  5. Radiator Cleaning Tool

    Mine's only 2' long. Used 3/8" copper tube, brass compression fitting to mate with a PVC female hose fitting. I use an everyday pistol grip spray nozzle to attach to a hose and the wand to control the water flow. I drilled two 3/16" holes near the end and then crimped over the end of the tube. It looks a lot like the one Charlie made, since his design was my inspiration. When I use it, I put a thin sheet of plastic between the radiator and the condenser before blowing water through the radiator to keep the crap from sticking into the condenser. Then when doing the condenser, the plastic protects the radiator from damage by the wand.

  9. Bought and modifying c3

    Very true about spending time with our kids. Unfortunately my kids grew up while i was starting a business from scratch so I missed out on a lot. Thats why I retired and moved to AZ so that I could be close to both of them and spend as much time with them now to help make up for lost time. Bummed about the Flagstaff run having to cancel but at least my daughter is coming for next weekend.
  10. Ground up build of my 1970 vette

    Thanks, Really bummed that the run to Flagstaff had to be cancelled due to the road construction. I was really looking forward to getting the car out for a good run. Hoopefully soon. Rob
  11. I may end up being a "one post wonder", but I figure I'd try to find a home for my old Vette here, among people that might give it a dignified fate. This car was my daily driver until recently, when it developed some expensive problems, and after almost 208k miles, I finally had to make the call. It makes me sad; this was my dad's car, and the first Corvette I ever drove. I took care of it as much as I possibly could. I intend to be very up front about its problems. The engine is going (i.e. the coolant keeps coming out brown and muddy), the radiator recently started leaking, and although the condenser fan and its wiring seem fine, the switch that turns it on is probably broken, but that's under the intake manifold, so it's expensive just to look. There are plenty of aesthetic issues; the front bumper has been skinned twice, the soft top isn't reusable (though it's still waterproof), and the interior is worn. Other than that, the car is in good shape -- I spent a small fortune over the years to keep it running. It's been consistently garaged, car-ported, or at least covered since I got it (in early 2005). It lived in California until 2010, when I moved to Arizona. The corner of the bumper here is cracked; I tried to patch it up, but it's not really my field. That corner of the bumper just has someone else's paint on it. Yes, it has a tow hitch! At least the paint still shines. The car got caught in a hailstorm while it was being repaired in Sierra Vista (so the mechanic told me). I patched the holes with some goop I got at Michael's, so at least it doesn't leak. The top is also fraying in the corner (see bottom right of photo). I assume the convertible top isn't reusable. I've seen worse interiors in old cars. The seats are worn, but other than the split seam visible here, they're intact. Part of the driver's seat was re-upholstered in recent memory. The carpet isn't even in bad shape. The stereo and speakers were replaced in late 2014, and the sun visors were re-upholstered, and all are still in great shape. The rubber here has worn out. The other door's rubber is still in good shape, though. The weatherstripping was all replaced back in 2010, and is still in good shape. Like I said, this was a perfectly functional daily driver until recently. The view from the other door. One view of the engine compartment. Other than the motor (which is probably rusting away inside), the radiator (which just started leaking), and the condenser-fan switch, everything here is functional. The A/C works -- the blower motor was replaced last month -- but without the electric condenser fan, the car will run warm on the freeway if the A/C is on. Another view of the engine compartment. The tires were replaced recently, and are still in great shape. The car is close to drivable, but could also serve as a large reservoir of parts for someone with another 1987 Corvette. Someone could replace the radiator and have a usable Corvette, until the engine gives out (whenever that may be), or until next summer (when you'll want the electric condenser fan to work). I'm asking $2500, but will entertain lower offers. I was just trying to find a better home for my beloved old Vette before hauling it off to an undignified end at some charity. Please post replies in this forum, and if there is any serious interest, I'll share a phone number.

  18. What are you doing, right this instant?

    Spent the day at the Detroit Dream Cruise on Woodward Ave. a lot of wild stuff, saw a number of factory prototypes and new cars coming to market shortly. I mistepped and screwed my heel so I spent the afternoon/night on the curb encouraging burnouts...... some people love to spin their tires! Here's a truck modeled after Mad Max vehicles. The police had him pulled over to remove a person from the hanging cage on the hook. -Nice Cat street rod. -check out the tail lights seen at a Corvette shop. -I got lucky and scored an invite to the GM Heritage Center.... filled with all the custom show cars
  19. OVERHEATING and sputtering

    I posted this before. This all came out of my radiator. The car instantly ran 10-20 degrees cooler. I knew to periodically clean it, but I put it off on a few occasions. And this is the result.
  20. Last week
  21. I have a set of OEM GM Black Grand Sport Wheels for Sale. They were taken off a 2017 Collectors Edition with only 409 miles on them. The center caps are included. I just replaced them with Chrome OEM Z06 wheels. Asking $1395 for the 4 set. If interested, please text me at 480 510-0474
  22. I am really bummed. This has been an annual event for several years now and it has always been a blast. I have ideas for a couple of other cruises, but they longer distance/more time, meaning it would be more of an "all day" activity rather than a cruise to lunch/buzz home kind of thing. I will see what I can come up with. Maybe set something up for after the Prescott show.
  23. Awww come on, REALLY !

    and people wonder why I work nights Can enjoy the drive with the top off to and from.... ( when i remember to put it in the trunk and not on the road )
  24. First GS Vette

    Sure do, I had the first one in Roanoke VA, at 504 miles. About to change again.
