  1. I am watching this like a mini serie. Hard work pays off! Great job for now!! Can't wait to watch the complete build, but i will not cheat 🙂 gonna watch every video

  2. B dude it's time to learn how.to use carbon fiber with epoxy easyer than fiberglass you could make you own top of the back plate behind engine strong and easy to lay out ànd then cut to fit after it hardens try it you will use it in every build

  3. I was under the impression that you should build up the fibre glass all in one application so all the fibres knit together while the resin is wet?

  4. I didn't go through all the comments for this video or the previous videos so apologies if someone else passed the same info on to you. This comment is regarding your repair techniques. Hopefully this will help with future repairs. When applying hi-fill primer, a better way would be to apply 3 full coats of primer before sanding as opposed to one coat then sand. By applying 3 coats before sanding you will get better fill and spend less overall time sanding. Also, overall surface prep prior to applying primer will insure that your primer will not flake or peel off. I would recommend that before applying your hi-fill primer, the entire surface to be refinished (painted) should be wet sanded with 1000 grit paper. After primer is applied and completed, before painting, go over the entire panel with 1500 wet sand. Take it for what it's worth, but I've done body and paint work for a long time and the techniques I've mentioned give excellent results. Looking forward to seeing the completed project.

  5. Hey there! Great work so far, this is shaping up to be an incredible build.
    I noticed you are doing some bonding together of fiberglass components, and were unsure of what lotus was using to stick them together.

    I'm on a race team, and when we are bonding carbon fibre / fiberglass components we usually use a methyl methacrylate adhesive to do the bonding. it's wicked strong/hard stuff and works well on composite-composite as well as composite-metal bonds.
    I can't say for certain that's what lotus is using, but it's probably likely. The stuff we use comes in a 2 part tube that goes into a special plastic caulking gun. I don't know the brand that we use off hand, but if you want me to look it up I can.
    Dunno if this will help, but i figured I'd offer it up.

    Good luck with the rest of the build!

  6. Just bought a B is for build Evora t shirt. You lad are an inspiration. My first car had damage (being hit from the side) and I went at it in a b is for build style and now its mint. Keep up the great work mate. Currently one of my favorite YouTubers. 😀

  7. Really like the timeline of the episodes, the start especially, it makes it extremely enjoyable to watch, no spoilers 🙂

  8. too much talking homie I have a long attention span but these videos are starting to be a waste of time. need much more progress

  9. Thanks for the positive influence and advice. It helped me get through a boring part of my current project. I really appreciate it.

  10. Most interesting and difficult to fabricate part gets 0 screen time. Awesome BRUH! B is for Biillde! These videos are build videos the same way a chilton book is a OEM factory manual. Not helpful at all but look! Diagrams!

  11. Please stop using the word "Bondo" because Bondo is a brand of "Body Filler" and I hope you aren't using that crap on your super car! Use the term Body Filler its what people who work professionally in the car repair industry.

  12. to the married guys. i know, imagine if we had this kinda time. oh the glory we could create. corner cry time

  13. Buddy you have a similar story as me, but now you have Patreon and the shop to help support the cause, I managed on my own. The feels are too strong. My support is with you brother. Right now I'm driving a E60 M5, built in a similar way and I can relate to you on the wanting a super car and actually building it.

  14. That portable belt sander is very handy, have you already changed the belt after all this fiberglass sanding ?
    And you don't have to drill a hole to prevent a crack to go further ?
