No Excuse

We have continued our work on tidying up the yard and the front entrance of the office car park. Hard work, but we got there in the end. More cars are coming into us for the pre season car shows and we have another poorly fitted parts car into us.

Customer Cars

Last week we showed a vehicle that had a LEED Brake Conversion that didn’t go well. Yogi had redone the rear brake lines and now was tidying up the fronts and the reservoir end of the kit.

The old fitting on the left as it came into us, Yogi rework on the right. It’s the little things that make the difference.

Vehicle 2

This vehicle came in for a steering box conversion and there was some other issues that needed addressing. The strut rod bushes and sway bar links were fitted wrong as below;

It doesn’t take much to follow instructions stamped on the product itself; ‘this side to rubber’. There should be no excuse to be honest for these basic errors. this is the basic handling of the vehicle, it’s not as though you are replacing a ash tray or something that doesn’t really matter.

Not only is this an issue for handling and premature wear and tear, this may well end up being an accident just waiting to happen. If this car was taken to a MOT centre and they saw this, then they should fail it, as it clearly states how they should be fitted. Yogi replaced the parts and fitted them correctly.

The next issue we had on this vehicle was the steering ball joint fell out as we removed it.

The new Borgeson kit fitted and ready for the UK spec tracking we give the cars after this conversion. You may notice that the power steering pump has our very own upgraded powder coated mounting bracket.

The cooling system does have the sought after option of a viscous radiator fan. This is a very efficient cooling fan with less engine drag and few more horses to unleash. But, in order for any cooling fan to work correctly you need to have a shroud fitted around it for the full benefit of drawing the air in over the radiator.


We often get things sent to us for which we are always grateful for so please keep them coming. Thanks to Craig T. for sending us this one.

Next week we have a bit of a spring clean going on to share with you, until then;

Stay Safe & Take Care!
