Questions & Answers

First of all we would like to apologise for no posts over the recent few weeks and we would like to thank our customers that have emailed us; Yes we are fine, Yes the blog is still here and will continue to be updated as normal. We had a short (much-needed) break a few weeks ago and we have been trying to catch up ever since! Simple as that, sometimes the seven days a week is quite a lot and something has to give in the name of rest and sanity, but we have found some time and have done a quick update to show we are still here.

This week we have been pleased with the fact that we have had a couple of customers come to us for advice on their cars. The first was a 1970 Coupe that has been self converted to a right hand drive. A nicely done piece of work and the paint job looks great and very unique. The owner is quite rightly proud of his accomplishment for a not so easy conversion at the best of times. We have seen a few examples where the right hand drive conversions look pretty sub standard should we say and it tends to ruin the look of the car, this example proves to be an exception to that rule.

The second was a ’66 Coupe that the owner wanted our opinion on how their car drove on the road. A nice looking car and to bad at all compared to some of the cars we have had to sort out in the past.

It was fortunate that both these cars came in to us during a quite time so we could spend some quality time with the owners. We would like to think that we consider ourselves to be very honest and we will tell you what needs to be done, if anything at all. We will give you options with the minimum work that needs to be done or the full monty based on our very high standards depending on your budget of course. No pushy sales from us just facts and figures that you need to hear in order to make your mind up.

The ’66 nut and bolt restoration is going well with pretty much all the metal work now completed and she is in bare metal apart from the new panels that have been fitted. It has been a long labour intensive job to get tot this point and will soon be of to paint once the preliminary filler work has been completed.

Our WebShop has now started to take the majority of our parts ordering which is much more efficient for the customers and our dispatch process. Of course you can still pop in and buy direct from our stores and we will be happy to help out with any question at the time.

Hopefully we will be back to normal with our posts again and thanks for your on-going support.

    • Hi Steve,
      Long and short of it is that there are no left to right hand “kits” as such. But there are a few metal panels such as the full fire wall etc which is available for the 67 – 68 cars. These parts are difficult to come buy (Australian market) and are expensive when you eventually track them down. When we have a conversion request to do here, we fabricate the metal from scratch to each individual car so it’s a very much bespoke build and a long labour intensive process to do it well. There is also the steering, pedal linkages, dash etc to consider as well as the main panel works. Hope that helps.
