    Considering the bodge job he was given to start with, he's sorted it quite well. I suspect if he'd done it from scratch the result would be quite good. He does seem rather knowledgeable on the controller & ECU side. Shame he didn't sort the brake pipes properly & build a nicer switch panel..

    Seen a few but I want hydrogen fuel cells to come in. Battery technology is fool's gold. I cannot understand why they aren't pouring money into hydrogen infrastructure.

    this will happen sooner than you think. you'll have to buy fuel by the drum if you want to actually start the engine in your rusting relic at a car show

    Unlikely anytime soon..

    Even if EV's were being sold at 2 million units per year it still wouldn't be enough to tip the scale by 2030.

    As of 2020 BEV sales amounted for 5% of all cars sold.

    And BEV includes hybrid and PHEV + EV ;)

    I don't really care for the guy's tone and unsubscribed from his channel awhile back but obviously he knows what he's doing.
    Why he bought the cheapest most horribly rusted P38 he could find and then ascribed that vehicle's issues to the model, I got tired of it pretty quick.

    The videos are worth watching though. The work he did to get the vehicle electronics to integrate w/ the ICE kit also apply to anyone thinking of doing an engine swap.

    He didn't buy it - it wasn't his vehicle.

    Out of interest, where are you in the highlands? Lived there for quite a while and in some ways I miss it.
