Cut & Paste

We have had a good response to last weeks post about the “T Park Lock” with a number of enquiries. We have sold a couple leaving only a couple left in stock for us. On with the cars as promised from last week where we have an update on our projects.

Customer Cars

Sheleanor is having a little attention as Yogi has started to put the lights back on the car and wire in some new ones.

With the main grill being fitted to the car along with the radiator fill plate the car immediately transforms.

Making everything disappear behind the dash and around the engine bay takes time to get right, the small attention to details that nobody seems to notice takes time, yet if they aren’t done, they become obvious. On the odd occasion, even what you envisage in your mind to look good, isn’t what actually looks good in practice. Sometimes you just have to try it, then come back to it the next day and just see if it looks and feels right.

We are just waiting for the lower spotlights to arrive so they can be fitted, all the wires and relays are in place so it should be a simple bolt in place and align. The back of the car has started to get some attention for the huge set of light bulb clusters now in place with the lenses to be fitted once we have test run the bulbs.

The top fill fuel cap is an iconic part like the scoops which needs to be positioned with care as the trunk opening to cap gap is cleared by ‘not a lot’ as Adam said at the time. Inside the trunk there is the extension tube to the fuel tank that needs to be routed carefully and securely to avoid any fuel leaks obviously.

The Mustang project with no nickname (yet).

Yogi has started to cut chunks out of the restoration and rebuild the patches. Both sides needed the same patching, not a case of cut & paste, more like cut and weld.

Inside before we can even get to the floors we needed to replace a large patch under the seat.


No sooner had we posted last week about our new stock of windscreens, we then sold one the next day. It was collected by the owner who was looking to fit it himself! That’s either a brave owner who knows what he is doing or he will be complaining next that the glass leaks. We shall wait and see!

Stay Safe & Take Care!
