I really didn’t like flares until I came across your car on another forum.
After googling CIC flares & a fair bit of stalking to track treads that you, Josh & Corvette Chick have responded to I am a flare convert. Now I just have to find an economical way to get them to Oz.

I have read up on the Mistress, Larry , Intruder & Michele, currently reading Kaos.
Are there any other threads you could recommend? CIC-build related or just fiberglassing in general.


Thanks again on a great thread. And a huge congratulations on an awesome Corvette.

Wow, thanks!
"Larry" wow you really have been doing some reading.
Eli has a vette that drove through the CIC garage and came out the other side with the 2" flares and the car looks stunning. He has thread here. Rocoo's vette got some CIC love and also looks damn sweet. If you have not found the threads on those let me know and I will dig them up for ya.
69 dirty rats car just kicks ass down under in Sydney, I believe. Not CIC flares, but another good example of how evil a flared c3 can be. Plus he has the same wheels as I do, so it must be cool.
I am assuming shipping is a lot for something like that. Do you need other stuff that could be combined and maybe make it less expensive overall?
Let us know what you find out. We would love to follow along if you get it worked out.

I will personally take some of the responsibility-

I work for sherwin Williams and there is a product called ac10 made by hi lite solutions. It's a rust remover and will leave a phosphate residue that can be coated over. Works great.I will look into those seats when I find the money laying around with nothing to do. I have some c4 seats but I would really like to have the recovered. That price for the seats is probably less than I would spend recovering mine.
Now... Tell us about the door panels?
Hey, this is all wrong. You are the new guy doing a swap and here we are all asking YOU all the questions!
Looks like you have things under control and the build looks like it is coming along well.
Btw, cyber gray was one of my final choices when I was picking out colors.

I think I read that part in another post and copied it and pasted it to an email to myself so I would remember the name and look into it later. I do that a lot. I must have still had that on the clipboard and accidentally hit paste in the middle of that reply. Sorry about that.

Wow, if you add superjames' vette to the list you have a pretty complete listing of my favorite flared vettes.
https://www.digitalcorvettes.com/foru...d.php?t=148528
There will be others soon if josh has his way about it. Riggs and mark will be on there soon. 7t is up and running!

I have been putzing around with small things on larry of late. Cleaning up the wiring under the hood and just finishing up stuff. I do want to pull the dash and console one more time to change some stuff around, but am making a list of everything I need to get done so that when I do, I get it all done. Anything that takes the car off the road is getting pushed back to the "winter list" I am having too much fun driving the damn thing. I am slowly getting the vintage AC installed, but it has been so nice this summer there is no big push on that.


I am going to need to change my avatar. This childish nonsense has gotten totally out of hand. I know in "other" places they take this stuff way more seriously.
Which is why I spend most of my time here.

Yes, and what you will save, in the end, should be worth a fat, golden, killer necklace ! Multi-chain, better than Brent`s !

I was watching SuprJames vid's on youtube but couldn't find a build thread. (I've had some spare time -nightshift & 50knot winds)

Freights by weight, I could never afford to bring that bling over. On second thoughts I might be able to sneek it in if I can borrow his budgee smugglers

I did find a time lapse vid of what looks like CIC panel fitting as well.
Sorry can't embed vid

Still at it. I have had a hard time finding time to work on the vette. Seems I get home from work and would rather go driving out on the county roads then finish the car. The weather has been perfect all summer and hate to take her off the road to do any work.
It got hot the last couple of days and is raining today so I pulled the radiator out. More on that later.
Sidepipes and I went to a show in Washington Iowa. Got third in the vette class. I felt pretty good about that. Here are the cars that should have gotten first and second in no particular order.
This 58 is an all original survivor car. Pretty amazing to see.



Forget the year, but this one had a really nice restoration done on her.



When they announced the winners it kind of sucked. They said "class x goes to joe blow". I did not know what categories they were presenting much less which cars won. I did remember the owner of a c6 that had all sorts of bling on it and a really nice stereo in back. Blinking LEDs in the tail lights to draw in folks like moths. I know he got second so one of the two cars above was shut out. Not how I would have voted, but I will take it.

Anyhow I got the radiator out. We did not realize it until the night before the power tour that the steam ports are crimped off. I had driven a thousand miles like that and had no problems, it was too late so we went with it. It did not overheat in the dells, so .. I don't know. Anyhow I thought I should fix it anyway. I am going to take the radiator to a friends shop and weld in a bung to run the tubes to.

Taking care of cleaning up some wiring while the radiator is out. As I was doing that I noticed this on the drivers side upper control arms:




Yikes! I drove quite a ways to go to a guy who was recommended to me. I really don't think he put them in that way, but rather they came loose and slid over into the gap. What are your thoughts?
Back at it. Gotta get this done so I can put it back together and go driving.
