Well I have been plugging away for nearly 5 years now on the coupe. My son's Mustang behind me, it's time to get busy on my projects again. Although i had planned to continue work on the Vette, I decided that with a few months of good hard work - I could be driving the old Dodge to Pavillions and the newer East Valley cruise nights on the weekends. I moved the car into the first bay yesterday. A sure sign it was at the plate. It's on jack stands and work has begun. I removed the GM tilt column to clean it up and paint it. I ordered the 2" ididit swivel firewall mount I was lacking and a new 14" stainless, leather wrapped banjo steering wheel is headed my way. I ordered window gaskets for the rear quarter windows, back glass and windshield from Steele Rubber (they had everything in stock). Glass is already being cut and should arrive in less that 2 weeks from MN. I'm starting the painless wiring install this weekend.
After a long hot first summer and a good cleaning out of the garage since the move, I took the sheetmetal all back off the car and started back into it. I ordered up some steel rims and Coker wide whites. I also began getting the brackets, pupms, pulleys, etc.. all figured out for under the hood. I did some measuring and ordered up an aluminum radiator as well. This is as far as things went for a while. I got sidetracked by my '69 Corvette frame off (still in progress) and my son'r '70 Mustang 5.0 HO/T5 project which is about done.
Just before I relocated to AZ in '04, the car started to actually look like a car again!!! It was the first thing that got delivered to our new Chandler address. My garage will never be this clean again ;-)
