Exclamation Rebuild/Restoration projects link database..........

I love the idea of rebuilding cars, everyone here knows how much i enjoyed my 800 rebuild, however i have read up extensively on the topic of rebuilding and restoration on the internet and am truly humbled and amazed, my project is merely a shoddy paint job when compared to some of the projects that have been so meticulously documented!!!

The end results are cars which are simply pieces of art, with finishes far superior than the day they rolled off their respective assembly lines, engine bays you could eat off, underbody components that would redefine the phrase 'sueaky clean', interiors that are so luxurious and some just plain ol' race-functional, paint finishes never dreamed of, chromed parts that defy the laws of polishing!!!!

These crazy documentaries, however, have been very hard to find, being as low key as they are, due to the fact that they're online just to share their experience with a few that are interested!!

So, I post this thread [Hopefully, 'sticky' if the mods oblige] as a database of links to well documented rebuilds, restorations or race projects, so people looking for guidelines and inspiration for a project of their own won't have to go hunting!!!

Here goes................

A beautifully restored 1974 BMW 2002tii

A crazy Mini Cooper race project
