It is that time of year again. The bitter cold has struck the East Coast, winter projects are well underway and Gift Certificates for The Wedge Shop are readily available. CLICK ME>>>>> Cheesy advertising I know....
We have complete a few large jobs recently for a few readers of this very forum.
We took in Mike & Paul Coffey's 1980 TR8 Convertible for a complete Cam & Four barrel Kit among other things. The car came to us completely stock with the zeniths still on (It did have headers). The car ran fine, but Mike & Paul knew they were skating on thin ice by driving the car to The Roadster Factory Summer Party every year and participating in the drag racing and auto cross events on a completely stock car.
They were right. The timing chain was so stretched out it was hard to imagine how it hadn't broken yet. The heads were just as ugly. They were gunked up beyond belief. We got the new Erson Street Cam installed, our Edelbrock intake setup, new timing chain, cleaned up the Pass side head, installed a new PS rack, poly subframe bushing, rebuilt clutch master & clutch slave.
After all this was complete the car sounded great and was running even better.
We have also been doing some extensive work on Paul Rego's newly acquired Triumph TR8.
Paul's car has most recently been in the shop our Wilwood Big Front Brake kit. Paul's car was using an old UK setup and he really didn't like the way they felt and he was having some fitment issues with his rims. While the car was in we noticed some PS leaks, along with an intake leak. We addressed this problems and should have the car back to Paul shortly, just in time for the New England winter.
We hope everyone enjoys the Holidays as much as we will and once again thank you guys for your continued support of The Wedge Shop over the past year. Without you guys we don't exist.
