Hey folks. Would you like a forum dedicated for Project Builds?
(Hopefully the moderators are listening)
Q: What does this mean??
A: I'm talking about a full project thread that details a restoration/story of your car. This would include multiple sub-projects (paint, body, brakes, engine, brightwork, modifications, suspension, upholstery, stereo). A "build thread" would be the accumulation of the work that goes into your vehicle all in one thread.
A: There's a lot of great restorations and modded cars out there. It would be nice to have one dedicated forum to see the FULL STORY of how the project came to be.
Hey, I used to visit VF 13years ago, then went on a hiatus for a decade. Do you know what happened to the original guy who owned this site? He featured his resto build of a Fastback from what I could remember.
seems like a great idea. I love to read the build threads. Many do have threads of their build as described but they are hard to find. Someone could be doing a ground up original restoration and post in concours section, another a "restomod" and post in the Mod and Custom section, etc. I think a dedicated section for builds would be cool so they are easy to find. Especially when a project takes a long time and someone doesn't post for a while. They could get buried. I am more of a lurker and love to read about and see pics of the build, especially little side projects like building an custom instrument panel or swapping in a unique engine trans combo, hunting down that elusive rare optioned part, etc...
Anyway, that's my 2 cents

I have a build thread on another forum. Its a great way to document your work & a help for others also.

Hey folks, I'm still trying to get votes for a new forum dedicated to your PROJECT BUILDS, which would be more of a long-term running documentation and conversation about your project. I've listed some examples so far.
I've got a project build thread and I still use the other forums for questions/comments here and there.
There are only a few "no" voters, but I'd be interested to hear what their concerns would be.
I think it's great idea! In fact I kinda surprised that there already isn't one. But I do have a question, what would be the difference between the proposed forum and the gallery forum, which already has several build threads in it?
Thanks for the question Supercar14! Yeah, I get that. You'll find "build threads" in various places. Most of them are in the gallery. One of the most viewed and commented build threads is actually in the "vintage forum".
A build thread, I think, would also encourage people to post and keep track of their long term projects.
