Re: BIG Typhoon Headed for Okinawa

Reviving a 3 y/o thread eh Vito?

Better hold onto your hat (and everything else you've got)!

Good luck and wishes for no damage and if there must be any, only short power outages.

Looking good! I bet you're hoping to get it done and on the road before winter sets in...

Old Tire Exploded!

So I had an old tire mounted on a rim from a lil' truck I sold 3 years ago. It had been buried in my backyard shed when I came across it last week. I pulled it out and it looked OK, so I thought I'd list it for free on CraigsList. It sat outside the shed for about 4 days before I finally got back to...

Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

It's been over a month and the project work continues! I'm finally back to post some photos (if I can remember how!). So, the last pics I posted were of the fiasco I had trying to get that one exhaust manifold off the engine. I finally used an air chisel to chip away at the outer edge of the subject...

Re: Veterans' Service Records

When I first saw this, I thought that if I live to be older than 103, my SSAN will be out there for any scammer to abuse. However, reading further it looks like they'd need my service number & name to request the records in the first place, so really there'd be no harm in that regard. But, it still ...

Re: 1972 BB Convertible in Atomic Orange Color

Which cable Vito? The front one (from the handle) or the rear one (brake to brake)?

Paragon says the front one is 29 5/16" long.

Corvette Central says the rear one is 88" long.

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

All are good points Bob, ones I had overlooked just for the convenience of having the handle & wheels to push it around and get it into the initial position without have to get down on hands & knees.

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

That's pretty neat Bob. Not sure if it's for me, but if anyone else is interested here's a link for something similar with wheels and a handle for $129 with free shipping. Lift is 15.75 inches. amazon.com/6600-Triple-Jack-Extended-Handle/dp/B07892HR58/ref=sr_1_19?crid=B4HWNLAS1LWK&dchild=1&keywords=...
