    I've seen a lot worse. I wonder if it would be possible to bond a strip of fiberglass sheet about 1/4 in thick to the back of that area holding it straight.

    I can't help you with the paddle shift but ACI makes some nice spoilers and other parts for the C6. We toured the facility during a past CAC Cruisefest and it is a quality operation.

    The 3735236 crank was a forged 3.00 inch stroke crank used in 283 engines. I don't think you see any cast 283 cranks until up in the mid '60s. This casting number was used under part number 3760042...

    Welcome to the CAC. That's going to be a fun project. I'd give that polish a try and see how it comes out. Sometimes it's necessary to do a light color sanding first but it all depends on the...

    This is good stuff. I have one of these to do someday. I replaced my original way back when good used ones were still available. $35.00 well spent. The original is stored in the basement.

    Get it on a lift. Start the engine and check for exhaust leaks. This also gives you a chance to check the under side of the body panels for damage repair, check the brakes for leaks (right side...

    I don't have those tools but have you checked with Auto Zone or O'Reilies? I know that they have loanout tools for many operations. A valve spring compressor is common enough that I would think they...

    My '65 had slop in the ring and pinion. It didn't howl but there was excessive backlash. For a clunk upon accel and decel I'd first check the u-joints then the differential. Get it in the air and...

    I have toured ACI and they make a quality product. It isn't that far for you to travel to check out their facility. I'm sure they would like to show you around.
