Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

Eventually, I will get taller covers - something nice to replace the "boring" stock covers. :ack: I did that originally on my 350. Worked OK but I always carried a spare set of thick valve cover gaskets IN THE CAR. If y...

Re: Missing in action

It's great to "see" you back Tim! It does sound like you've been quite busy during your absence from the forum, not just sitting around in front of the TV with your feet up drinking beer...(not that there's anything wrong with that :cheers: ) The house sounds great and we'll give you break and "allo...

Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

I recently got around to removing the differential cross member bushings for the sombreros. I wsn't quite sure how to go about this, so I did some research on Google and the C3 Corvette Forum. Numerous posts explaining how others had done it, but not many (if any at all) with photos or diagrams show...

And of course now that's it has warmed up a bit, my heater part came in and I was able to get it installed and get the heater working again. Been doing lots of odds &...

Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

Well, the snow is still coming down but there's not enough in the driveway yet to warrant the second clearing& shoveling of the day.
