There you are. Nice.

Daring hosing down that engine bay with a pressure washer.

Just watched the 3 YouTube episodes. Fantastic work. Great to see this rare car brought back to its former glory.

I was thinking the same thing.

Some other take aways that cracked me up because I can totally relate to: describing this (or any other hardcore) restoration as "masochism", undoing the "ghetto" fixes, and using the measuring calipers to mount the M3 emblem.

Awesome work and collection!

Not at all actually.


Love the GT, one of my favorite cars. I would really like to see one go through a full nut and bolt restoration, but your mini build was entertaining to watch.

Fun to watch, thanks for sharing. There are a couple details that aren't quite up to OEM levels, but overall it looks like a pretty good refresh and well worth saving a car like that. Glad to see it being properly cared for AND enjoyed.

Thanks for posting OP, very nice restoration!

Light restorations like this are always great. Can be driven without worries of little things happening.

twentyseven, what was not up to OEM levels? I'm guessing interior? I don't know the GTs as well as the CSLs.
