    We lowered the body onto a flat trailer so I can move it out of the way until Spring. I'll soon begin stripping the frame.

    Thanks Adam!

    I previously mentioned your 'Vettes to the owner of the C8. I should've sent you a pic of his, didn't think of it.

    My VIN:    4519

    This weekend I removed the headliners and dropped the tank. Good news on both; the headliners are in good shape & cleaned super easily (like, <1 min. each piece,) and the frame in the tank area has no epoxy issues. The closing plate has a small amount of bubbling.

    The closing plate bolts have anti-seize on all of them, so I'm thinking whoever worked on the MS leak also dropped the plate to rinse away all the brake fluid. Would there be any other reason to remove the closing plate?

    I also moved the body around the other side of my house, into a safe spot for the winter.

    Hopefully pull the engine soon. I also need to decide on replacing the AC hoses (or not.)

    Things are progressing well, and I have good momentum with many different jobs in play.


    -Seats are disassembled, waiting on frame rail paint
    -Seat rails & engine compartment brace are prepped & ready for paint
    -Axles are painted and ready for CV rebuilds
    -Cooling pipes had a quick clean, ready for a more thorough cleaning
    -All brake components are completely disassembled and almost ready for plating
    -Frame work began, prepping for spot repairs [flaked epoxy] is probably 50% complete
    -Started coating headliner boards
    -Parts for plating ~50% ready
    -Transmission is separated from the engine
    -Wheels & new tires are ready for delivery for powdercoating

    Progress dude! Keep plugging away.... It's crazy how much you've done so far. What did you end up deciding to go with for frame paint?
