Re: Chrome Removal ?

Well, although a66toy already mentioned the source of these, I thought you might be interested in becoming a chrome plater - it might make a handy sideline if no one else on the rock is doing it. Firstly, though, in answer to your question about removal, you can either use an electrified brush or a ...

Re: So, what's on your Vette to-do list?

Hey guys! Well, my 2014 to-do is: get off my ass and do the damn thing! My "plan" is to get it running/driving in as close to as-is condition as possible and then take it apart for the restoration. Now, since it's been rotting across 3 owners over 10 years or so, that first part will entail a fair a...

Re: C3 hot cockpit fixes

It's interesting (to me) that Dynamat is not a full-coverage solution. Maybe the gaps are part of how it works. http://www.dynamatstore.com/images/products/detail_141_XGM-C3-F--FLOOR-DRIVER-SIDE-detail.jpg http://www.dynamatstore.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=141 (Assuming the custom-cut product ...

OEM carpet draped?

Hey guys, This is just an idle question. My broken-down vette is the only one I've ever seen in person, so if this seems like a dumb question, well, it probably is. The carpet behind the seats that comes off the rear deck and down the slanted wall has a wrapped seam around the edge (like a doormat e...

There was a COPO 69??

Hey Guys, Saw this in the grocery store the other day and nabbed it. I had no idea Chevrolet sold a COPO Corvette in '69 (assuming HotWheels didn't just make it up). How many were sold? Is there a registry of 'em? Any famous ones still cruising around? Thanks, Chris PS: The great thing about being g...

Re: Fiberglass sealer?

Hey Guys, Well, I thought I'd post a cautionary tale. It's a reply to my original question because you guys told me to do it and I didn't and well, now here's the fricken result . Ugh. I am so screwed (as if I wasn't already, before! LOL). :ack: The reason NOT to let your bare fiberglass hang out in...

Re: Fiberglass sealer?

I don't know what you guys' opionion on zombie threads is - I sorta feel like time should not be a factor in the continuation of a conversation. Then again, my last post mentioned it'd be 8 months till I get the project started and 3 years later it's in the exact same spot. Gotta get better about se...

Re: BOUGHT WTB Tele/Tilt Steering column

Three weeks ago I came to post the same WTB ad and saw this, sent the yard an email but haven't received a response. I'll probably have to FU with a phone call.

I think my natural resistance to spending money is going double the time spent on this project... :skep:

Re: 350 Engine rebuild

:lurk:

Waiting for the grand finale - a video of the trip down south (with a couple donuts thrown in for good measure)?

I guess it's all worked out and working?

Re: Steering column - rebuildable?

Tim, I think you may just have written our epitaph: Well, as usual a simple task has become more work than anticipated so I'll continue ... in my next update. What stumped me was that the bolts on the interior weren't immediately visible - I suppose on mine they're under that black plate... Thanks! ...
