Re: 67 427 B.B. 435HP Vette original

one thing that we learned from this project is, alway,Always! make sure you have the right policy for your insurance on your car. the customer only had regular insurance on this car not collectors and they were only going to give us 5 grand to fix everything. we couldn't even get the front clip for this car for 5 grand, so he made a costly mistake, don't let it happen to you.

Amazing! You guys do beautiful work.

How about some tips on how you clean up the engine compartment and the interior after you perform surgery like that?

You are right about the collector insurance coverage. I had it on my Chevelle and was really happy I did when it caught on fire. They paid almost 20K to fix the car. Classic coverage is actually cheaper than regular coverage.

Re: 67 427 B.B. 435HP Vette original

well usually before we even touch the car we cover off areas that we aren't going to touch to keep those areas clean as possible.
we usually just use a little show shine and wipe everything down and some none silicon interior cleaner... no real secrets just a little elbow grease
also when we get something that in-depth we try to talk the customers into painting the engine compartment as well which we did in this case. just for an over all better appearance of the car.

and on the rubber hose's (heater hose, radiator hose, ect.) we us 3M adhesive remover for some reason it works really good, but u have to be careful if the hose has writing on them like the vette does because sometimes it will take it off

I had one of those 2X3 intakes with the carbs for oval port heads (stolen) Sure wish I still had it! Outboard carbs were vacuum. The carbs are still avaliable, sold as MOPAR carbs. Sweet ride.
