In episode 13 of Project Binky, the Mini gets a new fuel tank, we finish off the parcel shelf, complete the firewall and take a look at the wheel situation. There’s homemade contraptions, MIG welding, TIG welding and a shed load of grinding action! And tea, lots of tea.

The quest to build one of the world’s fastest Mini’s continues… In episode 11 of Project Binky, we grapple with bumpsteer and Ackermann angles, we wrestle with the gear-shift mechanism, sort out the passenger seat and fit the handbrake. And we drink tea of course.
