I'm also trying to give better descriptions, but most of the time I'm posting when I have a minute or two and on lunch break. And I have to manage 55+ cars and make sure parts are ordered and customers are given updates on their cars. So it's over whelming at times.

Sorry for the bad grammar, English wasn't one of my strong points in school. And my phones auto correct is retarded.

We replaced the alternator in the car. It's staying the weekend because there's a chance of hail, today. Plus we have a few other things to check on it. And my boss doesn't think we can finish it before it gets here.

^ 01 911. Turned out the alternator was bad; so we replaced it. Owner has requested inspections on other minor issues.

^ 95 911. Also alternator replacement. This one was more of a hassle because the alternator is directly behind the fan. It also got belts replaced, and we broke one yesterday. Now it's all done except from the alarm system, going nuts.

^ 68 911S. In the process of removing the engine. So we can do a disassemble to see if the engine can be saved. If the crank case is damaged, engine is done. Hopefully that isn't the case.

84 Corvette. Car came in a couple of days ago for exhaust, but we couldn't get to it. So they left it today with use and we finally got it mostly done. We cut the system where it Ys right before the converter. We installed an X pipe and some flowmaster copies. The car will be returning for exhaust tips. They were in a hurry so it has just pipe going out the back. It sound pretty good, nice and deep. Which it drones loud at an idle and somewhat went away going through the RPMs. Which some people like some don't. The owner loved it and that's all that matters. Also this year was a special year, the wheels had black trim/accents. If I remember correctly the painted wheel design was continued into the 85 model year. I'm going to get a picture of the instrument panel, because it's pretty wild for the 80s. Then again the 80s were pretty wild to begin with. Nice car.

Please tell me it's a straight shift. Nice car and even though it's not a Fox Body Notchback I would love to autocross a C4.

Ok, I will tell you it's a strait shift not in an H pattern. And did you see the bronco?

No saw a 4 it had my focus. If I recall right it was a 4+2 manual in that year.

48 Mercury. It's a restro-mod. The engine is a 92 Lincoln Mark VII 5.0 with a few modifications, one I can see is short tubes. It's in for exhaust work and suspension. The owner of this car is the one I tried to get to paint my MGB. He has 3 other cars in similar condition. I've discussed with him about coming out to his place and getting some pictures of his shop and the other cars. This car as you can see is still in restoration. After our work, it's going to an upholstery shop for the rest of the interior. It's one of the nicest pieces we've had at the shop.

07 Z4. Came in for an full service oil change and an inspection. Nothing to report. It's a nice sporty little BMW. Clutch and shifter are a little weird but I'm used to short throws and shifters from the 70s and back. So it's probably me. Nice piece.

The bronco is the last post on the previous page (380). And yes they are very good handling cars, the Z4s. Luckily it's a stick, can't have an auto.

Exhaust is installed and tips are uneven as seen, owner was late to the upholstery shop. So it will be returning. Someone else had the diagnostic jack for the computer controlling the engine and trans. I believe it's OBD-I. It's hanging above the bell housing. So it will make a return so we can relocate it to the cabin. One last picture.

White Porsche. It was found out that the flywheel wasn't properly torqued. So we torqued it and reinstalled the engine it's running fine but the rear brakes are producing this black tar looking stuff.

Possible cause? We will know soon.
54 MG. We took off the carbs for rebuilding they are currently sitting in our acid bath.
75 triumph. Valves have been readjusted for the third time, the ticking sound is very minimum now. Clutch is waiting to be adjusted. We are trying to locate the issue to why the horn doesn't work. After checking the fuse and wiring it's concluded the horns themselves are bad. Further diagnostics will be preformed to solidify that statement.
That's all for now!

Ya said we could throw in our hints for solutions....

Horn on Triumph not working = Lucas Electrical.

Why do the Brits drink warm beer? = Lucas Refrigeration.

After looking at the wiring diagram we did a little more diagnostics. First theory was maybe the fuse was blown? That was thrown out the window when we say that the wiring diagram shows that the fuse powers the horns and the light in the glove box. Light worked then got a multimeter (and a few other testers) and started testing wiring. After about half an hour we concluded it was the horns themselves were bad. Just to be sure we are going to double check everything again before ordering the horns.

The purple wiring. The wire going to the left is powering the glove box light and the hazards are working just fine. But we will double check everything today.
Yes, Lucas wiring sucked back then. That's why in my MG's restoration the entire wiring system was covered in weather proof sealing and weather proof connectors. Being moister is what causes the issues, most of the time. But as the Germans say there's no such thing as a British engineer. Bold statement to say the least.

We have all this info in books at the shop. I didn't have a picture of the one we looked at so I just got one off google, to show what I'm talking about.

