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 […]

Group 2 Zakspeed Mk2 Escort

Yep, another classic British Ford, seems to be the flavour lately. This one is a MK2 Escort, taken from a granny-spec stocker all the way to a fabricated and widened twin-cam track tearer. I really like how far they’ve developed and modified the factory floorpan instead of simply ripping it all out and replacing it […]

UPDATE – MK2 Golf Mid-Engine RWD

But hey, cars are built to be driven and bikes are built to be ridden, so we should rejoice when a build reaches it’s final destination. I posted this […]

MK2 Golf GTI

RWD MKII Jetta

Mid-engine RWD MKII Volkswagen, sounds familiar, doesn’t it? That’s because a very similar project was featured here over a year ago [click here].

S2 MKII VW Golf

Sliding throttle bodies + DIY metal casting

I’m pretty sure this is the most extreme and creative use of DIY I’ve ever seen. Sure, some people have access to CNC machines, or they might be handy with a lathe, but have you ever seen someone CAST their own parts? The owner is even creating his own 16V head and a sliding throttle […]

Mk2 Golf Mid-Engine RWD

Another Golf, but this one’s a bit more ‘function over form’ than previous VW features. Mid-engine, rear wheel drive; I’ll let the pics do the rest of the talking…
