slowly but surely

#1 Post by Hitchcock » Sun Jul 07, 2013 9:52 am

Just wanted to give you camaro and nova guys a progress report on the Corvette (the ultimate drag car) :twisted:

I have been working on getting the car rewired in my little shop. Now at work I wire stuff all the time, but it is usually 110/208/230 AC stuff. Before I started the car wiring I had never even changed a car stereo before. So there was a little learning curve, but it is turning out just fine. It s taking forever because the wife works 12 hour days every other weekend. And I have the kids at home on those days. Then between spending time with the family on her off days I usually get 1 day a month to really work on the car. So it is very slow going. But I am still hopeful that I will get the car out this summer or fall.

Good to see you making some progress... You're definitely going to have to work on your allotted garage time!

I know. And it never fails, when I tell her I am going to spend the entire day in the shop there is always something she needs me to go do. Like go to the pool with her and the girls, or put up a clothes line. The honey do list is ever evolving. I could spend more evenings out there after work, but its hard to get that motivation after a long hot day outside.

What wire company did you go with? Kit looks nice.
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:

Nice work there Hitch :)

I need to tackle this with mine. You look under my dash and it makes ya cringe...

One winter, in between motor issues, I'll get to it.
