Well, I have about finished the majority of my "Domestic Do List" after retiring, which the Corvette was just a small item on the list. Now that the list is mostly done, I've started working on the car again.
For the past 2 weeks I have been working on the windshield molding. I have it about 95% fitted and the windshield company is coming to my house on Wednesday to inspect and give their opinion of how ready it is. It cost me $69 for them to do this, but I am happy to have another set of very qualified eyes look things over before commiting to the windshield install. Hopefully they will be comfortable with it and I can set the install date right after that.
I still need to remove the driver's door and finish, paint and clear coat the inside of the door and the door jamb, install the weatherstrip and reinstall the door.
After that, its get the body ready for paint, which now is mostly finish the 220 grit sand, one last coat of high build primer, 220 grit sand, final primer-sealer, then 400 grit sanding followed by 600 to make it ready to spray. My goal is to have it painted by Christmas, and being retired, with lots of availablew time to work on it, it is an achievable goal.
The weather here has been GREAT for the past week and more of it to come.
Vito, I don't know how the A/C installer installed the fittings, but I'll try to post the photos you asked for this weekend. I have to get ready for our Corvette Club's annual Halloween party, which is in a few hours.
