Been a while since I had anything worthy of reporting.
Recently got a pair of new repro front fenders from a CL ad, $300.00 for the set, never on a car.
Just ordered the patch panels for under my rear window and a replacement "Package shelf". (WTH would actually SIT on that narrow curved panel anyway?)
The happiest news is that today I picked up a one-owner ex-67 Corvette M20 for $550.00.
Seller kept insisting it is an M21, I did not bother to argue as I would be happy with either.
Respect for the elderly and all that.
I have confirmed that it IS an M20.
And two hours later I found an M22 for only $200.00 more
, but not as clean.
No shifter or bell, so more parts to buy when I can.
But at least I know it's not a drag racers trashed junk.
Looked inside, looks like new.
Even has the original tag under the side cover bolt, 3870354.
Gave up on recycling the rear quarters from the donor rear I bought.
They looked good, and the drivers side could be used but is a bit thin below the body line.
Passenger side is worse, seems silly to patch a patch panel.
So the next big item planned is new rear quarter panels.
Found a dealer closer to me than EC Store, AZ instead of FL, so I should save on shipping.
If funds allow I hope to sort out the rust fairly soon, clean metal will look like a whole new car.
But I do not dare finish the paint until I get the new chassis and IRS under it.
