A Comet Has Landed

Everybody knows about the Bermuda Triangle so we would like to propose the UK’s alternative, the “Hertfordshire Hexagon”. We mention this little fact because we walked into the workshop and there it was, something had appeared out of nowhere, we don’t even know when it arrived. Unlike the Bermuda Triangle that makes thing disappear, we seem to gain cars!

We didn’t see a truck with a car on it arrive, so this must have driven in at least from the main gates to the workshop.

We caught up with Adam and asked him about the car, his response? ‘I don’t know what you’re talkin’ about laughing as he was walking away’.

Of course we know it’s Adam’s new toy, for what purpose we don’t know, yet. However this Mercury Comet is a solid little car. Cosmetically not to bad and she still sports the original paint. It does need a little loving inside, but this is a nice car. When we find out more, we will obviously let you know too.

Customer Cars

An old friend was back with us for some work due to some overzealous MOT test centre. The car was taken out of winter storage and taken to an MOT. The first thing they picked up on was indicators. They were not amber as the EU rules dictate.

Here we can see the lights being taken out ready for the LEDs.

Unfortunately due to the Shelby set of rear lights this turns out to be a little more expensive than usual due to the shear size of the lights.

We do of course stock a EU compliant set of LEDs which instantly sorts the problem out and it just so happens it was our last set in stock until we get some more in, soon hopefully. Our LEDs are super easy to fit and very neat no too. Link to the Shelby LED light kit here.

The camera never really pays justice to the amber lights but they are bright and full length of the cluster. The red drive and brake lights are all separate and also the full length of the cluster.

We do have a a video uploaded to our YouTube Chanel here or watch the video here for now.


We have had a number of enquiries from a couple of posts ago about our seat rail extenders. We are just waiting for the next batch to arrive then they will appear on our WebShop. We wasn’t expecting the amount of interest they have already generated to be honest.

Vicious Rumours!

We have heard through the grapevine that “Mustang Maniac is winding down”. We can categorically deny this rumour. What we can work is that somebody has not been able to buy products from us due to them being a messer and having the “C” button applied to their name. We also cross check the postal address as well by the way. This person is obviously disgruntled with not being able to buy from us so thinks we are running down.

NOPE – we are just dropping the people who aren’t even our customers that just want our information and buy elsewhere as we are ‘to expensive.’ We also stopping sales to some customers that are abusing our free postage offer as well.

Don’t believe what you hear out there.

Trust us, our WebShop still has strong sales and we have even seen a year on year increase of sales due to the home projects out there being helped along by the dreaded Covid.

Stay Safe & Take Care!

  1. Somebody is trying to cause cause trouble by the sound of it. What a load of sad individuals. Perhaps you should sue them.
    That is a huge set of LED lights and they look great.
    Good work guys.

  3. That Mercury Comet is so sweet. Be fun to get it A1 mechanically, but leave the aged patina on it aesthetically…
