Isn't it amazing how all that stuff just piles itself up once you turn out the lights and go to the house ! (I'm still adding pegboard to my little garage).

Love the peg board option T, keep it comin. Car looks like it's coming together also. You start to see the fruits of all your labor from well awhile back.

Your shed looks great Roger . You need some wall art like a massive U S A flag and some corvette banners , Good way to fill the walls .

Mid day and so far so good. Put up a little wall art, then removed all the parts from the trailer and rolled out the 68. Drove the 71 around to the other side of the shop and removed the front clip that I had started work on. Good time to clean up the engine compartment be fore I install the new front clip. Also there are a few areas on the new clip that need some attention before going on. Busy morning but that's it!

RVZIO


Rolled the 68 in with the 71 front clip.

New clip is pretty complete.

71 project car with whats let of the front clip to be removed.

Head to head to make this transition a little easier for this old man.

Front clip coming off the project car. Will get the rest off after lunch.

Today I finished removing all the busted pieces on the 71. Got the pressure washer out and gave the engine are a bath. Then while that was drying I thought I would remove the front bumper, outside bumper brackets center shoe horn and hood. This would allow me to try (1 person) to remove the front clip to the ground. I had a short stool that I was able to use to the support the middle. Anyway for those interested it's off and now it's time to clean up the old adhesive from the bonding areas on the 71. Also notice that the rear wheel well flares were grafted on. Ran my hand inside and you could feel the flared edge. That tells me the upper body of the rear deck and the center cab are 68.

Roger,
I noticed some new items on your background wall that look interesting. A compilation of items and the flag(s) are interesting. Gives me some ideas for my garage when I can get it organized and clean. Nice!!!
I'll be watching from the Northern Woods of Lake Ontario for the next two weeks so keep up the good progress and report outs. Very cool.

Thanks David, wall art was fun doing. Still more to put up but just trying to things mean a lot. Basically today so far I was able to separate the body from the frame on the 68. Going to build a rolling chassis, put the body back on and roll it out. Then get back on the front clip for the 71. A lot going on right now in a packed house!

68 temporarily on the lift while I adjusted the dolly.

frame mounted on jack stands to be painted.

68 body on dolly

Full house party, c'mon down!!

Kinda of interesting backstory about mom and dad. Not sure if this happens a lot but Moms birthday was March 3 and Dads was March 4. Their Social Security numbers were exactly the same ending one digit off. So maybe they were standing in line not knowing they would at some point in time marry? Not sure how they were issued back then. I thought that was kinda cool, anyway ............................

I tend to agree since they did not know each other and at the time the only thing in common was they both lived in Queens NY which is a huge county. Oh well back to work!

This morning the wife and I went down to the shop to get the 68 body back on the cleaned frame. Then I can get started on the rolling chassis install. Just want to make it look nice for the next person. Then up for sale and back on the 71 front clip. Whew!, tired just talking about it.

Pretty soon we'll see RVZIO installing an assembly line conveyor system.
The old C3's will go in through the back door, get restored and then they'll be driven out through the front door and parked on his sales lot in front of his shop.
Maybe we'll even see a commercial on late night TV.
All kidding aside, Great work as always.
