x2. You'll never get that patina back if you clear coat it. Try rubbing compound and wax. You'll be amazed.
Stogy, you're outdoing yourself. Great photos, thanks for posting.
Wish my dad was still alive to see this car, it's very close to his first car, bought in 1938 at 18 years old. He modified it by putting on...
Nice work, looks bad ass.
I've been running that filter for many years, no problems. Bought a spare element but haven't used it yet.
Thanks Bruce, I've been thinking about doing a build thread even though it's almost 30 years since I started.
Nice day here, high 50's, I had to take the Vette for a spin. This is on the Siletz River.
Had to take a drive today, high 50's on the Siletz River.
That's just a tow chain keeping the truck in place. Conventional rear end (huge). I'm keeping the original drive train, was able to find new...
I've loved the C1 Corvettes from my first ride in 64. Took me ten years to build this one from a pile of parts. I've owned this one for 27...
Hose clamps look great, I might steal that stolen idea.
My 2 ton dually pickup, still got a ways to go LOL
When I moved to Oregon, I gave up about 3000 sq.ft. of shop. The existing 24x32 wasn't going to hold everything, so I did this:
I like chopped 40's, mine is 3"
oops forgot to delete my speedo pik, I was going to show my 160mph speedo but the pik only shows 150!
Wow, very cool Stude. My cousin had a golden hawk in the early 60's, but I like the 53 better.
My avatar seems to be a life long project. Started in 1993 with this:
Took 9 years to get this far:
Been doing small...
I'm with Bamamav, that's a nice Fairlane, you don't see many of those. Just get another car and build a gasser!
Yes, I think the edges of the cove has been 'peaked'. I think that's the term. Not digging the look, although I think it worked well when I did...
Beautiful work. This will be a sweet car. My avatar was a ten year project, so I know something of the dedication it takes to finish.
I've got all three, a double garage for DD and bikes, 24x32 shop/tool room, and just built a 20x50 extension on the shop to store all my...
USAF 67-70. I was lucky enough to serve most of my enlistment in Europe. Here's a pic of my 60 chevy in Greece. Paid $100 for it in 68, then had...
Interesting front end. Where will the lower shock mounts go?
And I thought the 6" channel on my 40 truck was wild. Thanks for the primer on the B pillars. I'm starting to replace all the wood in my 35 IHC...
Thanks, it was a lot of fun. It was well built but heavy. I added air shocks, helped a lot at 90#. No construction screws then, it was mostly...
One good story - when I was leaving, headed toward Del Rio, Texas, I was driving in a line of traffic doing about 30mph. A cop was standing in a...
