Back She Goes

Last week posted the ’66 coupe daily runner being returned to us after the repair coat of paint. One of the last things we do is a geo setup. The car is aligned up to our very own parameters specifically for our UK roads. Once the car is dialled in we then take her for a little drive to make sure all is good with the car. We’re pleased to say that although the damage looked horrendous on first instance, luckily it didn’t cause any structural damage and stability of the car.

The car was loaded onto our covered transport and strapped down safely ready for her journey back to the owners. Being a covered transport it will mean that the car is delivered in the best possible condition at the final destination. The other bonus is the big reveal of the repaired car at the other end when the customer can see her back to her former glory.

We have mixed emotions when the cars leave us. Delighted they can go back to the owner, but sad they leave us, as that car becomes part of our DNA, if that makes sense?

Our Cars

The “Wolf” has taken another forward with the performance slot and drilled brakes on the front being fitted for superior stopping power.

The steering rack has been fitted with top quality, the fittings are just too good to be under the car.

The car is obviously going to have the upgraded Borgeson power steering kit which will give a modern day car driving experience.

The interior has had the heater matrix fitted and the pipework passed into the engine bay.

The sound proofing is often overlooked for the firewall, but it does make a difference inside the cabin. The pedals and brake mountings are then bolted into place.

An Idea!

We have our Park & Pic segment which is well established on our blog. We’re wondering if we could turn it up a notch with you our readers and customers. Would you like to send us a picture of your car maybe with yourself or family with the car and a little paragraph about the history of the car, did we work on it? Do you have any tips to share with other owners? We could give you your fifteen minutes of fame. If we get enough interest we could do the little article every couple of weeks or once a month. If you think this is a good idea then let us know.

The idea was given to us by a customer who spotted these little ladies in our newly refurbished car park to the offices and our WebShop.

The customer later told us, “I would love to know the story behind those cars.”

Stay Safe & Take Care!

    This piqued my interest—without going into any trade secrets, can you tell me how you set up the alignment differently for UK roads?

    • Hi, The original settings were for cross ply tyres. Also our roads are not as flat as theirs so camber comes into play as part of it. There was plenty of trial and error to start with and Like the secret recipe for Coke we guard it well. We have had so many people ask us for the settings even other Mustang “specialists”. Good question though. Thanks.

  2. I think the spot light on the cars is a great idea. I’m in, I hope others want it too.
