Project Binky - Episode 34 - Austin Mini GT-Four - Turbocharged 4WD Mini

In episode 34 of Project Binky we start the reassembly. But before it gets too exciting, we need some sound deadening, heat management and rust proofing. The painted shell begins to take shape as a car and not just a selection of parts.

    Amazing Build! When is the next episode? My wife hates u guys, coz she ain't seeing me much.. i wished U added the followings; Sunroof, Electric Mirrors, Gp2 style small Wing, mud flaps, Radio with screen (so u can connect to the OBD for engine read outs & maps & Carplay), front small round fog lights since u already have the OEM switch in dash. A middle twin exhaust pipe would be great, with an F1 themed rain light over it as ur rear fog light. Lastly on my dream list, wish u incorporated built in roll cage pipes around the body, no need FIA, only goes around the pillars be-spoke, wrapped in black Suede with ur logo color stitching, and suede over the dash and the door trims... Love u guys best OCD therapeutic rewarding to watch series ever.. can't wait to hear the damp valve wishing..❤️ TC

    Soundproofing is a waste of effort. I did a frame-off restoration of my '71 Mini. Complete sound-deadening treatment, carefully sealed every possible location, installed a binnacle seal panel. Even with the original 1000 cc engine, the car is MONSTROUSLY noisy, even at the relatively low speed of 50 MPH. The Mini was designed in 1959, when the UK national speed limit was 35 MPH.

    I'm so pleased that I've only recently come across this channel. I'm afraid that if I'd found it, 7 YEARS AGO, by now I would have had to get a shotgun and blow my own brains out waiting for them to finish it. It's magnificent and the attention to detail is second to none. I have some understanding of how long these things take; not so long ago I rebuilt a yacht (an ambitious 3 month plan that turned into 6 months and ended up almost full time 18 months later) and I'm currently rebuilding two motorcycles. It's quite astounding how long some of the tiniest jobs can take to get the result you want. Very much looking forward to seeing all the bits bolted back together in (hopefully) the very near future. Well, "near", as in Binky standards.

    NEWSFLASH Archaeologists have unearthed a possible relic of the 21st Century. A spokesperson for the University of Cambridge, which made the discovery, stated "it appears to be some bizarre, partially completed, 300 years old transportation device". A senior metallurgist from the same institution was amazed:- "ferrous finds from this era are relatively rare. We can't understand why, but this particular find seems to have been made of much heavier gauge metal than is usually incorporated into transportation devices of the period, which might account for it's survival. It's a mystery". A cryptic, and partially legible inscription was found attached to the find, which reads "Bin**". Linguists suspect that this represents the word "Binge" from ancient English, which relates to the consumption of fluids. A large teapot was also part of the cache, so it seems likely that the tribe associated with this relic consumed large quantities of tea. Why this device was never completed remains unclear.....
