Big & Small Swaps

Last week posted pics and an update of the ’66 Fastback gear box swap out. We have been busy with that this week and we are pretty much done. The Wilwood brakes have had some of the Yogi magic applied to them. Each brake line set up is different and unique to each car – just be cause he can. Nothing stupid looking of course, but the best route and best looking setup.

Some would say automotive works of art in fact.

The pedals take a little adjusting but are looking good now. We removed the steering column and gas pedal for easy access and fitting. While the parts are out we check the condition and replace what needs it while we are at it. A Mustang Maniac quality of service that goes without saying.

Down to the wheels;

Brake bleeding, road tests and final adjustments all done. It won’t be long before this little lady is back with the eagerly awaiting owner.

WebShop: Special Order Stock

Sometime our loyal customers ask us for parts that they need which we have to special order. The reason is because the parts are either scarce or out of stock at the suppliers, sometimes even we can’t always get them and are on back order. However, Adam has an ever increasing number of contacts that he visits on a regular basis while he is out in the States. Such an request came in when Lance was after some new ’69 park lights and upgrade kit. We don’t sell many of these lights and had sold the last of the stock a while ago. So the little black book, (it’s a large black book actually) came out and the hunt was on. A week later a small stock was tracked down, so Adam bought all they had, including some ’70 ones as well, all of which are now back in stock. Two weeks later the latest stock delivery arrived and those lights were in there too. Lance picked them up the same day and got to work with the swap out and upgrade. Lance has kindly sent us some pics of his replacement lights swap out comparison, not to bad in fact. Unfortunately Lance’s OCD got the better of him and the small swap out was completed!

Comparison of the old and new;

To make things a little better a pair of our bespoke LED bulbs as well, not just the standard white bulbs, but the flashing amber type too.

Thanks to Lance for the pictures and video.

Reconditioned 351 Windsor:

Another engine correct date code gone for the recondition works. This will be back in stock soon.

Not a cheap item this of course. It could be yours if you save up enough pocket money, you know where to come if you want one.

    This set of photos are so good that they are frame worthy and I am sure the actual work is as good.
