Dave's 69 AMX

Eddie Barrett - Monday, December 14, 2015

From the last update we have been moving along great on this 1969 AMX Javelin build. One of the ongoing issues, when building a car is coming across areas that need to be modified and fixed. We have noticed that the control arm was hitting the sub frame, in order to fix the problem we notched the sub frame so the control arm had clearance, and fit the correct way. These are the small details that cause us to fix them, and for our shop to be different than any other shop. We make sure that everything is perfect before we move on to the next steps in our builds. Making a clearance for the control arm involved a lot of time, patients, and precise, fine detailed work. Another thing with AMX's is that their frames have pinched welds, we were not happy with the way they looked, so we removed them and re welded for a clean look .This is what sets our technicians apart from others, they strive for perfection, and take their time on all our our builds.

We are mocking up the Ididit steering wheel tilt-telescoping column.Tilt steering wheels were only put in luxury cars, but now anyone can purchase one for their car! Tilt function helps to adjust the steering wheel by moving the wheel through an arc in and up and down motion. Tilt steering wheels rely upon a ratchet joint located in the steering column just below the wheel. By disengaging the lock, the wheel can be adjusted upward and downward while the steering column remains stationary below the joint.


We have also installed a Wilwood performance swing mount master cylinder pedal assembly. This pedal assembly uses individual front and rear cylinders, as the brake master cylinder uses an adjustable balance bar to provide optimum front and rear braking. These pedals are going to make you want to ride hard and fast, in this pro touring beast.
