Why this Mini? "It was local; it was available; and it was cheap." Hey, me too! I'm also comically top-heavy, look pretty slinky in a mini (skirt!) and have an unlimited capacity for tea, Milk Chocolate Hobnobs, and funk. Go on. Project Elli. You know you want to, you naughty boys... ;-)

Who owns Binky? Nik and Richard talk as if it's Nik's car, but it's clear that Richard has put in an equal amount of time. The cost of the parts must be dwarfed by the time they have both put in to the project. So I hope the car will be jointly owned at the end.

This is why I enjoy Project Binky. You guys are just doing what you enjoy. You definitely should put a "Built Not Bought" body tag under the hood when done.

Just How Long have you been working on this project!?! At the time I am posting this reply I deduce at least 7+ years. Now with hindsight I realize why many of your viewers ask if Binky will be finished within their lifetimes!!! I am beginning to fear that it will not be within mine! ! Just Saying.

Binge-watched the whole damn series (20 of 'em to date), and my wife is considering a divorce, but as it's likely to be a couple of months before you post another episode, I'll probably be ok-ish... whew! This channel is an amazing testament to lunacy, obsession, talent, and the lack of a home life... Keep it up, guys! Kindly pass along my regards to Rex Hamilton (as Abraham Lincoln). His contribution to the series has been incalculable, though Richard is welcome to attempt the math on that one! Eschew Sanity, chaps. Carry on!

One question, that st185 at 1:20 is that the one you chopped? Because the one in the trailer had no rear damage at all but color and model match and that one had a gray replacement trunk lid that has no gt-four badge and the fart cans and even rims look identical. So did the rearend happen after you made the decision to use it and shot the trailer and it luckily didn't destroy the parts you needed and you swapped the trunk lid before the crash but after the video to the one with matching color and the badge or did you somehow restore the damage before the trailer (what's hard to believe and makes no sense considering the still destroyed paint and the shell damage... and it's rotten overall state...)? The more I think about it the less I can fiure out how that comes together^^ I'm curious... because they really look like the same car but the chronological part is just weird.

I just finished the entire series (15 episodes) of "Binky". Nicks fabrication skills is fantastic (MacGyver would take lessons) but I feel blocking those drains is something you'll regret later. The references to Police Squad, Red Dwarf, Hitchhikers Guide(?), etc... was hilarious. ;-D Watching this reminded me of two expressions "Enough is not enough, too much is Just right" and "Ultimate Cuteness", ie: Hemi in a VW van. ;-)

Have you ever thought of fixing the GT4 and whacking a V12 into it? AWD would be nice. You're doing a great job as ambassadors of straight-faced humour, Commonwealth style, I think the American viewers are starting to get it. As for Binky, well you fellas are doing things in a way that no others do, FIpost is literally littered with car customisation in varying degrees, but it's just fascinating to watch the way you give such enormous structural integrity with nothing but folded sections of - what is it, 0.9 mm? - mild steel sheet. Not to mention I nearly piss myself laughing sometimes. I reckon if I won lotto I would pay you both handsomely to do the V12 project next, and even pay extra to let me be your workshop whipping boy.

Hey Guys, Love your project in a way I can't explain in words. I would love, no, I want a DVD of this whole series. Across the pond, here in Canada, the Mini has been "extinct" since 1980! We few "Miniacs" still drive these "wretched" little bundles of joy on our warm months which totals to about 6-7 months! You two should be "Knighted" for this incredible job. I'll give a call to the Queen, I have contacts...what I'm Canadian...we're still "a Commonwealth", she should be available to hear me out!

I always wondered just what the phrase "mad as a fish" meant. after watching your Project Binky through episode 11 nonstop last night, I think I now have the meaning down. Not sure if it's you lot or this colonial, but I can't wait for episode 12 and onwards. My favorite part? at 21:12 of episode 7..bloody marvelous. Now that Top Gear has rusted away, I now have a new favorite "show" to watch. And by far more entertaining. Keep calm and carry on, mates! Dan in Colorado

An interesting side-note to this is that while my first car was a Mini (could say my first one & a half cars were Minis , as the 1310cc Mk1 Cooper S engine & mechanicals, including front & rear brakes were transplanted into a 1974 Mini Clubman S body, which was then heavily modified), my current vehicles are all Gen2 SWB Pajeros from the '90s (unfortunately find low vehicles not so easy to get in or out of these days), & several yrs ago as I was watching the highly specialised 'Mini' race vehicles win the Dakar Rally prompted me to find out the specs of what to me looked too bloated to be called mini! Not surprisingly they were built by the same specialist engineering firm that built BMW's X5 racing vehicles for the preceding Dakar Rallies 2-3yrs before, but not only that, essentially these race vehicles are the basically the same with the exception of length & the few odd parts like windscreens, lights, grille & some trim-pieces sourced from each respective road-going namesake. They share similar space-frame construction, highly modified performance engines, transmissions, running-gear, & expensive rally-gear, just with different carbon-fibre panels! The curious fact though, is that those racing 'Minis' were larger (in all dimensions) & heavier than either of the Gen1 or Gen2 Mitsubishi Pajero which were outright winners of the Dakar Rally 8 times in the past!

(Silly question) You've been (for what I understand) mainly working or basically only working on the MINI, how do you "earn" or "sustain" yourselves. Well I'm asking because basically I can't afford to invest so much time into such project because neither it would take me too long (having to post-pond it to keep doing "work") or the emphasis in such project would leave me with no time-work-money to sustain myself. Thanks, cheers and as always keep doing the great work.

Cheers from Canada. Just discovered your series on Binky. That resulted in a binge watch. As a retired 'shop' teacher, you guys are living my dream. Always had a soft spot for the Mini - My first car (back in '67) was a '61 with a '65 850 engine. I got it from a mechanic who had a Cooper S Race Car. Spent many a day learning at his place and enjoyed that the late 60's muscle car group that congregated at the local burger joint was afraid of an Austin 1100 with that race engine installed. Too bad that , with all the well known rust spots on a Mini, that design upgrades didn't evolve. Carry on Lads ...Looking forward to the next episode.
