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

1808179d1385733327-f40-lm-restoration-dsc_5475s

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

lewisbuilt1

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 […]

What I’m Watching: Bamse’s Turbo Underpants

Bamse

When Bamse was asked what the difference was between normal underpants and turbo underpants, his response was “the skidmarks are bigger”. Who can argue with that? Despite these videos being in Finnish, there’s no subtitles needed for the amount of rev-limiter bashing, exhaust popping, tyre frying burnouts that you’ll see. These guys are very entertaining, […]

Project Honda City Turbo II – Teardown

F4AAF608-07DA-40FB-B8CE-E6AF089C03B9

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 […]

What I’m Watching: Tom’s Turbo Garage

TomsTurboGarage

I’ve been binge-watching this awesome channel lately, and it’s all about the wrenching activity of a very funny and informative gear-head called Tom (although his overalls go by a different name). He has uploaded numerous videos on his various project cars, including a Mazda MX5, Mitsubishi Galant VR4, and a Buick Grand National (all turbocharged, […]

What I’m Watching: You drive the Pagani Huayra

Marchettino

As I mentioned a few posts ago, I’ve really gotten into YouTube lately, so I figured I might as well share all the stuff that keeps me from being more productive I view in moderation. I’ve decided to start a new post topic called What I’m Watching, which will show what I’m currently viewing. Videos […]

Project Honda City Turbo II – Introduction

DSC_0097

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 […]

’91 Subaru Legacy RS Type RA

LegacyRA

While this build itself is very impressive and highly detailed, it’s the other automotive work that the owner partakes in that will really pique your interest. His car of choice is a 1991 Subaru Legacy RS, a love affair that started while serving an apprenticeship with Subaru, working on race and rally cars for Possum […]
