Yup. You are a piker when it comes to clutter, a problem that I'm slowly rectifying.

As time flies by and the old Vette goes and a newer one takes it place and of course any 14 yr old car needs love. Just completing a High Press Power Steering Hose change out. With a satisfied look about me.

Nice! Been a vette guy all my life. Still miss each and every one I've let go over the years. I'm currently vetteless and the itch is starting again haha.

On the subject of garages (barn now) Every time I get a bigger garage I just fill it with more stuff...then say "When I get a bigger one I'm not going to cram it so full of stuff." I always manage to though.

and a buttload of "stuff" that we've been moving from house to house since I left Tucson in 1981, some of which has NEVER been out of the moving box since those days.

Yep. I'm a hoarder.

The car lives outside.

28 x 28 was the largest I could go with my garage due to city restrictions, large oak tree to the rear and 12 x 20 shop to the right. Just don't ever have enough room.
Use to have a 42 x 40 carport which half was for the wife and half for me.
Then she wanted a sewing room that took 20 feet off the back. So, then I had the part next to the fence to park the truck with boat and bikes and trailer in the garage and just what I was working on in the shop.
Then she wanted her parking space for a little outside patio and I got kick out of the carport parking. So, the trailer went outside , the boat again the bulkhead, truck in the middle, one bike in the shop and one in the garage.
Then came the Corvette a year ago this month so the truck stays outside.
Then sold the boat so the trailer went back to that spot.
So, that's the way it stands now. As in the picture 10 years ago but the tree in front and in back are gone now. And a shed added in front of the shop.
In the process of adding a 12 foot lean too in front of the Garage.

Sometimes you just need to get the camera out of the truck when you're doing your morning walk about because something unique shows up.

Had a lady I use to ride with lots up in Northern Arkansas that had a ZRX and would ride that bike most days a 150 mile round trip to the place she worked 5 days a week. Plus our weekend rides all over Arkansas and Mo. Lord knows how many miles she put on that bike. Have not seen her in about 10 years now.

Gotta catch up on what's happening in the garage. Due to adding to the blimish on the passenger's side of the nose ( bumper cover ) last week in an accident in Moss Bluff , La. Someone came off a side street into traffic and force a young lady into my lane and I could not miss her but almost had the car slowed down enuff to miss her when contact was made.
Leading to this damage.

So, being as I've been wanting to pull the nose section off to deal with the blimish that came with the car when I bought it. We went in the attack mode.

So , the gathering of intel on parts and stuff to repair and lots of You Tube and Vette forum reading followed.

As usual on these cars problem with the Daytime run lights, things get overheated
IMG_0970-1.jpg


So ordered new light sockets, LED bulbs and resistor to the tune of about 110 bucks.

Next fixing a broken light tab on the nose that the spot light and sig/dtr lights bolted to.

Not going to look really pertty but gonna get the job done.

Then accessing other damaged areas.

And after yesterdays application of epoxsy.

Found the headlight cover just too bad to attempt repair so have one coming from a slavage yard for 104 bucks. Need to sand it down but all is intact even though it came off a vette that had caught fire. No warping and just a bit of paint peeling on it. But no matter as I have to sand down everything and paint it anyhow. ;-)

To be continued as the project goes.

This what I'm repairing. 03 Corvette Coupe.
03%20Vette%201-1_1.jpg


Rebuilt the Signal/DayTimeRun light harness by replacing the sockets that were pretty burned up with 115K miles of use.

Waiting on the headlight cover to come in so I can sand and prime it to paint the Silver Metallic finish coat and probably a couple coats of clear. Or, I could just go ahead and paint the nose and put that together. We'll see how the winds of Fate blow me. ;-)