Update.
MG Midget is here for an oil leak. I believe it's the timing chain cover. We also had to remove the steering rack to get to it.

One of the smallest rotors I've ever seen.
Porsche is running good, but we still recommend the engine needs to be gone through. To find out where the metal shavings are coming from. We also changed his exhaust system, from a glasspack to a hushpower. The hushpower came off my Impala, it was the previous mufflers I had on the car. The car is a lot quieter and sounds better too. So win win.

I have pictures of two others cars here. I'll try to get them up later today. I'm also planning on going to check up on the Challenger. I found a trim piece he was needing and I'm going to take it to him and see the progress.

11 LS460 AWD. Car came in for full service oil change, a light in the instrument panel, back up camera doesn't work, and rear sensors. It sounds like a lot but it isn't very minor stuff. So I did a little comparison to my 07 LS460. Noticeable differences exterior wise are the front end is redesigned, and tail lights have yellow blockers on them. Now it could be that my car being silver hides the chrome trim but it looks like there's a little more chrome trim exterior wise. Interior differences. My car has all black interior and a ruby redish wood trim around the doors and console, and it's polished, this car isn't. I'll try to get better pictures of mine when I get home, to show some updates they've made. I believe the engine (4.6L V8) is untouched performance wise, rated at 380HP N/A. I'm pretty sure same 8 speed auto too, neither car has paddle shifters. Interesting not my 07 takes off from a dead stop in forth gear. Both are stunning luxury cars.


On a side note my mother wanted me to post this car up very badly. She's a Lexus junky and the owner is my godmother. Her late husband is the pervious and original owner of our 89 Porsche Slantnose, and a very good personal friend.
Edit: forgot to mention my car isn't AWD.

Update. I've been putting it off all weekend. So now, here it is.
White Porsche. Engine is in and car is running alright. Owner requested a exhaust change. So we took of the big glasspack and installed a hushpower. It was one of the mufflers on my Impala's previous exhaust systems. It quieten the car down quite a bit. Has a nice sound now. It's going to get a few more check ups then we'll send it home. Engine still needs to be gone through but owner doesn't want to right now.

79 MG Midget. It arrived late Thursday because of an oil leak. After removing several body pieces amount other things (radiator, steering rack, etc.), it looks like it's the timing chain cover. So we're waiting on gaskets for it, then start putting back together.

That's all for now!

08 Civic SI Coupe. Car came in for an alignment on all fours, and a full service oil change. We've worked on this car before on exhaust, it was too loud and we got it sounding better. It's got front grill changes and I believe a tune. The Civic and SI badges on the back have been shaved only a blacked out Honda logo remains. It turns out the car has been lowered and the car wasn't realigned afterwards. Reason why the tire went to crap on the back. Now the car is aligned and drives very well. It's very rev happy and seems like it's geared short. It's one of the few Jap cars I like and would own. It's a man trans (6 speed) which is a plus in my book. There were some somewhat curvy roads on the way to delivery. Car is well balanced and handles great. I believe a more aggressive alignment would improve it. Power from the little four is impressive and loves to rev. Stopping power is good but could be better with a little tweaking. Interior is quite nice and I like the tach gauge with SI in it, and the digital speedometer. One thing that could use some work is the shifter (stock). And at a certain rpm... VTECH JUST KICKED IN YO! 😁

Power steering issue, it's making a noise, but steering is normal. I believe it's just got air in the system, but you can barely hear it. We are going to test that theory tomorrow. We've replaced the A/C compressor in the car and owner has stated it works great (installed about 2 years ago).

Normally I take the pictures during the job and/or finished. But I've got a few pictures on my phone so far.

^ it's odd that it makes the color look yellow. But an 07 GT premium, 44K miles and it's for sale! It's the exact mustang I tried to buy before my Roush. After driving it, both cars are worlds apart. I love grabber orange though, my favorite color on the 05-09 cars.

Got some new tires for the Mercedes. Now going to do an alignment. The tires are 225/245, and rocking my bltchen American racing hub caps. It drives pretty good. It's a nice addition to the stable.

Nate, the 07 GT is fixed. We did a PS system flush and added new fluid. I drove it for a few miles just to test it. Noise went away. I'm planning to get the Roush out this weekend, no rain Saturday. And I'm going to let him take it for a spin. So, we'll see what he thinks of it.

I'm curious to what he thinks about the gap between them. I know when I drove his, (100% stock) first thing I missed was my shifter/clutch. Then the power difference. Which I'll need to let him drive it after phase 1 of the mod list is done.

We've done to many mods to the vehicle to list but it's a very nice car.
Unfortunately this is the only picture I have of the car...

Rs have hidden headlights.

I know, and they're hide away headlights. He kept them open because the driver side never closed well.
