    Aylesbury Mustang GT V5.OGT

    After nearly a year of ownership, finally got round to my first post. Picked up my Magnetic Grey 2016 GT with factory black stripes from Basildon Ford last April. Already had a Magnaflow system to go on but have since changed this to a Borla system. A few other small mods done, currently dressing up engine bay. Determined to get to more meets and shows this year, only showed at Sandown last year. Up for any meets in Buckinghamshire and any drives. Robin

    Welcome to the forum, nice looking car but you missed a bit on the front bumper when you were cleaning it LOL!
    MustangManaic are a good company to deal with over here, its also very easy and usually cheaper to buy from Rockauto in America.

    66 Mustang Manual in London

    Stang NW11.jpgStang O-S.jpgHello everyone

    Have ended up restoring a '66 Mustang convertible 289 Manual , bought on impulse off a US trader ( not Ebay ), car got here and all was not well, rotten underneath. 2 years and serious dough later, car is reborn, all new metal underneath, quality respray , new carpets, hood , loads more, engine was the only good bit, throaty crate replacement just before I bought it with the Holley 4 barrel, it is sharp and muscular. Once I work out how to upload a pic, I will

    Got a query ; Decided after the restoration to upgrade the brakes to power, as they are too slow to stop the car, which is harder than you think with a manual transmission, a couple of companies make a servo cylinder , and I duly shipped one in made by Scott Drake. Trouble is, restorers showed me it does not fit , the Yanks say it does ( if I bash in the shock tower , which I am not prepared to do - why vandalise your own car ? ) the Yanks said before buying that we ' may have to notch the stock brace ' , which I was ok with, in the event our brace is an upgraded one and IS NOT in the way, but I am not prepared to ' bash ' new metal to accommodate the servo powered cylinder. I asked the Yanks to show me a video / instructions ' how this fits , but they can't provide these. I waited a good 3 months to ship it over and paid about £450 with shipping , and now I still have slow brakes ( I had a front wheel disc conversion at same time as restoration ). I will have a labour bill of about £350 for their pfaffing about

    Obviously I want to be put back in the same position as I was before shipping it - how can I pressure them , I know I can start slagging them off via Twitter etc, but this is nasty and vindictive

    Constructive comments only please !

    Welcome. With hindsight what you should have done was come on here first and ask the questions before spending your money. With regards to getting your money back you will probably have to put it down to experience I'm afraid. Sorry but you did ask.
    Anyway, post your questions in the technical section and I'm sure someone can help you solve your problems.

    Awaiting my first mustang

    I've been looking at a 2007 roush mustang on eBay, without sounding stupid but how can I tell if it's a proper roush, it's got the markings on the seat and the sticker on the door, are they supercharged?

    1st generation fastback

    Hi, I don’t yet own a Mustang but hope to soon ! Me and my brother a looking to purchases a 1st generation 1967/8 Fastback (ideally manual) for restoration – we’ve looked at a few (including in Belgium and Holland) and they’re either already done and expensive or require lots of new panels, chassis rot etc. – does anyone have any guidance on what to look for and how much we should expect to pay ? Also is it worth a trip to the states (or not worthwhile as £<>$ not great) – are there likely to be options there ?

    How difficult is it to convert from auto to manual ?

    Any advice or help appreciated.

    something like this? http://www.classicamericancarsales.c...tback-project/

    Try speaking to some of the dealers they may have something in that they haven't started on yet. Peter & Ron at Classic American Car Sales, Mustang Maniac and a few others on here.

    Peter @ Classic American Cars has just got a plane to the US looking for new stock so may be able to look for you while out there?

    New Guy

    Hello everyone,
    i am Brian, based near Oxted Surrey and now the proud owner of a Gold 68 coupe in pretty decent condition. However I need to sort out a few issues before i can take her out with a smile on my face. Any advice to solve this would be greatly appreciated.
    First is that there is a problem with rattling front disc brakes. Has anyone fitted a Heidt conversion kit and can tell me what the anti rattle clips look like on the setup. A photo would be great. The caliper is guided by a steel C plate that bolts onto the hub casting. The brake pad on the piston side floats around unrestrained. The supplier of the kit in the UK does not carry the spares and Heidt in the USA are no help at all ignoring my emails.
    Thanks all. Brian

    New Owner

    Hi all! I am a new owner and just received my white convertible GT after ordering it back in June 2016. I have completed the first running in 1000 miles and am enjoying driving it. Over the decades (I am now 67) I have had a few yanks, Chevrolet Impala, '57 Mercury and a Corvette (which I did 155,000 miles in) and enjoyed them all. I am retiring very soon and thought that the Mustang GT would be a suitable pensioners car. I have made new "friends" at the local garages, as I now see them on a regular basis, and I hope that the governmrnt does not spend all that extra tax & Duty revenue that I am giving them on hand outs to those that have paid nothing into our systems. I am intending to go on Mustang meets and make the Mustang a bit of a hobby.
