It seems as though last weeks post was well received as we had a couple of emails suggesting we should do a competition for the best colouring in. Well, it has been agreed that we will do a little competition for all of our younger readers as well as those big kids among us. The prizes will be one of our Gift Vouchers from Mustang Maniac and a goody bag. You can send us your coloured in pics by pencils, crayons, water colours, airbrushed or Photoshop pics directly to our blog email address just for this competition: firstname.lastname@example.org All the received entries will be judged by Adam, and as usual what he says, that will be the final ruling. The closing date for our first competition will be the mid-day 12th March 2017, and the winner will be announced a week later on the 19th March 2017 with their winning picture. There is even a temporary countdown timer on the right of the page now just to keep you advised of the days left before the closing date. Just make sure you put your contact details with your entry so we can send you the prize if you are the lucky winner. We of course would like to see where we get the entries from all around the world. Download the image from the bottom of the of the post, or click here for a link. Also, if you have any line drawings you wish to share with our readers, again send them to us on the email above and will add them to our download section and give you a shout out on the blog too.
Park & Pic
We have had a couple more pics sent to us and the next in line was Tony Pook’s lovely fastback with a superb number plate. Thanks for the Picture Tony.
Keep those pictures coming in and we will get you on the blog as the lead picture.
We had a ’67 fastback in with us for some work to be finished up and some maintenance. The car has been rewired by the owner and we were asked to finish under the hood wiring.
Yogi has wired the car and wrapped the loom with our own cloth tape to for that original look.
We were asked to fire the car up for a few seconds after it had been wired up. The engine had no exhaust headers fitted at this point and not a lot water in the engine.
Ever wondered what a v8 looks like firing straight out of the cylinders? Here is a very rare chance to see only a few seconds of what happens, filmed from inside the Yogi workshop.
Before you ask, yes it was a LOT louder than the video suggests!
The car is going to have the brakes overhauled and some suspension replacements. Yogi started that process of by painting the master brake reservoir before re-fitting it back into the engine.
Chris has been a busy boy getting back to bare metal in order to paint with the trusted Red Oxide paint as a base coat. The big problem he is having at the moment is the Waxoyl treatment. A hot air gun is being used as the first plan of attack to soften the goo up and then scrape it off. That’s all before the paint even starts to come off.
