- Project Binky
they say it’s nearly there…but it’s got to all come apart to get prepped, painted, do something with the interior…and I really hope they do something special with the engine and drivetrain and not put that rusty lump back in…some nice fabricated suspension parts, fancy adjustable suspension, engine strip down and rebuild with some fancy pistons, con rods, cylinder head mods and the like. Will be really disappointed if they do nothing more than give it a jet wash and bolt it back in. Looking forward to the finished article though.Posted 6 months agotillydogSubscriber
I thought they’d said (very) early on that the engine that’s in there is a scrapper, just for fabrication purposes?
they really could do with a cnc plasma cutter.
I don’t think Matt Urch’s channel (Urchfab) has been quite as interesting since he got the CNC cutter – Pretty brackets, etc. but a bit dull to just see them appear without any manual dexterity.Posted 6 months agoneilnevillMember
I’m getting bored of it now. Completely respect the detail and effort going into the work, but the episodes are a lot less captivating lately. The wiring ones were tedious and the non wiring stuff has been bracket, bracket, bracket. The washer bottle was perhaps a highlight. I think for good viewing the last 4-6 episodes should have been done in 2. As I said though, the work they do is great, I am just at my bracket viewing limit.Posted 3 months ago
Truly insane levels of detail going into this. Really can’t wait to see this finished! (As long as they do a new project)
Next project is an MG SV, we’ll they’ve got the body/shell.
It’s not really an MG it was De Tomaso and then a Qvale in the 90s and finally a near broke MG bought the design and stuck the same Ford V8 they put in the 75 for a bit in 2003. Anyway it’s a mongrel of a thing which were made in tiny numbers so it’s going to be really interesting what they make of it.Posted 3 months ago
After all these years just seeing the arch extensions in black instead of yellow is a bit of a shock to the system.
I watched a couple of old ones recently, Ep1 “however many months its takes” 6 years later ha ha. I’ve just been watching Star Wars with my daughter who’s younger than Binky.Posted 3 weeks ago
I’d bet a Q plate too, it’s going to be hard to prove originality with a 6 year long build diary proving the original parts of the car are pretty much the roof and B and C-pillar (I think).
I’m not sure if they’re engine builders, I hope they do as I love watching engine builds, but really and obviously I’ll be proven very wrong, but once the body is back, there’s a vid or two of refreshing or replacing the drive-train and engine and the final build and it’s onto the ‘MG’.
Like a Human on Mars, I hope to see it finished in my lifetime.Posted 3 weeks ago
