Default SG9 Forester Build

I have Recently Bought Half of a SG9 from japan and now I'm in extreme debt. Any one Recommend what I should do in order to slowly build my forester? Please bear in mind i have no tools and a single car garage

Is there any one out there that Sponsers Huge Builds like mine?

I have Gone to Forman Performance and i have been quoted, I would really like to save on order to have them build it, but thats going to take forever and i have to pay storage atm and im trying to get out of that as fast as Possible!

Any Positive Comments will surely Help!

Sell your newly acquired "project."

Save your money and pick this "project" back up when you can afford it.

Take "dance lessons", apply to work at a "Adult Club", work that pole (both ways), and make that money!

^^ These are the type of 'helpful' responses you should expect from the majority of the nasioc community.

Try asking on iwsti, socalsubies, and sf.org

You'll get the same responses just about anywhere you go, with this sort of myopic planning, and both a lack of funding and logistics?

What business wouldn't want to burn into their FY15 advertising budget to work with an incredibly slim chance recoup that return on investment. Great marketing strategy.

The OP literally put in the same amount of effort that it would take to work a street corner, not the type required to win the favor of a reputable sponsorship opportunity.

Just say what you really mean then. I don't think pokestar realized at the first the whole he dug for himself. He's seriously asking to see if there is any possible way out and needed a more direct answer.

You're welcome. Good luck. I have to say though that you sort of dug a hole for yourself. Unless you have a good reputation with motorsports in the past, a huge following online and social media, or exceptional business skills, it's going to be hard to get a sponsorship that's more than 25% off products. You're still going to be paying a lot.

Congrats and GL OP on getting your build done.

I don't have alot of recs.. and as a Forester owner that did most all of the work myself/with others,, I thing a brief idea of plans/goals would help here.

I would keep reaching out locally and you might find someone willing to work with you in your one car garage. However you will need to be specific in what you are trying to accomplish and goals..giving someone a better idea of your plans requires accomplishing a rough quote.

There aren't many local places like there used to be for volunteer workshops...or affordable local options for that matter.

Foreman is on my list of "not to go to" shops when it comes to motor work or trouble shooting issues.

Thanks for your advice Preacher#1

I need to install a complete drive train

Complete RHD interior

The full front end including the motor and also the two front doors tha have power folding mirrors

Its quite a lot when you start going into detail. I would love to be able to put this together my self but it would take me for ever and a half just to figure out all the electrical and motor components. Not to mention i need to take out my current EJ255

Im in the process of selling my current DD so that should get me going..

I think these "helpful responses" are more thought out than his build is.

Not to bash, but buying a front clip online is a giant step, consider that he has no space, tools, or money. I would love to buy a right hand drive front clip online and hook up my bugeye, but do I do it? No! I know that I don't have the space or funds...

In all sincerity OP, I do wish you luck and hope you find a way to make it happen, and next time have the foresight before going into such a large project.

Thanks for your sincerty, and to be honest your not far off from the truth considering I dont have space nor tools to work on my current project. Bare in mind its not everyday you come by a rhd sg9 in the U.S. and to be frank I think I might be the only one with a complete sg9... On the other hand buying a rhd bugeye might be a waste of money and time if you ask me, its just not worth it. (No offense) As for my money issues, im not broke I still have to pay bills and im the bread winner of my house. Maybe I just gave off the wrong vibe with the OP Idk.. I just wanted a little insight of what ppl might do in a certain situation like mine to save a few bucks here and there.
