39582423-6AE4-44A1-B0A1-B729C8AA1476

I haven’t posted an update on Project Honda City Turbo II since late last year, so let’s take a moment to catch up with the finishing touches on this boxy 80′s cult hatch. This is a truly huge update which sees the final mechanical work completed, so the car can attend it’s debut outing, Classic […]

What I’m Watching: TTG Project Thunderbolt

If you’ve been following my What I’m Watching series since the beginning, you would have already seen me post about Tom’s Turbo Garage once before. Still, I thought I should inform you about his latest project, and one that I’m very excited about, Project Thunderbolt! Tom has bought himself a Mazdaspeed NB MX5/Miata and is […]

Project Ugly Horse

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 […]

We’re pretty much at the business-end of the F40 LM restoration now. The body is buttoned up, fuel is flowing through the lines, and the turbos are spooling. Click below to see it take shape, including a couple of videos and a sneak peek at an EVO Magazine photoshoot. We are now up to date […]

With the engine now bolted firmly in place, there’s only one thing left to do, start ‘er up and go for a spin! Well, actually, there’s a few things left to do, but you’ll just have to read all about it in the post below… Previous posts: Part 1: Introduction Part 2: Teardown Part 3: […]

Part 4 of the drool-enducing F40 LM restoration is here, and we are so, so close to seeing it that sweet twin turbo V8 being brought to life. I’m trying to update this thread more regularly than I used to, so hopefully I can get part 5 done in the not too distant future. Click […]

Project Honda City Turbo II – Bringing the engine home

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 3.44.37 pm

It’s been a while since the last Honda City Turbo II update, so I thought I’d back track a little bit and show you some of the smaller jobs that happened in between the engine refresh. I wanted the last post to concentrate on the bulk of the engine work, so I chose to emit […]

Saab 96 / Mazda MX5

Saab-MX5

I remember back in 2011 when I posted a certain chassis swap build, I commented on how long it had been since the last one was featured on the site. Well it sure doesn’t seem like we have that problem any more, because it feels like almost every second build is a chassis swap! If […]

Ferrari F40 LM Restoration Part 3

I really wanted to keep the Ferrari F40 LM Restoration in one large post, however it was proving too large to handle. For this latest update, I’ve decided to create a separate post. I’ve also split the original post into two parts, just to make it easier on everyone’s bandwidth, including mine! You can access […]

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 […]
