Stephan's SLC Build Log

Hello Jared,

Thanks for the positive feedback. I am doing this for a while and the SLC is not my first rodeo. I grew up near the Nuerburgring in Germany. Motorsports is sort of a genetic component over there. For those who are interested. Here are a few pictures of my previous project before the SLC. Only took me 10 years to restore it. It is a very early model 1963 Corvette Fuel Injected (September 1962). Lacquer paint, all original, matching numbers, 360 horses high compression engine. She takes 103 octane "Leaded". A very demanding old lady! Bought it 18 years ago when I came into the country.

Enjoy

That is how I finished the weekend work. Front brake system entirely done. Moving aft... The factory brake lines didn't fit the new locations of the -3 AN bulkhead. All new lines lines for clutch and rear brakes have been installed. Those are now one piece lines without connection under the body.

The Vette is a gem. We are neighbors of sorts. Hopefully the Vette is parked for the winter, so much salt.

Thanks again and no worries. I managed to put 1500 miles on it since I own it. Never saw rain, salt or even washed her. Just a damp cloth, that is it. No wax or preservatives. Most of the time she is inside her hyperbaric chamber, a huge plastic bubble to prevent oxidation from condensation. Along the way you can PM me and we can meet when the temperatures go up.

Cheers
