    Will the Tesla’s parking sensors become active again when y’all finish or will y’all leave those disabled permanently?

    What I liked about the show FantomWorks is that they show you how long a build/restoration job actually takes by showing a day counter for each job. Like a restoration job on a '62 Continental will kick the episode off then halfway it'll say "Day 143"

    Plot twist: TESLA is really his work and idea. But his old bestfriend Elon Musk stole it from him and these are his steps toward his vengeance.

    Wasn't really into this channel until someone told me you was dropping a V8 in the Tesla and I said this man's a god send. Cuz the only way you'll get a Tesla in my driveway if it has a V8 in it. And if he can do it I know I could definitely do it.

    Hey Rich. I know you're mostly about cars and similar. But how about a Tesla powered boat? Maybe a powerboat for water skiing or perhaps a longer distance yacht with solar recharging while sailing or anchored. Could just imagine both the yacht and myself recharging somewhere in a secluded beach in Pacific. If you ever build that I'm more than happy to provide some onboard high class whisky and low class humour 👍😬 Hell i might even be able to convince my partner to provide relaxing massages. So yeah that means you need a massage table, etc.

    Taking out WIRES to save weight!? The battery pack is 1,100 pounds, and it's gone, so I wouldn't worry about the weight. Also, why worry about the wires you aren't using; just don't use them and get on with it. Good idea though to replace all of the flood damaged seat belts, wiring, and electrical parts. The complexity, money, and time consumed by this project reminds me of how glad I am that I am not involved with it at all. I'm sure it will be great when done. As I watch these videos, I keep thinking to myself, "what a nightmare" over and over again.
