Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

It's been over a month and the project work continues! I'm finally back to post some photos (if I can remember how!). So, the last pics I posted were of the fiasco I had trying to get that one exhaust manifold off the engine. I finally used an air chisel to chip away at the outer edge of the subject...

Re: Veterans' Service Records

When I first saw this, I thought that if I live to be older than 103, my SSAN will be out there for any scammer to abuse. However, reading further it looks like they'd need my service number & name to request the records in the first place, so really there'd be no harm in that regard. But, it still ...

Re: 1972 BB Convertible in Atomic Orange Color

Which cable Vito? The front one (from the handle) or the rear one (brake to brake)?

Paragon says the front one is 29 5/16" long.

Corvette Central says the rear one is 88" long.

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

All are good points Bob, ones I had overlooked just for the convenience of having the handle & wheels to push it around and get it into the initial position without have to get down on hands & knees.

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

That's pretty neat Bob. Not sure if it's for me, but if anyone else is interested here's a link for something similar with wheels and a handle for $129 with free shipping. Lift is 15.75 inches. amazon.com/6600-Triple-Jack-Extended-Handle/dp/B07892HR58/ref=sr_1_19?crid=B4HWNLAS1LWK&dchild=1&keywords=...

Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

Just a quick update from WA...I am finally back to work on the corvette while I'm mostly adhereing to our COVID-19 stay-at-home orders. Not much flying for me to do with most of our airliners parked, so I found a productive way to bid the free time. After the basement refinishing and getting all the...
