The sun is making a difference and nice to be able to work on some cars in the open air rather than in a work shop, not everything can be done outside of course, just the more routine stuff. We had a little delivery of some parts during the week, not the usual stuff that is bubble wrapped, these parts came in on pallets. Part of a stash that we came to hear about and was offered to us if wanted it, so we thought about it and took the lot! These engines vary from some i6’s, 289’s up to some serious big block stuff too along with a couple of others we haven’t fully investigated yet. The blocks all look good and could well be used for parts or complete rebuilds for projects.
We will now strip down some of the rarer engines we know about and store those in a proper containers with their relevant parts. An ideal job to do in the sunshine.
Rust in Piece is coming along nicely and we are working on the interior and tidying up under the dash. It shouldn’t be to long before we Geo the suspension and take her for a road test.
Duct tape Mustang has been fixed and was collect yesterday by the happy owner who can now go back to cruising Europe. The brake issue was indeed the servo, when we test that out on a road test it highlighted an issue with the master cylinder that had to be changed too unfortunately. Like all these things, a new part will show up the weakness in another. While we were at it Yogi done his bit with the brake lines and re-plumbed it back up how it should be in order to adjust the brakes correctly via the front rear balance valve.
The WebShop is going from strength to strength which we are pleased about obviously, so far the feedback has been nothing short of excellent for the in stock parts and dispatch process. We have had a little run on the Classic Tax discs this week for some reason, perhaps the hot weather has got a few cars out of the garage onto the road. We have even sent a couple more tax discs to the USA too.
