Re: Corvette Generation - HELP

I do know them and I bought some brake lines for our '95 corvette from them, used. Ours rusted through and I could not find new ones anywhere, and they were one of the few that had any at all. They are a small Corvette parts shop with a heck of a lot of used inventory for C3 & C4 Corvettes. You get ...

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

Well, I guess I get to post the first post of the new year! Happy New Year to everyone, and hope it is a productive Corvette Restoration year! I don't know about everywhere else, but here in St. Pete Florida, we had a week of incredible weather. Made it into the high 70's and even the low 80's almos...

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

Well, a different type of progress was completed last week. With the '65 Corvette occupying my garage, the '68 has been living in my car trailer. When my father passed, I inherited his manufactured home and the lot that it sits on. Mostly using it for storage and a place for my brothers who live up ...

Re: windshield trim removal

Here is a site that shows how to remove the trim. It uses a similar tool. Both tools slide between the windshield and the trim to release the molding clip in the same way, just the handles are different. http://www.stl-vettes.com/65Vette/windshield/windshield.htm It includes a somewhat simple video,...

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

I was wondering just how hot the car body would get this time of year. We do have a lot of sun, but it's not a really hot sun, and the temperatures rarely get above 75-80 degrees this time of year, and most days not even that warm. All weekend the car was in the sun in my front driveway and the hood...

You slide it between the windshield and the tr...
