    Electric emergency brake system

    I thought about it. Sure would clean up the console area. $550 for the E-stop is nuts. You could do it easy for less than $100.

    Manual window rebuild kit

    I don't want anything for the parts. It's just extra stuff that I have. All the tracks, arms, latches etc. Looks like you need the rollers and wear parts. You can get them from Keen Corvette, they are in Cleves not to far from me and it's a store so you can ask them what you need. They...

    Don’t see these much anymore

    Looks like it's still available. I'm kind of surprised. It will be interesting to see what happens with collector car prices with the current economic slide we are on. And, the aging of the current population of buyers.

    Radiator Fan Control, Off When not Running

    I would like to turn my radiator fans off (even when hot) when the engine is not running. Thought about putting them on a pressure switch but I'm not sure how long it takes, after the car is turned off, to bleed down. Trying to keep the fans from coming on at the same time when restarting...

    Where Can I Get 3/4" Cup Seals?

    I am working on something (not car related) and I need to find 3/4" cup seals like are used in master cylinders. I could get a rebuild kit if I knew an old car that had 3/4 inch seals. Mcmaster sells these but nothing below 1 1/2"

    Ride Height with Fiberglass Leaf Spring

    I have installed a VBP Dual Mount spring (front and rear) on my car. When I installed it, I set the ride height at a predetermined position. This was done with the weight of the car resting on platforms with a polyethylene slip sheet on top so the tires would be able to move laterally with...

    2023 Corvette LT6 Engine

    I heard about this new Z06 on the news. The reporting sort of made it sound like GM is wasting it's time developing internal combustion engines (when they should be building electric).Who's the first to put this in an old Camaro...

    Dunlap Offset Ratchet Screwdriver

    I have an old Dunlap offset ratcheting screwdriver that belonged to my Dad. The one I have is a flat but I think I remember he had a Phillips also. Seems like 2-3 times a year I have a need for that and a bent one will not fit. I end up removing the screw with a tiny channel lock. The...

    Door Latching Problem- Solved by Conversion to Electric!

    I have replaced the door latches on my 68 with later (74?) latches that I cleaned and lubed with lithium grease. Before replacing the latches, the doors closed pretty poorly. They would "bounce" open (from fully closed) about a 1/2 inch before the latch would catch.Without changing...
