Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

Looks great. I agree that cradle is pretty nice, I can tell lots of work went into that. Gary up in CT is pretty awesome, he did my trailing arms. I ended up calling him before sending my stuff out and he walked me through the entire process of rebuilding them and even sent some photos of the rebuil...

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

That window installation procedure is nuts! Thankfully you had someone to call to ask. Imagine if you had to figure this out on your own! :scrazy:

Hope the actual install goes as well as the test run with your old glass.

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

If I want another restored car, I will buy it complete!!! :agree: And you'll save a hell of a lot of money in the process! LOL LOL LOL At least you're in the home stretch. I've gained a real appreciation for how many little parts and pieces go into a car like this. And, like you, I've learned that ...

Re: cleaning fiberglass

Others may have different ideas, but as a first step I'd use a water-based degreaser like Purple Power that Wal Mart sells. It works really good. I'd apply that undiluted, let it set, and then scrub it with a bristle brush. Once that's done I'd wash it again with Dawn dish soap and, finally, I'd wip...

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

Now that I have enough miles on the engine, this Saturday is change the oil day, where the break-in oil comes out and new, fresh synthetic oil goes in. The engine builder warned me not to get freaked out by the slimy grey matter that comes out with the oil, as this is what the break-in compounds, c...

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

Man, that looks really sharp! They did such a great job! You can tell by looking at the reflections that they did a real nice job getting the lines and panels straight. I bet you're thrilled with how it came out, and that it's finally complete. Now you can enjoy driving it! I like the shade of red, ...

Man, that windshield is like the bane of your existence! :ack: Hopefully the new gasket makes the difference and all goes smoothly. Can't wait to see the car in it's new paint job. Should look amazing! It's odd your heater core was clogged up with a bunch of gunk. I've only heard of that happening w...
