Thanks for posting the new video!
I can't findo the link, but, YouTube channel "Crossthreaded" did a podcast with Nik and Rich about a month ago. In the podcast Nik explained a lot on their building and filming process. Binky is mostly an evening and weekend project for them and when people ask them about the project it's mostly the minute details that people want to know about. All of this equals time and drastically increases the wait between videos. Nik also mentioned that some of the delay for episode 16 is because they had to rethink and reengineer a few areas of the car, most notably the flip front hood.
Yeah, I'd imagine that flip nose is tricky to get right. There are a million ways to do it poorly, but few to do it right. These guys do it right.

My guess is it had to do with the lower front crossmember that the radiator(s) sat on and the flip front hinged on. I just rewatched episode 15 and when Nik was fabbing the forward engine mount I think there was some flex in that lower rail. I predict the changes center around making that area a bit more structural.
I kept popping in to this thread to see some progress only to find videos that are not progress.

7.5 hrs on a bracket? Dear god. I mean, it looks gorgeous, but they could have done the same with some uni-strut and fender washers in about 30 min.

I'm a pigeon playing chess.
When I get a day off, and I want to build something, it usually start with an hour of "oh my god I don't even want to think about how messy the garage is" followed by "it's too hot anyway" followed by doing some other chores, and then finally going out and reorganizing my sockets.
I listen to 7.5 hours of podcasts, but I don't have a bracket at the end.
This is awesome. I'm watching this whole build at work today. nothing like the sound of grinding in welding in the background while you do research
