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...

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

I talked to the upholstery shop that I want to fit my carpets regarding installing the rear carpets before I re-installed the rear window, as I thought it would provide better access for them through the window opening, and installing the front carpets after the car is painted. They said they do not...

The hood and top have actually made it to over 155 degrees, but the sides don't seem to get over 120, and that is ...

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

Any luck finding the replacement part for your window? Any chance you can fabricate one or go to a local fab shop and have it done for you? No luck as of yet unless I buy the whole used window frame for $499.00. Not that desperate yet. Tomorrow starts the NCRS / Corvettes at Carlyle Winter Meet car...

Re: rear differential cross member bushings

Vette Brakes and Products sells them, but they don't come cheap. $160 each! Or maybe it's for the pair - it's not really clear. Either way it's a lot of money for a hunk of rubber. :willy: http://www.vbandp.com/auto-parts.html?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage-ask.tpl&product_id=526&categor...
