Tell us about your Corvette: 1971 Coupe that's been in the family since new. Was "stored" in a shed in New England for 22 years. Even though I have limited knowledge and experience, I'm SLOWLY doing a body off restoration. Standby for many questions!

I must admit that I've been a bit remiss in keeping my thread posts up to date. Not much activity on this board now a days so I haven't been as thorough as I could have been. However, I have been posting on my thread on the Corvette Forum [C3 General section]. If anybody's interested, the link below should bring you to where I was about 18 months ago in my build and you can see what I've been doing to BigBlu in the mean time...

It's hard to believe that it's been almost 3 years since my engine was rebuilt and it still hasn't been run!

Still not caught up on posting updates to my project either on this forum or on CF. But I just had to post that what I said two posts ago is no longer all true.

:Hurray: I now finally have a RUNNING rolling chassis!! :cheers:
