Apart from building the engine itself?

This next episode is going to be interesting on two fronts: what the issues are and then how they are addressed!

I did realise after Richard installed the boot light that we have not seen the courtesy light for the inside yet!

No suggestion what instruments they are going to use either. I could imagine them using an alloy version of a Mini radiator for the a/c condenser, in the left wheel-arch as original. Very important maintaining maximum originality.

It just dawned on me, If they were to build a charge cooler with a second evaporator and expansion valve linked to the a/c in the same way as newer cars with dual a/c, the Corsa rad could be turned into a condenser. the only down side is it wont do any cooling unless the a/c is switched on but then again is it needed if it not hot enough for a/c. All that is then required is a fan to get air moving. over the condenser and rad.

Well, now that Ep 23 is out, they have very little building to do before the engine becomes unavoidable. Front and rear screen washer bottles, final wheel arches, instruments, a/c condenser, exhaust manifold to dump pipe, intercooler feeds - that could cover Ep 24 And then it's the engine....

And don’t forget we lost the nested charge cooler from episode 7, so there is that to sort now too.

Nik and Rick tell us that hey have some projects in the pipeline, and then do a vid showing the start of rebuilding their 6 litre classic Ford. So have they given up on Binky?

I Don’t think for one minute that they have given up no - didn’t they say something about waiting for some bits to arrive?
