To Patch Or Not To Patch?

Carrying on from last week we finished most of what we wanted on the LAR trucks and getting our new additions to the fleet fixed up with our livery ready for the road. Once we were at that stage Yogi was was then working on another truck, our own ’65 Ford Ranchero shop truck.

’65 Ranchero

The bed of the truck was fabricated and painted up to good as new. That left the floor pan. We were thinking a fabricated patch as the dreaded rust worm wasn’t that bad. To save time we went to our copious stores and pulled out full floor pan and be done with it.

Yogi removed the old floor pan and put it on the floor, not the skip. Simple reason being that we will at some point start another Ranchero project where we know the floors are beyond repair and this floor will do just fine for what we have in mind.

That means we may end up patching this old floor which looks worse than it is, ready for when we need it.

This type of repair can be done as and when we want or just to fill a gap in between customer cars.


We had another batch of our bespoke made ’64 – ’70 Front and Rear adjustable SPAX shocks arrive. Two sets were on back order and have already been shipped out, the others sets have gone into stock. These can be found on our ‘Mustang Maniac Products‘ section. These contain the full two year warranty, the only difference that ours are in a a unique red powder coating.

Stay Safe & Take Care!
