Re: 1973 restoration

Ok... went to Harry's U pull it and in Allentown, PA and found the two fans some websites suggested for the cooling system mod on c3 vettes. It turns out that the dual fans from the Ford Taurus need to be obtained from the pre 1992 model. The later ford Taurus model fans do not work. I did find some...

Re: Condensation pattern?

If there is corrosion on the headlight support bar and that is what is causing the condensation a simple observation of this area will not confirm if there is rust internally. The headlight support bar has a channel and it would be impossible to see if there is rust in the inside of it as this area ...

Re: 1973 restoration

LOL MaineVette, I put at least 200 plus hours on the paint, that's not including the body work. Priming took the most, and then the color sanding. Getting all the inperfections to get a mirror finnish with 1500 girt sand paper followed by 2000 grit was no fun. The doors alone took about seven hours ...

Re: 1973 restoration

Compounded my vette and obtained a decent shine. I still have to add the polishing compound and machine glaze to get a deeper shine. Here are some pics after the compounding was completed. Also intalled driver side door and side exhaust shields.. http://i1158.photobucket.com/albums/p603/mauriciodiaz...
