We would like to start with a big thank you for all the well wishes for Jason and his bride Pamela on their wedding, it was much appreciated. Although the suggestion that Adam should wear his suit to work on the cars won’t be happening we’re sad to inform you. But, thanks for the idea though.
We are getting ready for the next customer to have their pride and joy in our sacred Mustang Sanctuary, where all good things happen to Mustangs. On a side note, in all the years we have been operating, we have only ever seen a couple of cars go to scrap. Everything else we have saved. We have even built a car from just the convertible soft top storage panel, remember the Onion?
What we had to start with;
This was the only original main part that was saved!
The rest of the car being built from just that part!
So what’s the rare sight? That’s our panel shop being empty! The last occupant being ‘The Pear’.
We have a couple of bits still in there which have been sprayed up for our very own resto mod project, this unusual design of our own axle being a part of that project.
The next car in here may end up having the underside done, floor panels, arches, chassis legs etc. We will give it a nick name, and post the pictures of that restoration project for you. Watch this space for those updates.
We have a new bit of equipment for our dry storage solution.
Response to Adam’s advice?
Adam has received plenty of emails once we let it slip that we have a stock of sheet metal stored in the yard. As we pointed out last week that requests for such sheet metal, body panels etc. will be vetted before being sold. We even had an email from somebody in the trade who was quite irate that we removed the sheet metal from the WebShop trade area. He even suggested that it should be his priority to buy them as he was trade. Well his account is a small account and so was the attention span we gave to his email to be honest.
Then on the other hand, we had plenty of messages to say thanks for the advice and have ordered their metal. One or two have even found out that the panels are on back order from the big suppliers in USA which are often mentioned in the Mustang Forums on where to buy stuff. We have even had emails from the USA to ask for a couple of our sheet metal bits!
A short post this week as we have been trying to tidy the yard and get the panel shop ready for the next little lady.
