seeking venture capitalists for limited production run
I am an INDEPENDENT broker, project manager, sales associate and service advisor/writer.

I an industry professional looking to kick-start a short term spring/summer pilot project with long term return potential. The goal of this project is to document the overhaul (limited production run) of multiple units of a chosen platform for future R&D. Setting up a core exchange program in the long term is also an objective. Assembling multiple units simultaneously in an assembly line like fashion will reduce cost and minimize downtime while maximizing returns.
I will be outsourcing certain aspects of this assignment to local established businesses who stand by their work. I have already contacted and formed relationships with these local contractors who are essential to the this process.
The estimated delivery date is less than 60-90 days from commencement, for this first, limited production run. All of the units will be hand built to factory OEM (or Competition) spec. Once the platform is chosen, I will have more specifics.

Other individual projects will be considered. I intend on running things at cost, with a focus on productivity, and efficiency.

Sounds like you don't even know what your building/selling.

Agree. What is the output... a process document or a product? Might be interested in something like this but need at least a basic business concept.

Yea I think you forgot the what and how much. Assuming you are trying to sell something

In simpler terms I am looking to overhaul/recondition a handful of vehicles simultaneously back to factory new condition mechanically. I would like to start off with chassis that are already in like new condition aesthetically. For example we could choose the e36 platform for it's availability and affordability. The objective would be to end up with the e36 m3 euro spec derived from the m52 and the 6 speed getrag unit. That would be the finished product. From my experience with BMW, no custom fabrication would be required for fitment and mounting. Perhaps for prepping the block, but the machinist would perform the work. All e36 models from 318s to 328s are candidates with the 328s being ideal. Donors would be required for the gearboxes and final drives. Since no e36 in North America came equipped as such, this would increase the market value of the car as well as it's appeal.
This is just an example. If there is enough interest, I can generate some real numbers and specifics that we can discuss further. For this first limited production run, markup on parts as well as labour can be heavily discounted to maintain affordability and to ensure completion in a timely fashion.
BMW is a expensive, but high quality, and reliable. High re-sale values too. The process will be documented, photographed, and I will include a journal with specifications.
Sponsorships deals to cut costs can also be arranged. A show like finish can be achieved.

you're looking for other people's money to build a m52 into a s50b32?

okay...let me start again. do you, or anyone you know have interest in a build? perhaps you are in the market for a car, or you are looking to add a little flare to a car you already own. I am an experienced engine builder, and a transmission tech. I am willing to discount my work in order to generate referrals. Is there a section of the forum where I can post an ad as a technician? I will be setting up a temporary location close to the GTA in the spring/summer. I would prefer a more extensive build to showcase my work. Finding more than one individual would decrease cost, sort of like a group but where labour is also discounted.

Thank you for your time

its cheaper to import a euro car then build one, and there are many many shops that could do this, many of which are paying sponsers of this site, may want to look into sponsering the site b4 you cut the grass!!!
