Thanks, Chris - but why the hell did he fit the old, holed exhaust back on - especially when he had a better one???!!!  :wacko:

 

His levels of mechanical incompetence seem to have reached a new low lately, even for our HubNut! 

 

He bumbles and fumbles around his old bangers with a whole new bumbling, fumblingness! 

 

It's so 'HubNut'  :nod: ...It just wouldn't be the same if he did it right would it?  :lol:

 

Keep 'em coming though, Chris - it is pure entertainment  :)

 

Quite right Kev, surely it would have been better (and quicker) to re-fit the better manifold once he'd realized his mistake rather than 'bodge' something else and then fit the wings again!  :banghead:

And even more so having gone to the expense of a new coil unit!! :huh:

NubHut 'fixes' his bangers like I used to when I wuz an impecunious 18 year-old student without a pot to piddle in!

 

Surely Ian has enough spare wedge these days to buy some new parts for the 'tin snail' ??!!

Thank you, Chris!!!  :rolleyes:

 

I wuz thunking...seeing Ian with a socket wrench in his hand made me think of a gorilla with a machine gun!!!   :giggle:

 

At the end of the 2nd video he said, "It's definitely the time to call it quits I fink" ... Never has a statement been more profound!   :bored:

 

He's such a nice chap though - he should stick to driving and reviewing  :nod:

Aye Kev, it certainly sums up 'ham fisted' doesn't seem to have any forward planning skills either. Still, he is entertaining in his unique way.

So true Kev....When I was younger 'bodging' something, eventually made me soon realise its better to fix it properly first-time!..... :frantic:

Indeed, Steve  :thumbsup: 

 

I always warm to people who can laugh at themselves and just be authentic without any BS. It also makes us feel a little better ourselves knowing that we are not always surrounded by perfect types  :) 

 

I must add though, after he mentioned the "home schooling" for his adopted children - let's hope that today's science subject wasn't A Beginner's Guide To Basic Automotive Engineering  :giggle:

Thank you for posting, Chris.

 

I'm sure you will agree that those two clips were undoubtedly the worst HubNut bodgery we have ever seen! (So far). I kept on thinking of Frank Spencer throughout the clips!!  :lol:

 

I am still not sure whether this is all pure theatre, or actual, real-life, HubNut shenanigans! If it is for real, I am also beginning to doubt his previous 'nice guy' demeanour in favour of a rather frustrated, bad-tempered fellow, possibly borne of personal insecurities and mechanical incompetence! 

 

I really hope I am wrong, but I sense that his lady friend and the "boy" suffer a degree of verbal abuse when he goes back indoors after a session in that cold, miserable, desperately untidy garage. It's the "shut up!" and the edgy atmosphere, even on camera, that make me think this way  :sad:

 

sooo wish he would stick to road testing - he is really good at that  :nod:

 

But really, really bad at DIY car 'repairs'  :cry:

 

Actually, being serious now, he mentioned that people might unsubscribe after watching those clips.

 

He is clearly conscious of that possibility.

 

It would be a great pity.

 

He needs to take stock.

 Couldn't agree more Kev....

 

While I understand the whole 'banger-nomics' idea he puts forward, ...I don't see why he needs just so many 'heaps of crap' in his life!

(Yes we've all had a heap or two in our motoring careers!)

 

Surely 2 or 3 'slight less heaps of crap' would be better seen as his family has suddenly expanded!

 

And while it's entertaining in a way of misery, as you say the increased swearing , and innuendo don't add anything to his channel.

 

He always seemed an amiable/bumbling but likeable fellow .....up to now!

 

'Miss Hubnut' may live to rue joining the channel!

 

Time will tell....
