Last week there was no post in case you were wondering as Adam and Yogi took time of for a spring break. With that in mind there wasn’t much was going on in the workshop, but the WebShop was still completing its orders as normal. So were back this week with an update on a car that will soon be back its owner and is the Park & Pic this week.
Park & Pic
The Pear is star of the post this week, a worthy lead story too.
Do you remember this little lady that was in need of some TLC?
Well, the owner came down to take a look over his restored car and Adam took Ian (the owner of this lovely car) out in her for little shake down road test.
Here is Ian with his car looking pleased with his lady. A lot of work went into this project, but it was worth it and will last a good while longer.
We’re not 100% finished with the car yet, but hopefully some time this week Ian can driver her back home where she can be pampered again. A real pleasure to work on such a big project and see these stunning results.
Thanks Ian for letting us post her up for you. 🙂
We have coupe in with us for some replacement brakes both front and rear, replace some brake lines, some new spring perches. The car wasn’t handling or stopping to good.
The rear brakes when we inspected them had the shoes on the wrong way round.
We will get these cleaned up and sorted out to their correct configuration. The rear brake lines across the axle were in a bad way so Yogi ripped those off.
Then a little Yogi magic creates a new set of lines, distribution block and flexible hoses.
While the old front brakes were off it makes it easier to swap out the worn spring perches that were in a pretty bad way. We have our own design spring compressor that can safely lift the springs to allow us to work on the perches without a full strip down. The perches were rusted in place and took a little effort to get them out, with a little know how they were soon out ready for the new ones.
With them out it’s clearly visible to see that the bushes were shot to pieces on both sides.
The new ones will improve the ride somewhat and track the properly going down the road like it should do.
We have the front brakes to complete, a dash replacement and upgrade along with a couple of other little bits that we will show you next week.
We have had a delivery of an exhaust kit or two earlier this week, no sooner had we unwrapped the pallet when we took one to a ready and waiting ’65 coupe recipient. These exhaust kits are are for the ’64 – ’70 years and these pipes have a 2″ bore.
We have uploaded a quick video on our YouTube channel as well to let you hear what they sound like. This setup are not as loud as aggressive as some other makes we stock, but these pipes will still give you that classic V8 Mustang burble for a nice relaxed cruise.
Stay Safe & Take Care!
