Unfortunately most of us will never see the money back that gets ploughed in to the motor, i think all in so far i've put in about 3k in to my classic and that doesn't include the price i paid for the car and most probably I'll not get that back if i come to sell, you can get hold of the rear light seals from import car parts but unsure how much they would be and the headlights can be done with some toothpaste and some time being patient, you could get a exhaust custom made as they not that expensive and will come with a lifetime guarantee and you can get the wheels stripped and powder coated for a couple hundred quid but like i said before you'll most likely never see a return on all the cash you'll invest in the car, we do it for the love of the cars and putting our own personal touch on them 👍👍

you wont ever get your money back on mods and such, i;ve prob dropped 20k into mine and it will prob mean if i were to sell it i;d get 2-3k more than if i hadnt. But to me its always about enjoyment, break it down per hour and it works out cheap as chips 😄
