    How are we doing folks? I hope this is OK to post and it doesn't come across as shameless self promotion. I have been making YouTube videos for the past year and a half on a variety of topics, mainly based around my own projects but with some car reviews and road tests thrown in too.

    Content includes the restoration of a 1974 MGB GT that has been sitting up since 1991...


    Restoration of a 1974 1303S beetle with a 1915cc engine in it...


    Mechanical repairs to another 74 beetle...


    A TDI conversion on a 1987 VW T3 camper...


    Restoration of a Lister D engine...


    Please do pop over and take a look, and if you like what you see, please do subscribe.

    Many thanks!

    Some interesting videos there. I have already taken a look at a few of your MGB videos as I won one myself. Keep up the good work.

    Sub'd!!! Always glad to support Irish Youtubers. I share some of my motorbike projects on my YT.

    I sold you your Beetle back in 2009, I want to say! What happened?!?!?! It was gorgeous when you had her done first!!!

    The way it was when I got her back in 2008, iirc

    Subscribed a couple of months ago. Really enjoy your videos... Keep up the good work!!
    I also have an MGB GT waiting for me to get the motivation to restore it, so I'm watching with interest!!
    Looking forward to seeing what your new camera is like, although the footage on the one you've been using is very good.

    Hi Ian! I do indeed remember you. Wow! That's a fantastic video to see! Definitely a blast from the past for me. Well when it had its first resto, it was found to be badly rotten in many key areas, which were well disguised in places so you may not have known about them. I used it as a daily after the restoration and the rot started to take hold again so it needed a tidy up. Unfortunately the guy who's doing it for me now is taking the absolute p!ss, and has had it for over a year and a half and I just can't get him to get the thumb out. So that's where it is now. I will get it back on the road. When though, I don't know.

    Thanks everyone for supporting my channel!

    Thanks! Any questions you have, ask away. I'll do my best to help. The new camera should be with me in a week or so. I'm looking forward to trying it out!

    Hopefully for you"your guy" is not on this thread as he might take offence at saying he is taking the piss.I think the current covid thing seems to have had an impact on lots of areas.
    Do your own resto and youtube it.:)

    Hi, I seen your fantastic review for your 2013 Auris Hybrid. It was one of the best reviews of this car on Youtube period. I also subscribed to your channel. Keep up the great work.

    I don't really care if he does or doesn't see it, to be honest. I've made it clear to him exactly what my opinion is at this point, given that he's had my car since September 2019, well before Covid hit, and nothing was done for months. I don't have the facility or expertise to do the work myself, but that doesn't give him the right to take the piss.


    Thank you everybody for showing your support and for the words of encouragement! There'll be plenty more material coming out of Endfloat studios over the next while!

    I would suspect that you would have the technical know how, and what better way to brush up on your own
    skills than a resto on one of your own cars.

    Gaw on, you know it makes sense...:D

    Ah it's in primer now with your man who's doing for me anyway. He's telling me it'll be in top coat next week. I'll believe it when I see it. Either way, the fun begins for me putting it all back together and making it the car I want it to be.
