    I see the red car, but not the pics in the first post or another. I want to see and I will. Going to figure this out.

    The "pics" in the first and other post are actually youtube videos. I think you will have to upgrade your shockwave player to see them. Or go the easy route and search user "TheCorvetteBen" on youtube and find the videos there.

    Either method you choose is well worth the effort. This young man, and his car, are both exceptional!

    ^Yeah, I absolutely recommend watching them. I watched all of them in a row.

    HUGE improvement. Gotta keep the "emotional" juices flowing while hammering away at the grunt work!
    That is the perfect type of little pick-me-up that will put a smile on your face, while doing the important but un-seen mechanical work.

    Ben,

    Great videos, even though I own a '64, I'm learning from you. One thing I would suggest to make your videos even easier to watch is to use a tripod. Instead of running your camera along a piece of weatherstripping or whatever, try mounting the camera on a tripod and running the part past the camera. This would eliminate the jerky movements that are present on all of your videos. Some of us old farts find the "jerkiness" a bit distracting. Please accept this as constructive criticism, I have nothing but respect for you and the great job you are doing in the restoration of this lovely car.

    Regards from Down Under.

    I totally understand. I have been told this before, and plan on using a tripod for more of the upcoming videos.

    Youtube, well that makes since. After all the years of saying who watches that stupid site, starting about a year ago I saw why.

    Thank you for sharing.

    I feel your pain, guy! I recently finished restoring a 1969 Fleetwood Brougham. It took waaaay longer than I thought it would, cost abundle more than it should have, and I'm still making adjustments and corrections. But, every time I look at the car, I know it was worth it. Really looking forward to following your restoration. Keep up the good work!
