General Discussion / Buyer Beware
« on: March 08, 2016, 06:53:55 PM »
This the first 68 DZ block I believe I have seen..   ::)

Someone needs to go back to photoshop school..  Surprisingly I asked for better photos of the stampings through text and I havent heard a peep..

General Discussion / Delco Battery Toppers
« on: February 21, 2016, 10:41:36 PM »
I ordered one of the battery toppers a week or so ago and it came in last week so I went out today and got a new battery.  I cant take credit for this as I have read in other threads and posts of the toppers not fitting all the way down and having to open the holes up.  So I took to the dremel to get it close then used a socket wrapped with 320 sandpaper in a drill to even everything out..  I still have to modify the Delco Eye to make it look correct..  Hope to get to that sometime this week..  I failed to get a pic of the posts in relation to the openings before hand but you will get the idea..  Just thought I would pass this along to anyone else that maybe thinking of going the topper route.

Restoration / Friendly tip on Plastic Lenses
« on: February 14, 2016, 06:41:36 PM »
If you have scratches in your cluster lens or gauge lens dont waste money on new ones.  If you have a DA polisher use it along with #105, 205 & 7 to polish the plastic.  I even did a cluster housing but you have to be careful not to discolor..

Originality / Muncie Shifter Assembly
« on: January 26, 2016, 02:25:16 PM »

I put this in the Originality section due to this piece being preserved.  Purpose was to remove all rust and inspect and reassemble.  I found a new product on eBay called RUSTAWAY which is considerably cheaper than Evaporust and seems to work just as good.  Also using Cosmoline Rust Veto for the protection of bare metal parts. 

Here are the before on the Muncie shifter.

I know its a few hours early but I want to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year.  I hope everyone accomplishes everything they set out to do and maybe this year will lead to meeting a few of you at shows and/or swap meets.

General Discussion / Picked up a couple unrestored originals last night
« on: December 11, 2015, 01:58:56 PM »
I stopped by my mothers last night to help her with some organization of her kitchen after a remodel.  Found these that I had forgotten about and brought them home.  The green car was done by a family friend for my father.  The white 67 was done by my father back in the early 70s.

General Discussion / Annual Local Car Show
« on: October 18, 2015, 11:55:26 PM »
Spent the day at a local show that usually brings the cars out in the couple hundreds..  With the weather being in the 60's and sunny it was a perfect day for it.  Just shy of 500 cars and right at 10-15 cars (questimate #) in my class (Camaro modified)..  Classes and judging done by the local AACA chapter.

Took a few pics of the cars that I thought were cool  should have taken more but with talking with people and bsing I ran out of time..

Getting ready to head out to the show..


Some of the cars of the show.

My POS and I was lucky enough to bring home 2nd...

I am digging the new layout of the Cars of the Month..  Click on the 68 - "Feature Car" and take a look..  I think this would give people a better understanding of peoples' rides plus I personally like hearing the stories that go along with the rides..  Keep it up guys!!  I like it!!
