During this project, I have spend quite some time on-line searching for parts and information. I found a whole lot of garbage and mis-information, but I also found some very good websites with solid and usable information and good places for those hard to find parts.

To make it a bit easier for you guys and save you some searching, I listed a few of these websites on this page.

Project Binky! (Bad Obsession Motorsport): http://www.badobsessionmotorsport.co.uk/

A motorsport company from the UK. Not directly relevant to the project, but something I just didn't want to withhold from you guys. These guys have embarked on a absolutely brilliant project to merge the engine and running gear from a Toyota Celica GT4 with a old Austin Mini. And they do that with incredible skill, style and a good dose of British humor.

So grab a drink, sit back and watch their video blog on their great project. If you are anything like me, you'll become a fan of the project before you know it!
