Any idea if the glass packs are Porter's ? I've looked at them at BTTF but never purchased a pair. Always wondered how they sound.
No idea Mitch. I'll look at them closer to see if there is any sort of stamping. Once I have the car running again, I'll take a short video. Hopefully it will pick up the sound correctly. I've got part of the dash apart to replace a bad tach cable. It was not routed correctly when the dash pad was done and it's pinched / broken. Say it with me.......PITA

On a different note, I ran into a first for me (I'm sure not for some of you others). The owner that had the car since 83, was obviously quite fond of the car. I was told a story that some of his (Lee) remains were under the drivers seat. They weren't BS'n.........

Lee now is properly dressed for rides.


I sure as hell don't need any bad karma

Some it has a consistency of undercoating. It would not surprise me if it was undercoated. My next step will be my GoJo hand cleaner trick, especially by the rockers. That is the least caustic. After that, I'm with you Bill on the thinner. That will be a wobbly day

----I also am a bit wary using Lacquer thinner on the inside of an exterior painted panel. Just in case it might bleed thru (which I have seen happen).....Bill S

Tim,

Here you go again with another fabulous Corvette and great stories attached to that particular car.
I (we) always look forward to napa68 threads and posts.
Like a little boy in a man’s body enjoying his new toys. Cheers to that 🍺🍷.

You know how I feel about a 60’s automobile dressed in White with Red.

Congratulations, Chris.

Whoa, I don't know about having something like that in a car I own. Seems a bit creepy...
On a different subject, get a respirator to block out cleaning fumes. I use it for painting but it blocks out the lacquer thinner fumes too. I buy mine at Harbor Freight for $20. The bag it comes in is a zip lock and you can store the mask in there for a long time and it will keep the charcoal viable for the next use.

Really nice Tim. Great car that looks and runs real well and you can have some fun and drive it. Best kind of classic muscle for me. No lawn ornaments!

Gorgeous car Tim! Was Lee in that baggie or just a pile of ashes on the carpet? I agree…a little creepy!

I think I'd be tempted to sprinkle that into a planter at the Corvette Museum than drive around with it in my car.
