Now I have a smartphone I get a reminder - including this one on April 1st

"How to Fix a Porcelain Mug with a TIG Welder"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKWfW-MIRHc

Just noticed some of theirs are over a half million views now...

Someone I've watched a few from - serious guy and serious presentation - is "weldingtipsandtricks".  Look at 4:50 for sectioned and etched examples.

Hi All

Episode 16 is now available, interesting to see how long it takes to make the 'simple' bracket for the steering pump to be mounted....

Yes,    No wonder the project is taking so long, but I wish I'd had their skill sets when I was younger.

They're back - and the heater and aircon unit took 200hrs...

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHvBHWBzzB7NyU5tIiEZHBg

Looked back and the first video was August 2013.

On facebook I liked the comment "When I was an apprentice mechanic I got fed up with the prices paint and panel shops charged. So I did an evening course on how to do it myself. Ever since then I have paid the money."

Peter has project Binky finished? It's not that long ago I watched it and I thought there were still 2 or 3 episodes to run.

Hi Brian

No, still going however looks like they are trying hard to get it completed as the most recent episodes have come relatively quickly after each other.

Escargot is their car transporter/camper project.

Binky has gone for paint and they're smartening up the running gear.

With a spot of the man flu I enjoyed a day binge watching this build.  He had a HIGHLY modified E55 (active rear wing, rocker arm suspension in the boot, turbos in the boot to supplement the supercharger...) which went pop, having rebuilt the engine he built a better car to put it in to be cheaper on tyres and brakes and to be easier to work on.  Tube frame, makes his own suspension, cut and shut job on uprights, fits the electrically adjustable steering and gets the peddles going back and forth, pneumatic gear change off his own ecu, fits engine management, strips the supercharger and makes manifolds for "just" turbos.  Does proper sums for crumple zone, "not very good at CFD" so make a wind tunnel to test a model (that's about 45 seconds of the ten hours).  Carbon undertray, having done tests slops the resin on with a paint brush to get it done on time.

Here's a summary of what he got done IN ONE YEAR:

Five years back, I think in Pakistan:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqMU3OczjmM

8:30 for the crash and cops.  Am half expecting Clarkeson to be doing the voice over and doing his very sorry face.  Somewhere I think it says only two months for that design and build...

He combines chop-shop confidence with pukka graduate engineer smarts and HUGE energy.  As he didn't get finished before the snows (Canada) he hauled it to California for some track days behind his broken road car (been busy on the racer...) which I worked out is about the distance from here to Istanbul.

It's a different world, no tax, no insurance, no type approval but the police let him off after crashing into another vehicle. The self build car C2 is a bit agricultural compared with Project Binky but a good still fascinating. I suspect Colin Chapman would have wanted to "add lightness".

Quite different objectives to Binky, but amazing work.  Building the frame without a jig was impressive.  All within a standard double garage... 

There's a Binky interview with them being relatively sensible answering questions.  The design for the heating and ventilation (and aircon!) was the one that got the dark haired one to raise his eyebrows when he saw the "cardboard octopus" or whatever.  That flip front over such a tight packed engine bay, with a normal bonnet as well, with a remote control to flip it and the ability to lift it off.  Bonkers how the spec went up and up. 

I like the effort to make the bulkhead look like a factory pressing.  The flexishaft drive over the top of the engine is the one bit that looks odd vs a production car.
