Re: Central Virginia Owners

Hi Mike, and welcome to the forum!

Sounds like you've got quite a project on your hand. At least you got a decent deal. Let us know if there's anything you need advice on. Many of us have been there and done that.

Re: Project update

Hey guys, Been making some good progress on the Corvette. I'm on vacation this week and have been able to spend a few days in the garage turning wrenches with a few days still ahead of me. It's been slow going, fitting up all the bumpers, brackets, emblems, etc is a slow process. It's incredible how...

Re: Photo Bucket Photo Hosting

What did you do and how do we now post photographs? I was able to download a scripts that scanned all the posts on this board for links to externally hosted photos. Those links were saved to a database table. A second script was run that downloaded each linked photo to my webhost. Lastly, I'm runni...

Re: Photo Bucket Photo Hosting

Yeah, a bit of tinkering here and there. Working on fitting all the trim back to the car one last time to make sure everything fits properly before sending it out to paint. I also got the power brake booster replaced with a new one and am happy to report the brakes are working much better. Planning ...

Actually there are two out there as of Friday :D
Well, I'm sure you're fine with them as long as they stay out there... I'm sure it gets old boarding up the house every couple weeks. :ack:

Re: Photo Bucket Photo Hosting

Hey everyone. Happy to report I've resolved all the dead crapbucket links. Everything should now look like it did before photobucket pulled the rug out from under all of us.

If you notice any dead photo links let me know and I'll look into it. :thumbs:

Re: New Vette resto project--WV

Hey guys , thanks. Trailered my car in last night, my wife was a little surprised, she knew it was a project but I don't think she knew what to expect. Bette is in storage until at least winter, I've got 60 acres to take care of, doesn't leave much time for tinkering. I hope to get the body dolly b...

Re: New Vette resto project--WV

Welcome to the forum, I've always been a bit partial to war bonnet yellow myself.

Looking forward to hearing about your project and perhaps seeing a few photos. If there's any info you need just shout, it's likely someone here will have some first-hand experience to share. :thumbs:

Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

Photo Bucket just sent me the email that I need to pay their ransom if I want my photos to stay on 3rd party web sites and forums. Screw Photo Bucket. I down loaded all the pages on this forum, put them into a Word document I can re-load them later opportunity arises. Welcome to the club. :rolleyes...
