In honor of Binky and Cardboard Aided Design, here's what was just going on in the FM shop.

That looks like one of those puzzles where you have to figure out how to connect a certain number of dots with only a certain number of lines.

I feel like such a hack after watching these guys work. That's some beautiful work.

You just have to put the bus on a rotisserie in your garage

"PT"? "OPTO"? I admit to being dense. Can someone enlighten me?

Do you mean PTO? It stands for power take off and in North America, farmers use it to describe the spinning shaft that powers equipment but I have heard Europeans use it to describe the shaft that comes out of the transmission to send power to the wheels or differential. I am inspired by these guys. Their work makes me want to tear up some of my work and re-do it better.

Power take-off is also used by Land Roger guys in the UK.

In this case, I suspect it stands for Please Turn Over.

Maybe, but it helps to remember they are professionals - they do this stuff for a living. Plus, they occasionally allude to how each bit represents hours and hours of work condensed into 30-odd minute segments.

It's definitely inspiring and great to watch.

Well, that makes sense. Good call.

"A tidy little bush. Made in Brazil."

This is the best stuff ever. I wish they could do more, but I fear it would be at a sacrifice of quality. 3 month wait is it, I guess.

Took me a trip to the comments to get Please Turn Over.

I think, with the mess of hoses at the pedal box area, I would have come off with one line for the front, one for the rear, then tee'd them farther downstream.

Yeah, but soft lines front to back, its like PEX for your brake lines. I like that.

I just noticed a forum registration for Bad Obsession Motorsport. Hopefully they will post in this thread!

The half hour video format will do that. It makes it look like they pulled all of the design solutions and executions off in the half hour.

Sometimes the elegant result showcased in the video is trial #2 (or more).

I would love to see the scrap pile of design ideas and fab attempts that did not quite work out. I bet they could easily make a video on that theme. Would also like to know how many billable hours have gone into this thing?
