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

The '95 Corvette went into the paint shop today to get the clear coat on the left front fender repaired and the front bumper re-painted. I am paying for it all over again as I will not take it back to that asshole at Carsmetics even if he says he will repaint it under the warranty, as I don't trust ...

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

I got the "estimated" cost of the paint job. OUCH! He did say he has not seen the car and it was hard to estimate by the photos, and he is trying to give the possible worst case, although it may be lower or more than the estimate once he gets into it, and it was based on the Tri-coat version of the ...

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

Well, the '95 plates have been transferred to the 2001 and temp tags are now on the '95 so it can be test driven by any potential buyers. Major bummer though, now that the '95 is on Craig's list, The backup camera got stuck in reverse view, which means you cannot see the radio selection screen or th...

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,...

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...

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...
