Re: Removing the front clip

Glad to hear you're back at it. I will admit, when I read your post and viewed the damage, I was concerned that it was all over and we wouldn't hear from you again. I expected my 69 to take a couple of years to complete and that is just now going to be the case! It's seems the truly dedicated belong...

Re: Looking for some advice - blowing out fuel lines

I just hope clrayjr returns with an update, and yes, if the fuel-lines are stainless steel they've been changed but may need cleaned or replaced. OP could also setup a gravity feed directly to the carb if he just wanted to start it, he'll just need to be real careful...

Re: Looking for some advice - blowing out fuel lines

If the fuel lines sat with gas in them for 23 years - its most likely clogged with varnish and corrosion (suggest Replacement). Loosen the fuel line going to the gas tank at the fuel pump, see if you have good steady gravity fuel flow from the tank. If you don't, slightly pressurize the fuel tank at...

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

Oh how I would like to retire, other than getting board, I'll have to find some other retired folks to hang with!

Re: Made contact with the last owner - 1987 photo

I bought the car for half price of what he paid 2 years earlier :D It's easy to imagine the fun the p...

Re: 1972 BB Convertible in Atomic Orange Color

Interesting,but COOL :) Kind of a nerdy question, are you going to make a maintenance/repair manual for the mods you've made? I think I will make one for the mods on my time sucking restoration!

Made contact with the last owner - 1987 photo

Out of the blue I was sent a photo from one of the owners(Octane Boost Corp) of my 69 C3. It was bumped in the front and totaled by their insurance be cause it was to cost over $4000 to repair! Edit: Found out the picture was actually taken in 1985, wreaked in early 86, and this photo was developed ...
