In episode 17 of Project Binky, we get down and dirty with finishing off the custom HVAC unit for the Mini. It's a long and involved process that took far more time than we possibly imagined, but now it's done we move on to fix some other drawbacks of the mini in modern day motoring.

Jason Campbell yes I am dreaming of a garage. Illl settle for something small as long as I can work in it. Working in the driveway is less than ideal

Reinout + so your dreaming about a garage? 40-80? That's feet not meters but the meter version sounds nice too, seriously the meter version sounds ridiculously awesome.

I feel like the glove compartment should just be large enough for some important car documents (not sure what is needed in the UK) and no bigger. Can’t need to be more than a couple mil deep.

22:45 - Noooo! I hate it when that happens! It's like the moment at a gig when the singer's just about to deliver the greatest vocal line in rock history which will have 75,000 fans punching the air and thinking 'Yes!'... And then he points the microphone at the crowd and says, "You all know this one; YOU sing it." What? Totally ruins the gig, life, the universe and everything. I always go on a murderous post-gig rampage after a disappointment like that. Millions die. Brews are made and choccy Hobnobs are consumed until the red mist clears and the pain goes away. Now, you skiving bar steward, repeat after me: "Make the NOI-I-I-ISE..." :-)

After watching the series, I estimate about 8,200 hours of, at $35 an hour the labor is about $180,000. Parts/materials/outsourced work another $40,000. Binky is $220,000 car🤯

Great system, where will the AC coil condensate drain to? Will it be piped away in final installation? Catch container?

Error! You do use both aircon and heater at the same time.... that's how you demist quicker! Dry warm air works faster, the aircon dries and the heater warms the air...

No, I get it. AC is mandatory. What would be the point of making a cool car if you can only use it when the sun isn't shining?

Why wouldn't you just draw air from inside the cabin. This is more efficient and saves alot of work.

I have questions... Do you guys not have access to vintage air in the uk? In the us vintage air makes hvac kits that are of good quality and not expensive. Car builders and engine swappers swear by them.

If I read the gauge correctly did he pressure test the evap to about 2 bar or 30psi? Would have been better to up it to 100 psi to be sure. Ask me how I know this. Once bitten twice shy.

I love these videos, and your fabrication skills are amazing- I've learned a lot! However, I'm perplexed by your drill press! The spindle/chuck is running way out of true! How can you tolerate this, and why do you not fix it? That would drive me f'n nuts!

Sixty years from now, somebody is going to find this thing in a barn, open the good and have absolutely no idea what the blazes is going on with that mini. Either that or it will be the last surviving "intact" mini, and somehow car historians will conclude that all minis were like that.

Drawing your air from inside the passenger compartment, would increase the efficiency of the HVAC system, ie. recirculate the pass. comp. air.

I am a bit late to the party and I have no time to read all 2300 + comments on this lovely masterpiece. I must say I am glad that you dropped the Duck, (Which I named "Dr, D" as he is a Quack) and went with the steel. The duck eats much more than the steel and is much more bother to clean up after.

I'm just wondering if you considered using a tiny car like a 'smart fortwo' or something as a donor for things like heaters and AC? Not trying to criticize I just want to know if that could be a good option as well since I'm now inspired to do my own mini build. I've had 2 heater cores bust on me in subarus and I don't know if I'd trust myself to build one if even manufacturer made ones can bust just from a bit of snow.
Marlo Breding
Marlo Breding Vuosi sitten
You said "you would never run both heater and AC at the same time." Wrong in winter to defrost windows the air is dried by running the AC and collecting excess moisture on the evaporator core and the reason you added a weep hole at the bottom of the case.

They may want to consider adding some insolation to the AC lines running from the bulkhead to the core to prevent condensation.

I'm a year late to this. Binge watching while off work with a rib injury. My daily tea consumption has doubled and I'm oddly aware of certain blokes being overdue for a haircut. Top stuff guys, really entertaining and great to see how fabrication is done with care , precision and passion. Find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life.

Hey guys, that was epic...I have a Triumph GT6 that I am currently I am still a far cry from interior work, I have not given it much thought...until now...I would love to put in AC and now the gears are loving the build...keep it up!! Happy Rebellion Day from the Colonies.

Use rope instead of wire when putting screen in next time and it not snap, also if you pull it at more angle it will make it a lot easy to install 😁👍

Bit late to the party, but some Ford models (KA, Transit) also use electronic solenoid valves for their heater matrix valves - maybe of use if you were to have trouble with yours.

This is for YoutTube, what Breaking Bad and The Wire was for TV. I am so impressed and thankful for hours of stellar entertainment. I am also glad I found it at a place in time, where I was able to binge watch it. I am a DIY buff myself, but the amount of quality work you put into that mini is absolutely astounding. Loved every minute of it so far.
