both share an interest. I hope your Dad's ill health isn't permanent and I apologise that my cynicism about BGvideo influencers led to me putting 2 and 2 together and come up with 5

    2. DSS199
      преди 17 дни

      @TheTerryTurbo123 no coincidence, it was there by design. You realise hours of footage was edified down into a smaller episode. There isn’t time to explain every little detail. The car is my fathers, he was there to assist due to my ill health at the time of filming. Simples.

    3. TheTerryTurbo123

      @DSS199 Well from my initial assumptions, that only leaves an uncanny coincidence then. Vid felt about as real as a £23 note but fair play on getting your car done up out of it all
