Thought the boards have been a little slow so I thought I would see if we can create activity.
Was wondering what was your C3 winter project and if your C3 needed no attention over the winter how long will it be until its time to get it out so you can give it a cleaning/polishing for this upcoming year.

I may uncover mine this weekend so I can start the clay barring process and then get a couple good coats of Zaino applied so it can slide thru the air. I alos need to do an oil/filter change. No road driving yet but not far away now!!

No winter projects for the vette this year. Unhappy
Probably a good thing since our relentless winter was kicked off with a storm that yielded 7ft. of snow. Plus last winter I spent too much $$ doing the LS swap. Shocked 
Hopefully in a few weeks it will be nice enough to wake 'er up for the cruising season. Big smile

I ran away and hid from the snow.  Still in the process of hiding and enjoying myself.  Just speckin' out some new digs and roadways to abuse here in AZ.

No Real "car" winter projects this year.  Been working on some house winter projects.   Bought a new front door with side lights....needs to be stained before being installed.  Plus been redoing my bathroom (pulled out the vanity to strip & restain), Drywall work , etc.  Once weather is a little warmer, hoping to do the heater core & replace seat foam in my seats.....not enough room in the garage right now.....lol

Stripped my 75 to frame waiting for snow to melt so can take outside to sandblast.  Putting lights back together after refurbishing them, gas tank painted and ready .  Gonna plow the driveway out from shed in town so can take my 92 to body shop to have stress cracks fixed on fenders.

No real projects for me this winter.  However I am planning on getting my chambered exhaust re-hung early this spring.
It was originally installed by me and some buddies with a bunch of beer, so I'm finally going to let the pros do it.

Winter Projects!!  75 is on the ramps getting a new pinion seal. I also have the heater box out to replace the heater core and new deverter valve gaskets. Flushing radiator and replace all hoses and thermastat. Replacing all belts.  Doors are getting window regulators rebuilt, and replacing the inside and outside window felts. Check tires and spair, do a LOF and then give the old girl a good wax job. I think the she will be ready for the big trip to NY. OH then I will start on the 72 to get it ready for the big trip.  WE are looking forward to this trip. ARE WE THERE YET?????? 
 
PS: IS THE SNOW GONE

Had to replace the fuel sending unit and am in the middle of cleaning up the surface rust on the upper windshield frame.

Just bought a used motorhome, so fixing little minor things on that to get it ready to go are on the front burner.

First let me say that I know everyone east of the Miss. has been getting pounded this year. I lived in WI., MI. and OH., for the first 50+ years of my life so I know what you're going through. All I can say on this end of the country, winter was nada and we're having the best spring in the five years I've lived here. My winter projects have included a lot of work out in the garage, fertilizing the lawn and mowing. Supposed to be almost 70 tomorrow !!
 
So now on to the serious stuff - my Corvette projects so far this year:
 
1. New radiator in January - wow what a difference.
 
2. Orig. carb rebuild and dist. timing tune - huge difference x 2.
 
3. Correct/date coded alternator rebuilt and installed a few weeks ago.
 
4. Just installed a correct/date coded rebuilt starter this week.
 
5. The rebuild of my original water pump is done and should be on it's way back.
 
6. When the original water pump is back in, then it's time for all those fancy GM belts, hoses etc.
 
On a side note, while I was replacing front sway bar bushings and rear leaf spring cushions, I verified I still have the original, date coded shocks. Hmmmm, 43 year old shocks, pretty good shape, no leaks and they still ride great - but their 43 years old !!!!

Had a big winter, project wise on my car. Replaced rear diff with Bair's rebuilt unit, got the body mounts replaced, replaced leaking gas tank, replaced heater core (still need to do hoses yet) so far. Still alot to do but mostly smaller stuff. Hope to get most done by May.  Lost my lead mechanic to knee surgery Cry (not me) so it might not all get done
