I've hardly had time to write through July as we've been busy trying to balance customer projects with working on our own vehicles.
As usual (because we never know when to stop- on our own stuff, that is) a small job has turned into something waaay bigger than originally planned, consuming all our free time (not to mention cash) for the last month and a half.
A long, long time ago when Matt was 16 he bought his first project car- a classic mini in British racing green. It cost him £1200 and, as he quickly discovered, was made from 90% expanding foam and newspaper.
Mechanics have a love/ hate relationship with their tools. They love trying out shiny new tools- but hate how much money they cost!
In fact, I think that probably in more than any other profession mechanics get pretty screwed over in the equipment department.
We spend a lot of our time working on cars, which means we use and spend money on many many car related tools and paraphernalia, good and bad.
This blog post started out as useful advice for classic car buyers specifically, but all the tips below are equally valid for modern cars too. Enjoy!
Our blog delivers brutally honest advice for the “rotbox” in your life with the aim of raising the standard of car projects everywhere.
Practical, direct, actionable ideas and zero bull.
