What Has One Of Our Members Done To His Corvette
« on: July 30, 2008, 09:38:03 PM »

As you all know I always have my trusty camera with me no matter where I travel.

Saw a familar car the other day so I squeezed off a picture.  When I went past again today the car was inside the building so I used my charm to get some photos from within.






Now we all know Brians C5................



What I want to know is why anyone would take a perfectly well running Corvette and do this to it...........


















So Brian, what are you up to, hmmmmmm?????? :22

Hi guys yes it looks a wreck doesn't it , for those who dont know I like Lambo ( Scissor ) doors. On some cars had seen some that were nice and on some they are magic. Saw some pic's of them on some C5 's and was wrapped particually on the convertable so got a set a while back and have been waiting to get them fitted.Found a nice young guy with a shop at Padstow that has done them on some other cars so we are under way, they are going to fix a couple of cosmetic issues while it there otherwise the car would probably be finished mid next week.Will take some more pic's as more comes off the car looking forward to being all back together :luv

A door  fitted and ready for adjustment before doing the second door.

Neat doors Brian.  DUAL opening, either standard outward OR upward.

Yes toyvet you can, there was an ex member with a 78 at the Queensland convention who had it done! I think Corvette Alterations & Conversions did the work?

Brian has lost it folks.  He has turned his Vette into a Ute. ;53



I still reckon he is sneaking it out of the country bit by bit.

You might be right there Smokem.  Seems that they are looking under the paint and now in the engine bay.  So what is it that you really do for a living Brian, Hmmmmmmmm??  ;39

The work continues.  Seems that once ya get Brian started there is no stopping him.  


With all the panels off and ready for paint.........











..........It was time to start stripping the gear out of the engine bay in preperation for pulling the top half of the motor down. Some make it go fast parts being fitted.









I understand that a few of the boys in the club pulled together to help Brian with the pull down. Well done lads ;42

Since your car is already registered in Australia, why not fill in those unsightly holes in your fenders?

That's better:
