OK, Smart people, I have a 69, original 300 hp, 350 in tact. I am having the original Q-Jet Carb rebuilt right now. Just ordered the original fuel lines & fuel filter from f-pump when I noticed that there was no Vent Line. The terd before me cut it off just before the back tire & crimped it, also fuel line is rubber all the way from the tank to f-pump.

HERE's the Question? Can I replace the fuel & vent lines while the body is on? I know I need to drop the tank to run new soft lines at that end, but can the hard lines be run from underneath on a lift????

Thanks Kevin (on an Island, no Vette support....)

Choosing a Supercharger

Grumpy, Great section! Looking at aftermarket Superchargers, is like walking into a beer store with many to choose from. I am leaning towards Lingenfelter. I want the best value with reliability. My plans are to have it installed by someone that has performed it many times.

I've heard stories of screw up costing a lot.

I am keeping my Vette with low miles as an investment and something to pass on to my son one day.

filling gaps

What to use, I have installed splash guards and I have small gaps between the fender and the splash guards, I need to fill them and then paint over the filler. What to use, any ideas?

frame swap

First time to the forum, just signed up and hope I am in the right spot. I have a question, I have a 75 C3 frame and I wanted to put a 68C3 body on it. I have heard that they are not interchangeable, but wondered if I have a good welding shop close by, is it something that CAN be done with a few mount modifications? I cannot find specific measurements on line that show the differences. Thanks.

you should start a new thread in this section. Would make it easier to find the answer.

You can do whatever you want. It just depends on the skill level and determination that you have. If you lack the skills then it just depends on the amount of money you're willing to put into it to make it happen.

HUD Bezel removal

Mr. Grumpy, I posted this in another section of general automotive & shop, don't know if you can see it or not so I'll double check here. Need to know how to remove these clips on the underside of my HUD Bezel. As you can see, trying to "lightly" pry one up I broke the top of the post off. Don't want to go any further without (divine) guidance. Thanks!

Well, I talked to the mechanic at the Stealership who works on 'Vettes, his answer was "pry them off gently" then hammer them down to refit. okay, slowly progressing now...

A small jewelers screwdriver and put it in the slots of the clip. Straighten them out a little so they are no longer touching the plastic. Keep prying each of them and pretty soon it'll just slide right off. Hammer or pry them back to a flst position and reinstall.
