I like that underhood lighting placement, very clever! The blue on the gauges also looks great!


No cool signature because Photobucket is a bucket full of douches.

Thanks man.. I'm going to mock up all 3 and see how it looks before I decide if I will keep them. But your gauges take the cake, I have always loved the way they look. I really wanted the z26 cluster.

I got lucky and my base came with the upgraded cluster, but it also came with the trunk release option... it's a highly optioned base, lol. I've still always loved the early models with the digital clusters though!

Got my new strut brace all painted up I went pearl black on the outsides and a so called stainless steel look alike on the inner. Turned out pretty sweet. The pics don't do any justice but I'm throwing them up anyway. I also did the Lumina rad to strut bars pearl black just have to clear them. I put 2 of my 20's back on the other 2 are off to get the beads sealed them back on the car.

Got my drivers door and new fuzzies installed also sun visors and stereo will post more pics soon

Sweetness. Good to know what it looks like, I had just picked some up earlier that day for my valve covers, lol.

Keep up the progress man!

One didn't have the Corvette logo as part of the casting?

So what part of Southeast Asia do ya think that one came from?

Just a thought!

Took her out for the first time in 4 years. Had a few issues but I had a great time rollin her for the first time after all my work.

Issues:
Rpm kept sticking at 2000k only after driving when starting it idles fine.
Trans was hard to shift especially from 1st to 2nd
Rad fan quit....... resulting in road side fix

Took some pics of it outside

New fuzzies!!!!!!!
