Hangin’ Around

Things are starting to liven up a little in the work shops and we have a few scheduled customer cars in. The majority being they get a service, the Mustang Maniac magic once over before the car show season starts. Then the off to the MOT which we always recommend, even though by UK law says that cars over forty years old don’t need it. You really should.

Customer Cars

Lurking in the shadow is this ’67 that needed some hood hinges. Getting these right can be an awkward job as the gaps can be way out from the cowl end to the bumper end when shut. The worst part is where we have seen the fender positions altered try and help out when only the hinges have been changed.

This little lady has had some electric fans fitted to a custom radiator as well. More often than not, this can give a few more horses to the power output as there is no fan blades causing parasitic drag on the water pump. Also you could do some clever things with the fan cut in curves for the cooling too.


We promised last week that we would show you the Dynamic C4 transmission Valve Bodies and that is exactly what we are going to do. They come into us well wrapped with some transmission fluid within the wrapping. The reason being they are all dyno tested to make sure they work exactly as they should. Adam is here unwrapping them.

There are variations of dates for those who want date correct or Green Dot or Non Green Dot depending on the model of car/gearbox of course. These valves are the ‘brains’ of the gearbox, the seals and machined parts have to be right or you get all sorts of shifting problems. That’s why they get tested on a dyno.

Borgeson Bracket – upgraded

We have heard of the Borgeson power steering bracket cracking on some forums. We took that problem away and designed our own 12mm bracket and had it powder coated to stop that from happening.

It’s not an officially on the WebShop just yet, but if you are interested in an upgrade drop Adam an email. We plan on using these for our own projects going forward.

We have had a delivery of some prefabricated transmission lines with us this week. They have been given a new place to hang out of the way so they don’t get damaged.

Last week we have had a number of enquiries about the Autolite and Rotunda oil filters, the later of which is now out of stock.

We even had a couple of people email us ‘trying it on’ by asking us if they could have these concours correct filter(s) at the same price as the standard ones, or pay just a little bit extra. Really? Adam didn’t even respond to those emails to be honest. We could hear him uttering a few comments from the packaging room. (If you know, then you know!)

Stay Safe & Take Care!
