Old Meets The New

Yesterday we posted up that Royal Fail were on strike and and any purchases made could be delayed as a result. Thanks for a couple of messages saying they understand if there could be delays, that’s always awesome to know the customer has read our updates. However on our Facebook page we had a response from somebody troll who could only muster up the words “F… off Mustang Maniac”. We’re not sure what prompted that response, but keyboard warriors of this type are rarely helpful or have anything intelligent to say. We enjoyed adding that person’s details to the “C” button who will never be able purchase from us. Oh, he’s also been blocked from our Facebook pages.

Park & Pic

Eleanor has come to visit us with an engine problem. Quite what it is we don’t know for sure, but this is a very poorly sounding lady.

This is still a very pretty and iconic car that just doesn’t age.

Customer Cars

We have been busy finishing up a sheet metal rebuild for a 67 fastback. We are only fitting the metal as the car will be taken away to finish up for paint.

We we wanted to show was the gaps of the sheet metal. What we have here is 1967 meets 2022 in black, and all 1967 in green.

We hope that this will stop a few people moaning that the panels don’t fit, they do. You just have to know what you are doing. Once the panels are filled, prepped and painted there will be no difference between the new and the old to look at.

The welding was fully completed and then painted with red lead paint before the outer panels are fitted.

The rest of the panels here have been spot welded into place, just like the originals.

With all the panels welded or braised into place just like they were in the day, we could then paint everything that is exposed to the elements in red lead. This is how the cars were completed at the time underneath.

The only remaining finishing touches are to apply the seam sealer, then this little lady is ready to be taken away ready for the next steps.

That’s another Mustang saved and soon to be on the road.

Work Shop

Adam has asked us to add this little section as he is getting a lot of enquiries about it. For customers that use our services, we do indeed offer and exchange parts service. This works on the basis that if an item needs to be replaced, we take the old one and replace it with a rebuilt one. We do not offer this service as a over the counter purchase. We fit the parts in our workshops in order to offer this facility. Hope that clears up a lot of the queries.

Some of the parts we are swapping out, engines, heads, diff, gearboxes etc.

Stay Safe & Take Care!

    • Thanks, We try our best. You are absolutely right, back in the day these cars were pretty much thrown together and gaps were not that important. Some purists don’t even like perfect gaps as that’s not how they were. But if we can make them better we can make people happy with the best we can get them.
