A true one-off fabrication; this custom manifold was a labor intensive job but it got done to the standards required. These pictures don’t do this job justice in terms of the planning and involvement to make such a piece. But it shows that it can be done with the right supplies and skills

2009 Shelby GT500 Mustang

Got this Shelby in with some power issues that were traced to the catalytic converters being spent. The car already had a custom cat back exhaust system and since the customer wanted to upgrade to Kooks Long Tube headers; he went ahead and ordered their new “green” high flow catalytic converters. This GT500 can breathe right once again and makes incredible power.

Fuel line fabrication – carburetor application

The owner of this hot rod wasn’t keen on the black rubber fuel lines that went up to the carb; so our fabricator made some new custom metal lines that not only function well but really help tidy up the appearance under the hood. He also opted for a frame rail mounted fuel filter instead of the clear one bobbing around in the engine compartment.

Track Bar Installation – 03 GT

The Mustang GT that was here for a sway bar and shock upgrade came back for a panhard bar installation as well. Its a suspension link that improves stability in straight lines and cornering; assisting the vehicle to maintain a straight line when launching and helps to stop the tendency to make steering corrections when tracking.

Fox Body Mustang Subframe connectors

An overall stock ’88 GT came in for a few minor upgrades; a one owner car with only 9K original miles! First on the list was subframe connectors; to assist in tightening up the overall feel of the vehicle. Some mild performance mods are planned next; but nothing that would drastically detract from the overall originality of the vehicle.

Track arm bar repair and setup

Customer stated the rear end of his Mustang was clunking terribly; upon inspection it was found that the rear track arm bar was disconnected and in need of repair. Our fabricator was able to successfully weld the components back together and get it down the road. IMG_1098 IMG_1099
