Oh, man - I know the feeling. I do the same thing! And the older I get, the more I think I can handle and pile on... Gotta have a real talk with that guy in the mirror...

header links

Hey Tim, In my vast and unrestrained laziness, I was looking for a way to click back to the site from inside the forum and tried clicking on the URL In the header above. It takes me back to the forum, not to www.Corvette-Restoration.com. I was thinking maybe you could add an image map so the URL to ...

Re: Cost of tilt/tele

Both sold. :-( But looking through past listings on CF it looks like it's not uncommon to find a decent unrestored Tilt/Tele complete and sometimes even with a wheel for about $550. Just barely missed a couple. That's the price I'll hold out for. Meanwhile, still gas tank shopping... Shopping... ugh...

Re: 1972 BB Convertible in Atomic Orange Color

Just re-read this thread from the beginning. What a beautiful color! :drool: Isn't it amazing how many huge side projects it takes just to get your hands back on the car? I will have to find a place for all my wife's antique furniture, holiday decorations and bins of clothes before I can get back in...

Re: Cost of tilt/tele

Thanks twice, Vito! That pretty much answers the $1500 question! But is $900 really the going rate? I mean, if a standard col can be had for $150, wouldn't say $350 be fair for the t/t? I'm not (or shouldn't be) in a hurry (seeing as how my fuel system is shot) but it only makes sense to hold off wh...

Cost of tilt/tele

Been thinking I'll just punt on refurbing my steering column and get the tilt/tele I always wanted anyway. Found several places to pick one up in the $1500.00 range. Part of me says that's just the going rate and another part of me says that's just how they screw the noobs. What do you guys think? C...

Re: Best parts supplier(s)?

Thanks guys! Learned that the CorvetteAmerica -> Eckler's relationship is that Eckler's sells CA's stuff (at least my AIM anyway). Eckler's really has the best-reading catalog, but I haven't yet found an online experience as smooth as I think it could be. Thanks for the heads up on their back orders...

Re: Gas tank

Hey Guys, Thanks. FWIW, this post was more of a status update on my WIP - just sharin' as I go. I got the impression my tongue-in-cheek comment at the end was taken seriously, but even before I saw the underside of the cap it was pretty obvious a replacement was the only option (it took 2 days to wr...

Re: Gas tank

Now I'm shopping for new stuff (yay, shopping), and I am curious about "fuel cells" instead of the stock metal tank. I'm reading that the rubber-lined fuel cells aren't made to last, really (hmm), and fitment may be an issue. But gosh, a tub made of bare metal? That's really the best option? My AIM ...

Gas tank

Well, now that I'm actually off my ass and doing stuff I'm wondering if I'm maybe posting too much. Let me know if I should put everything into a single thread or keep going this way? Anyway, I finally got my gas cap off, and :ack: (I think it actually makes a great image, just wish it weren't my fr...
