Ok, been a while, here's what's up. Ordered new t top liners, sun visors, armrests, floor mats, head lights, and some misc window hardware. Will post some before-after pix as it all comes in.
Oh, and found an unopened red silver anniversary Jim Beam decanter on eBay for $50. I'll post a pic or two of that, as well.
Well, I found what I believe to be an L-82 aluminium manifold, seems to work fine. Because I am planning it as a resto-mod, I'm not hung up on numbers matching, vintage perfection. At some point I want the body, interior and wheels to look stock; suspension, engine and tranny I want the latest and greatest.

$500.00 Bucks!!!! You got a deal, my friend. We are all here to help each udder!!
Vette(s): 1974 coupe. 350 CID with Turbo 400 trans. Decal says 8.5:1 compression. Needs paint and AC replaced but don't plan on full restoration. Car runs strong. No big problems so far. 67,000 miles on Odometer, probably rolled over
Is this the paint that was on the car when you bought it? It looks great. $500.00 is a steal. I can see you have invested a lot in bringing it back to life but you have done well sir. I paid $7500.00 for my 1974 in 2003 and thought I did good. I am just starting my restoration nine years later.
It has been over a year since I started. I had to quit the project so
the car just sat in the garage. I was able to get started again in May 2012. As of July 27 2012 I have done the fiberglass repairs and applied Slick Sand High Build Primer.
Been busy, haven't had time to work on the car, or post. Now, where were we? Oh, yeah! Got the manifold on, egr is in place, but I have no extra vacuum lines, and I am not seeing a place to put one! So, anyone know where the line from the EGR valve terminates or attaches? Did a search, and all I found was a headlight vacuum schematic.

Also...you should have a decal on the driver side, right next to the hood latch on the firewall, that has the emissions vacuum diagram. Of course, it may not be there any more, but that's where they put them originally. I sent ya the diagram, anyway.
