Opie & Dave-RoR's Rebuilds

So there is something satisfying about bringing a car back from the "dead" and being able to do it in the comfort of your own garage. Seems this journey just to build myself a fun track car has become an addiction/hobby. LOL

Opie's 1st Rebuild - For my track car

Opie's 2nd rebuild - Garage Hobby

Dave-RoR's Track car build- #3

Anyone thinking of tackling this themselves feel free to PM any questions to myself or Dave-RoR.

Project 5: - Update 1:

Some early disassembly on Whiteout found a bent rear bumper beam and small dent that'll need to be pulled behind the rear bumper cover. New rear beam is on the way.


Drove her out and got her washed off after pulling most of the damaged parts off to get our parts list together. Started removing the plasti-dip off the wheels...


Debating whether to repair this one of the DGM BRZ next...I'm thinking the white one would make a great T5 car...

Keeping tracking, building race cars and track cars for friends, some will be sold...for a profit? Maybe if we are lucky. The majority is because it's fun to put them back together.
