    We've had this feature in the system for a while now but has never really been utilised...until now! From time to time hopefully at least once a week, I'll be throwing up video's I find round the traps that I like and hopefully you'll enjoy as well. They will all be automotive related, so if you came here looking for the boobies you'll be sadly let down although I wont be held responsible if there's a pit babe or two in the videos though.... Do me a favour and leave a comment or two so I know I'm not wasting my time. *All credit goes to the original outstanding 'filmographers' and uploaders. **Always Full screen it and turn the sound up!! http://vimeo.com/7895019

Factory 6: Craig Metros

http://vimeo.com/27147559 Bandit Films and Fuel Magazine from Melbourne Australia have joined forces to create Fuel Tank TV, a platform that curates a wide selection of short films from across the world, combined with producing and showcasing our own locally made productions. Craig Metros is a Detroit born car designer, artist and hot rod builder. Craig moved to Melbourne, Australia five years ago on an international work transfer. The first film from new production house Fuel Tank TV begins the 'Factory 6' series by peering through the doors of a workshop deep in the suburbs of Melbourne. Craig is one of a handful of passionate and skillful guys, toiling away the winter nights, creating art and working on a multitude of automotive projects in the same shared space. Craig talks to us about moving from Detroit to Melbourne, what inspires him, and what it's like to build a hot rod that has fulfilled a childhood dream.

Site Updates

Thought I would finally start my own blog and give everyone a bit of an update as to what has been going on with the site of late. Some of you may have been thinking what the hell happened with the upgrade? Why was the site not its usual self? Well the problem lay when I emailed Invision about an enquiry to update the site. Literally minutes after the enquiry was made the site was down and things were happening. Serves me right for leaving the login details for the site in the Invision Customer Portal. During this update Invision deleted all the skin files and anything else that would not work. Great but we should have a backup right? Well Yes. The site is backed up twice a day but several downloads of the backup were corrupt with each backup. Also found out that certain folders were not being backed up. One including the skin / theme folder! Great! Well happy to see the site slowly taking form back to its old self again. Working on it with many long hours put into it. Hope people are getting the enjoyment out of it along with some new features. We have brought back several features including: Photo Gallery
Garage System
TimeSlips
Shoutbox
Ticket System (For Logging Support Tickets)
Donation Tracker - For keeping track of all the donations (Thanks!)
And soon many more things.. Please be patient as I get the forum back to how it was and add new features along the way! All the Best
