    Hey DUB,

    I started removing sealant and factory gunk from the wiper compartment area. Some of the black sealant they used appears to be soft and tar like substance and under that it appears to be harder sealant that was squeezed out during part clamp up. I want the area to look nice when I am done so I prefer to remove the harder squeeze out bead at the edges of mating parts and reseal some kind of aftermarket sealant. I would like to get your opinion on this and I am sure you want to see some pics. I could post this on a general forum, but I don't really want to get opinions of everyone. I was planning to bring the car down to a shop to have the computer programmed, but this may need to wait as I might not want it exposed to the weather at this time. Let me know what you think about this topic when you can.

    On 06-11 At 2.00 pm we were hit by a lightning strike 30 feet outside the service department door. We were without power until we closed at 5.00 PM.

    The phones are now up and running, but we are having computer issues ( of all the machines in the buildings, only two are currently working). Hopefully this issue will be resolved soon but for now if you have a question about anything,...... please call.

    The emails to sales, service and support are still not working and our IT guy is on vacation until next week.... I hate to say it.. but pick up the phone and call if you have any question at this point there is nothing else we can do. -Willcox

    Is it feasible, practical or possible for me to bring my body on a rotisserie to you to do all the body work and get it in primer? Just thought I'd throw it out there for discussion. Let me know what you think.

    GOOD Morning my friend.
    I checked out the carb yesterday. It had been standing still for 10 days . No problem with the fuel as it squirted into the manifold right away. It took about 30 or more revolutions to get the engine started again. Could it be the coil or maybe oily plugs sit been a few years since i changed them but have low mileage. Think i will check them today.
    Thanks again my friend..
    Sincerely Marco Polo of Vegas.

    Hey DUB how are you. I've been away from my car for a while but now I'm getting back into it. I'm going to have a few questions before the body work starts and I was hoping to talk to you about it. I have a guy that I might have do the fiberglass work and I wanted to run a few things by you. One main thing is he suggested using gel coat, but I remember you saying Epoxy primer is the way to go. I'm using acrylic lacquer paint. How do you feel about gel coat?

    Thanks for all your advice on the forum. I've learned a lot from your responses to others. I would like to come down to Charlotte and let you look at my car. I have a couple of things I just need some professional and honest guidance. I'm in Kernersville and come come most any time that is convenient for you. Could you send me the name of your business and an address? Thanks.

    Hello Dub, Robert Pruitt here. We've messaged a few times about glass work. I've finally started my glass repairs. Would you glance at my post about C1 firewall and advise. Thanks

    Hey DUB,

    I'm not ready to start the fiberglass work yet since I have windshield repairs to do first but I do have a paint question. Keep in mind that I'm going to be using acrylic lacquer paint on my car. I want to get a coat of primer on the bare metal of the doors that I stripped. The body shop supply said I can use an epoxy primer on the steel and it will accept acrylic lacquer finish coat. Is that true? I only want to use this on the metal for now to keep things from rusting.

    Thanks, Ned

    Hi DUB,
    I just posted a thread on C3 General titled "repair or replace fenders" I would love to have your opinion on this.

    I am best know as "DUB". I opened my own custom Corvette shop in 1985 with nothing more than the desire to set a standard of excellence and quality in Corvette repair and I have strived to perform that on every job. I have paid dearly to the "school of hard knocks" and the knowledge I have acquired is priceless to me now. I do minor repairs to full off-frame restorations as long as quality and craftsmanship do not suffer. My reputation speaks for itself.
