Hi Folks, Well, we've been doing the Delboy's Garage Videos for 5yrs now, yep, half a decade already! We truly never believed the show would find such a huge audience, last so long or become such a huge part of our lives. Your amazing support changed everything and motivated us to just keep going. You’re always hungry for more, and we deliver as much as we can in the time between our 'day' jobs!

I reckon we all agree that we don't upload as often as you would like. Not nearly.

So what’s the hold up? It's the 'Day jobs'.

As much as we’d like them to, Delboy's Garage videos don't pay the bills. We have funded this entirely ourselves from the beginning, and deliberated many sleepless nights over whether it's all worth it when we find we can't afford the things we need, such better equipment and materials. It’s also always hard to read through pages of e-mails asking when the next video is, 'when will a build be finished' and 'what's coming next' when so much of our time is dedicated to the 'back door' admin... It has also been disappointing that we’ve done this for five years, built up credibility and a loyal viewer base, and still cannot secure any sponsorship from the parts companies we have supported.

When not filming, we're editing, answering comments, and replying to questions, (and with 72,000 of you now, that's a full time job)..which is the other problem...'time'..! We've always been happy to spend our free time at this...in fact..ALL of our free time...but as the channel has grown, so has the time required to run it, meaning, that our spare time is just not enough any more, we now need to dedicate real time to the channel for it to keep growing and bringing you the cool videos you enjoy, and with the right financial support to free up some work time, we can achieve this.

To be honest, we’ve now reached a point where the show needs to make some self sufficient money or the workload will roll back over us. As we get bigger, it's now harder to dedicate the necessary time to produce new content, so you could say, the 'tail is now wagging the dog'.

We want to be clear here, we're not looking to live off this, just be able to dedicate two days a week, to make the channel realise it's natural potential, spend a little less time worrying over the bills, and more time making quality content for you to enjoy, maintain your bikes and save you money.

So, simply put, if we have helped you, in any way, or just provided entertainment that you've enjoyed, and want to continue enjoying, then becoming a 'patron' of the Channel is a great way for you to help us in return. Every dollar you feed into our Patreon account, means you get new Delboy's Garage videos to watch, and more often.

Patreon is way better than other crowd funding platforms, as with Patreon, you become an 'investor'...a part of the DBG team. You'll help turn a 'time expensive' hobby into something very special... Thank You.

With the last 18 months growth we can now see the future of the channel and what it will take to achieve it,  and that will be to some day take the garage to a commercial premises and make a place our Patrons can come to visit us any time, hang out and watch videos being made behind the scenes. and best of all, get to know us better than just on a screen, and maybe even feature in the video too.
