Sitting Pretty

Another week gone by and we now slowly wander into the second half of the year. We have got our internal little project back out again and Yogi has a few little mods up his sleeve on this one.

Our Cars:

Project resto-mod has been given a seat tweak. The person who will be driving her is tall and wanted to have that little bit of extra headroom. The bodywork has been prepped, with initial base fillers and undercoats. The hood we have here is the last of our own design for a bespoke, handmade, custom trio batch just for us at Mustang Maniac.

The GT500 moulds we have produced the side intakes and the quarter end caps.

The Fenders have now been coated on the inside ready for fitting.

The trunk has the GT500 duck tail as well made from our own moulds.

The front valance and bumpers are going to de-chromed and integral part of the bodywork.

Doors have been filled and primed ready for the proper rubbing down and undercoats.

The inside of the car has had the seat platforms removed and the floors been welded up for the smooth finish.

The replacement seat mounts and the floor pan are painted with red-oxide for protection before they are welded into place.

The engine bay has a few little updates, such a the firewall blank off, shock tower and the inner fender mods.

We will bring more on this as we progress. We have some exciting ideas on this car that haven’t been seen before. 🙂

Customer Cars:

During the last post we mentioned that the selective additional service we offer is here again. This lady needed a service, new water pump, new hoses, brake lines, exhaust and tyres.

The bit that most people want to see is the transformation of a lovely original car into a bit more of a show car.

The biggest transformation is probably under the hood.

Our very own Classic Car valet was pleased with the results. You can’t see much on the paintwork, but it was quite dull and rough. With a lot of expertise and know how he made the owner of this car smile before he even took it for a test drive after the work.

We predicted after the last post about these little boosts to the cars that we would have somebody ask us. Yep, two days later an email to ask us if we could make an exception for their car if they bought it down to us. No work was to be done on the car, just to give it a detail! Adam didn’t answer the email – he just hit the “C” button!

Keep safe and take care.
