Well, its been a wile since I posted about Dainer's Rampside goings on!
Small details have continued. I changed out the car push button radio for a year correct, 1962, NOS FC radio. Love these old vacuum tube type radios. They seem to take forever to warm up and come alive!
I painted the alternator housing Black to better match the vintage of the engine compartment. I do know of an outfit that will convert vintage generators to alternators. But the price is out there and I like the availability of Delcotron alternator parts. So I'm thinking I will stick with this.
Something happened to the front bumper Chrome finish. It took on a strange tarnish look. I believe there may have been some reaction to different cleaners. Really not sure. So I removed it and installed a different re-chromed bumper. I will play with the tarnished one now that it's off the Rampy and try to clean it up.

Have been enjoying taking Dainers Rampside to local Car's & Coffee and other shows. Just last weekend was the All Gm show again in Woodland Hill's, Calif. As many of you know.... it's interesting how much attention our Corvair's get at public events.
I'm off to another this weekend. They park the cars in a star lineup going from the center of the field. The Rampside has been invited to be the center of the star. This should be interesting!

An immaculate Rampside and a pleasant owner. I'm a bi-weekly attendee of Conejo Cars & Coffee. A fair number of Corvairs are in attendance (maybe s-o-m-e-d-a-y..., my Lakewood will make it). So, if you have a Corvair or just like them come out and join us when this Covid 19 situation settles down.

Long over due shout out to Seth Emmerson - Silicone Systems Performance Products.

Seth fixed me up with these vintage style cloth covered spark plug wires for Dainers Rampside, a while back.

I was looking for a contrasting vintage look in my engine compartment, and these I feel nailed it!

Thanks so much again Seth!thumbs up smileys with beer

With the original style black cables, the engine box was a bit too dark.
I have had quite few great comments since I installed these. grinning smiley
