The intro to the video explains why there was such a long time between finishing the shell and actually getting paint on it. Even so, they admit that even after it was "finished", Nick continued to fettle it.

I know that Binky is not their only project. One of their other and even weirder projects is to convert a old bookmobile into a camper/car carrier. Of course the entire drive train and suspension are coming from a completely different vehicle.

The Escargot Episode 1

Also "of course", the episode delivery is sporadic.

Hahahaha. They do certainly take their time. The amount of work that has gone into Binky is simply amazing. There's a bespoke bracket for everything!

Yep. Sure is purdy!
I like the bolt-on dolly
wheels for moving the shell around.
