Re: Front clip install - DONE!

I'm a bit late to respond here, but I believe I got them from Paragon Corvette. Good luck!

Re: Old Tire Exploded!

Wow! That's both impressive and scary - it would have been a rough ride going down the highway! Note to self - don't drive on 30 year old tires. I probably ought to check the ones on my corvette- they must be at least 15 years old. I definitely plan to replace them, but I probably be a bit careful o...

Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

Awesome progress, glad to see you've back in the swing of things. I never did manage to get the bushings out of my rear cross member. I tried and tried but eventually just gave up - they looked Ok anyhow. I think rebuilding the chassis was my favorite part of the project - you can really see your pr...

Re: Missing in action

Hey Guys! Yes, it's really me, and yes I'm still alive, the family is doing great, and yes I still own my Corvette - even though I haven't done a stich of work on it in over a year. Ugh! Sorry for being away so long. To be honest, I never intended it. I guess time just got away from me. It's been a ...

Re: Everyone Finished??

Same for me, it's been a long time since I've posted or even visited to view posts. We're in the midst of building a house and the day job has been crazy busy as well. Add those things to life as usual and it hasn't left any time for the Corvette. I'm hoping life slows down after Thanksgiving, I cou...

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

It turns out, I had the right part all along, it was just made wrong. The arm on the bracket and the arm on the vent window are off by about 10 degrees from mating with each other. Once I re-bend the arm on the bracket so it is parallel with the arm on the vent window frame, I'm sure it will work. ...

Re: Alex. I'll Take "Is it Cold Enough for $200 Please"

Are you building a 4-5 car garage with a kitchen, bedroom and bath attached? LOL Even if I did it probably still wouldn't be enough room! :D My wife and I have been super busy planning some house stuff (hence my absence around here) but things are coming along. I can't help but hold out hope that I...

Re: Cleaning the firewall

Your firewall came out great, a huge improvement! You definitely tackled quite a bit of reconstruction. I (and several others on here) can appreciate just how much work it is to get this type of result. Nice work!
