Okay now I don't really know if this is going to catch on but I'v had the game for a week now and I love it. So I have decided to start a topic where you can post all of your projects, finished or unfinished. Feel free to post pictures of orders you have received and what you have caught at the auctions!


Here is my beautifully 100% restored Maluch. picked this baby up at the auctions for only $1600 and now it's going for around $6000 with a restoration bonus.









Hope you guys approve of this topic and I look forward to seeing your projects soon!

You should dude. It's a a fantastic game, so clean and simple. Not mention relaxing. It's quite hard to first get some cash flowing but you'll figure it out.

Yes I know. But the game doesn't have licensing rights for real cars so they make some up like GTA does.

So I'm back with another restoration project. Today's car is the new DLC car, the Delray Custom. The car cost me $9,746.00 at the auctions and came with terrible body and engine rust.











After I stripped down the entire car some parts were salvageable and were fully repaired to 100%. After I rebuilt the running gear, brakes, engine, exhaust, body and drivetrain, I decided to paint it with a beautiful light blue. I then chose some authentic classic stock car wheels for the final installment.











I am really happy with the outcome of the build and in turn, it sold for $69,755.00 which is amazing considering the purchase price. A great car to work with and look forward to the next restoration which will be the Royale GTR.

I went to the auctions, and rescued a decent Bolt Reptilia. This thing is rough, but repairable.

It came up onto the block with a $7361 starting bid



And I took it home for $16861. Totally broke It sat in my garage, until I had enough to fix her up



Took it out to see what was broke, and it ran right from the auction. The power was immense! Compared to most of the shitboxes I'd been driving, this was a breath of fresh air, err, rather rusty dust.





Then I took some around the car shots









So, I stripped her down to bare bones











I used the workbench to repair what I could, and rebuilt the suspension and engine, (wish I could convert it to the dual carb intake, but whatever)















Then I gave her a super sexy paintjob.
Little Red Corvette!










And so ends the Bolt. They say I can sell it for a cool $57,087, but I'm not gonna sell her anytime soon.

I saw this thing start bid at 11 grand, and sold for WAYYYYY more then I would have every paid for it





Then, my next project rolled across the block, and I bought it, mostly because of the price.



$747 is 5 bucks more then what I paid for my irl car.

The final price was $2,247



But, my shop is currently full of generic hatchbacks wanting timing fixes and oil changes.

@dxg1997 - I really like the Bolt Reptillia and you did a great job restoring it, especially at a lower level and not a whole lot of cash. Good luck with the Maluch as well!


As I said yesterday, my next project would be a Royale GTR that I picked up from the auctions. Believe me, this car was not easy to obtain and ended up selling for $47,092.00. This set me back a bit so I made a few calls and did a few jobs to get some cash for the restoration.





I stripped her down to the chassis and began working on fixing the parts that came on the car. I was surprised to see that about 75% of the parts actually came out at 100% condition. I sold the junk and then proceeded to purchase all the rest of the parts I need for the restoration.


Once the car was done, I slapped on some aftermarket parts and painted it bright red.





Once the whole car had been completed I did a bit of maths and worked out that the entire restoration cost me $11,868.00 and the car is now going for a sale price of $104,121.00. That's an overall profit of $45,161.00!


I really like how the car turned out so I will be keeping it in my own collection for the time being. I may even respray it a certain shade of yellow and fit some nice black rims to give it a more aggressive look. My next build could be anything! I have been meaning to try and pick up a Royale Crown as it comes turbocharger stock and I would like to work with it's engine. But until then I hope to do a few more client jobs to gather some more all-round experience.

@dxg1997 - It depends on the vehicle. I think the Maluch doesn't allow any other wheels on it but mess around with other cars and it will be fine. Most of the rims I have fitted to my cars have gone on without fuss.

Tried my hand at a little Photoshop and added some cheeky little effects to my new and improved Royale GTR. I lobe the way the car looks now.


I have just bought myself a Tempest Magnum and I am currently restoring it to it's original state, I will post some pictures of it soon!
