No need to upload it, anybody can watch it on 4OD (that's if it allows international viewing).

Well it was nice to see the white car on TV and it got a fair showing...but the actual program and reassembly of the green car was pretty awful IMO. It basically amounts to the vandalism of two classic cars each week for no particularly good reason. However good the "teams", doing a rebuild in less than a day against the clock on an unfamiliar car with no instructions/manual is always going to lead to a naff job. Hopefully the cars a re-stripped and rebuilt to a proper standard following the prog before being sold on...

I wont be watching any of the rest of the series.
