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.

I always avoided bringing up the fact that if you look up the history of aluminum and in to the English gentleman who discovered it you will find he named it aluminum despite all the other people trying to change the name to aluminium .

with all respect do you know why they always put the fuel tank under the car not in front or the back of car safety imagine that car get hit in the back what will happen that's why many years ago jeep company recalled many models of there car because everytime Accident happen the car catch on fire and people die so I think should be under the car by the way love the videos keep up

29:13 this is not safe ! even if same rim material is used (and it isn't) the stiffness of the original rim according to the fabrication tech. now you added different properties material and also welding ! with shocks, temperature water and moisture .. I think this isn't safe at all

Just a quick one for if you ever test a fuel tank or other tanks, do not do a pneumatic test on but instead do a hydraulic test on it. It’s the safer way of doing it. I’m a pressure survey for an insurance company so hopefully I know what I am talking about. Other than that top work.

There is no "i" after the "n" in aluminum. Americans use the original and correct pronunciation. The tosser who named it changed things up later to make it sound more like the rest of the elements.

Bit surprised that you guys didn't think about scrapping the whole idea of actually having a usable backseat before replacing the seat-back, then it would've been possible to make room in the boot for a tank & spare! Put your luggage in behind front seats like I used to, mainly because I had twin-tanks & a really wide spare!

Just a quick fuel tank tip. If you dump out all the fuel you can there's obviously still vapors and a bit of nonsense left. But if you let a car warm up to operating temperature and stick the tailpipe into a hole in the tank for about 10 minutes. It'll flash off the remaining fuel and replace the flammable vapors with non-flammable ones so you can cut and weld it with a pretty reasonable degree of safety. I know I'm a year late but yeah.

What vehicle is the window wiper motor from. I pulled one off a 1991 nissan pickup. Tried using a 12v dc adapter for a old computer but the motor freezes when to much pressure is applied. Any suggestions. I'm sure it's not your specialty but I love the way you think outside of the box.

Old news now, but why plug weld the baffles? They are not structural. Surely just a TIG tack inside would suffice - and have the added advantage of keeping shine on these big sheets!

You could upwardly displace the air in the fuel tank with welding shielding gas and then grind the neck off with gay abandon.

I love all your references, because your sense of humour clearly matches my own. Lots of the things I say are from Blackadder and Red Dwarf, too, and I instantly knew I'd love this series when I found it like a week ago when I heard the theme music and recognised it as that of Sam and Max - heck even the driving looks similar :D

Q: Does the racing/rally series you plan on using this car for NOT require an internal bladder in your custom tank? Or, is the firewall between the driver's compartment and the rear tank area sufficient enough. If an internal bladder was required, how would you have fabricated it -- or would it have been outsourced?
