Very hot, but molding the bumpers to the quarters seems like a bad idea for a car that might get wadded up at some point.

I guess it's trickle-down from the myriad "technical challenge reality" shows and it's become common usage, but can we stop using "Build" as a noun?

Found this place while surfing. I've seen several of these linked on here, but this is a cool all in one place.

hmmmmmmmm, not sure this qualifies as kick a$$....

I'm building a little car, her name is Surreptitious. She began life as a 1983 Toyota Corolla SR5 coupe

she is getting a warmed over 4AG (built by Loynings Engine Services), FJO management will be controlling ignition and spark, an AZ6 6 speed for the gears, 4 wheel disc brakes, and Tokico HTS adjustable dampers.

For complete details of this build.... http://hachiroku.net/forums/showthread.php?t=16037

In reply to oldeskewltoy:

I looked at every page! That is a big project. The wiring looks over whelming to me. I am glad we both have someone to help with that part. Keep up the good work.

New Way cool build thread a RWD Volvo 480. Unfortunately it's a Swedish site so it's all in gobbledygook. Luckily I will now translate all 25 pages for you, here goes:

Look at my cool 480.
Watch as I rebuild it stock as FWD and add a cage'n'E36 M3.
Now I'm board, I know let's make it RWD !
This Is how I add the rear suspension from an e30 bimmer
This is how I turn the engine round, add a gearbox and make a tunnel.
Look at my shiny megasquirt
Here's some vid's

Amazing isn't it how it all looks so much longer in gobbledygook!

Anyway, this car is worthy of the 'JOTUNN' license plate I have on my C30.

Here's the build thread http://www.zatzy.com/projekt/221516-b18_a-volvo-480-turbo-proj.html
