    I was about to post a reply when I discovered gmjunkie had responded with the pertinent info. You'll be happy to know you've just met the CAC C4 and C5 resident hillbilly Corvette expert!

    Junkie is a fine fella and very knowledgeable and helpful!

    Hi THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH I have been so disgusted with this car but maybe this will be an easy fix. You don't know how much I appreciate this. I can't say enough good stuff about this site. I did look and see if there was already a solution I didn't see one but I may have looked at the wrong place. THANKS AGAIN.

    HI AGAIN, great video thank you gmjunkie for posting it for me. That looks easy enough I believe a cave man could do it I may not can find a cave man these days I think I could even do it, I would like to try it. But seriously that has saved me alot of money because I know someone that would do that for me for nothing they are just not sure about working on corvettes they are just afraid to try something they don't know anything about. Great Great I am ready to go buy the unit and tools when the auto parts open up I hope they have it in stock THANKS AGAIN

    Is that rotor there to keep your mask from running away from what its hiding?
    C6 has been great for over 10 years, I'll miss her... Still more fun driving the '64 and the '72.
