New guy in here. I am a member on other Vette forums and have found them to be Very helpfull. I have an 81 about 1/2 way done thru a Frame Off Restomod. I have worked thru Suspension, Brakes, Birdcage rust, destroyed front clip and a bunch of other stuff.
I try to contribute at least as much as I get from here. So, If I can help I would be happy to. Just ask.

...and the L81 forum. You won't find a nicer, more knowledgeable group of Corvette enthusiasts on the planet!!

Feel free to tell us about the restomod you've got going and post pix if you've got them too.

Enjoy!

SIXFOOTER ~ Welcome Aboard ~

:w SIXFOOTER,

Sounds like you have yourself into a Real Project :upthumbs we have another member: Peer81 (Peter)
from the Netherlands that is getting close to a complete body off resto/mod project on his 1981. If you do a search for post by Peer81 it is amazing to watch/listen to this young man going through his 1981.

I got to say I admire y'alls mind set and talents. Don't be a stranger. Enjoy your project and we don't mind watching and viewing photos :D

And this was a week or 2 ago. Since then I have the engine cleaned up, new shiny manifold, timing cover, valve covers done, and a bunch of other little stuff. Couple more weeks and I'll be ready to fire it up

Very cool! :cool Welcome and look forward to seeing the finished product. I'm pretty tenacious, but I don't think I could get through a project like that. Thanks for resurrecting another L81.
