Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Now that I have enough miles on the engine, this Saturday is change the oil day, where the break-in oil comes out and new, fresh synthetic oil goes in. The engine builder warned me not to get freaked out by the slimy grey matter that comes out with the oil, as this is what the break-in compounds, c...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Man, that looks really sharp! They did such a great job! You can tell by looking at the reflections that they did a real nice job getting the lines and panels straight.

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Man, that windshield is like the bane of your existence! :ack: Hopefully the new gasket makes the difference and all goes smoothly. Can't wait to see the car in it's new paint job. Should look amazing! It's odd your heater core was clogged up with a bunch of gunk. I've only heard of that happening w...

A couple weeks late, but Happy New Years all!

I'm certainly glad to see 2020 in the rearview mirror. Hoping 2021 turns it around for us!

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Glad to hear your thoughts on the differences between the windshields on a C2 and a C3. Yours sounds to be a nightmare! Thanks!

Re: Major DIY restoration

Welcome to the forum! Most folks here on the forum have lifted the body from their cars as part of their projects. I documented my body lift on my website here. It's a 71 but the process is pretty much the same. http://www.corvette-restoration.com/2005/09/23/body-lift-let-the-restoration-begin/ Lift...

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

It won't be long now... That write-up for windshield installation will be helpful for me. Putting the windshield in my 71 is on my short-list of things to tackle.
