Anything happening over there Bob?
Actually, so much has been going on I haven't had extra time to do hardly anything.
Lots of work at work, so my day there is really full.
I've been going crazy over the past week and for the next week and a half I will go even crazier, as our Corvette Club's annual Corvette show that I am the director of is in 10 days. While I did do a lot of prep work up until this point, there is tons to do in the last 2 weeks that really can't be done before that.
Once pre-registration closes, which it did last Saturday, and we now know everyone who is registered in the show and who will be vendors in the show, we now have to process all the pre-registrations, print the windshield banners, print the judging sheets, print the classification sheets, make everyone a goodie bag, print the classification sheets, lay-out the park, assign vendor locations, coordinate electricity for those who need it, assign personnel, perform walk-throughs, send hundreds of emails, and more. Oh yeah, I should also get the trophies made.
As far as the '65 goes, it went back into the A/C shop last Monday to get the duct work completed (now that I have a dash installed), relocate the dryer hoses which were blocking the location where the passenger side front bumper bracket was to go, relocating a hose that was rubbing on the fuel pump, and installing the electrical controls (also now that I have a dash installed).
I could have done the duct work myself, but it needed to go back in for the hoses as they had to evacuate the system, relocate the hoses and re-charge the system, and since installing the duct work was part of the installation package I paid for, I let them do it!
It all came out great. I picked up the car yesterday afternoon.
Also, the drivers side vent window frame came back from Virginia Vettes. The were welding on the new hinge for the vent window which was broken when I bought the car. They also polished the stainless steel on the entire vent window frame and the main window frame so well it looks like it was quadruple nickel-chrome plated. Really looks awesome
! The problem is, now I need to polish the other side just as well to make them look the same.
Next on the list is to install the front bumpers now that the passenger side bracket is installed, paint the door rain ledges and start all the final body preps for the last coat of primer sealer.
Starting to look a lot better, and still runs really good. Keeps up with traffic, and most low flying aircraft.
I have to start work now, more later.
