2002 build advice
Hi all,

I really like the look and rarity of the BMW 2002 but I'm very well aware such dreams don't come cheap. Eventually I'd like to one day build a canyon crusher type car that I can also take to the track.

Have this silly idea that I can get a fairly beaten up 2002 and restomod by fitting new engine (Maybe an inline 4/6 from e30 or e36), gearbox (dog leg preferably for that old school feelWink, suspension, exhaust, LSD, brakes and roll cage (probably half).

Visually I would want the car to look decent by removing rust and repainting the body. Interior wise, I'm not too fussy and will probably try reclaim seats or find any old school looking racing seats.

Realistically:
1. Is what I'm looking for at all possible to build? How much car knowledge would I need to have to manage the process and DIY some stuff
2. What should I expect to budget for this kind of undertaking? (even more helpful if you can give a breakdown in groups e.g., body ZAR30k, repaint ZAR30k, Engine recondition and install ZAR30k, etc....) FYI - Not trying to build a Le Mans or Concours winning car. I'm also not in a rush to get it done quickly. I just want something that looks decent, I can drive hard reliably and have fun with.

Any additional advice is welcome. Thumbs

How long is a piece of string?
I recently had my project car stripped and resprayed...a decent job goes for around R40-50k. This would be a good job but certainly not concourse.
The most important part is to get a base car with all the parts...sourcing spares can be extremely expensive on rare cars. I have seen that the best deals tend to happen by word of mouth so get the word out their to people connected or even mechanics that service them and may know of someone selling.

R300k excluding the price of the car.

Above figure is conservative.

Theres a guy (:thumbs:Mo) in JHB south who loves these cars, maybe take your car to his car wash and have a chat with him..........Mzansi Auto Finishers just off Xavier (old friendly supermarket complex).

He does a real good job so definately worth your time to pay him a visit.
