Finally, back on the road!

Post by Bret Mullikin on Mon Jul 04, 2016 12:51 am

It's been 6 long years and a lot of help from you guys.  I've got a lot of work left to do, but it's great to be driving her again.  I took some pictures more current than 12 years old and not through a second story apartment window.  I hope you like them.  Thanks again!

The twin to mine (almost). I removed my bumper guards and plate holder. Is that a pinstripe that goes over the wheel wells and along the bottom of the quarter? I've got to get a set of those mirrors. I heard they were the same as on the late second gen Camaros. Great job.

Hmmm. I may be interested in that. Do they have the remote feature on the drivers side? I'd rather just adjust them myself instead of dealing with the cabling for the remote set up.

Damon...be aware that sport mirror bases are not the same shape as chrome mirror bases. Mention it only from the standpoint that the paint may be a different shade outlining where portions of the chrome base was.

Thanks, everyone. Nice looking car, Damon! That is a pin stripe - double white. I replaced the driver's side mirror a few years ago with some help here. There's a few threads about getting the right base. My original was a sports mirror, however. I agree with getting a manual adjust if possible. My cables are loose and don't work well. The next step is replacing the vinyl strip in the middle. I have the replacement, but am a little worried about tearing off the old one. Anyway, 250 miles down and it runs better every mile.

Congrats getting it back on the road. That's got to be a good feeling. I'll be there soon enough.
