Mods and Rockers

It’s midweek and time is dragging. It seems like somebody has decided that each second will in fact last one minute. I have asked my colleagues at work “is time dragging or is it me?” the response was a resounding “it’s dragging”. I have never understood this and would love to know why we think that. Yet when we get to the weekend the time flies and before I know it’s back to work. Any ideas why this is?

This weekend I am hoping to get the springs for my shoe connection springs for the rear brakes, if I can then I will put the silicon brake fluid in and see if I get a peddle or not, that will be a big milestone for me. If I don’t get the springs, it will be bodywork time and the rockers will go back in that I have just sprayed. The rockers should be Ford Blue I know that, but I don’t want them Ford blue, I want shiny metal or have Mustang Racing all over them. As my rockers were rusty again, I decided to mod them with a little silver paint to match the brake booster. This is a temporary measure so I didn’t spend too much time on the covers and in fact I was pretty pleased with how they came out. I have as promised uploaded the photos for the rocker covers work. They can be found in the Photos section under Engine Bay, or, you can click here for the quick link to see them. I will update the photo’s again once I have them in the car to see what they look like. What does anybody think, will the paint last? Do they look stupid or a waste of my time? Better than rusty looking covers?

About One man and his Mustang

I'm just a man with a Classic 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe and a collection of tools that just keeps getting bigger in order that I could do the job right. When I first started this blog this is what I wrote: I had bought a project car, that had been neglected, set fire to, rusted and abused. As a result of that she needed a bare metal strip down, a nut and bolt restoration. Four and a half years later the car was completed, on the road and shown at the UK's premier Classic Car Show, everything that was done to that car is documented here. I now have the privilege to drive one of America's most recognised cars and a true Icon, the Ford Mustang. I'm still sane after the blood, sweat and tears, so would I do it again? Oh yes!

    They are slick, shiny, and sexy. Sexy in my car world means somebody somewhere is so going to be looking at me! And by me, I mean my car parts… Keep up the great work.

      Hi Debbie,
      Thanks for the comment, I was well chuffed with how they came out. Like you say part of it is to show the car off and hopefully like what you do to it. I guess I am putting my own mark on it. Should look “sexy” when they are on, I will post a pic of the finished efforts.
