I will fit this after its running. Cool piece to have after start up.
Will need to repair the seam pull and also add a roll bar pocket.

Makes it a three season adventure............

Hi Jeff,
Lovin the period correct goodies! Not to affect the patina look,
but if you're looking to add a little better visibility to the rear
window, try using Meguire's Plastx maybe on the inside. I've
had great luck with it.

Yup, roll bar need pocket. I had my top off this summer. When I reinstalled it, I was able to get a little better fit. Things stretch...

I had mine done in CA(where I lived at the time), after I finished the car. It looks a little different than how ERA does it. We're close enough ERA that I'd just take it down & have them do it, now. You might check with English car clubs to see if they have a good recommendation. We have an English car meet here in Stowe, every summer.

Ok, spring height and the G6 were not jiving. Picked up a set of 7.75-15 Power Cushion, looks much better and front fenders cover better......

I think anyway, slight spring settle and we are in......

SPAX also makes shocks for the leaf spring chassis.

They, SPAX, are on my car, dampening the buggy spring.

Hi Jeff,

Haven't seen the name "Power Cushions" since scrubbing the whitewalls on my Dad's '67 Pontiac LeMans Sprint. I really wanted him to spend the extra $22 for the redline Wide Ovals. Don't recall them being much of a performance tire, but I see they came on new Corvettes in 1967. Looking forward to seeing you again in August.

Jeff ~ I sure hope you're planning to produce a nice video introduction once the car is complete. A full walk-around with on-road drive.

Your work and attention to detail have been inspiring and the car is coming along beautifully. Can't wait to see it on the open road.

Yup

I will make a grand video.........
After all this time its a must. Of course the process is time, money and effort which time has been an issue as of the last couple years.

On it though.
