I dont have an estate? I really wanted a clubman estate though :(
It may not seem many are interested in this thread but I surprisingly get messages /calls from time to time as I have put my number in them before.There are a lot of people who want to know first hand from someone who BUILT THEIR OWN CAR and On top of it one who built one that is street friendly and not annoying..
.Someone with a turn key drive anywhere type car,any type of cold weather or hot temperature,stand still traffic in 90+ for hours,someone with 10" wheels who tried GOLF CART wheels/diff offsets,did it on a budget in certain areas with a bag of tools and a grinder and a cheap stick welder that I didnt even know how to use before the build.I'm not a master mechanic or fabricator ..this swap is truly quite simple and VERY rewarding when done right.Any issue that people complain about CAN BE RESOLVED by your choices during the build.The car can be as quiet as you want it and smooth as you want it and more reliable then it EVER was if YOU BUILD IT RIGHT AND PAY ATTENTION.
The outcome of the build can be everything you want it to be,you just have to stay focused and make it what you want.If you rush it and dont pay attention to little things you will NOT like the car.That's any car you build to this extent.Leave a few things lose/sloppy here and there and before you know it you have creaks and rattles,exhaust leaks,sloppy steering etc etc all,because you were lazy and didn't pay attention then you wont be happy with it...
Me? I'm careless in ways but love everything about it.I just want a cruise everywhere type car I can race other cars with and surprise the hell out of them lol :)
