Project 7 Full ground up resto
« on: September 08, 2017, 12:42:45 AM »
Hi all its been a long time since I've been on here & wanted some advice, I got a 93 fd, pretty stock atm been dry stored for about 5 years, it's pretty straight, reasonably clean. I'm looking to get it fully restored & wondering people thoughts on who to take it to for a full rebuild and overhaul of all the braking systems etc e.g. the full works to get it roadworthy again & if I'm there possibly squeeze out a bit more power.I have a decent budget in mind but obv want to get as much for my cash as poss n just wondering  what the consensus was for best bang for buck as far as who to goto????

thinking outside the box too, plenty of love for the stock car only gotta look at other cars to realise that stock is where the value is longterm...poss full resto as is...if you still want more power...sell and buy a modified 1? get a build thread going, where here to help.

Not running but was before it was put away & brakes are pretty seized up :-( ,I'm going to get the brakes freed up & drag it out the garage this weekend, see if it turns over .I'm pretty much resigned to a full rebuild, was going to contact WGT, rotary revs & super seven this week to get a worst case scenario price and take things from there, I'm budgeting around 6k to get it back on the road so I'll see how it goes. I wont be going crazy keeping the body mostly stock & was thinking if its getting rebuilt anyway I could go single turbo get rid of the headache of the twins not crazy power, just a little bump n preferably a little more reliable
