Away She Goes

At the beginning of the year we said we wanted to try and post some more videos and last week we did just that. The new video was to demonstrate our new stock of the Precision exhaust kits we now have in stock. The upshot of the video was that we had lots of views, a number enquiries about the kit and we sold a few after they heard the sound on the video. We will also take on board that we should have made the video a bit longer. It has been noted and we will try to make sure that’s the case going forward. Thanks for the feedback.

Customer Cars

The Pear was last week’s Park & Pic feature and we mentioned we needed a couple of tiny little tweaks which were completed not problem at all. We were able to complete a full detail on the car before Ian the owner came to pick her up to take her back home.

Here we say goodbye to “The Pear” with Ian in the driving seat, looks like another happy customer driving away from Mustang Maniac’s yard. 😃

You can’t buy smiles like that, it’s what makes all our job worthwhile.

’67 Updates

On another ’67 we have in with us for some loving where we needed to replace the dash gauges as the originals had seen better days and was a prime candidate to get the LED bulb update while we had the dash out.

The black dials were swapped out with the more modern white dials which compliments the brushed aluminium look of the dash with its new chrome. We love this look, it’s not everybody’s taste and we get that, but it’s a very clean and fresh look well worth the effort.

The modern blue LEDs look amazing in this white chrome combination.

On the outside we have a billet aerial fitted, again a modern take on old technology.

Billet fuel cap for a subtle difference denoting the model of vehicle not just the make and brand.

Under the hood we replaced the old fuel line and filter with a Yogi special custom line. The filter has now been placed much lower down and earlier in the fuel line as it comes into the engine bay.

The old school T handle valve cover fasteners were looking a little cluttered and tired, they were replaced with a nice set of ARP bolts for a much nicer look and more secure than the T handles that tended to vibrate loose.

Under the car, off came the old rotted out cherry bomb boxes and pipes. They were replaced with one of our off the shelf exhaust systems (along with the corresponding hanger kit), were fitted for a much more natural sounding Mustang rumble in their place.

Some cosmetic, some functional updates, then the exhaust to improve the drive of the car. A little tune up of the carb for the new exhaust and fuel line, after which she runs much better now.

NOTE: We get asked (alot) if the exhaust hanger kit is really needed as its expensive. The answer of course is no you don’t need it, but we seriously recommend you do have it for two reasons. 1) it will fit properly without adjustments. 2) it will save you a huge amount of time and frustration.

WebShop

As we are partners with Walker we have had some more parts arrive with even more choice for our customers. Here we have a the plug lead set that Adam has been checking. We ordered the one or two for stock purposes.

A Little Teaser!

‘Mach -Enos’. What’s that all about?

Adam has little project and we will reveal all soon. 😉

Stay Safe & Take Care!

    Great post as always. I agree them T handle rocker cover fasteners seem like a good idea at the time but get in the way and looks too cluttered. I got to ask, why has that ’67 got a ’64 plate on it? 🤔
