Stopped by the shop today to check on the car. They have it painted and 98% wet sanded down. There are a few more items to deal with, but for the most part they are on the home stretch to the point that Harry thinks that they might be completely done with it come the end of next week.
Here are the latest photos.....

in the photo below there is a provision for a conduit tucked up inside the wheel well to run the wires from inside the car to the very front. All wires are to be hidden as much as possible and this enables that to be accomplished.

I really like the TORCH RED color from the C5......same color here...

The body and frame should be mated up some time early next week.....I am ready to get going on my part going forward......
All of my photos for this car are at this web site, now over 633... http://public.fotki.com/htmiata/1960_corvette/

Hope the end of next week comes quick! Looking forward to seeing pics of the completed project. That's PROBABLY the color that it should have been painted when it was new! Really like the conduit idea as well.

Looks great, going look even better sitting on its frame.

Good luck over the next couple of weeks
yes, I can't wait for that to happen.........it should look great. It is really low to the ground, hopefully it will still clear speed bumps!!! I had to get another floor jack that was 2.75" off the ground so that I can easily jack it up rather than continuing to fuss with my other jack which would not go under the frame!

Hello Herb
Your car is really looking sharp , the paint job is fantastic with the underside looking just as shiny as the top
I look forward to seeing more pics, especially with the body on the frame
