Re: Replacement of Rear End Support Crossmember Cushions

Zips is the most costly place I have found. They really slap on the "Corvette Tax".
If you decide to replace them do some shopping around.

Re: Air Compressor

I know this post is old. Hopefully someone will find it useful. I have a two stage 80 gal. compressor. It delivers 20 cfm @ 90 psi and 9 cfm @ 175 psi. I think I paid $850.00 for it.

Re: Ignorance is NOT Necessarily Bliss

Use 6 pt. sockets when ever you can which is most of the time.

Re: When to install fuel tank

Re: Welding equipment

A good rule of thumb: Buy the largest welder you can afford. The small (110V) welders have a very limited duty cycle. (Weld for a short time, Rest for a long time.) I have a Hobart handler 180 (220V) that has performed nicely with out fail for years. I use solid wire and Argon gas as shielding. Stra...
