Spring Clean

This week we have had a Spring clean and a move around of some cars as a customer had asked for his car to come out of our storage ready for the car show season. Not a quite a barn find, but we were excited to see this lady out into the sun shine again. As Adam was moving the cars around he wanted to drive one a bit more, so that also got her first bubble bath of the year.

Park & Pic

The first Park & Pic of the year goes to this stunning ’67 Convertible which was also known as ‘The Onion’ when we were restoring it. This stock looking car has some amazing (resto) mods fitted, transmission, suspension, EFI, part digital dash, radio etc.

Customer Cars

This ’67 fast back was a little dusty after being in our storage for a fair while, so she was going to get the full Mustang Maniac valet service. With dust laying on the car there is no way this could start with a normal two bucket method hand wash. We started the process with our own secret formula snow foam to loosen the dirt before the proper hand wash. Once clean and dried we applied a layer of our own wax protection to make her properly shine again.

After our valet service? You tell us…

Our Cars

The ’65 Ranchero has had the new floor welded into place now. We often hear that people moan about the fit of the sheet metal (if you can get some that is), but we have never had a problem. Sometimes a little fettling maybe, but certainly nothing to stop a project.

We got the floor out the box and made a test fit where Yogi marked up where the chassis legs and brace were to go.

With the protective coating removed ready for the welds we could start to spot weld in place just like they were from the factory. Then some full on welding around the edges.

Once all the welding is done and ground down smooth, we can then start the seam sealer process.

Shelby KR

As we said at the beginning, Adam had to move his much loved KR in order to get the customer’s car out from storage. It too was dusty from storage and needed a clean. As the valet gear was out, we gave this little lady some special Mustang Maniac valet TLC. The before and after, side by side shots looks amazing. This car really has to be seen to be believed, it sounds and drives as good as it looks!

We have an interesting little project on the go to create our own version of something that has gone out of print. The prototypes are looking good so all being well we will have these for sale in the WebShop soon. Watch this space. 🙂

Stay Safe & Take Care!

    Where did Yogi learn those metalwork skills? That is not O level handicraft! Amazing.

    • Hi, Yogi was working with his dad from the age of 10 years old in the garage working on cars. He then honed his skills while he owned his own body shop. He can panel beat, paint spray, welding in fact anything related to building cars. He’s a talented guy.
