Re: '71 Coupe - Will I Ever Attempt the Restoration?

Hi Tim, I'm actually back in your neck-o-the-woods over in NH visiting my mother and today I was able to get into the shed where my '71 coupe has been stored for overTWENTY years! :eek: There wasn't much light or room to maneuver, but I did manage to get the cover partially off and actually cracked ...

Re: Let's see your ride!

If it makes you feel any better I asked this same exact question (same three acronyms) about 7 or 8 years ago when I started frequenting automotive forums. LOL I've been meaning to write a list of common acronyms for the help forum but just haven't had time to do it yet. I think it would be a big h...

Re: Let's see your ride!

LOL. I know what you mean. :) SB = "small block" BB = "big block" "Vert" = convertible So it's just their code for engine displacement and body style... I had a '70 SB Vert, and it was a great machine. If I go for a third Vette, it'll be a BB Vert for sure, though... OMG, just how dumb do I feel!!!...

Re: Let's see your ride!

OK, my ignorance is showing again...

What is a "vert" as in SB vert, BB vert and 67 mustang vert?

While you're at it, what is SB and BB?

Thanks,
Paul

Re: 1973 restoration

Got it... Pics are now posted. As you can see I removed the access pannel for mount #3 passenger side. The base of the mount is rusted as well as the frame rail and mount #2. http://www.kodakgallery.com/imaging-site/services/doc/4589:571468069703/jpeg/BG http://www.kodakgallery.com/imaging-site/ser...

Re: Update

Tim, Just saw your latest update on reinstalling the bonding strip to the rear deck and I have a question about the epoxy you used. You said it was OM approved and a bit stronger than the regular adhesive, but what will that mean if you (or any other owner) ever have to seperate the parts later on d...

Re: '71 Coupe - Will I Ever Attempt the Restoration?

Thanks for the reply Indy... I'll look into the NCRS standards and make a decision on how to proceed somewhere down the road, but I'll also be flexible as to the degree of compliance I'll be shooting for depending on my available time, patience, skill and, of course, money! No matter what, I sure do...

Re: '71 Coupe - Will I Ever Attempt the Restoration?

At least it's been dry, but I imagine that most of the rubber pieces are dry rotted. Hopefully the frame isn't rusted and I'd really hate to have to repair the birdcage like Tim did... Original paint is still on the body, but of course it had lots of stress cracks in it. I also know that the transve...

'71 Coupe - Will I Ever Attempt the Restoration?

GREAT SITE TIM!!!! I just found your site over the weekend and have already reviewed all your progress updates (except the engine rebuild). The details and "speed-bumps" of your project were quite eye-opening :eek: to say the least. Nevertheless, that got me thinking about getting started on a long ...
