I’m new to the gto/ car modding scene and have just bought myself a gto as a project. Have just bought a 1992 twin turbo with 54000km which requires minor work such as slave cylinder and fuel tank. Pics to come…
Just wondering what tasteful mods I could do to the car with a budget of 4-5k bearing in mind I’ve bought this to sell on once completed. My thoughts are the following …
Respray back to original red colour, car is currently blue which i like but engine bay is red
Reupholster the seats in padded leather with got emblem
Add a dash of red to the current leather ripspeed steering wheel
DVD / dab radio
New exhaust system
Charcoal grey alloy wheels
As you are all gto heads here just wondering whether this would be the right direction to go in, or is original best policy
Depends on how much you’ve paid for it and profit you expect, 5k mod budget plus original cost will not leave you much profit also adding mods will restrict the amount of people interested in buying it.
Fix the problems and restore as close to original as possible would probably be best
Thanks that makes sense… I have seen a seller on ebay has sold a couple of these for 10-12k with similar mods. Just wondering if I had a years enjoyment while I wait for a sale whether that would be worthwhile.
Going to sign up as a full member here anyhow and see some examples etc.
The person you are on about is a guy named Ibrahim, he sells junk at the highest price, have heard some real disaster stories from people who have dealt with this guy. As @robbiewarriner says, to do most of these mods would not leave you much room for profit. You’ll find that the guys and gals on here are not ‘out to make a quick buck’ but are really passionate about their cars.
Having said that welcome to ‘UK’, join, create a rebuild thread and as you progress we can watch and compliment on what you’re trying to achieve, any questions just fire away, even if you think they might be daft. We’re all daft so you’ll fit right in.
Welcome to the community echo what’s said before, a stock car in pristine condition will have best value, mods is fun but usualy you never get back what you spend.
I would loose the body kit and get everything working and deal with any rust issues to start.
I can help with fuel tanks, smic,s and maybe some other stuff if you need.
Good luck with the project and get joined up, best 20 quid you can spend.
Guys I’ve just checked my fuel tank as I bought slosh solution to clean and seal. There is abit of damage and the seals maybe be open? Anyone familiar as need to know if safe or worth buying replacement…
