Not long ago I posted a link on the Facebook page about this very interesting project from Sydney, Australia. I’ve since been asked by the owner, Christopher, if I would like to re-post the progress of the build on Build-Threads.com, to which I happily obliged. So here is part 1, which gives you a nice […]

Exclusive look: Peasnell Racing Designs

I know for the most part that Build-Threads.com is kind of a one-way thing. I post, you read, that type of deal. But the truth is that I love hearing from readers via email, Twitter, the Facebook page, and the new Facebook Discussion Group. Whilst everyone’s projects can’t be featured, I still love seeing what […]

Project Honda City Turbo II – Engine refresh

t

This Honda City Turbo II seems to be a hit with you guys, and it just goes to show that it’s not all about big horsepower and expensive cars. In the previous post you saw the engine being removed and torn down in preparation for a refresh. While the whole engine won’t be receiving a […]

A few weeks ago I made a post about my visit to a friends place to check out their new Honda City Turbo II build (which you can read here). I promised I’d post their build progress here if there was enough interest, and boy was there ever! There was a resounding “YES” to my […]

A couple of friends of mine (the same guys I went to Winton with) have embarked on a joint project car. The car in question is an obscure little Honda, and it’s not a Civic. Nope, it’s even better, it’s a City Turbo II. If you’re unfamiliar with these awesome little cars, you can read […]

Classic Japan 2013

Yesterday in Melbourne we were gifted with a gorgeous sunny day to mark the start of summer. It also happened to be the same day as Classic Japan, a casual car show catering for Japanese cars and motorbikes that are 25 years or older. No prizes, no trophies, no egos, just a congregation of the […]

If you’ve been a reader of Build Threads since the beginning, then you might remember the BladeRod feature from back in 2009. It’s owner, Mark, the man behind the very entertaining automotive YouTube channel, HoonTV, is a bit of a CBR900 nutter, as he explains in detail in this video. One of the bikes from […]

Mustegra – DC2 Integra / 96 Mustang

Mustegra

This build doesn’t start off with a bare shell, a neglected car found under a tree, or even anything remotely standard, it actually starts off with a Honda Integra that had already been featured in a magazine. So how can a build start off with an already complete car? Well, because the guts of the […]

Electric S2000

Error 404: F20C not found. I was very happy to see this one pop into my inbox, not just because it’s been a while since the last electric build, but because an S2000 is a very unlikely candidate for an electric engine conversion. Thanks to Tito for submitting. Click here for more electric builds.
