HERES A LITTLE PREVEW OF THE BUILDING WHERE THE NEW SHOP IS LOCATED
I HAVE TONS OF CHANGES FOR OUR NEW AND EXISTING CUSTOMER, AND WILL CONTINUE TO ADD SOME MORE THOUGHTS EACH AND EVERY DAY OVER THE HOLIDAYS , SO STAY TUNED AND FEEL FREE TO COMMENT!!.
2018 CHANGES AT BUBBAS.
WOW never knew we would be doing a few thousand early Ford Flathead distributors over the years. After 24 plus years of technical training, dyno shop and fuel injection services I quit the Injector business and opened Bubbas Hot Rod Shop at 1330 Main street . This was eight years ago and i may have one more move in me! One thing for sure i have learned a lot ! I thought i really knew these old Ford ignition systems but after many-many rebuilds i still learn something new every day..
Sometime this year (gonna take some time) i will move the existing shop equipment, inventory etc to my shop behind my house. I have set aside a area ( a single bay) just for my new early Ford facility. Terry my long time friend and part time guy will stay with me and my office manager of 20 plus years, Peggy will finally retire . ( Wants to be a uber driver ).
This will require some changes in the business and hopefully improve our overall Flathead Ford Ignition services.
Responding to what we have learned:
1-After doing some business with Skip the coil guy i have decided to copy some of his policys. At some point this year (to be announced) we will no longer take charge cards and ask that a check comes in the box with each service order. Save some time on the phone and get rid of a fairly large expense with the card machine and phone calls etc. A new pricing page will be done hopefully before Jan 1st. This should make it better for all concerned.
Example: need a flathead distributor rebuild , just box it up ( with payment) and ship to us. Unit will be rebuilt tested and serviced, put back in the box and returned ! Our goal is 7 days service on everything with shipping included in pricing. We are looking at $200 flat charge on every Ford Flathead distributor with everything included. No cap or rotor or helmet side caps , plastics etc. We presently charge $168 plus $18 shipping so this is really not much of a increase of where we have been ..
