Had this little gem in awhile back to upgrade those 30k mile worn out seats 😉 The upgrade was a nice set of hardback sport seats…..which has now ruined the owner from ever being able to sit in another set of seats ever! A really nice speed yellow C2S Old seats vs the sport seats. And one side done. 2nd verse, other side same as the first! These sport seats are getting super rare to find, and when you do, …

Wes got the interior handled on the 46 Ford Business coupe a couple of weeks ago. Over the years it had some speakers installed in the back, a little shag carpet here and there, and just aged interior in general. New floor rubber and shiny new mats 🙂 Rear speaker holes removed and recarpeted The blue shag carpet that was installed was pretty bad, so he got that taken care of and looking sharp! New tires installed and she is …

After a much better year running M030 brakes on the race car, they still weren’t where I was comfortable with. I was still getting some brake fade after running them hard, and while they stopping power was ok, it still wasn’t up to my standards, so I wanted to get that addressed. I found a deal on a lot of brembo calipers on ebay. It just so happened that a full set of GT3 calipers were in there. GT3 calipers …

Had an interesting project the other day come in on an Audi. Many of the audi’s now are using a multi media interface to control the radio/nav/etc. They place them down around the gear shift lever and also next to the cup holders. This MMI had a protein shake spilled into it, and after everything dried, a bunch of the buttons were no longer working. Once you get it out of the car, it is pretty easy to disassemble down …

This car came in under pretty bad shape. It has been bought and sold and bought and sold we think because it has had a major running issue. It would not move under it’s own power. Cam codes and misfires on 1 bank. After further investigation we are pretty sure this car was highly modified, then put back to stock after something bad happened with the engine. A few owners have tried to get it running, but nothing has come …

“It’s just a car.” A quote often repeated by Tom Magliozzi. I find myself repeating this quote many times a week to customers. There is no doubt, we are here because we love Porsches, and we love working on them, we love driving them, some people even love washing them….but in the end it is just a car. Often times Tom would say that if money can fix it, then it isn’t a problem. Just think about that for a …

These have been back burner projects, but over the last month I was able to get the little white 70 finished for Valerie. This is a 72HK1 that I backdated to a 3 speed semi auto (still shift, but no clutch lever to use) to make it easier for Val to ride. The motor is actually the original motor off the orange CT70. Everything came out great! It is really a fun little bike to ride! Powdercoated frame white, along …

The NASA event at the KS speedway claimed a clutch in this cayman 🙂 These clutches are pretty frail in general, then a little extra added excitement when shifting and pow they fail! The clutch failed in a way that it blew apart the slave cylinder and jammed things up a bit. Since we were in there, I decided to change out the gear oil as well to make sure we didn’t have any metal in the transmission. All was …

Had this BMW come in with a bunch of warning lights and an overheating issue. BMW’s have always been known for their poor cooling systems, but even after going to an electric cooling pump, they still have issues! Pulling out the old thermostat and behind it the waterpump. You always want to replace these together. And the old pump out of the car. The hoses are a real bear to get the hoses off with the positioning of the clamps. …

Had this little 930 come through the shop last week as the throw out bearing was making a horrible racket. After further investigation, I found the clutch cable was too tight, which likely caused early failure of the bearing. The car also would not go into reverse, which is pretty commonly caused by blown bearings in the shift coupler. As you can see here, they are pretty much non existent. And out of the car. Knocking out what was left …
