Re: Power Antenna

I'm not sure if they do this, but I think so, D & M Restorations may be able to repair your existing antenna. Here is their web site:

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

Not this year. The '68 doesn't have paint or an engine yet, the 65' is getting the final body work cleaned up for paint, the '95 is getting the front bumper repainted (under warranty) so I can sell it, and the 2001 is waiting for the '95 to be sold so I can transfer the plates. You are right though,...

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

Well, the Corvette Show is now over and I can get back to work on my cars! :Hurray: :hammer: The show went extremely well, perfect weather and tons of really incredible Corvettes from 1954 through 2019, including some radical customs, awesome paint jobs and even some race cars. Here are some photos...

Looking to have around 175 Corvettes t...

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

On another note, I am about finished with the air conditioning repair work on my father's manufactured home and we are now just 24 days away from our Corvette Club's annual Corvette car show of which I am again the show director. Once the show is over (May 25th), it is full steam ahead and bust ball...

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

Here are the photos of the engine to date. :D The intake manifold still looks pretty tall, but it is the lowest manifold could find in a 2 plane aluminum manifold for the big block Chevy. :skep: I could not use the high profile Polylock valve adjusters and still use the low profile stock valve cover...

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

Fitting the tilt nose is proving to be more difficult than I thought. Since I don't have half a dozen helpers to assist in moving the nose into position while I adjust and shim the nose, I tried to use an engine lift like the one below. Harbor Freight Engine Lift.jpg The problem is that the only way...

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

After installing the lifters and rocker arms in cylinder #1, we installed a variable length pushrod to determine the correct push rod length I needed. After knowing the required length, the pushrods were ordered and should be here today. I was also happy to see the roller rockers and posi-locks I bo...

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

We made a lot of progress over the past few weeks on the '68's engine. The parts all came back from the balancing shop a while back and we finally built the short block. Unlike the fuel injected hp 350 I built and is in the '65, I don't expect this engine to see over 4500 rpm, as the '68 is more of ...

Re: 1966 Dashpad restoration creates questions

Here are photos of my '65 restoration. My interior was black and you can see from my photos that the color of the dash is tan or brown and painted black. Not sure what they painted the dashes with, but this is how mine was found to be after I removed the original dash pads. 65 corvette original dash...
