The Boss A

New Zealand Classic Car - - BEHIND THE GARAGE DOOR -

fairly rare and de­sir­able gen­uine Boss 351 Mus­tang with all match­ing num­bers is un­der­go­ing a full restora­tion at The Surgery in Welling­ton. This car will be a show pony when com­pleted and at­ten­tion to ev­ery de­tail will con­tinue to be the key.

Mike and his team are at the stage of car­ry­ing out a full (tem­po­rary) re­assem­bly of all parts and fit­tings to en­sure that all panel gaps and align­ment are ab­so­lutely per­fect prior to fin­ish­ing, ready for the paint shop to then start its magic.

It is the at­ten­tion to de­tail at this point in the restora­tion that helps pro­duce the per­fect end re­sult when painted.

The en­gine and en­gine bay also re­quire in­cred­i­ble re­search and de­tailed work, start­ing from the paint­ing of the en­gine block, on­wards.
