For those of you that know me, it's been a really long time coming, but I'm actually starting to see some miraculous progress on my car. I don't have the best photographic evidence as yet, but I'll show you what I have.
As you may or may not recall, I brought my dad's corvette out to Brooklyn from Scottsdale, where it had been sitting abandoned by me 5 years ago. I finally got it here in April, and I vowed to get the thing back on the road. I was originally hoping to do a good part of the restoration work myself, but that turned out to be a stupid idea. First, I work too much. Second, I work too much. My dad and I found a shop in Valley Stream, NY called Corvette Repair, Inc. which is about 45 minutes from my apartment.
These guy are meticulous and they do amazing work (for a cost). I've been bringing them parts in tubs and boxes for the better part of the summer.
I've been seeing moderate progress for the past few weeks, but not the parts are all starting to come together and it's pretty GREAT! They tell me that they're a few days away from finishing the chassis.
Now all that's left is the rest of the car. My mission for today, is to clean it up and remove everything that's not made of glass - fiber or the other kind. More on that later....
