    '60 hardtop restoration

    well, I thought it was a '60, some of the characteristics of the hardtop were correct, but key one which I missed until I went to put the roof back together was the roof hold down brackets. And that is when I found out that my hardtop was really a 56-58 (or something like that) and not a...

    what is the best method to put '63 hub cap covers on without denting them?

    I bought a real nice set of '63 hubcaps because the ones that came with the car had been beat with a rubber mallet getting them on the wheels and putting small dents in the perimeter of the cap. So what do most people do to get the hubcap on without putting dents on its outer edges?

    progress report on 63SWC restorod

    We got the body all mounted up and the doors set. We got the doors close, close enough for now. Because the stock radiator support on a 63 comes too close to the front of the SRIII frame, I had to get a different support. I called Clint up at Coffman Corvette after being advised by Rich L. and...
