Oh, Oh Frame Rot
There is frame rot on the area before the front wheels.
I have decide not to replace but to repair the frame.
Although the Stainless frame at http://rowleycorvette.com/frames-new.html is very tempting with the C4 suspension.

Finally found a 5th wheel on ebay is getting shipped atm.

Engine removed
Wanted to mount engine on engine stand but I have no bolts long enough.
Cheked in several shops but could not get them here, so I ordered some from the States.
Did not want to ruine my block with metric bolts.

Chassis
12/17/2006 12:27

we have lift-off :-)
Together with a giraffe hoist and a friend we managed to lift the body.
The body will go under a cover for now, first the chassis.

Making the dolly
I followed the Nolan Adams dolly instructions.
Had to convert inches to cm but it worked out fine, the meachures are exact.
I changed the height of the dolly to 65 cm iso 35cm, together with the wheels 80cm.
I did this so I can work underside of the car also.
