Vauxhall-powered Turbo Mini

XE-Mini

Can’t wait for your Project Binky fix? Well it’s not the only Mini build out there! A talented chap emailed me his build at the start of the year, and I’ve only just had a chance to have a proper read of it, and boy am I feeling stupid for waiting so long! The car […]

1962 Ford Falcon 2.3 Turbo

15

One of the drawbacks of running this site is that I don’t really get to enjoy reading builds as much as I used to. Before I started Build-Threads.com in 2009, I would have my bookmarks filled with build threads of all types, to enjoy at my own leisure. These days, I have you guys to […]

RB26 Alfa Romeo 147

RB26ALFA

Here’s one of my oldest drafts, it’s been gathering dust for many, many years. I pretty much convinced myself I’d never feature it, because the thread stopped receiving updates a long time ago. But I have a desire to purge all of my draft posts, and well, this one is just crazy enough to warrant […]

MK1 VW Caddy R32 4-Motion

IMG_6307_zpsa0e88870

Things have been quieter than usual around here and on Facebook/Twitter lately, and while I do apologise for that, I promise I have a good reason! My wife and I welcomed our first child into the world just over a week ago, so things have been understandably busy at home. But believe me when I […]

Project Thunderbolt LS3 Miata [video build]

TTG

If you’ve been following my “What I’m Watching” series, you would have seen me post about Tom’s Turbo Garage on more than one occasion, including this very project I’m about to share with you again. What can I say? I love Tom’s work, his videos are enjoyable, informative, and funny, not to mention he’s great […]

Project Ugly Horse

10UglyHorse

Another Mustang?! Well, yes, but this one’s a little different. Actually, it’s a lot different, because there’s no bent-8 to be seen in the propulsion department. Project Ugly Horse is a build I’ve stumbled across more than once, and found myself re-visiting it enough times that I realised I should probably put it up on […]

What I’m Watching: Giant Killer 510

Yes, I’m biased towards Datsuns (and especially 510s), but what did you expect!? Build Threads Discussion Group member John recently posted up this video that was created about his F20C 510 build. It’s a great piece that gives you an insight into not only the build of the car, but the owner, too, which is […]

EG Civic / S15 Silvia – Buttoning things up

10540846_10152734133896449_5400149961524967040_n-940x705

We’re already up to Part 5 of the Impossible Fabrications / Nulon EG Civic build. In this installment we start at the back of the car to see the rear suspension framework finalised, and an alloy fuel tank fabricated. Then we work our way along the tailshaft and custom transmission tunnel, before heading to the […]

EG Civic / S15 Silvia – Rear suspension & driveline

civ4

The guys at Impossible Fabrications are absolutely rocketing along with the Nulon EG Civic build, I can barely keep up! In part 3, we saw the SR20DET inserted into the engine bay, using the S15 front suspension, crossmember and strut towers. Now it’s the rear of the car getting some very similar attention… Click here […]

EG Civic / S15 Silvia – Engine installed!

Nulon-Civic

Part 3 of the Nulon / Impossible Fabrications EG Civic is already here! In this update, we see the S15 SR20DET engine and gearbox find their way home. Of course they were always going to fit perfectly, because this particular little Honda already has a full S15 front end, which we saw installed in Part […]
