Re: Hat trick (in a good way!)

Dont think the issue was the shock comment, It was the dig with the critter creek comment which didnt have much place in the conversation. I do appreciate the shock numbers. I will need these one day and I had no idea they where different until seeing all the threads here. Its nice to know we have o...

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

I painted my quarter window tracks as well with the exception of the tracks themselves. kept those bare, the lube for the tracks should be sufficient in keeping any type of rust at bay. Then again here in the southwest I dont have to worry quite as much about all the rust issues some of you guys see.

Re: The Snowball Saga - '68 Standard Revitalization Project

Nice work! Glad to see your sticking with this project over the years! I feel your pain on the over spray. I had a similar issue with mine but I have yet to get into the engine bay detail so it’s not near as bad. Got some issues under the dash I’ll have to clean up but my painter was pretty good wit...

Re: 68 standard, restromod driver?

I was able to spend some quality time in the garage with the old lady for fathers day! Gotta thank my wife for keeping the kids occupied for the day so I could get some good wrench time. Got a bunch of tedious stuff like all the wiring at the rear of the car back in, rear quarter windows installed. ...

Re: How to wire in a backup camera

At first I was thinking, "is this really any better than just - I dunno - looking in your mirror?" But now I can see that having the camera on the back of the car does give you a clearer view of what's behind you. Pretty cool little upgrade for those who are into the restomod thing, thanks for shar...

Re: Chrome...

yep steel wool and some effort goes along way. My chrome was pretty good but both bumpers where bent and tweaked so I ended up exchanging them. I checked locally and between the unknown turn around time and high cost it was actually cheaper to exchange through WCCC even with shipping. I even called ...
