I just noticed that you have 69 doors on the car. Was there a reason for this? I know a lot of people did that back in the day. Just wondering. You have an expected completion date yet?

Barry,

good eye!
Actually, when I bought the car the doors were on it allready.
Since my vette is "FAR FROM STOCK" I didn't bother to change them.
As far as completion, it should be within the next 4 /5 weeks.
I want to try to finish it before Corvettes at Carlisle, but I still have a lot of assembly to do once it comes back from getting it rubbed out, which may not be till next Monday.
Still saving up some money to complete also.!Cry
Joe

Man, I hope you CAN make Carlisle! I would sure like to see that car after reading about it all these years! Good luck! If you do make Carlisle, look us up! We'll be at the C3VR section!
