I really appreciate you thinking of me. I will certainly remember you have them. Right now I am going to budget my money for rust repair. It remains to be seen whether I can form the braces and floor pans ornwhether Imam goingmto spend 3000 dollars for reproduction sheet metal. I would be happy with a good 305 but Imdo want a clutch pedal. That rebuilt Muncie I have is just bagging to be in there. Of course if I used the 305 I could save the Muncie and use the Saginaw I have......or mabe a 5 speed. Wow! there are so many possibilities.

Funny you should ask, it's a five window, but I have a three window roof that I was going to use to make it a three window. But now with the Motorama theme it will remain the five window and in fact I will be making the center window larger.

Looks like the new owner of the vette will do it some good. I have a question about the forum. I made a thread asking about paint/processes for household paint. Did I put it in the wrong section and it got deleted? I didnt know where to put it it was a 50/50 with the general tech or general rodding. I was asking advice here because im sure most of the members here have had experience with doing so. I guess I made someone mad.

Well it involves actual home walls...im having major issues with the bathroom with it cracking and flaking. It will only last 3 months tops before it starts cracking again. Ive thought about a poly sealer but I want it to be flat white not sure if it would settle into the paint to maintain the flat white look

John, I am with ya on the '54 taillights and such. '54 is my favorite year of pre-tri fives.

A 5 speed would be a good addition....better gearing, mileage and one more throw of the lever.... I'm a manual man myself.

I have a vintage 283 that was running when pulled several years ago. I'm sure it needs refreshing and we're a LONG way apart but I have it on craigslist. It was going to go in my '52 flat bed but I'm leaning towards a 292 right now to keep it a 6 cylinder.

This internet stuff is fun by bringing people from all over the country/world into our homes but when it comes to meeting or helping, you realize the distances between.

If it's about walls in your home post it in "off topic". I personally know next to nothing about house paint. But with my very limited experience it sounds like you have some moisture problem and it may require striping it all off, it sounds like you could have mildew or something in the sheet rock. Removing it may be the only answer.

I could be interested in the rubber, I actually think I have some, I believe I have all "new" that I bought about 20 years ago! Believe it or not, I have an NOS windshield rubber I bought from the Chevy dealer!

But then again, I am thinking about going with the stainless too. The seat is about all I may need, but I may go with a car one.

Right now, I think I am good, thanks so much.

Brian

Finishing up getting my Pete ready for market. Needed new brakes on the rear drive axle.
The dust shield was rusted away too



New shoes, hardware and dust shield.



And new AMERICAN made drums...



I take it to get steam de-greased on Monday and then it goes on-line...
