Getting Into Gear

This week we have finished a couple of customer cars as well as doing some more work on our own shop truck Ranchero. We’re pleased to have had some new stock which has been on back order and unavailable for a couple of years now.

Park & Pic

We have completed a LEED Brake refit to a ’64 1/2 Coupe that had some issues after a DIY brake kit fitting.

Those with a sharp eye will have noticed that this little lady has had some modern Mustang wheels fitted and some small wheel spacers as the customer requested. It’s not very common to see new wheels on a Classic Mustang, but it can be done.

This was the initial installation of brake lines which we ended up replacing.

These pics are the completed brake lines from Yogi, it’s all very subtle of course. But, if you don’t notice it straight away, then we have done our job properly to blend in the new parts in with the car for a natural stock look.

Customer Cars

Another loyal customer had started to get some gearbox issues and asked us if we could help him. We agreed and got his complete gearbox reconditioned with new parts for him by our very own specialist engineers.

The original gears were worn and the bearings had seen better days, but everything had lasted quite well considering the age and use of the gearbox.

Here are some close ups of the old gears and worn teeth.

Our Cars

Our 1965 Ranchero has now had the underside completed sealed in red oxide, then proper seam sealer followed by a couple of coats of our own recipe for the black underseal.

We shall the car back up the right way this week for some more prep work.


We are pleased to say that these wheel studs are now back in stock here after being unavailable for a few years. We found them at the bottom of this large randomly packed delivery box.

We are pleased to have our consignment of ‘heated’ front ’64 to ’68 clear windscreens here. This batch has been allocated to a number of customers and we should have them listed in stock soon after we have checked them for any damage.

Another modern invention which is a welcome addition to these older Mustangs especially in the UK climate which is mostly cold and damp.

Stay Safe & Take Care!
