    Dub,

    Not sure if you will remember me. I bought a Sunflower yellow 72 stingray and came by your shop about two years ago. Low miles, almost original, but had considerable birdcage rot. I've sold the car (made a profit) and I have some parts I found that were never used. 1 dark saddle interior A pillar - driver side, 2 gas tank neck gaskets, 1 set filler neck screws, 1 gas tank seal/lock ring. These are all new in the box/bag. If your are interested, I'll come by sometime and drop them off. Free. I can email photos if desired (just let know to what email)

    Good evening DUB, Thanks for all the great info on the phone the other day, I'm still working on the fit up of the 75 front bumper and have more questions, I have it clamped in place and still can not get it low enough to align with valance and high enough to get near the nose to use filler, still too large of a step up to the body, i also thought i should try to place the L/R grills into their proper locations and the bumper openings are too small to allow them to enter, and way out of shape so much i would have to cut the opening too far into the bumper-ette to make it even close, is their a proper spec. or demention for this opening, and also a size of the bumper hight at its peak, mine just seems way too narrow to even rebuild here at my shop,,,,,THOUGHTS? thanks,,,teddy,,,my personal e-mail = [email protected]

    Got your request. You know i was just discouraged as the 1st panel aligned great so i thought i had enough experience to do the 2nd one. Well I will have to re align the bezel around the inner door handle with is all glued in place but i know the original manufacturer most likely set the mold about 1/2 in off. if i try to adjust the inner door handle mechanism then i would have to adjust all the rods. I will move the door panel (drivers side) 1/2 inch forward in order for the lower door clip to reach the screw hole and get past the edge of the door. I will look at the bezel later as been busy with plants, electrical outdoor receptacles (done now) and other stuff to keep me busy while retired. Never a dull moment here. this weekend going to hit 107/08/09 degrees so will not spend much time in the sun. Got i got a 200.00 car cover with 10 year guarantee . God bless to you and the wife.

    Discouraged as i have spend hours aligning the fittings on my new 69 inner door panels i got from ZIP> . The panels are built much better than the originals although there is a lot of prep work taking the old hardware off and repositioning on the new panel. Got the last one in place and noticed the door locking stud that the lock and unlock knob is to the left of the stud by a lot. I already positioned the hardware on the exterior so it proves to be my next dilemma unless i can move the inner door handle assembly to the left but then the rods will have to be adjusted. It appears that the door mold on that panel was not quit molded to the hardware. Do not know if i can move the outside bezel back enough as then i have to redo the inner studs after i have already gorilla glued it all in position. What a hassel as i was so close to finally finishing it up. Bummer...

    Hey DUB,

    I started a thread in this but thought I'd PM you in case you miss it.

    All is going well with the painter except that today I noticed a light amount of dust had gotten behind the cluster lens's even though the painter had previously covered them in plastic.

    Have you ever encountered something like this before? If so, how can it be removed short of pulling the cluster? If not, got any suggestions? Thanks

    Biography
    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.
