I began the body work yesterday and as I pulled all the trim and bumpers my brother DA sanded one fender and some other spots. I'll post pics tonight if I get in at a decent time as it's a 5 hour trip on way.
The body work is fun. After 3 months without seeing my Corvette I was having a mental breakdown and going nuts:surprised I took off all the trim except the luggage rack (my bro did that) while he DA'd the fender. I bought my own DA but it lasted about 5 seonds then the shaft went to wobbling:thud: so as I returned it he worked. I can't wait to do some DA'ing on my own. The passenger bumper has a bolt that won't come free and the impact I was using wasn't very strong so when I come back I'm bringing my IR 2135 Titanium to break the bolt free. On the front driver side the bracket that holds the acuator was very weak and when I removed an outer bolt it snapped so now I need that bracket and some new bolts. I'll keep the pictures rolling in as I do work:thumbsup:Very cool! Look forward to watching the progress.
I'll be wrapping up my body work in the next weeks, whew!
That would be coolartyon: I'lll get some of the local Corvette owners to join as well. What is the name of the business that rebuilds the A/C units? There is one off of 45 South that redoes them.Thats great 72SBVet I dont live but 70 miles from you, when I finish mine we need to get together and cruise a bit and there are some others up around Memphis that might join.
I found a add on craigs list from a business in Jackson that makes and rebuilds A/C compressors. When I get to the point I need my compressor I am going to give them a call and see if they can help me

Will do :cheers:He said they were pretty good. I guess they started back doing it for the public as they quit duit doing public and only did factories. Before you come just shoot me a PM as I'm only around 10 minutes from them and you can see my brothers 74 Corvette as we repair it:thumbsup:
