Looks a little different from a couple years ago........
Found a couple more at Thompson on Bangshift
Looks great Cary and Rob.
Might make Thompson this weekend.
Any chance this Prefect will be at the York Nostalgia Nationals @ Beaver Springs in July ???
Last week we took the GASSER PASSER down to the Xenia " GATHERING OF THE GASSERS " event and got photos of George and his son Greg standing next to the car.
Nice show. Thanks George and Greg.
Kewl!! I never saw Ohio George's son before, but there is no doubt as to who his father is.
Well... since its been a few years, I was just wondering if there were any updates or progress on the Hurst Gasser Passer?
The last couple years they have been quite busy working on a friends project.
Back at it.
Started fiberglassing the missing pieces of the doors back together. This right front door had been ripped off at one time and it's really been a pain to put back together correctly so that it fits like it should.
I like working with metal....but not fiberglass. Fiberglass is to slow to work with.
I cut wood pieces to fit inside the doors and then screwed them to the original fiberglass to hold the parts of the doors in the correct position. I also used some perforated metal to reinforce the top of the door where it attaches to the hinge area. A long way to go.
Wow ! Thanks for the Update, I had wondered how the resto was going, but never saw anything posted for years !
Triple by-pass and other projects got in the way. Older and slower......
Oh man, I didn't know that, I hope you're in better shape now. And yeah, Growing old sucks !
PS- I had always wondered how you were gonna get those door together and strong again, thanks for showing us/ And I too prefer sheet metal, as Fiberglass looks so hard and complex to repair, I wonder how those Corvette shops do it, or do they just total the car and write it off these days ?
Sorry to hear of "the bump in the road" - health problem. Hope all is well now. Glad to see you back at it.
Some more work done on the door. Inside panel was warped so bad that the window molding wouldn't fit...so had to split it in several places and fiberglass it .
I grew up in Dayton,I met George almost 50 years ago.A guy I worked for took me to his shop.I still see hom occasionally.
