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

Hey Bob, Just got caught up on all of your posts. It sounds like it was the pretty typical mix of ups and downs. :D Regardless if you had the car fully painted or not, you at least made some forward progress. :thumbs: As I near the point you're at now what makes me the most nervous is having an expe...

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

The problem I spent all morning trying to overcome was how to unload the car in a controlled manner down the ramp, as there was only the wife and myself. I was afraid it could get away from us going down the ramp and hit something. I felt really stupid when I realized the car was already equipped w...

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

Kind of a new twist in things though, we have been debating on selling our '95 Corvette for a while now, and it looks like that may happen soon. A friend of ours in our Corvette Club is planning on selling their 2001 Corvette coupe and replacing it soon, and I told him we are interested. Totally go...

Can anyone tell me how to remove the windshield trim on a 65 vette?
Bob, any thoughts? I'm familiar with how to do this on a C3, but not on a C2.

Re: Hi from Austin, Texas

Yes, that's true. Have learned a lot from my project. Now have plenty of time since I retired in 2016. My 2 car attached garage accommodates all of the parts to this thing. The chassis, the engine and the transmission are done and ready to become a rolling chassis. The body remains to be attended w...

Re: Rear deck lip rebuild

I would rebuild it with fiberglass. The 3M 5885 is good for bonding pieces but it sands really hard and tends to sag before it fully cures if it's applied in a thick layer. I believe the fiberglass would make for a better structural panel and be easier to finish.

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

I was hoping that all the fiberglass work on the car was now complete, but it looks like I will be grinding out that area and glassing over the 6" x 8" hole where the vent door was. I don't need the vent opening anyway, as the vent door cannot be re-installed due to the extensive damage to the vent...

Hi Jack,

I've tried working out why your photos aren't displaying but no luck yet. I suspect the upload feature got goofed up when I had to recover my forum this summer. I'll let you know when I get it resolved.

Re: Hi from Northern Kentucky

Howdy, and welcome to the forum. 1000+ HP - yikes! Not to shabby for a motor built by a teenager. :cool: I'll be interested to hear/see how you get all of that power down to the ground! :willy: Unfortunately I'm not able to see the photos you've posted. Can anyone else see them? Looks like I'll have...
