How it's Made: Icon FJ

My partner and I tend to watch a decent amount of How it's Made when we're in bed. It helps her fall asleep almost instantly, and I wind up staying up at least until the show is over because the production of seemingly simple things fascinates me.
At any rate, the other night they did one about "Sport Utility Vehicles". Interestingly enough, they chose to document the creation of an Icon FJ.
Pretty awesome watching it be built from the ground up. It isn't quite as good as the episode they did on the Morgan 3-Wheeler, but it's still fun (The Morgan was in the spin-off How it's Made: Dream Cars series that was exclusively about cars, while the Icon was on the primary run of the show).
Anyway, here's the video.
And just in case you were curious, the Icon FJ starts at $190,000...

@smugaardvark 250 hours to build seems pretty reasonable, always figured icons were more "handbuilt" then shown
