Carpet Riddle – Solved

As you read this Adam will be a good few thousand feet in the air on his way to the USA and looking forward to the SEMA 2019 show. Before he left he done a few little videos for us about his 2016 ‘Enos 350’ spec Mustang which will be going on YouTube very soon, but we grabbed it first straight out the editing suite for the blog. Speaking of videos we start with a serious clip on how not to do an upgrade yourself!

Customers Cars

There is so much you can do to Mustangs to improve their look in the wheel area; beauty rings, rim swap outs, alloy wheels, white letter tyres, roll the arches, tub them etc. One of those tweaks is the addition of wheel spacers. Readily available with various thicknesses from 3mm to 5mm which we also stock. Fitted correctly with the correct studs and nuts to hold the wheels in place, they don’t pose a problem and can change the look of a car. However, if you don’t know what you are doing it can be dangerous and cause serious issues with the car stability. This couple of second snippet of video shows you what we mean!

Nothing else needs to be said. If you’re not sure about it, let the professionals do it.

Our Engines

Somebody emailed Adam a while ago when we were talking about our new stocked engines. He was quite blunt about engine rebuilds thinking that we sort of made it up about our range of date correct stock! Adam’s response?

‘Nahh mate, – we ain’t got no engines, just like you say’

There’s no strokers, no 351 Clevelands or Windsors, no big block anything, no inline 6s or custom built engines anywhere! We don’t have any 302 crate motors either come to think of it. 😉

Those who know Adam also know that he has engines, gearboxes, heads, blocks etc. stashed all over the place, these finished examples were stored here just for now while the space was made in the engine shed for the new addition or two.


Mustang Maniac is now getting much more supplies for a lot of the newer mustangs in stock which has swelled enormously as a result. As we like to test the parts ourselves before we sell them, Adam fitted his new Smoked Lens 2016-2018 LED rear lamp swap out. He filmed it all on his own at the time. This video will be up on YouTube soon. But, we have it here first:

Shelby Tags

A new stock item has arrived for the GT350 Shelbys. These door tags look amazing and just what you need for that full restoration.

Email for further information as these haven’t been added to the WebShop yet.

Mystery of the horse carpet – Solved!

We posted that we couldn’t work out how the Mustang horse carpet came into Adam’s stock pile of memorabilia. Well we now know thanks to an email and a photo.

This was taken at he Mustang Owners Club of Great Britain’s stand at the Birmingham NEC a number of years ago. It being the horse carpet was raffled of as a prize. The person who won the carpet later had a conversation with Adam where the carpet exchanged hands. It was forgotten all about until space was made to store some engines (that we don’t have) on a temporary basis. We still don’t know what to do with it.

Next week may not be a standard weekend blog, but there may be some SEMA posts though. We will just have to wait and see how it all pans out.
