I notice the steering column has a bright orange rag tied around it, wonder how bad he hit his

Guys, please put a fuse immediately after the battery connection and before the cable goes off elsewhere in the car, that way you have sort circuit protection at the origin.

My wife doesn’t want me watching you guys anymore. See we take care of her 94 year old mother. She is reduced to her lift chair, so I’ve been working in my head to put a revolving platform so she has more view, you know wiper motor, revolving lazy Susan kind of thing. Then motorizing her walker, nothing too much something like a Tesla motor. You know.

I'm one of those poor people who's only just stumbled into the "Project Binky Party", fashionably late, but so far I'm extremely impressed! As a former Aston Martin electronics and software technician, I was eager to see how the chaps would approach the wiring aspects of the project. Although a good case could be made for using a harness/loom from a later car with CANbus, I can appreciate why they've chosen not to (although I would imagine that a MG-Rover harness from that period would be using the older K-Line type of data bus technology?). Nik is bang-on about soldering and crimping: Although modern production and motorsport harnesses/looms (from the last 40 years or so) use crimping instead of soldering, when done well, a soldered joint can still be perfectly adequate for a road or clubman/track day car. I'm really enjoying the series so far! Keep up the good work! Deano 🤓 Former Aston Martin Test Driver, Major Rectification Technician and EDL/EOL.

I'm binge watching this from the start, and I think testing out a wiring loom while it's all laid out on the floor is the best thing you have done so far - it's like witchcraft!

So saying "Aluminium" (aluminum) is ok but "Soddering" (soldering) isn't? And while I'll agree "trunk" doesn't make much sense, neither does "boot". But what do I know, I'm from the Colonies.

This takes me back. My brother 3 years older than did work on his old Hillman Arrow, shorted it out and melted down the full length of the loom, including stork controls. I re-wired it all for him over two days. It was my first introduction to auto-wiring. I was 14 at the time. The experience taught me not to be afraid of large bundles of wires.

Did anyone notice the LEGS? Maybe I missed something. Like someone missing theirs, or one of you guys have a adverse reaction to the Welding, Soldering, and Paint Fumes, mixed with Grinding Dust, Tea, and whatever you boys Smoke. Maybe the Voltage was what topped it off. Well... Anyway, your back to being... Normal??

Fun fact the bmw 1 series was supposed to be the successor to rover 25, but when bmw and rover parted ways bmw owned the designs and offered to sell them to rover. But rover didn't have enough money so they refused. BMW tweaked the design and released the 1 series.

I'm so impressed with you two I am considering switching from pronouncing Celica as "sel'-i-ka" to "suh-lee'-ker". I'm considering it, but I likely won't because it would make me sound like, as I think you Brits would call it, "a git."

I love the detail about the connectors in the wiring loom. It really tells a story. I remember browsing the VW parts catalog connector pages, and on one page there was a large, round multipin connector that just didn't look like anything I'd seen on a VW. I did an application search, and sure enough... it's for the VW branded version of the Sprinter, it's the connection at the transmission. Nice visible car electronics too. Using an existing harness is a really good way to go IMHO - why reinvent when you can just copy / paste. And, then you can use the wiring diagrams from the other car as well.

Fantastic as always! Does anyone know the brand or a source for a terminal kit like they've got? I can't make it out in the video. Searching has only come up with always out of stock "Sir Tools" folding one, and otherwise I can only find the keyring style ones, and they annoy me.

You guys are great!!! You fabricate everything, including wire and tube routing connectors. You even take the time to use old wiring harnesses!... You are true British craftsmen. The American way is to order $100K worth of brand new components and wiring harnesses, and car components.!! I love how you make and recycle everything. True creativity!!

Sorry, but wires are my thing and you should have used grommets for the holes the cable passes through. You should also learn about splicing tape over so called 'electrical' tape. It comes off clean and doesn't become all gooiy...

Some time ago I looked up 'sodder' and of course there was no such thing. As I've been soldering for over 60 years I believe I have the right to say this. Same with the fashionable term "L.E.D." Anyone who has used these very useful light sources since they became available in the late 60's knows that they have always been called "LEDs" (one syllable) not "L.E.D.s" (three syllables) as the wankers and uneducated call them these days.

There is one guy in finland who makes a master box for car electrics, and you can add slave boxes to it. Fully confgurable, supports allmost every sensor etc etc. It does everything you want and has diagnostic system of its own and you can use android tablet with customizable skins as your dashboard. :) But that is one way to do it and you guys did awesome job with that wiring loom !

Discovered (no, was pointed towards) this project only yesterday and binge-watched it all the way. Was a bit disappointed to realise one or two episodes back that I wasn't going to be seeing the finished product anytime soon :( but it has been very entertaining. Especially the Life of Brian references in early episodes. All the component fabrication has been super impressive - I really enjoy seeing a bracket taking shape and then getting cleaned up and eventually looking like a factory designed and produced part. Well, better than, "obvs", because they are hand made to custom spec and not mass-produced, but you know what I mean. Ever so slightly disappointed though to see all the wiring going in before sending it out for painting. Unless you intend to strip it all back out again, but that seems unnecessarily like making extra work for yourselves. Oh, wait... that's what you do all the time... but still. That would be *really* tearing the ring out of it, since so much of it has been done in permanent mode, like snipping off the cable ties and cinching cable connectors after passing through small bulkhead holes. Talking of which, where are the grommets at said bulkhead holes?
