  • I DID like what I saw and heard, but what I tasted... It was pure horror. I don't even know how you did that.

    • @Eric S. What you say is true but for longevity having to give your dog a bath after it got sprayed by a skunk dead in the face.... That was 7 years ago and I still smell that smell in our clothes dryer. My wife says I am crazy but she also doesn't know how I can taste when she doesn't use the good water instead of tap water to make coffee.

  • I'm nearly done getting through all of your Fiero series, and it has me seriously motivated to get back to work on my own project which I've been neglecting. You've provided a lot of valuable insight for how I'll tackle many of the issues, I'm looking forward to diving into your older stuff once I get to the end of the Fiero content!

  • Yes it's a good thing not to paint the spring red. I have seen too many cars with their brake calipers painted red and it increases the speed of the car to where the driver loses control. LOL You got some good use out of the sand blaster, "I really need one", they are really an indispensable tool for any shop.

  • Hi, fellow tinkerer! MNthe's algorithm just randomly put your video in my queue, and i must say - for a first time view of your work, i like your style! Now, excuse me if i'm wrong, but at 10:15 - 10:16 of your video, when you said "This looks great... it really does!", something really caught my eye. From this frame's angle, look along the top of the throttle body assembly. There are five bolts/screws with six-lobe (thorx) heads, about 20 size(in my region's measurement system, AKA- small). The rear three, middle one. I definitely see a crack (black curved line?) along the housing, exactly where the bolt/screw passes through both pieces.... But it shouldn't be a crack - if it's that visible, you should have noticed it! That's just me! Sorry for the weird expressions - I'm from Bulgaria and my english is a bit rusty! Keep up the good work - your video content is great, and those skills you are accumulating in the process will pay off, big time!

  • The Fiero is coming along quite nicely! I'd definitely do something about the rusty bolts though, leaving them like that is likely only going to give bigger headaches down the line, could cause rust to form quicker on surrounding parts, and it really does stick out like a sore thumb next to everything you've cleaned up. Evapo-Rust seems to be a great option for getting rid of rust very easily, Hand Tool Rescue uses it all the time and seems to work wonders on everything he throws at it.

  • You must write scripts for your videos. You really ought to do some research into passive voice. You use it constantly. It weakens your message and your video. It sounds terrble.

    Jim MJim MЖилийн өмнө
    • Jim M, I appreciate the suggestion, truly. But I really do speak like that. I mumble, stutter, and mush my words together normally, so I very carefully choose my words when speaking so I don’t do that, even with day to day conversation. I guess it just comes out in passive voice, as it isn’t something I consciously chose to do.

      Ronald FingerRonald FingerЖилийн өмнө
    • @Ronald Finger I seriously doubt that you speak in the passive voice. It is much more natural to say that I painted the lower control arm or that I applied anti-seize rather than to saythat the lower control arm was painted or that anti-seize was applied. I like your videos I just think you can strengthen your message by use of the active voice. I used to use the passive voice a lot in my writing. Just passing the suggestion along to you.

      Jim MJim MЖилийн өмнө
    • My only message is to explain what I’m doing on camera. If that is conveyed clearly to people, then using active voice is not superior to passive voice. Im just going to keep writing/speaking how I would normally since that seems to be working out pretty well for me.

  • Don't change anything that you do!!! screw those that say you are not a proper restoration channel. You emulate what most "regular" people do when they tinker on their own vehicles. You (meanimg we) do the best that can be done with the tools available and that is what normally happens in the real world. I have followed you since the beginning of the Fiero project and I envy those that get to marathon all of them from start to finish. I find myself waiting and checking everyday for the newest installment. The Saturday Profjects like this manifold restoration will be perfect fodder to keep this junkie happily waiting for the next video.

  • Congratulations on your recent success... Still,.. I would hope you wouldn't use that as a rationale to restart your infringement of our Saturday Projects™ brand, est. 2009. We appreciated that you did stop for a time, after our initial notice. Now it seems you're back at it. Did your success somehow serve you to think it is now ok to effectively taunt and bully a smaller channel? We're all part of the same creator community. Please stop. You just don't need to do it. Your personal name is 4 1/2 times strong enough of a brand that you don't need to attempt to steal ours.

    • @Saturday Projects, the Discussion Tab existing on my channel is something I truly don't remember. This channel was just an outlet for the videos I enjoyed making, and I didn't really do any more than upload and reply to comments on videos. I did some looking into why I don't have it now and found that when my channel blew up, MNthe automatically replaced the Discussion Tab with the Community Tab. When I started MNthe as my full time job and started paying attention to every aspect of my channel, the Community Tab was already in place and that's all I ever really knew. Hopefully that clears that up. Litigation is not something I want nor something I will put either of us through. I am still going to produce my smaller/supplemental videos, what Saturday Projects is to me, however I won't have your trademark in the title or opening sequence.

      Ronald FingerRonald FingerЖилийн өмнө
    • "...I have never had a public comment section on my channel. That would be the Discussion tab..." This clearly isn't true. See screencapture at: Unlike yourself we DID research our brand name before purchasing the .com and establishing our verified /saturdayprojects brand / channel on MNthe in 2013. Note that MNthe's ever changing infringement policies are in place to protect THEM, not you. I've spent more money at IP firms than I care to think about. Perkins Coie LLP being one of them for a business method / utility patent. It's an expensive education in IP law. Just please take a moment and ask yourself if you want to get that education through research, or through litigation. To be clear, we'll both mostly lose if that is the case because the commodity most lawyers sell is their time. You have an opportunity to build respect and integrity by doing the right thing. You said this is how you categorize a playlist, fine, that use is marginally ok, for now... It's when you use our brand in your titling and credits / branding - yes branding (please look up what this means) on your videos that we're taking issue with. Concerns aside, I really like your channel. Your videos are always high quality and I respect your hard work and diligence. Please respect our IP. I will reach out in the future over noncompliance issues. I do not expect a reply here.

    • Saturday Projects yes, I know that I have that about page. The confusion is not with that. You had said you reached out /through/ the about page, but also that my contact info was deleted, otherwise you would’ve reached out privately. This is where it doesn’t make sense to me. The only way you could have reached out was privately, as I have never had a public comment section on my channel. That would be the Discussion tab, not the About tab. But again, I have never had that feature enabled. So how exactly did you reach out to me that wasn’t private? That’s what I want to understand. Just saying “through the about page” isn’t correct as there is no way to contact someone through there, and is only a place to find contact information to do so. And again, I have never made any information hidden or deleted. And to reiterate, Saturday Projects is a title of a playlist for my channel. It is only a way to classify project videos that don’t make it into a full series. There is no infringement happening. It is not a brand, for me. If you truly wish to keep talking about this, email me. Otherwise this will be the last response I make on here. I really hope you understand.

      Ronald FingerRonald FingerЖилийн өмнө
    • @Ronald Finger At this page: YOUR channel page, you have an "ABOUT" page link where your contact info is. You know this. This is where we sent our prior notice. When we received no response, we went back to that page and all contact info was deleted. We did check that page before starting this comment string and as of then, it was still deleted. We see your business contact email now.... All of this is academic and you're obfuscations are proving my initial points.Please remove all title, tag, etc., trademark infringement instances from your videos and social media.

    • ​@Saturday Projects, I can 100% guarantee that I have not seen any message from you. Forgive me for not understanding, but how exactly did you reach out to me? I'm not sure what you mean by through the About page. I haven't made any contact information of mine hidden for any period of time. I have searched my emails and haven't located anything from you guys. If you have screen captures, I would love to see them, because I really am curious as to why I never received anything. Again, please shoot me an email if you wish to continue talking about this.
