Hey all. So I've a Mitsubishi FTO here that I'm looking to restore as a track car (so doesn't have to pass the MOT/ NCT or whatever road test you have locally) but should be safe and I want to stop any further degradation of the car. I've had the car for 12 years so it's something I'm not really willing to let go and in my early 20's I spent a fortune modifying the car so the spec is huge and ill never get a fraction of what it's worth back so I want to enjoy the car. For reasons I wont go into I haven't had access to the car for the past 6 years and I only got it back 2 months ago so that's how something I'm so passionate about has been left to get into this terrible condition. I'm definitely in well over my head and as everyone says with rust its just the tip of the iceberg. I don't have the crazy thousands that people here in Ireland are quoting to restore it so I'm going to take on what I can myself and offload what I need to where required (so will be looking for advice from you guys as to what you would suggest leaving for someone other than a beginner.) This is going to be a slow burn project as the only space I have to keep it is in my In law's and that's about an hour away so wont get to go at it regularly but when I do ill be doing bit chunks of work. So to kick off the this thread here's a few pics of how she looks now and from a distance she doesn't look bad for a 23 year old car.
