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!
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!
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.
In episode 12 of Project Binky, we get to grips with the exhaust after finishing off a lot of the bits left earlier on in the build. The quest to build one of the world’s fastest Minis continues…
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.
The quest to build one of the world’s fastest Mini’s continues… In episode 10 of Project Binky, we mainly concentrate on getting the controls sorted. There’s pedal box and steering action along with a fight with some major bump steer.
In episode 9, Nik gets a haircut, Richard has twins and the shell finally gets completed. More or less.
In Episode 8, we get a pair of nice doors, Nik gets annoyed with the boot lid and we both flip out over the front end panel work.
In episode 7 of Project Binky, the Mini gets most of the chassis fabrication completed, the radiator gets sorted and the car gets electric windows and central locking. Oh, and Nik has a birthday party. The quest to build one of the world’s fastest Mini’s continues….
