Thanks Joel.  I want to replace the blue dots, now I have a legal reason to do so.  My wife can't stop me now! I've already got a ticket for my license plate frame.  It was slightly covering the words "New Jersey".  Better then the speeding ticket.  Bob

You guys are making me feel good about myself.  I’m starting to get corky. Maybe I’ll try to replace the pinstripes and install the Indy decal myself???

 

As for the blue dots, now I have a legal reason to replace them.  My wife can’t stop me now.  I got a ticket because my license plate frame was covering the words “New Jersey”.  Better then the speeding ticket the cop could have given.

Wow! That really looks great. Nice job Bob.

When I tried to download the pictures nothing happened.  I looked again today.  I have the same color in my 82.  Looks really nice.

I don't know, Joel. They looked pretty faded to me (at Paul's BBQ), but who knows? On flea-bay things sell that I can't believe (isn't that another thread?), so I guess go for it!

Bob,

Your car looks pretty nice and as the others have said you did a great job on the in-ter-ior.....

For cleaning if you have a clothes pin for your nose I like a 1/2 & 1/2 solution of vinegar and water. A Q-tip as mentioned works great for those hard to get to areas.

As far as those tail lights I personally know a guy with a Black 76 Stingray who has a full set of the rear tailights with the buckets that go behind the bumper and the screws setting on the shelf in my er ah his g-rage.

You might be able to persuade me er ah .... dangit outta them......

                                                                                                   Tux...

The only problem with that, Tux, is the 78s have the one piece molded taillights! Nice offer, though!

So do the 76's.

They look like this with the exception of 2 which have the clear center for B/U lights.

Tailights

I have the complete light sets because mine were replaced with 80-82 style.....

Rich, The carpet is from ACC but I purchased it from Corvette Amercia. Its the original style, although I mounted the rear footman loops outside of the carpet.  I think it looks better and will last longer.  I think I'll retire from the carpet business, too stressful
 
Tux, if those lights work for me, I think we can work somethin out, but I do have an eyes on an NOS set.
 
Thanks Bob
