TROUBLE REVEALED! Full Investigation of My ABANDONED Porsche 914

It's time to find out EVERYTHING that's wrong with my newly bought, abandoned Porsche 914! We're on the road to visit @yorkshirecarrestoration who will be undergoing the work for the latest Shmeemobile, and find out just how much of a financial disaster it really is... this ends badly!

I've bought this car very blind, at a great price due to being in need of a lot of work, making it a great basis for a complete project to turn it into something really special. My specific car is a 914/4 2.0 from 1973, originally from Canada, and recently imported into the UK but still in lots of pieces.

This is where Steve, Ryan and the team at YCR step in to start taking a proper look over it and find out how much work is ahead for this one. Unsurprisingly for a car that's over 50 years old, there's a lot of hidden rust that really needs to be restored before the rest of the project can begin - and it turns out to be a load more of a problem than I expected.

Make sure to also follow @yorkshirecarrestoration directly for plenty of the updates that are coming with this, interspersed with progress on the Shmee150 channel as we go too. It's a really exciting project, even if there's even more work required than we thought!
