Frederick bought anti roll bars from me last weekend. Good buyer, and cool guy. Would do business again without any problem.

Hey!
Thanks Guys, that's what it's all about.
We are only here for a short time, it's better with smiles.

Speaking of which, I do get a lot for those because of the fine wheels Puma! Heads turn enough to justify slowing down in Vanilla Latte. At red lights I have to get out fast to avoid answering questions and signing autographs.

Philippe, a buddy sandblasted the sway bars and they will be installed after I get new poly bushings. One of them was powder coated! No wonders it still looks great.
I won't have them gold plated or chromed......Tremclad is fine.

My Wife recently acquired 2 convertible parts from Sir Frederick.
Image
(sorry for the particle board background)
These latches are much stronger than the OEM material, and are in the process of being fitted to her car as a 'reversible upgrade'.
The piece on the left shows initial polishing, and upon final polish the set will probably necessitate sunglasses for the vehicle operator when the top is down...perhaps reminiscent of the chromed 'beaver shot' glove boxes of years gone by :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: .

His workmanship is evident in each of the carefully handcrafted pieces.

The greatest percentage of convertible owners will not be able to afford these one-of-a-kind parts, yet they are most appreciated as there was some concern that the high winds in this region might accidentally rip the soft top off during a brisk drive.

Packaging, shipping, and delivery were all done in a timely manner, and he was a true gentleman with our modest transaction.

If you are interested in an unusual but functional present for that special someone in your life who loves their convertible(s), these are humbly offered for your serious consideration.

We rarely deal with people so far away, but:

Manutea (Frederick) is a serious, thoughtful, clever, gifted and talented member of the Teamswift board, and if he is selling something you want, expect a smooth and pleasant transaction. He makes a strong case for the members in Eastern Canada!

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!
