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

Getting ready for the fall car shows and other Corvette events that are now starting up. Just registered for and got a hotel room for the Daytona Turkey Run on Thanksgiving weekend. Not a judged show but an extremely large swap meet and car display for all types of cars (with restrictions), usually ...

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

So did you get to go for that ride? I can only dream that such a day will come for me while I'm healthy enough to enjoy it! Yeah, and it was great. Have got a little over 500 miles on the engine now and while I am painting the wheel wells and cleaning the under carrage, I changed the oil and put in...

Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

I don't know how long ago Tim started his, but I see your first post when you started restoring your Vette was Dec 4, 2010, almost 11 years ago also!!! How much more is left to do on yours?

Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

Then I updated my profile to indicate that I am now a RETIRED pilot and the project is being done SLOWLY!! But anyway, now that there are no time zappers due to my job, maybe I can get the car progres...

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

It sure did take a lot longer to clean and paint the wheelwells than I thought it would, but at last, the last wheel well is now painted and drying. :hammer: 20211018_151645.jpg The front wheels are installed and finally the center caps are also installed, giving the wheels a really nice dressed ap...

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

Will it ever end? You've done/are doing multiple vettes while I'm going to be a "one and done" kinda guy (at least I hope I eventually get my '71 finished). Very nice work! Enjoy Thanks, believe me, it stops with these 2! :agree: I got the right front wheel well on the '65 painted and part of the r...

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

Already making plans to finish the '68 Vette. :drool: (Photo before the start of this restoration). car6.jpg Quick refresher, the paint has been removed and most of the body work done, but a lot of fine tuning still to do yet before primer/sealer. Most all of this is documented in the beginning of ...

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

Finally, after all these years, the car is watertight, the rain has left and I am starting to drive it more. :Hurray: Yesterday I assembled my EZ Car Lift, greased it up and the Vette is now up in the air in my garage for it's 500 mile oil change and grease job. Break-in oil goes back in with a pin...
