We have a lot of project work requests in at the moment and we have had to be quite selective about the type of work that we will undertake. We are seeing more and more of the ‘fix this restoration that somebody else has managed to mess up’ scenario. As a result of us being selective we have been moaned at for those decisions. We will of course start and finish a project we are tasked with from the beginning because we know our work is top quality. But, for us to keep putting right other people’s issues, it’s not what we are about. The end project can end up not being exactly how we would like it to be, that alone is pretty disheartening for us who have a real passion for these beautiful cars. We are not in it to make a fast buck, we do it because we care. To put right some of the ‘bigger problems’ we would need to do lots of work, and that costs money in order to get the customer what they wanted in the first place. As the money had been wasted elsewhere to start with, there is little in the pot for us to fix the broken as it were. Some cars we just don’t want to put our name to them, because we are proud people. We hope you understand our decisions on some of the work we could and will turn away in the future.
The SPS coupe we had been working on has now left the yard. We were tasked with replacing the floor pans and the front end of the car where we needed to. The rear was undertaken elsewhere and we haven’t much to do with that end of her. The car was taken to her next stage in the restoration process, paint. The transportation was provided courtesy of LAR Recovery with a maiden trip of their new truck.
This is an amazing photo, it shows two classic Fords, one glistening away looking pretty cool, the other a shell that needs more body work prep in order to paint, but she too will look like that when she comes out in her new colours.
The Secret Project Car
One-off, bespoke hand-crafted project.
Adam has secretly moved a shell that he has had lying around at the end of last year and moved it in a workshop and locked the doors. We have seen him go into his workshop and not come out for a few hours at a time at the weekends and late into the evenings. We have not been told who this is for, where it is going or anything about it in fact. Except we see a little sign stuck on it that said ‘One off, bespoke hand-crafted’. Adam knows that we know it’s there. All we can say is we have grabbed a few pictures of it. We will be updating you on the car, as and when we sneak in for a little look. 😉 When we ask Adam about it we get “It’s a secret. It’s one-off, bespoke hand-crafted project”.
Well the secret is out now and we are looking forward to seeing this little lady take shape. We can’t tell you anymore, because we simply don’t know, so watch this space!!
A few funny pics.
After last weeks post about the poor workmanship, we had a few memes sent to us all based on a similar theme, a couple we can put on a family orientated website, some we definitely can’t! Thanks for the pics, keep them coming we enjoy them.
That sort of says it all really.
We finish with a request!
We have been inundated with requests asking if there are any ‘dirty’ pics of Yogi. Ok, it was one request, we can’t be sure, but we have a sneaky suspicion that it was Yogi’s wife.
So here it is – a dirty Yogi
Another pic for the Yogi Fan Club 😀
