    I have yet to master the art of C3 window glass, I can't even get the stuff in and out of the door. I do have an old Haynes manual now that has some info.

    Take it from me, when some people with wives/kids and camera phones can't sit IN a stranger's car they think is pretty they'll sit ON it and my, the pouty little faces when they get chased off.

    driver's side done more detail
    pull wires

    actuator install

    it was simply easier to weld a tab to the rod to connect it all up

    and just like that, connected

    and reassembly of the dash

    once the right side regulator gets here, I'll assemble the right side.... between now and then, I have plenty to do... some of the aero should be here tomorrow....

    Or smart enough not to tell the rest of the story while the statute of limitations run.

    Door locks. I've actually come out to people sitting in my car. They still live, but let's slow the idiots down

    weld a tab to the lock bar

    all fits under the panel

    of course this door can't go together because I'm waiting on a regulator.

    window alignment and locks.... but tonight... all alignment so you get a couple pictures

    it took a lot of fitting and elonging holes to get everything to line up

    not joking, this is where I started, was worried at Optima they'd call me on this... thank god the FiTech computer scrambled... sheesh


    of course, what would a night in the shop be without needing parts - the regulator on the driver's side is new, the passenger side is not and it needs replaced.... ah well, I have plenty to do in the mean time.

    it was a shuffle day, so it ended with wiring on the Corvette... however, well... some old friends got moved
    as with all great things... I had to 'just' change a fuel filter... what an ordeal, seems the last owner didn't bother putting one seal in place - which made the fuel filter pointless.... grand

    so plan b was employed

    moved to get this back in the shop

    I can't believe how rough this car is.... ugh

    installed in its new home

    the day finished with me getting this reinstalled

    most of the reason I took the dash out was to put speakers and clean up wiring... also, to install the remote door locks... first speakers

    epoxy is great for stopping rattles

    and speaker installs


    I'd never put a stereo in this but it's what gets me points.... next up is reinstall, align the windows, install the remote locks, install reverse lights.... all for the points

    time to clean up some wiring and install the radio
    easier to just take it apart

    one of the really cool things about the Dakota Digital dash is it's 2 plugs to remove it all

    and install the chassis

    the vent didn't secure to the dash pad... fixing that and that stuff can fall into it

    the tabs will hold the duct to the dash pad... all epoxied in place

    now no stuff down the vent
