Gold FFM Mysterae Posted January 24, 2022 Gold FFM Report Share Posted January 24, 2022 I've been wanting to do a full on restoration to my Esprit for a few years and the opportunity is getting closer. I'm just wondering what are the likely costs involved? I'm not planning an 'as it left the factory' restoration as technology has moved on and there are certainly improvements to be made, but nothing too outlandish and certainly no £16k interiors either (if only!). So, what's the likely costs of doing it myself where possible or subbing it out to professionals, in no particular order: - engine rebuild (it has 103k miles so far and no history of previous rebuild) - exhaust manifold (the existing pig-iron one looks okay but we know they don't last) - turbo rebuild - gearbox refurb - various coolant and oil coolers either replaced or refurbed - front & rear brakes upgrade - front & rear suspension upgrade - steering rack (possibly adding PAS, don't know) - new aluminium fuel tanks (RHS already done but in steel) - a good respray in original pacific blue - upgraded chargecooler pump but keeping original chargecooler - interior carpet - the unforeseen What do you reckon and have I missed any big ticket items?
