Re: Brake Light Switch Mounting Bracket

I posted the bracket I needed on several of the Corvette forums where it said "parting out cars", and within 4-5 hours had about a dozen hits. Got one for 15 bucks which included both brackets and all bolts and free shipping, and it was pretty close to me right here in Florida. Don't overlook the ab...

Re: Brake Light Switch Mounting Bracket

I have looked at Paragon, Ecklers, Mamotorworks, Zip Products, Vette Brakes, Van Steel Vette Products, Corvette Central, DR Rebuild, Corvette America, Davies Corvette Parts and about a dozen others on the web. Last hope was someone with an extra from a parts car. I can fabricate one, but I would rat...

Brake Light Switch Mounting Bracket

I am in dire need of the bracket which holds the stop light switch on a 1969-1975 Corvette. It is the bracket that bolts to the brake pedel housing with 2 small bolts and actually holds the brake light switch (not the bracket that mounts on the pedel to push the button). I am converting from a 1968 ...

Re: Sandblasting Equipment

Well, I am almost finished with the sand blasting. The frame is already completed and powder coated, and I am only sand blasting the exterior sides of the firewall and the complete underside of the body, in preparation for the exterior coatings of Lizard Skin. Don't really need to apply it on the ex...

Re: Sandblasting Equipment

Getting ready to clean the underside and rear portions of the body to prep for the exterior coatings of Lizard Skin Ceramic and I have the sand blaster ready to go. Never blasted except in a cabinet. What did you use for a face mask and breathing filters, and just how much protective clothing did yo...

Re: Hand laid, Press moulded or SMC

I am using almost totally epoxy. The bonding ability of epoxy to connect anything to anything is light years above polyester resins. It is one thing to connect two original parts, but for any repair requiring strength and bonding, the difference in price (about 2-3 times as much) is not only worth i...

Re: Hand laid, Press moulded or SMC

What is the difference between Press molded fiberglass and SMC and there for the use of addhesives? Sheet Molded Compound (or SMC) fiberglass is a polyester-based composite material used in the manufacturing of automobiles, personal watercraft and industrial equipment. These types of pieces are mad...

Re: Insulation / Sound Dampening

Yes, I have installed both the sound coating and the ceramic heat shield. Each coating is the thickness of a credit card (minimum, you can you on more if you desire for better results). I laid the sound coating on sort of thick, but put the normal amount of ceramic. I intend to coat the exterior wit...

Re: Insulation / Sound Dampening

Here are the photos of the Lizard Skin Sound Control. It initially goes on sort of spattery, but flows out somewhat. http://i851.photobucket.com/albums/ab80/rbryce1/Windshield%20%20Body%20and%20Firewall/09-29-10001-640x480.jpg http://i851.photobucket.com/albums/ab80/rbryce1/Windshield%20%20Body%20a...

Re: Insulation / Sound Dampening

Sprayed the Lizard Skin Sound Control to the interior of my 68 over the weekend. So far, I am greatly impressed with the product. Came out great. It was a lot easier to apply than I thought. Since it is all waterbased, just needed water to clean up everything. I will post photos of the Sound Control...
