Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

img_1130 img_1131Tatton Park is a Favourite of Fellows Speed shop.

We had a brilliant weekend and also brilliant weather.

Always great to see customers from the North at this show and some of our Favourite customers Emma and Ant showing on the stand their Beetle Subaru Engine Conversion. One of our first and still looking incredible. Emma and Ant also have a puck and a bay window which they travel in every weekend to some part of the UK.

Also great to see Martin in his Bay window with a Subaru Engine Conversion detailed in Blue and also Stuart with a Full Subaru Conversion a Fellows SPEEDSHOP Steering Rack conversion and also Fellows Speed Shop Brake Disc Conversion. Stuart also has a full suspension upgrade so this bus will be one to see at the shows and a great specimen

We will have 3 Subaru Engine Conversions on the stand and in a new position on the field overlooking the show and shine.. Wow some incredible VW to see and photos can be seen on Tatton Park facebook page.

The organisers of Tatton Park focus the show around the Show and Shine and is brilliantly run and some fantastic Vehicles and stands to see

always a good one see you next year

The Workshop Hack…..

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

We have been talking about it for a while, we need a shop truck. Something that we can actually use to haul parts around as well as test and promote new products with and on.

With that in mind at the end of the summer we acquired this awesome and heavily patina’d RHD crew cab. It had been built buy our good friend Paul Pace and when we heard it was for sale it had to be ours!

In stock form the trusty wagon eventually got Ben & Emma to EBI and back but finally gave up the ghost a few weeks after. Engine was tired and shot so the planning began.

We have decided to shoehorn the motor from a heavily modified STI into our crappy old bus 😀

The engine is in fantastic shape despite being filthy, it is a much newer engine than the model of car we stole it from and appears judging by the masses of receipts to have had a lot of work done to it. In the Subaru it self this thing is crazy fast!

Then on to the fun bit strengthening the bus itself. Despite its looks the crew cab is very solid underneath but will need heavy modification to the underside to stop it twisting and braking.

The engine will be mated to a soon to be fully rebuilt Porsche G50 5 speed box. A great buy that came with a brand new clutch which I didn’t think that much of till I googled it! £700!!! ha!

And thats about where we are at the moment. More updates very soon!

Staff Cars – Ben’s collection…..

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Ben is lucky enough to have a few VW’s, first off a 69 bug project. It used to be his daily driver but was taken off the road for a full resto and as is often the case when you work on other peoples cars for a living your own projects get pushed back to the bottom of the pile. Hopefully 2013 will see it return to the road.

Currently awaiting a little more metalwork…

Not one to shy away from a project this is his new bus and company shop truck!! a 1960 Texan import Single cab

a couple of weeks ago a customer popped into to see us in his new toy! what a car! How great is the contrast between the two!! Engine swap?? 😉

After finishing prep for Dubfreeze on Sunday he found a little time to start fixing some of the many rust issues! Todays challenge the sills! More updates on more progress soon!
