And, BTW, THANK YOU for taking the time and effort to replace all the pics that were lost in the PhotoBucket Nightmare!
I can't imagine how much work that was!!
I just read the whole thread again from the beginning (should have it memorized soon) - The documentation is PRICELESS! Especially to a guy like me. This is what a GOOD forum is 'all about'... and THIS is a good forum!

Fantastic work - Attention to detail - 'plan the work, work the plan' - Hard to tell that you are an Engineer - D'oh!....
Still, I have a heard time fitting in the car - Even one that's done as sweet as yours.....
I guess I gotta get creative - or shrink?
I'll be picking you brain some - thanks for the offer -
Bottom line - YOU DID A GREAT JOB!
(And you call yourself a noob?)
Thanks Mike! - It was a pleasure meeting you and your son at the Dream Cruise! I loved both your passion for cars and excitement over the Vette! It's so cool when people understand the level of detail that goes into the execution of such a project.

Anytime you need some help, let me know.
Take care!

No problem! It's a slow process, indeed. Once Torch pointed out how to post pictures here, its just a matter of finding the time to repost all the links. If there is anything you need in the meantime, just let me know.
It's going to be a slow process for replacement as the pictures have to be found, compressed for size allowance and re-posted.
As mentioned previously, these pictures are invaluable to someone trying to follow our footsteps. It's critical that in the end, photobucket doesn't get to control that.

Slowly but surely!
Steve

Nothing New, Just some more photos

Hey guys,
Been a while!
The Vette is fantastic. Just enjoying driving it around, doing an occasional show & some cars & coffee events locally.

Thought I would check in and share a couple of photos taken by some folks that flag me down during some of my drives! Its so cool that some folks have such a reaction to the car!

When heading home with a buddy from cars & coffee, I had this car fly by me on the highway then slow down, the passenger window comes down (this is when my buttcheeks began to clinch) and out pops the passenger with a hefty camera hanging halfway out of his car snapping pics while we are doing 80mph!

The second, is a photographer from Toronto who he and his buddy waved me down while cruising. He's got some great skills and promises more pictures coming soon.

Enjoy!

Woodward Dream Cruise

Been awhile since I last posted.
Update - Horn "ferrari" style dual horn with compressor installed. Sounds great!
I still owe everyone a walkthrough video! Got to get on that!

Driving and enjoying.
Here is a picture a friend took while cruising Woodward this last Thrusday night. Car Rocks!!!!

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit
