My Latest project 1971 4 Door GXL

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to this build.

I've been stockpiling bits for this a while now.

Whilst im waiting for a 2 door project i thought i would keep myself busy.

This shell is mint, well worth a restore.

 

ok, lets go.....

 

 

see you at the Yat.

Pete please dont PAD these videos out ...theres about 15 minutes of things i dont want to watch/see keep focused on the Topic in hand...Restoration of the FORD

 

I replied:

 

 

I appreciate what you are saying, however i enjoy putting other things in, I never intented when I set out to make restoration themed videos to undertake it in a formal style, its important for me to express myself and that is the primary intention, the useful restoration elements of the work are there for people to use/enjoy. I can fully understand your point though, and I realise for some it may be frustrating to see 'filler', I did think of doing an abridged version of all the work but the problem I had that I didnt get any artistic fullfillment and felt I was trying to be some sort of resto show, which im not . I'm merely expressing my identity, i hope that a spin off of this is that, if you can watch all the material, youll find what you want. Ive never had any feedback until yours to indicate the filler material was an issue or indeed distraction. If i was being paid or under a contract to produce restoration videos I would indeed adhere to the matter in hand, which of course would be cortina restoration, but it aint, its just entertainment using the medium of cortinas. I have spoken to countless individuals at the endless list of shows I attend and people have in fact enjoyed the whole package. You only have to look at the comments. Your point is valid and I really appreciate the fact youve taken time to indeed watch. I will bear in mind your excellent critique and I thank you. How did you get on with my 2 hour 10 mins vid? (taking back to owners etc) Its my opinion that ALL the material is relevant (im just brainstorming now as i type) the ads, the music the banter without this there would be no video at all because i just wouldnt do it. Im an entertainer at heart. I am open to feedback, its difficult using text to acuratley convey my sentiment, but whats important for me to make clear is I fully understand and appreciate your point, and once again I cant thank you enough for taking time to watch and reply. Pete.

I just read that just this minute, I think your reply was a little over courteous! I guess people just want things to be concise and to the point, not the show like your videos are. I prefer the show, loved some of those old ads!
