Re: C2 fibreglassing


Ok so fibreglassing appears boring, now we move on to the diff and rear suspension.

Re: C2 fibreglassing and stuff


Rear axle back on with car on four wheels I jacked it up onto stands so I can put steering and brake cables/ lines on. Super clean under there.

Re: C2 fibreglassing and stuff


Yesterday I dragged out '63 dog of the year and spent 3 hours removing chassis and dropping it on a 68 chassis. No one wants '68's so chassis's are easy to come by!

Incase anyone is interested, surprisingly a c3 chassis is 4 inches longer behind the diff carrier. I'll put suspension on and splice in rear 1/4" of old 63 chassis.

I guess Frank that given the 'fact' that 'no ones wants '68's 'no one' will care that a '63 is about to be significantly improved Readit Doh

Ross as you should gave guessed, just trying to bait you 68 owners into posting, it's all gone quiet on here for projects.
