Those hood louvers are just asking for an Arduino sketch and a servo motor (maybe an under-hood temp/pressure sensor too)! I've delayed jumping down that rabbit hole (although I have a complete kit and some sample sketches) 'cause I really need to make some progress on the 'vette!

Cheers - Jim

as discussed before... rubbers

the most important is the one at the top of the radiator, without it and cooling is likely going to be an issue


onto metal work... radio block


headlight motor bracket





they will work, but I may remake themedited




basically it bolts to where the vacuum canisters were - next up, maybe remake and arms

onward with door panel replacement


You can $200 by reusing the internal garnishments.... that's per panel


the door lock plate is an exception - it requires being cut off then reattached... I used epoxy


looks lots better


still working on the motors
