This week we have had quite a few visitors to collect their products from our WebShop headquarters. The lockdown has eased in the UK and virtually all our customers still were respectful of social distancing and wearing masks. Thank you to all our customers for respecting our rules.
The fine weather over the last week or so has seen a lot of our service parts and sundries flying of the shelves. We suspect it’s down to the the start of the car shows and owners just wanting to get out in their treasured possessions. Many of those cars were given a run to our stores from well over an hour away, just because they could. It was great to see the familiar faces again.
‘The Pear’ has finished the underseal treatment stage now and Yogi has been wearing his mask in the body shop on his own! Yep his favourite type of mask;
We had to post this us to keep the ‘Yogi Fan Club’ happy as we were asked about him when a couple of customers picked up some of their parts.
The ‘Pear’s’ fenders were carefully removed from the chassis and stored well out of harms way. The mask was on, suited up, sounds were cranked up on the boom box and Yogi got to work on the engine bay’s paint, an etch base to start with.
A couple of undercoats and primer;
Then a couple of top coats of satin black, inside and underneath to blend in with the underseal.
We will soon be at a stage to start assembly and of course we will show the progress as we go along.
In between paint and drying Yogi has been building other things, engines! These V8’s been + 0.30 over and an I6 were rebuilt and prepared for our stock. Yep – more engines gone into stock. Not built to order as we normally do, but these engines are purely for Adam’s stock!
Fully rebuilt I6’s are not that common, but here is one just sitting pretty.
Then just a couple of his V8’s hanging around! Is this just not Petrol Head Heaven?
All finished and waiting to be wrapped up safe then stored with the other engines ready for sale, straight of the shelf! How many other Mustang Suppliers can boast that? Not just one engine, but a choice of engines and specs. Long block, short blocks, rollers, stock rollers, HiPo, date coded heads, aluminium heads, cams, pistons etc. etc.
These may look like scrap, but all of these will be restored to factory condition and sit in storage, just be cause we can.
Everything in for sale in our yard for the right price. If you want some of these rare items be prepared to get your wallet out – remember Adam doesn’t barter down on the prices that he wants, unless you bribe him with copious amounts of Jaffa cakes. 😉 (Those who know, know!)
