    What wheels for my 64?

    I am considering replacing these wheels with something in the 17" range. At the moment the fronts are 14" and the rears 15". I would still like to maintain black centres, but have no idea what is out there that would suit. All the fenders are flared and so can take a fairly wide wheel/tyre...

    Hydro Boost Brakes

    Has anyone already fitted or has considered going to a Hydro Boost set up in place of their standard Brake Power Booster? I'd like to bring one of these units back with me while I'm over there next month, so if anyone can help at all I'd be grateful. If for no other reason, the sheer novelty...

    My Poor man's 6 Link

    Here's my attempt at making my own 6 Link rear suspension addition. My idea was to come up with a top mounting bracket and strut rod set up that was simpler to make as well as using existing parts that were left over after buying Vette Brakes' Smart Struts which most people seem to end up with...

    I can't believe it's there!

    While scratching around under the now very spacious area where my rear end used to reside, I thought I'd just shove my hand around and over the petrol tank to see what might be there. Would you believe that there seems to be some paper stuck to the top of the tank? Could this be the much talked...

    Trailing arms...need a diagram or pics

    Pretty soon I'll be putting my trailing arms all back together. Well hopefully soon. I just want to make sure everything goes back the way it came out.... the right way. What I'd like is an exploded view or even a nice clear pic so I can see what goes where and also what can be seen so I can...

    Trailing arm progress

    Well here're the two T/As as they stand so far. One has had my personal attention for a while now. Every join has been fully MIG welded and smoothed (many times) tho not quite to my satisfaction just yet. I'll get there soon. So far all other parts have been cleaned and grit blasted and are...

    Spare wheel and tyre

    Who is actually driving around without the spare tyre/wheel fitted to their Vette? The one in my 77 is apparently the original that came with the car which virtually makes it useless as a replacement for any of the wheels on the car now. Aside from fact that I wouldn't trust it as a spare given...

    Trailing arm...down and out

    I know you've all seen a trailing arm before, but I just wanted to get a reference shot of what it looks like now that it's just been removed and what it'll look like after I've given it the magic Brutus touch....Sharkman knows what that's like.:eyerole Bob

    The Beginning of the End...Rear end that is.

    I took advantage of some inclemment weather here to get stuck into rebuilding the entire rear end of my 77. Day 1... Sway bar off...had only just put it in for last week's show and was pleased with the difference in the way the car felt and drove. Exhausts and mufflers removed from just behind...

    Fibreglass....How to.

    Does anyone know of any fibreglassing info that's available on line? More particularly mould making or anything to do with automotive applications etc. You can never have too much knowledge tho I'll never be accused of that. :confused

    Pics of my engine bay

    Well I've finally got my Vette back on the road and tidied up a little. It's no where near close to where I want it yet but I'm getting there. Just wait until I pull the motor! I've only just bought a digital camera yesterday so this has been the first chance to use it plus post some decent...
