Red 1984 Corvette after polishing

A big improvement

I spent some time polishing the Corvette. After dealing with old cars, some of which are not taken care of well, I’ve learned that a little polish can go a long way. Instead of re-painting the whole car, we are looking at re-painting sections of it. We bought a C4 Corvette parts car and will be picking it up sometime next week. It has most of the interior goodies (including a dash, WOO HOO!) and we can sell the rest of the parts.

As far as the wiring harness….That might be a bit of a challenge. The ’84 was in the process of being converted into a race car. The dash and console were removed, and the wiring harness has some….shall we say, interesting….shortcuts. Most of the wiring harness is sitting in a pile where the passenger seat should be. Glad that somebody left a Haynes manual behind. I have a dash/body interior wiring harness from a 1987, plus the rest of the 1984 wiring harness (that was removed) so here’s hoping we can figure something out.
