    Well, my backup lights work, the turn signals work also but the green dash lights that indicate do not. I am concerned that the dash will have to be removed if the bulbs are burned out.

    Ok, so there is a fuse for just those indicator lights?
  3. Turn signal indicator lights do not work, in my 79

    I just picked up a 79 L48/350hr/370:1 gears. Paint is original, and great, interior is very good, all original. 67,000 miles. It has the original exhaust as well, I'm getting duels on Thursday. I...

    Thanks. I've about given up on buying this car. The bumper cover was the deal breaker.

    Ok, so I missed something. I didn't know about the reinforcement, but I've never removed a bumper cover either. Will it damage the cover if I attempted to remove it?
  6. I read the article. Unless I missed something...

    I read the article. Unless I missed something the article was about repairing polypropylene, not polyurethane. Polypropylene is thermal plastic, meaning it has a melting point, then it's molded. ...

    This might sound far fetched, but If I carefully backed the car into a towel wrapped poll until the bowed out spot is where it should be, and carefully heated the stressed area until it conformed...

    Your observation about the pulled out bumper cover was very astute. The possible paint damage that could occur if I try to straighten it is very possible, and I don't know what the bumper was like...

    This one is mine. Compare the bumpers and the bottom edge. I see the red one is pulled out. I am considering buying the red one. They are both 77's.

    could this be done without removing the cover? I've never removed one, but I've heard they don't always go back on nicely.
  11. wave in urethane bumper cover, can it be worked out?

    I've been trying to upload a pic of the rear of a 77. There is a wave where the lettering is in the urethane, and I would like to find a way to get it out.

    looking at a 77 L48

    I've been shopping for another vette, and I came across a 77 L48. Seems like a nice enough car, but I hear a noise in the tail pipes when running. Hard to describe a sound like this but it's a...

    I'm looking at a 79 frost blue l48 350thr. The color really looks white, but has a hint of baby blue. I can't find it as a color option that year. His mechanic attempted to fix the horn, but...

    The guy that owns the Corvette shop has done many many grease jobs, and he said there is no danger of damaging seals, also the grease migrates to the outer barrings. So, I had it done today. I'll...

    I have long tube headers, and true duels on my 77. Michigan doesn't seem to mess with emissions. I would NOT consent to a cop looking (searching) my car. EVER

    Yes, chambers are way too big. I do believe also the 882's can be prone to cracking, but not as bad as the 624 series that came a year later. It's 624 I believe, and they were very crack prone.

    It would depend on the asking price if you want numbers matching. There are all types. I know a guy with a 69 who just got done building a 454 to ove 500 something. Too much torque for a M21, and...

    Hey Tom, thanks for the info. I may look into the EDL 5073 heads from Summit. My guess is they will breath best, and give me better performance than vortecs anway. BTW, can you suggest a nice cam...
