    Just wanted to say thanks for taking time to post your long reply. I attack the issue and get back to you. Right now I have to glass shut the hole in the floor so I can install some new seat and 6 pt harness.

    Mr. Charlie, I removed the rear sway bar from my 82 today and took it out for a test run. It made all the different in the world, before it was dancing around, like it didn't know what way it wanted to go, Scary at the least. At 100 MPH. it stayed right where I aimed it. Thank-you ever so much. I appreciate the Advise. Doctorgene

    Yes Sir: Thank-you for the Imfo. on sway bars. I stayed with the org. springs,stock shocks, frt. sway bar,complete rebuilt suspension, frt. & rear,added same size rear sway bar, and when I get it up to 85 to 100 it feels like I'm in my rebuilt 57 chevy, kind of sways around the road, I mean, I don't feel as if I have complete control. Where would you suggest I might find this Imfo. on over swaying. Thank-you very much. Doctorgene

    Charlie,

    I was just wondering what your opinion was on some seats I am looking at. Can you take a look at this thread? I keep switching my opinion about which seats to upgrade to.

    http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c3-g...tom-seats.html

    After I finish the Oldsmobile this spring, I'm going to finally take the plunge and improve the seats, driver's position, pedals, and add some safety equipment before I get hurt (harness, roll bar, and Hans device). My biggest problem in finding a decent seat is my size. I'm pretty big at 6'2" and 250lbs so getting a good driving seat is quite the challenge.
