    Sincerely I don't understand, 117 views not a single comment, maybe you gays are watching all the chapters before you comment, no clue..

    This to me represent automotive passion at his purest form, the guys are not only insane but extreme skillful and to complete it all with very simple tools, supplies, Fuck when you know, you Know, I have pretty much the same tools and I can only make wimpy brackets and a lot of smoke.

    Plus the sense of humor is so dry, cheesy and simple it makes my heart really warm..

    I've been watching Project Binky for a couple of years now - makes you want to go out and buy a welder (and learn how to use it better). I'm a huge fan and I'm anxiously awaiting a new episode.

    It is good.
    the sense of humour really makes it, nothing like British humour and these guys have it.
    It is a loooong drawn out project though

    As for tools and equipment - mmmm, not sure it is simple and basic, they have made some wicked tools

    I eagerly await each installment. What's not to love? Awesome fabrication, British humour, and the occaisonal Diskworld reference. You guys DO know who/what Binky is named after, right?

    from Wikipedia:

    Discworld is a comic fantasy book series written by the English author Terry Pratchett (1948–2015), set on the fictional Discworld, a flat disc balanced on the backs of four elephants which in turn stand on the back of a giant turtle, Great A'Tuin. The books frequently parody or take inspiration from J. R. R. Tolkien, Robert E. Howard, H. P. Lovecraft, Charles Dickens, and William Shakespeare, as well as mythology, folklore and fairy tales, often using them for satirical parallels with current cultural, political and scientific issues. The series is popular, with more than 80 million books sold in 37 languages.

    Like all other words, the Discworld has a Death, who rides a pale horse. The horses name is Binky.

    There have been other Discworld characters mentioned in the videos, including Rincewind (a wizard).

    Yes, Death, and his Granddaughter Susan, who fills in for him when he's on holiday. Pratchett is my favorite author, well, one of them anyway.

    I've worked on a lot of Mini's, but not much on the body side, although I've fitted a couple of sills and floors in the larger 1800 (Landcrab). Issigonis built strong cars, pity they rusted to bits.
