    and more fitting, but this time with a grinder

    it will be black when it's done - but I still have a bit more welding to do

    blanking plate to direct air to the radiator

    metal

    installed-ish

    welding aluminum is so easy

    getting closer


    now to decide how much splitter... the blue lines are potential cut lines

    We used to call when a car left the track And the way the Grass Flew, and the tire tracks
    left in it.......

    I plan on sharpening the edge and using it for grass trimming during the summer....

    narrower

    reality is I didn't like the extensions - so I narrowed it

    welding mounting tabs

    there is a danger to being on the ground....

    not sure how much of this I'll use

    mostly held by tabs


    in other news, another BB for another C3

    and aluminum heads

    onward
    time to start fitting

    easy so far

    now getting harder

    look at the top edges, as I start making the spoiler follow the side-to-side changes (it goes flat in front of the tire) that pulls the top in.... I also have to radii the part which follows the wheel opening. I suspect there will be more then on attempt at this.... and all of this to get hate from tracks because it has neither ABS no traction control... and as a bonus is not quiet....

    ah well, if it were easy....

I had a couple idle hotel days and decided to see how your car was going. It took all of those 2 days to read the thread! And WOW, you have done a great job on the Corvette! The car is awesome and better than I ever imagined it would become. And continually getting better. Anyway, I'm watching again and hope I can stay in the groove. Thanks for the new inspiration.

    Always wondered what happened to you!
    Don’t be a stranger!

    Missed you buddy congratulations on the nuptials - as I mentioned on your thread, the kid whose 57 Ford was in my shop bought a 59 Hawk.... it's black, red interior... neat, neat car. Helped him get it home.... that makes 3 people in my world who have Hawks. Anthony, you, and Les Leggott (high school mate of my dad's)
