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

It has taken a while for all the parts needed to arrive, but they finally came last week and John has started with the carpet install. Al Knoch made good on their part just fine. John has installed the black vinyl on the upper rear section and has almost all of the rear carpet installed. The top of...

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

Re: 1972 BB Convertible in Atomic Orange Color

I painted the parking brake console yesterday, even tho it turned out good the color is off. Turned out more of a flat black. :ack: Anyone ever experimented with using a clear coat on top of a flat color paint? Vito Yes, it sucks! If you can get some, SEM makes a paint in a spray can called Trim Bl...

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

Looking good Bob :thumbs: What glue do you plan on using for the carpet to insulation? The 3M spray did didn't work as expected. Any advice on prepping the center console for painting? I took the green scuffing pad already. Cheers Vito I'm not sure what adhesive John uses. It is in a spray can and ...

Work is progressing on the carpet install with two changes to my plans. Not unexpected for the way things have gone with this car so far! :bang: First, I as I said before, I decided not to use the jute carpet padding that came with the car, as it was not in the greatest condition and I know what jut...

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

I haven't made any progress on the Corvette this weekend, as the car is still in the upholstery shop. Did make a lot of progress cleaning and organizing the garage without a car in it though. It was great here on Saturday, the day our club's Corvette show would have been if not for the virus, but it...
