Uno mas...Corvair is a perfect rolling toolcart for offsite work, here carrying all relevant tools to stick a new SBC into a pal's '57 Bel Air.
Better'n a pickup any day.

Got the proper remote mirror assembly for my early 1966 Corsa convertible. Now I have one that is both Correct and Right. Very pleased!

I took photos and put all the pieces in baggies, so there's an outside chance I can get it back together, Matt.

Problem is that every time you clean or paint one thing, the thing next to it looks shabby. This car is very stock, so I want to stick pretty close to original with the right labels and such, but the unrelenting black is pretty oppressive.I have this urge to paint the three air cleaners gold.

Got the factory blue off the whitewalls on the 4 new zapatos for Red. Taking them to my local tire guy to get mounted. Wanted the car to have good looking shoes for its trip to Peachtree City. Old tires are probably 10 years old but since the car is inside 99% of the time wasn't worried about aging out, had one tire pick up a nail that ruined a tire so figured now was time...

Putting the Maxxis 185/80-13 back on.

Checked on progress on the Greenbrier yesterday after work.
Photo 1 was taken after strippin the front panel and finding multiple repairs.
Photo 2 was taken of the partial front panel I purchased at the Corvair Ranch Open House in May (Just in case it would be needed)
Photo 3 was taken yesterday after the front panel section had been installed which saved the body man lots of aggravation and me a few dollars probably.

In order to replace the front panel center section, the outer lower corner panels were removed. The one on the passenger side had been welded on in one place rather than bolted.

Repairs in other sections are progressing as well.

Here are a few photo's of the front lower corner areas after the panels were removed along with one of the repaired driver side frame box area.

Keep in mind that my goal is NOT to have a vehicle I so nice I will be afraid to actually use it. It will not be a concours show van during my time with it.

Been having a time dialing in the YH, even on the newly constructed engine. Finally got it humming nice, so I took the Bluvair out for a spin the other night. I need much brighter lights, but it was good to have it purring.
