I had a thought and I will put this thought out there to see if I am the only one who thinks like this. My Mustang dash area has been butchered by the bloke who owned it before me by cutting a bigger hole for a new style radio. The question is do people listen to the radio in their classic cars, or do they listen to the music of a glorious v8 or v12 thundering down the road? I will of course put an original style radio back in the gap via a repair panel that has to be cut back into the dash, I doubt I will even care if it works or not. The thing is that I imagine myself with the window down, the wind in my hair and the growl of a small block 289ci in my ears.
Any thoughts, or am I just on my own planet Mustang, all sad and alone?
Over the weekend I was pretty busy and only able to do a little bit of work on the car Sunday afternoon. The main thing I wanted to do was to try out the new product I just had delivered. The product is exclusive to Frost and it’s called “Liquid Wrap”. I was interested in this as a product in order to protect the restoration I have already done. The first thing I was going to protect was a chrome bumper as it is just hanging on my garage wall at the moment. The product Is a spray that dries to a rubber coating after a few layers, recommended about five or six. I tried it and I like it. I was sceptical at first but this rubber is unique as the layer can be peeled of at any time. I have done a review of the product under Reviews – Consumables – Frost’s Liquid wrap. I also posted a video in my YouTube Channel as well.
It’s been a busy weekend and a productive weekend at the same time, I don’t get to many of those to be fair. I have made space back in the man cave as the fenders have gone back on the car., Ok, so they are not aligned up yet properly though as I want some nice new bolts to go in the top and the hood rubbers I also need. I have managed to treat the Bumper Stone Guard on the inside (part 1), and completed a nice power tool review. But first,
I need some help:
Yesterday when I put the fenders back on I noticed a little bit of surface rust creeping back onto the top of my rocker covers, I intend to replace these with chrome ones anyway but for now I wanted to keep the natural buffed steel look. Does anybody have any ideas on how to seal them from the elements and keep the natural look? If so can you give me some ideas on the forum pages or click here for the hyper link to go straight there.
My manager has been saying that I have needed help for well over a year now, *shakes head* LoL.
Thanks for that Alli. 😀
Anybody got any hangover cures? If so go to the Forums and Discussions page to leave me some tips or others who may need them this Christmas! Or click on the link here for hyper link straight there.
I have published a tool review of the Dewalt Orbital Sander D26453 which is a really great piece of kit. Check out the review here or go to the tools review section.
Last but not least
I have tweaked a few little bits on the blog too,I have put the Forum and discussions link at the top next to the “home” button. Hopefully that will make it easier to get to the sister site.
They say make hay while the sun shines, I say “Restore Mustang when you can!”
Well the weather looked cold and chilly, but it wasn’t to bad after all. Only a coat and fleece on today to keep me warm. Lets hope the winter is not to harsh like they say it’s gonna be. Worst for 100 years no less. I will still be out in the man cave doing bits I can.
I promised a review of the Carplan Tetroseal Underbody Sealant, I have used it and reviewed it. After all the things I had read about it the hype didn’t in anyway stand up to my usage tests. In fact very disappointed; perhaps I should have spent more and bought something else? The POR15 is now my undercoat. Nothing on the forum pages I posted there to advise otherwise about this stuff. Maybe something else would have been just as bad, or better. I will never know now. What I do know for sure is that when I put the rear quarter panel on I will use the real thick rubberized coatings and research a lot more or ask me ‘ol mate Adam at Mustang Maniac. Read the review here or from the links on the side.
I amy review another book and post tomorrow, I only have two left now to review. Perhaps a tool of some sort. perhaps I will keep you guessing.
