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.

Toyota Tacoma Exhaust Repair

We have this Tacoma in the shop for a customer complaint of excessive noise. The truck was just recently purchased but had a large aftermarket muffler on it that dumped almost directly under the cab causing drone and bad interior resonance. We are fabricating up a new exhaust system that mimics the factory setup; allowing the exhaust to exit out the right rear of the truck.

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.

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.

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

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.
