In episode 23 of Project Binky we fix a hole in the sump, modify a radiator, finish a lot of the wiring and make a bracket with brackets for the interior light and dashcam. We test the electrical circuits, and there's some shenanigans in our Subaru for good measure.

This is the best car revamp tuning saga i have ever seen bar non...... Love that switch panel, the wiring loom, Battery and fuse box lay out.... I have you Guys on my Facebook site, and give you top publicity world wide. Just keep that saga build going for as long as you can, and make the Binky mini project, an example in rebuild perfection and engineering.......🐦 🐦 🐦

Seen the whole series umpteen times but still have 3 questions from this episode. 1 Why use panel bond not weld it? 2 On the switch panel what is the star switch for? 3 The biggest question, you said no front more wiring but I see a front fog light switch, is there a goal post move due again lol

I buy old dirt bikes and fix 'em up, most have 5 wires at the most, I'd go insane trying to wire Binky. I don't know how you chaps do it.

At 22:19 there is a pinhole leak in the bottom right hand corner from the bottom of the middle weld. You can see the water droplet run out when the pressure is applied.

Well your Obsession has made me addicted to your channel. I came here by watching 'Sarah-n-Tuned' channel, where there was "RacerX" fabrication items featured, by luck FIpost algorithm pointed me to your episode 32 three days ago. Now I have reached this episode from episode 1. Its much better than watching Hollywood's stupidity. I appreciate the time, effort & dedication to this British iconic car the Mini. Keep it up.

The best line in this video has to be at 2:26. "The two purple ones are from the original Citreon setup. If you're watching in black and white, the purple relays are between the green and yellow ones.". Almost pissed my pants laughing at this one.

It is killing me a little bit to watch all the cutting of the cable ties without pulling on the tails before cutting... sticking your hand in an area full of cut ties with little devil spikes sucks.

Umpteenth watch and only just noticed that you have a superfluous switch on that panel. No front fogs fitted, but a switch for them? Future proofing again, or an oversight? Spoiler alert! Bare in mind whilst writing, Binky is away for paint.

I’ve just found this. Why the GT4’s engine and drivetrain? Unless fully forged there are better engines and platforms you could have used. What’s the goal of the car? Adding all that weight is unfortunate. I would bet it’s still no quicker than a properly sorted turbo a-series

Finally catching up with everyone else and obsessing over Project Binky. I must say, I am absolutely flabbergasted that you actually used zip ties to mount that fan to the radiator. I thought for sure I was in for a week long bracket fabrication for that one. Keep up the great work gents!

@Bad Obsession Motorsport 😂😂😂 I just saw the next episode! Knew he couldn't leave it at that. I wasn't disappointed. Thanks for responding. I feel quite honored. I had heard of Binky for a couple years, but knew the series would consume me. Finally started watching the channel with the advent of Escargot. Now it has of course been a mad binge. Funny that the cargo van is what got me. Thanks for everything!

If you want to avoid cutting yourself on zip ties, pick up a set of flush cut wire cutters. As the name implies, they can cut a zip tie and leave the sharp edge flush with the body of the zip tie. For extra not-sharpness, cut across the width of the zip tie.

The hardware that holds the windage tray would be a good place for some safety wire porn. I just love the look of safety wired hardware. Plus, if one wiggles loose, it could be dicked.

I've only just been introduced to this channel, and have binged-watched all of the episodes (in colour) up to the latest. I can only add to the echo-chamber of admiration and applause for what you are doing, and how you're doing it. There are only two words to describe the project, channel and you two oily-fingered geniuses... 'captive nuts'.
