Re: Berrrrr. Thats cold

It's been in the 90's here all fall so far. Today it went into the mid 80's at last. Charleston trip is now Nov 15th, as they are going to the SEMA convention in Las Vegas. Looks like I may get about 3 weeks of nice working weather to get it as ready as I can, they have them finish everything up and...

Re: Automatic Transmission on a corvette 70

What do you mean by Mounting Brackets? Do you mean the transmission mount? If so, Eckler's has them. If you mean the brackets that hold the cross-member to the frame, that is a different story! Paragon has them.

Re: Radiator recomendations

I have a 1968 convertible, no air 4 speed which had a 350/370 LT-1 engine installed in it for years. With the stock factory aluminium radiator, I never had cooling problems, in fact, in Connecticut, I needed to block off part of the radiator in the winter, as the engine would barely reach normal ope...

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

Well, the trip to Charleston is just over 3 weeks away now. Sure hope nothing fouls this one up. They say the third time is a charm, and I am counting on it. Got my new tires mounted on my newly powder coated wheels and back on the trailer, so once I charge the brake battery, it should be ready to g...

Re: Berrrrr. Thats cold

Didn't come anywhere near us, but it did come close enough to Charleston to delay my trip to get the '65 painted. Going up the week of Oct 15th now.

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

Started removing the rear window from the '65 coupe last night. I bought the special tool to cut through the sealant and the window is suppose to come right out. Trouble is, the sealant, even after 50 years, is still very much like the day it was installed!! The sealant that was exposed to air under...

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

More preps for my trip to Charleston. I removed all 4 tires and the spare from the car trailer. The tires had more sidewall cracks than you could count. I had the old tires removed and sent the wheels out for sand blasting and powder coating. Once they are back, I can install the new Goodyear 8 ply ...

Re: 1972 BB Convertible in Atomic Orange Color

During my resto on my custom '68 I looked all over hell and high water for one, could not find one that was worth looking at. Even Lectric Limited will not sell just the box. I would ask yourself the question though, if you need a new fuse box, it's probably due to corrosion, and the corrosion proba...
