It’s that time of year again when Mustang Maniac visits USA to take in the Sema 2015 Show which will run from 29th October to November 6th. There will be a few of us going to the States, and as a result the Mustang Maniac offices will be closed from Wednesday 28th October until the Wednesday 11th November. But, the good news is that the WebShop will be open as normal. All orders will still be dispatched as normal and invoiced as normal so there will be no disruption to that side of the business. Please can you bare with us for a short while we temporarily scale down for a couple of weeks. Yogi will be around in the workshops, but will not be taking many calls as the work allocation has already been established in the meantime. The second part of the good news is that we will try to update our blog with some of the good stuff we see to keep you right up to date with the show. You never know we could bring back some new Mustang related stock too, we will have to wait and see in that one though.
Alpha red convertible is almost finished now. We will have a full road test, once over again and then she can go. The new custom-made roof has been fitted and looks pretty good up and also covered. Adam was sitting in the car checking things over and all was at it should be. The door cards were also custom-made with red sticking on leather to match the seats. This is one pretty lady that has grown on us since we have worked on her.
The interior looks pretty good and well-coordinated.
Outside speaks for itself.
We had a rare ’67 Coupe with the very nice original front bench seats in place, a factory option vinyl roof come into us for a little work. A very nice optioned factory car.
We often get asked for an immobiliser to fitted to cars which we do from time to time or an alarm system. But we have a new option which fits in between the two. This is a componant that fits to the battery and is remote key fob controlled. The press of a button will kill the complete electrical system dead. The deactivation will enable all the electrics to be live again. A great option and does not look to out-of-place either. We have a couple of these units and may consider these as a stock item as we are quite impressed with them. The other advantage is that a battery conditioner can still be used on the car without the electrics being live.
Faulty fuel gauge?
We had a car delivered to us after sitting around for 15 years. The fuel gauge was showing empty al the time, circuit testing shows the wires to the gauge were fine. That can only leave the sender itself. We removed the sender and found it had corroded severely. You can see the fuel line on the float and filter.
Remember, offices are closed for a couple of weeks while we are at Sema 2015. WebShop and workshops will be operating as normal as possible.
