Project Binky

Recommended Posts

Another project worth following, this will likely be over and done with in the coming days.

 

This Old Tony is building a chainsaw motor powered go-cart for his kids.

 

2 episodes + an adendum so far:

Good ep. Some nice fab work going on, especially the HVAC unit practically from scratch. Not sure if the cardboard incarnation is more impressive though.

Also good to see the timed work on the bracket (fark, a whole solid day for it) and cameo from Edd China.

A fairly famous car guy/mechanic in the UK.

 

He was on Wheeler Dealers for 13 years, and has built his own projects like world's fastest sofa and various other motorised furniture.

He also made the joined cars with top one steering/bottom one driving controls that were seen on 2 Top Gear episodes.

Caught it a couple of days ago...the only news relating to the next build ep is that there's virtually no chance of it before Christmas so I'd guess it's probably at least a month away.

 

In the meantime I had suggested to me Brian Johnson's channel "Cars that Rock". First video I saw was a blooper reel, actually pretty funny. The channel has him checking out various cars that most people are lucky to even see, let alone drive.

On the subject... a year or 2 ago I actually saw an Aston Martin Lagonda (1976-1990 model) at a small local show. For a while it was the world's most expensive car.

Just welding aluminium is a highly skilled job, let alone complex shapes with multiple pieces in one join.

Heh, I'm not that into cars but my dad would have loved this.  He told me before he was married, he had an original 1960s Beetle which he ripped most of the guts out of and replaced with Porsche gear.

I asked him why he would do that and he said, "because it's fun."

 

The some idiot rear-ended him and tore the car apart.  Fixed on insurance but he said it never quite ran the same again so he sold it.

Gah wiring looms, enough to send you mad, mad I say.

They seem to be doing a pretty good job especially considering the battery, fuse & junction boxes all moved to the middle of the car.

By coincidence, DeBoss Garage also did a bunch of wiring and added a Holley ECU to the LS-swapped Audi a little while ago: (another build series worth watching)
