Re: Restomod C-V8 on Retropower

So a Ron Clay special chassis. Anyone know anything about that? That then has had front and rear axle changes, modern engine, steering, and driveline components. So it has cost 2 CV8's and an Interceptor so far. I know nothing about the https://joc.org.uk/smiles/big_standart/pleasantry.gif Ron Clay...

Re: Restomod C-V8 on Retropower

Eddie, You should pop up there (When we're allowed!), they have some amazing projects on the go. My fave is probably the bronze coloured Stratos - mind boggling! I'd REALLY wanted them to do my body shell, but sadly now they only do complete builds. They will be doing an Interceptor (NDV 504F) at s...

Re: Restomod C-V8 on Retropower

Retropower is a stones throw from my house. I worked with someone that had some bodywork done there and it was flawless. Also a stones throw from me:- Martin Robey Dave Gulliver (V8 rebuild) Stateside autos (great for Mopar bits) Classic and chrome Brookfield classics (first class body shop) They'r...

Re: Restomod C-V8 on Retropower

I'm with you Grant, I love their work. Total perfectionism. They are booked solid until 2025 and now only doing full builds. Have you looked at their body shell prep process? Molten zinc spray then body coloured Raptor, end result looks 'nearly' as good as your blue Interceptor!! Hello EricMan..Gre...

Re: Restomod C-V8 on Retropower

Bloody interesting, I love the way they all get these great ideas like just having overiders without a bumper etc, brilliant, wouldn't even think of it, I don't like over-riders on bumpers, but thats the complete reverse, remove the bumper and leave the over-rider https://joc.org.uk/smiles/madhouse/...

Re: Ouch !!

Stephen, be happy that he didn't hurt you with his knifes and machetes. It's a pity about the nice car. Beside my small garage I'm also running a depannage-service. Unfortunately it happens very much often that the havarists are drunk or drugged and from time to time I am getting their keys away fr...
