Damn. What a great shade. I don't like orange or red, but somehow your color just works. What a great car, man.

Oh, I ran out of money a long time ago.
This started out to be a solid driver and totally got away from me. You know how it goes....
It will have side pipes on it sometime soon. Josh just wanted to put her on the road and see how everything works. Still a lot to do....

She made it home!
Josh pulled up about 11:30 one night and we unloaded it off of the trailer as quietly as possible. Needless to say my neighbors knew my vette was home.


Josh got to the side pipes done and they turned out great. They are pretty loud, but not really that bad until you get on it.



There is a lot of work to do yet and I should be on the road this spring. I took it around the block a few times but without plates or brake lights a loud, bright orange vette is a ticket waiting to happen. I have to install vintage AC and wire everything inside and do a stereo. Then put the interior back in. (Ack)
I got the tail lights wired up last weekend and am happy with that. It is really difficult for a phone camera to show them apparently. Here they are though.


The halos are actually much better defined then is shown in the photo. When the brakes come on the center led lights up and the corvette script gets much more intense.

I am about to start putting all of the window hardware back in now.
I will post more when I have something to show for my work.

Josh is a nice guy, did he give you a commission for your part in the sale of the bits to me?

Lol. I wish. Actually, he helped me out so much on my build I gladly send business his way. It is the least I could do to return the favor, and I know he will take care of them.
So what fun stuff did you get?
