This week on Build + Driver Series I got a chance to interview my homie Jeff and his F80 M3. I've been a long time fan of not only his build, but also his humility. He was one of the first guys that supported me and watch me grow for a long time. Here's a little introduction for those
What is your name or handle and whats your Instagram page for people to follow and also where you from?

What are some Pro's and Con's of this build?
Pros have been the accessibility of parts / Cons is building late in the generation it’s very hard to be original.

Is there any other cars or projects you would like to work on next?
I’d love to build a retro / classic - Porsche, vw beetle, Mini Cooper.
Any special shout outs you would like to give?
@galley_m3 has been my build mentor since day one and become a dear friend. Alex and Erik from @edelweiss_wheels for always taking care of me. My friend @cyrious.automotive number one photographer and probably my biggest supporter. My wife @jenngordon6 for supporting my build and my car club @vehicularexclusivity.
