In this installment of our seemingly never ending quest to build one of the world’s fastest Mini’s, we wrestle with the power steering, make a minor adjustment to the flip front mechanism and think about how to get some heating in the car.

In episode 15 of Project Binky, we wrestle with brake lines and fuel lines, make a couple of reasonably nice braces for under the car, argue over P clips and drink a bunch of tea. There’s also a biscuit dunking incident. Hope you enjoy it!
Due to popular demand, we made available for everyone to cut-out-and-keep, the official BOM tyre stick out gauge. Just download the PDF, print it off, cut it out and stick it to the cereal box of your choice. You too can amuse your friends and annoy your enemies with this handy arbiter of tyre stick […]
In episode 14 of Project Binky, we crack on with figuring out the arches, not helped by a faulty part. We come up with a new technology – LRP – and we start to plumb the fuel lines in. There’s most of the usual stuff including tea obviously!
Link Engine Management has just announced its latest addition to the fantastic G4+ range of wire in ECU’s and this one is a doozy. Sitting between the entry level Atom II and the Storm, this 4 cylinder ECU has all the repower capabilities of the Atom, but you can also choose to run some of the […]
Yeah, a zoodie. A zipped hoodie. Aren’t portmanteau words just awesome? Like ‘electrocution’ for example; that’s a combination of electrical and execution first coined in 1889 in the US. To America, we’ve got a lot to be thankful for. Anyway I digress. We’ve had a handful of these lovely zoodies made and they’re cosy and warm whilst […]
Many challenges encountered during the build of Project Binky have been of our own making. Take the electric windows for example; no need for them, utterly ludicrous, incredibly time consuming and difficult. Yet sometimes it’s not a case of need, it’s a case of want… However, some challenges are faced because of what we’re trying […]
As you’re probably aware, we love shiny stuff; new shiny stuff is even better. Basically, we’re a pair of magpies… We’re already looking forward to finishing Binky and starting on series two and for the next series, we’re trying to improve the production values as we’ve learnt a whole hell of a lot over the […]
Over a lifetime of fiddling with cars it’s astonishing how many tools and pieces of equipment you end up with. For example, the little Myford ML7 lathe we use has been with us for over 20 years now! The CNC mill is more than 10 years old and most of the rest of our […]
